Your Pet Store – Toronto Is Our Home
What is the biggest difference between The Dog Market and other pet stores in Toronto and the surrounding area?
We think it’s our stake in the continued success and close-knit feeling of the community we work and live in.
We are one of the very few pet stores owned and operated entirely by residents of the community.
The Best Pet Store
We just picked up our 2nd win for Best Pet Store in NOW Magazine’s Best of Toronto 2016 Readers’ Choice poll. Thanks to the support of our local community we’ve now won 2 years in a row!
Thanks to everybody who supported us. It means so much to know our community appreciates the extra effort we put into the everyday service we provide.
It’s been a great couple years, and we know it will continue!
Animal Lovers First – Business Owners Second
Each and every employee at The Dog Market is an animal lover. We have dogs, cats, fish, birds and all kinds of furry friends we come home to at night. And because we are animal people ourselves, we are active in all kinds of community events where we can get outside, get some exercise and spend some social time with our pets. Each and every year our staff participates in such events as:
- Woofstock, the largest and best festival for dogs in all of North America
- The Beaches Easter Parade, a tradition now for more than 45 years, with more than 50,000 in attendance this year alone
- The Toronto Waterfront Marathon, a chance to get out every year and show your community what you’re made of!
- Beaches International Jazz Festival – Now celebrating its 24th anniversary, the festival has blossomed into a 10-day event that attracts millions of fans and makes a major contribution to promoting Canadian jazz excellence in Toronto and on the world stage.
Whatever the event might be, we’re eager to get out and spend time in our community getting to know the people we serve and how we can improve our services and offerings.
Dogs And Cats – Mortal Enemies – Together Under One Roof
While dogs outnumber cats across the city of Toronto almost at a ratio of 2-1, we are not going to leave the kitties out in the cold. We’re cat owners too, and we provide all the great services and stock all the high quality products needed to make their lives a little more comfortable.
Both our wonderful and talented groomers specialize in breed specific cuts, such as Poodle or Schnauzer cuts. Carell has been with us for more than nine years now and maintains an excellent reputation throughout the Beach. Our second groomer, Tori, has been with us nearly five years and is also highly trained in cat grooming. Our obedience program is operated by Dorothy at Mother Knows Best Obedience School and is one of the most successful holistic style programs in Canada, adhering to Canadian Kennel Club standards regardless of breed.
