Dogologie as a concept is a criss-cross of friendship: people to people, people to dog, it doesn’t matter. We are a highly inclusive group of people who care deeply about turning what we have learned from dogs into a culture, an atmosphere. In our store, everyone is welcome and belongs, human or animal, dog-lover or not. We exist as a small beacon for the attitude and loyalty of people who care for each other and the wonderful animals we call friends.
The reality of being dog-obsessed is that it’s inconvenient. Having another member of the family with claw-paws, an entire body covered in shedding hair and a propensity to drool by the quart has an impact on everything from the clothes you wear to the cars you drive. So what do faithful friends do? They help you wherever and however you need it. Being a companion to the dog-lover lifestyle means helping out in any way we can. Have a small dog that gets cold in the winter? We have a sweater for them. Have a large dog that needs some restraining? We have harnesses. Need a babysitter for the kids? We've got some names for you. Not sure where to eat? We know the spots. See, products are only one component of the dog-loving life. Sometimes you just need a friend to be excited with you or someone to gush over your new puppy. You may need advice or recommendation. Dogologie isn’t just a retail experience, it’s all of these things.

We are tied together by a family-like bond, captured in a few simple ideas that govern how we treat each other and care for the guests who walk in our doors.
We Value Fun
Be happy! Take play seriously.
This is supposed to be fun! People get dogs for their indomitable positivity, and we reflect this in the way we enjoy our work
We Value Each Other
Work like a family.
Whatever you do affects the people you care about. They are here to support you and you are here to support them.
We Value Relationship
Listen to people and give their dogs the best.
Go ahead, make yourself available, take as long as you need to understand. Then recommend whatever you believe is best for that person or dog. It doesn’t need to profit us, it just needs to help them.
We love dogs, dearly, but we never lose sight of people. Our human guests are still the top priority. What you experience here should be an open and welcoming place that’s characterized by our values. Whether working with us online or in-person, we’re a culture of helpfulness and friendliness. We are here to be a companion to your journey.
