Our Story

"Life is better with a dog." Actually in our case there are two, Derby and Oaks. The excitement of coming home every day to wagging tails and wet kisses fill our hearts. From day one our dogs have been outfitted in fashionable apparel and matching accessories, and of course they have a ridiculous amount of toys.  We too love fun dog inspired items especially if they make us smile and laugh, but they are usually hard to find. Why not create a store putting today's dog and their humans at the forefront?

We knew the answer and with Derby and Oaks' blessing we decided it was time to create a new dog-focused retail concept. November 2021, we opened The Dog Shop in the heart of Louisville’s NuLu District. You will notice we are not a "traditional" pet store. Our products are carefully curated from mostly in-house exclusives, small businesses, and up and coming brands. We also have access to trending, online only brands, which gives you an opportunity to judge fit, feel, and quality in person
