Colin and Lisa said: “We opened Gone Barking in Richmond because it is probably the most dog-friendly city in the country and the locals are welcoming too. It’s the kind of place where complete strangers come to say hello.”
“Many people and their dogs visit the town to see the historic castle and fascinating waterfalls, which are a great base for some of the best dog walks.
“And when you’re done walking through the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside, you’ll find that many of the cafes, pubs and restaurants where you can relax are also dog friendly.
“We wanted to contribute to these local dog-friendly businesses by welcoming the whole family to the city, and so a small dog-only shop was the inspiration for Gone Barking.”
They are opening just in time to take part in the ongoing Magic Tenner event.
For just £10 a gift box with a selection of items including dog shampoo, edible greeting card, dog chocolate, a ball toy and a dog bakery.
The campaign hopes to strengthen Richmond’s independent businesses and encourage people to try smaller businesses.
It runs until October 21st.
Chris Sands, founder of Totally Local, which organizes the event, said: “We continue to be overwhelmed by the response from independent businesses to our campaigns and reports of increased footfall and sales at a time when the cost of living crisis is hitting many people.
“The Magic Tenner event is a great way for businesses to support their communities by offering great deals and for the community to support the businesses that make our cities better places.”
