Caring for your pets as if they were our own
We are a Natural Pet Retailer and Dog Grooming studio based in the market town of Chagford on the edge of Dartmoor. We were the old Nat West Bank and have a lovely double fronted outlook. All of the furniture in our shop is recycled, some being from the old Chagford Primary School, packing that the dog bath came in (this is now our reception desk!)and our old kitchen table! We are proud to say we haven’t bought anything new.
Having started my original business as Pet Ranger (Dog walking, pet sitting and dog grooming) in 2002, working from home in our converted garage, I had always wanted to have a shop. Using natural products made in the UK has always been something I have done and am now very pleased to be able to offer this to you.
All of our products food, treats, dog and cat bowls, toys, beds, shampoo, natural remedies and more are made in the UK and as close to Chagford as possible.
Our of range food and treats are made from natural products with no artiﬁcial chemicals or ﬁllers.
The shampoos we use in our grooming studio and sell, are chemical and paraben free, with natural ingredients. We like to recycle when we can and have a shampoo reﬁll station. Once you have used the shampoo, bring back your bottle and we will ﬁll it for you. It is cheaper and saves on plastic too.
The range of cat and dog toys are our own range. The dog toys are made locally to Chagford from recycled jeans and ﬁlled with my sheep wool. Our cat toys are made from local felt, ﬁlled also with sheep wool and organic cat nip, these are compostable.
We are the only drop off point in West and North Devon for the Terracycle Pet Food Packaging Recycle Scheme, taking plastic cat and dog, food/treat packets and pouches - clean of course! We send these to Terracycle, they reconstitute this back to plastic, making benches, fence posts and lots more as a result. We accumulate points for the weight we send to them and in return are given points and money to donate to a charity of our choice.
We offer impartial advice for all of the products we sell. If you are looking for a new food or treats for your dog or cat, puppy or kitten then we can help. Our range of products are made in the UK, low in fat, no meat, grain free, raw, fresh or dried just let us know and we can point you in the right direction.
The right nutrition is so important for your pets. High quality is the answer. Hypoallergenic foods help those with issues. The better the quality the food, the less you need to feed, the less waste they produce, the better their overall health and less expense at the vet. A lot of health issues can be down to nutrition. Skin complaints, itchy ears, bad breath, hyperactivity……have you looked to see what is in your pet’s food?
The range of alternatives we can offer for stress, stiff or painful joints, intestinal hygiene, tick and ﬂea repellant are all made in the UK and free from harmful chemicals.
Our grooming studio is especially equipped with both a hydraulic bath and grooming table to help those larger dogs who can’t be lifted to access them. It is a quiet environment, we don't use cages and take our time, which is invaluable for the ﬁrst time grooms, puppy grooms and older dogs too. A tennis ball in the room helps to relax most of them….nothing like a quick game to make them feel at ease! Our shampoos are natural, paraben free and will suit a variety of skin conditions. We offer everything from a full breed speciﬁc groom to a wash and blow dry, pawdicure of fringe and face tidy.
Grooming is available Tuesday - Thursday 10-4pm by appointment only, on Fridays we offer a “Pawdicure”-4 paw nail clip, “Face and Fringe Tidy”-to keep your doggie smart between grooms, “Matt clip off”-for those matts behind the ears! Drop in from 10-4pm, no appointment needed.
