Embark Dayton Dog Supply to open in downtown Dayton
“We noticed there are a lot of dogs in Dayton, but there aren’t a lot of pet stores in town, at least not downtown,” Ben said. “So we saw this as a great opportunity to come in and hopefully provide downtown residents with a great resource for their dog’s needs.”
In addition to bandanas, the store mainly focuses on personalized leashes.
The store offers other products like collars, grooming supplies and accessories. An interactive build-your-own-leash “workshop” will also be a unique and central feature of the store.
With the opening of their first brick and mortar, EmBARK is also expanding into dog food.
“We’re going to specialize in raw foods and treats,” Ben said. “We believe this is the best diet for dogs and the most appropriate for the species. There are many studies that support the benefits of a raw, species-appropriate diet for dogs. We will strive to educate and be a resource for dog nutrition.
Non-raw food options for all dog diets will also be available. In the future, the store plans to offer basic items for other pets, including cats.
EmBARK will celebrate its grand opening with a “Pawty!” Saturday, Jan. 29 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. “The first puppies out the door will receive a free bandana and a doggie bag full of samples, coupons, and treats for their human,” according to the event page.
A “doggy photographer” will also be in the shop during the opening celebration to take pictures of the owners and their puppies for the shop’s Instagram wall.
