Several years ago, Kathy Patterson began a journey to search for ways to restore the health and well-being of her beloved Labrador, KC. And it was while focusing on finding holistic alternatives for KC’s health issues that Kathy found her passion.
Seeing first-hand the positive effects these methods had on KC’s health, Kathy continued to pursue knowledge and training in this area of pet care and nutrition. This led to her ongoing studies with Clayton College of Natural Healing—where she continues to focus on “Holistic Care for Companion Animals” today.
During this personal journey, Kathy and her husband Craig came to realize a dream: Founding a place to share with other pet owners the holistic health and wellness information and products they discovered. That place is Barking Dogs.
Opening the doors of Barking Dogs here in Las Vegas was an exciting first step. In just a few short years, our store has grown, relocated to a larger site, expanded further—and has yet another growth-spurt coming soon. Along the way, our services, products, and knowledge have expanded, too—and we rejoice in the ability to share it all with our many loyal customers.
Bringing a whole-body approach to caring for your pet means that Kathy and Craig Patterson don’t just offer their customers what’s popular. They offer what’s best for your pet. Having this clear purpose and passion is what makes Barking Dogs different from other pet stores.
In some ways, the term “holistic” tends to be a bit overused these days. But authentic holistic care truly is at the heart of everything that we do at Barking Dogs. It’s our firmly held belief that proper pet care encompasses the healthiest, most natural approach to whole body health for your pet. That means we encourage achieving optimum levels of Wellness, Behavior, Exercise, Cleanliness, Grooming, and Feeding regimens for your pet.
That’s also why our customers will find that we offer the highest quality of pet foods, herbal remedies, products and techniques. “Bonding” time with your pet in our self-wash facilities, or top-quality grooming services. Even a deluxe bakery case filled with fresh, hand-made healthy treats for special (and everyday) occasions. And even more unique services and products will be added with our upcoming expansion.
As with humans, we know that when it comes to our pets—it’s easier to stay healthy—than it is to get well again. That’s one of the reasons we’re proud to say many of the foods that we offer are of human-grade quality. If your pet has special needs, or if you simply want to start your puppy on the right nutritional path in life – we’ll be happy to provide a courtesy consultation that will prove invaluable to you in the years to come.
Keeping your pet healthy and happy is what Barking Dogs is all about. We’re here every day – to share our passion for animals – with you.
