Northwest Pets

“We specifically choose our foods to meet a standard of no corn, wheat, soy or bi-products, to help pet parents feel confident that what they find on our shelves is good for their pets. Two of our three locations, (Eagle and Overland,) have a self-service dog wash. Our Eagle location has a Ruffwear store-within-a-store, (one of three in the nation,) that features high-quality gear for dogs, including coats, boots, backpacks, and harness and leash options. We love having pets and their parents visit the stores, and helping people find what best fits their pets’ needs. The bond between people and their pets is like no other, and we hope we can offer a place with products that help that bond grow even stronger.”

Holiday gift boxes are available for small, medium, and large dog breeds.
