Xander the pitbull and Neco the husky love their sugar cookie shampoo. They also love their Between Baths Spritz.
“I’ve also never heard them complain about their Maverick collars or Ombre beds,” said their owner Jammie White.
Pet boutiques are not just for small dogs.
Jammie’s Fancy Paws Boutique carries collars, leashes, dog coats, dog shampoo and dozens of other products.
“A lot of people are under the impression that pet boutiques are only for small breed dogs and that boutique owners own smaller breeds,” Jammie said. “But that is not the case at all.”
Jammie said she loves all dogs but tends to favor the larger breeds.
“No offense to all the adorable shih tzus out there,” she said.
But shih tzus have little reason to feel offended.
If you browse through Fancy Paws Boutique’s web site, you will see dozens of small dog products such as raincoats, sundresses, harnesses and bejeweled collars.
Fancy Paws Boutique is a place where dogs of any size (and their owners) can shop.
Not all products fit larger dogs, but Jammie said this trend is starting to change as manufacturers realize big dog owners also like to spoil their pets.
To make shopping easier, big dog owners can browse through the special big dog clothes section. Some products do slip through the cracks so it’s always good to check the other categories as well, Jammie said.
Dog products online
Fancy Paws Boutique is unique because its customers are not just customers, Jammie said.
For example, one customer’s daughter wanted a new carrier for her Yorkie puppy that was not listed on Fancy Paws, Jammie said.
“He sent me a picture of what she wanted and I tracked it down for them and added it to my selection so he could get her exactly what she wanted. How’s that for customer service?”
Jammie gets to interact with her customers often, as she does everything from designing the site to selecting what products to sell to answering questions.
Her passion for animals, combined with her desire to start her own business gave her the idea for Fancy Paws. Losing her office job last year was all the encouragement she needed to dedicate more time to her online business.
Dog clothes and accessories
One of the best sellers at Fancy Paws Boutique includes the Between Baths Spritz, Jammie said. The Charleston Quilted Snuggle Bed, the Army Green Fleece Hoodie and the Hex Martingale Collars are also popular.
“Other products such as our carriers and feeders, along with some of the designer dog beds are not ones you will see on just any boutique site,” Jammie said.
For dogs that live in places like Fargo, she suggested the Doggyback Jacket Pack which comes with a part that can be warmed in the microwave to keep dogs extra cozy. For larger dogs, Jammie recommends the Polar Fleece Coat or the Brown Plaid Fleece Coat.
