Small Business Saturday will fall on November 25th this year and I thought it would be a great idea to feature some small businesses within our dog community.
These small dog businesses focus on dog products we love and use, dog-related products, and/or small businesses that are owned and operated by fellow Newfie owners.
I know that Small Business Saturday was started to focus on local businesses that add to their area’s economy but I wanted to do it to focus on our small pet businesses economy.
I only know of a handful of locally owned small businesses that are dog-related so I reached out to our community on social media and asked for their favorites.
My goal was to have at least 50 small businesses on this list and made that number plus a few more!
These dog-owner-owned small businesses are either owned by Newfie owners or came recommended by fellow Newfie owners!
Before we get to the list, please keep in mind that these small businesses came recommended by fellow dog owners or Newfie owners within our online social media community and are based on their connection with these businesses. For these services or items, it is up to each individual to do their research to determine if these services or items are best for you or your dog.
If a business has a website, I link to that.
If a business doesn’t have a website, I link to Etsy or one of their social media profiles.
