With roots in Grimsby for 19 years, I realized many years ago that not only is this a great family town, but one where dogs have a very big presence in family life. You will never walk or drive for very long without seeing happy dogs and their owners walking (or running) the streets of Grimsby. I recognized a real need to do something wonderful for our canine friends, and wanted to offer high quality goods, services, and customer service that wasn't available locally! And so...The Dog Spot was born.
In the pictures below, you can meet my dogs...Jessie is my lab/shepherd cross, and Jack is my black lab. George, my 14.5 year old yellow lab, sadly passed away on August 29, 2013. He was an amazing family guardian and represented all that is good with dogs. He made so many people smile since becoming a regular store fixture in February 2013, and I was fortunate to have so many people play a positive role in his life. Thanks especially to all of the kids that made his tail wag more than anything in the world. He is sadly missed, but his legacy and gentle soul will never be forgotten.
If your family is considering adding a canine family member to your home, please explore dog adoption. Jack, Jessie and George came to me through wonderful organizations...the Hamilton Burlington SPCA, Lab Rescue in Oakville, and the Georgian Triangle Humane Society in Collingwood. There are so many great organizations out there that can provide your family with a wonderful dog that fits your family's needs.
