I'm a lover of small businesses that work hard to get to where they're at, and even more of a fan of dog-related small business stores. I'm happy to send this shout-out to some friends of mine, Dana and Eric Peterson, who had their grand opening this weekend of Dexter's Dog Boutique - on Montgomery Street in the lovely town of Rhinebeck!
Dexter's Dog Boutique proudly offers a plethora of natural items made with love, many from around the Hudson Valley but ALL from the USA. You can find tasty treats made from wholesome natural ingredients like organic beef or turkey, cranberries and butternut squash; quality leashes and collars, and comfy dog beds to fit any size canine (I almost curled up in one myself!). They carry some of the best holistic and nutritious food brands out there, like Fromm's and Wellness CORE (grain-free). And let's not forget the all-important toys and chews to satisfy our best four-legged friend's energy. Dexter's carries Planet Dog's Orbee-Tuff line (one of my favorites, as you can see from my article The Best Items for Your Best Friend in my Training Library), durable tug toys made of recycled firehose and plastic bottles, and natural chews such as antlers, bully sticks and beef trachea to help keep your dog's teeth healthy. Their prices are very reasonable, and the service is great - Dana and Eric are committed to helping their shoppers pick the best items for their best four-legged friends!
So if you find yourself visiting the Rhinebeck area, or even if you're looking for a fun drive to take on an upcoming spring day, make Dexter's Dog Boutique at 6423 Montgomery Street in Rhinebeck your doggie-shopping destination. You won't be disappointed, and neither will your pup!
