Natalie who studied Criminology at university, began working with dogs, running a professional dog walking business and volunteering for dog rescues, whilst her children were young. She says; “Running a business is so much more than just making a living – it’s the passion behind what we do. For me, that passion began in my 20s. I had always loved and cared for animals but there was a point in my life where I realised just how much I needed dogs, and just how much dogs need us too. Although I loved my career in social care, I always came back to working with dogs.” Having worked with dogs for several years, Natalie noticed that most of her clients would travel to Edinburgh or buy their premium dog food online. Her passion for dogs and dog nutrition led her to question why healthy dog food and supplies were not available to dog owners locally, and NB Dogs was born.
It’s not your traditional pet shop – the inviting and calming space is tastefully decorated with rustic handmade furniture, potted plants, sheepskin and a comfy Chesterfield sofa to relax on. Dogs of all shapes, sizes and temperaments are welcome. In fact, NB Dogs has become a hub, a cosy environment, where dog owners can network, seek advice and attend monthly workshops with dog trainers and other pet industry professionals. Natalie explains; “Our mission is to create long-lasting relationships with each of our customers. We are passionate about dog welfare and this extends to a commitment to help owners foster a full and rewarding life with their dog. Our website recommends local dog trainers who use positive, science-based methods and we hold monthly workshops to support dog owners too.” NB Dogs are also committed to the environment including using less plastic, and customers are encouraged to use their own bags and buy treats in bulk option using their own tubs.
With a warm welcome, friendly advice and a gorgeous array of premium products, it’s a boutique worth popping in to. Your dog will thank you!
