Bow Wow Meow Pet Company
When John Scanlan, his wife Natalie, and rescue dog “Buddy” moved to Santa Rosa Beach from Atlanta in 2010, he had only one thing in mind - to open a holistic, eco-friendly, and unique pet shop. Bow Wow Meow now caters to pet owners who want only the best for their dogs and cats. The shop carries a wide variety of organic pet food, pet gear, and products to keep pets clean and healthy.
As a bonus, Bow Wow Meow has two private self-washing rooms for your dog. Each room has a 58-inch-long stainless steel tub with an adjustable platform for smaller breeds in addition to a walk up ramp to guide your dog into the tub. The rooms are equipped with an array of high quality shampoos, conditioners, finishing products and an air dryer. Customers who have used the washing area rave that it’s cleaner than most human bathrooms.
“I never intended for the self-wash to take off like it has…it was just an extra benefit, but this feature has become an integral part of our business. When you leave here after a self-wash, your dog is free of fleas and ticks, shedding hair, and is nice and dry,” says John.
Over the years, John’s local customers have dictated what products he carries-as long as it’s holistic. The curated selection of dog and cat foods and treats include Dr. Harvey’s, Sojo’s, Pure Vita, Petcurean, Taste of the Wild, and Natural Balance among others. John also carries raw frozen foods, with doggie frozen yogurt becoming a popular treat.
Pet gear at Bow Wow Meow caters to the beach dog, with items including beach dog clothing, life jackets and surf toys. The shop also stocks eco-friendly beds, leashes, collars, water bowls and so much more. Pet crate rentals have also taken off, and the crates often become purchase items after they have been rented.
Bow Wow Meow Pet Company is located on the east end of Seagrove Beach on Scenic 30A, next to Steamboat Bar and Grill. The shop is open daily. For more information, please call 850-534-0009 or visit www.bowwowmeowpetcompany.com. Join the conversation and follow Bow Wow Meow on Facebook for updates.
