Best Places To Go Holiday Shopping For Pets In Metro Detroit

It's almost Christmas time, and you're done shopping for the humans on your list, but that doesn't mean you're done with your shopping! Your pets deserve a special treat as well. Check out this list for the best places to find holiday gifts for your pets in the metro Detroit area.
Premier Pet Supply
31215 Southfield Road
Beverly Hills, MI 48025
(248) 220-3351

Premier Pet Supply was voted "Best Pet Supply Store" in Metro Detroit on the Detroit A-List, "Vote 4 the Best," and "HOUR Detroit" magazine, so it's no surprise that it has a superb 5-star overall rating on Yelp as well. The store was opened in July 1992 by Ray Hesano, who wanted to offer a "clean, bright store that offered cutting-edge items at a great price," and later on, his nephew Mike Palmer, now the face of Premier Pet Supply, began working with him. Premier Pet's focus is on natural/holistic foods, supplements and treats for pets, and you can find bowls, beds and more as a present for your pup or other pet there.

Three Dog Bakery

Plymouth, MI 48170
(734) 453-9663

If your puppy is a fan of yummy treats, check out Three Dog Bakery, located in downtown Plymouth. The bakery creates cakes, biscuits and cookies, all of which are all-natural, and they would be a great holiday treat for your dog. If your have a cat, the bakery can help you out there too; they have "We Pity the Kitty" cat treats for your pet, made from freeze-dried chicken or salmon (your choice). The bakery also has a large selection of gift items for pets, including gift baskets, spa items (shampoos/conditioners), sports collars/leashes, pet toys and bowls and dishes.

Dogma Catmantoo
208 N. 4th Ave.
Ann Arbor, MI 48104
(734) 368-9691

Dogma Catmantoo is located in the Kerrytown area of Ann Arbor and has been in business for the past thirteen years, re-opening last year under new ownership and some fresh store updates. The store sells treats and toys for your pup (or cat), as well as apparel, collars, beds and bowls. You can also bring your pet into the store for its monthly "Yappy Hour," where both you and your pet will enjoy snacks. Dogma is a great place to outfit your pet as well; its apparel selection is extensive, which would make for a great holiday gift.

Bloomfield Hills, MI 48304

Maestros Dog Haus's mission is to help you feed your pet the healthiest food, with the "safest feeding bowls" and the "comfiest dog beds." All of its dog food is grain-free, and its dog beds range from leather furniture, to cute/comfy, to orthopedic. A great gift idea from Maestros would be one of its dog houses/crates, which also double as end tables for your home, or perhaps a special occasion cake if your pup likes treats. Maestros also makes custom food bowls, made out of your choice of material (granite, quartz, slate and marble, with ceramic/spun aluminum bases).
