Myx & Porter love The Woof!

We have ADORED this shop from the moment we moved to Takoma. Our cat, Myx and pup, Porter love it too! Porter knows exactly where BBW is and begs to be taken that route on our walks all the time. They have a huge variety of products and are always getting something new and useful in.  It feels great to support a local business and find so many products we love. Their new location is more spacious and always brimming with browsing happy dogs and owners. The staff is incredibly kind, patient and knowledgeable. A Takoma Park institution, to be certain.

Huck gets his food delivered!

We were frequent customers in Hyattsville and were very sad when that shop closed. We finally used the delivery service for the first time this week and could not recommend it more. I placed an online order yesterday, the food arrived today with a text alert about when to expect the driver, in a repurposed box to reduce waste, and with sample treats for our dog.

My only regret is that Huck did not get to greet his favorite BBW employee, Maya, in this food purchase process 

On Cat Foods & Litter

We love this store. They carry a great selection of healthy cat foods and healthy environmentally safe cat litter brands. They offer a wonderful choice of cat and dog collars, leashes and toys too. The products they sell (especially foods) are not the brands sold at larger national pet store chains.

Staff is friendly and knowledgeable and always happy to help. We are very grateful to live in the neighborhood and have the BBW minutes away. 

Raw Food & Frenchie's

Simply the best pet store in the DC area.  Pennye and Julie have created a store with a great community feel and superb products.  They make sure that who they are buying from is a good business with good intentions for pets, their owners and the environment.  This is very important to me.  

The selection of raw food for dogs is much greater at the Big Bad Woof than any other store I have been.  I own French Bulldogs and they need specialized treats without grains of any kind.  Not many places sell these products and the ones that do have a very limited selection.  Big Bad Woof has a large selection of whatever I need.

Tamara's New Adoption Package

Every member of their staff is helpful and really nice. They have a lot of organic options that you may not always find in the bigger stores. If you just adopted a pet this is the place to go- they provide you with an adoption congrats package that makes your new family members transition to the home just a bit easier.

Holistic Pet Stores & Vets

As a holistic veterinarian for 35 years, I rely strongly on holistically oriented pet stores and the success of the big bad woof shows that more and more people are recognizing that fresh food and no chemical treatments (flea, ticks, house, water, vaccines, etc) result in longer healthier lives for all their family members.

Delivery is easy and convenient

I have used big bad woof's online store with delivery twice.  Easy ordering process, fair prices, fair delivery fee, they text you when the driver is en route (you can even track the delivery), and he is super courteous and friendly. Great selection, convenient, reliable, local, and good value - highly recommend!

Delivery Service saves Busy Schedules

Taking advantage of the delivery during this busy time. Great option and the system works really well. Super easy to use. 

Thank you!!
