Rusty - The Shop Dog

Highest quality products available at competitive prices.

When you come to our store, you’ll find everything from an array of quality food and treats to chic beds and bowls, locally-made collars and leashes to popular grooming products – all thoughtfully selected to benefit your pet while delivering you value.

Check us out for your KC needs.

We offer Dub Dog collars, which are top quality and made by a former Hallmark designer. We carry a large selection of  cookies from Lawrence’s Lucky Dog Bakery. And of course, we carry Taste of the Wild, a very popular, affordable dog food manufactured in Meta, MO. Plus we have Chiefs gear in a range of sizes from tiny teacups to massive Mastiffs.

Got a question? We’re here to help. Already know what you want? We’ll stay out of your way.

For every member of the Tail Waggin’ team, welcoming customers is the best part of the job, made even better when they are answered with a wagging tail and an occasional sloppy kiss. Every dog is greeted with the offer of a treat. And for pet parents, if you would like to try a new pet food or need some expert suggestions, just let us know. We are always happy to send you home with free samples of both dog and cat food.

Need some help in the DIY Bathing area? Our online cbd store at Our is team is always happy to help – especially for those who are using the bathing facilities for the first time.

There aren’t a lot of options for down-towners to buy items for their pets, and I think most people expect this place to be way more expensive than PetSmart and other chain stores because of its location.

I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how reasonably priced snacks/toys/other items are. I’ve almost exclusively purchased bones/rawhides/non-daily food items from this store since it opened.

-- Merrie & Alan

Alan and Merrie moved to Kansas City from the Washington DC region to be with family and opened the store on July 18, 2014. The PetStop is their first venture into retail – they have journalism/marketing backgrounds – and it builds on their love of animals. They have had several dogs and cats over the years; currently they have Rusty, a Norwich terrier mix who often “helps out” at the shop. One thing they delight in: the great reviews they have collected on Google and Yelp!
