Even if I am traveling without North, I can't pass by a local pet shop without a stop in. I love when the owners take the time to seek out independent vendors with extraordinary products to lavish on our pals. If I wasn't here being PetSugar, I'd love to have a little boutique of my own! I'd certainly take inspiration from Columbus's Posh Pets, which offers the finest dog and kitty goodies. Its online store only hints at the variety (like a Catnip Body Pillow and the Pimpin' Tank), so if you're in the area, stop in for more.

This shop is located in the Short North Arts District, a hip area of town with galleries, boutiques, and cafés. Take a pooch for a shopping stroll to check out the sights, and stop at Emack and Bolio's if the weather's nice for a lactose-free doggie treat sundae for his good behavior!
