Doghouse is coming to Clifton Village, Bristol...

Not long now...

If you’ve been following our stories on social media, you may have guessed the news already… We couldn't be more excited (and terrified in equal measure) to announce that we're opening a shiny new Doghouse in Clifton Village in Bristol at the end of summer! 

This has been months and months of planning behind the scenes and it’s been a tough secret to keep but finally we can shout from the rooftops; We are bringing our own special brand of pet shoppery to a second Doghouse! We hope you're just as excited as us!

Our community is undoubtedly the best thing about Doghouse, so the fact that our community is doubling in size is just so, so exciting. We have made, loved and lost the best of friends through this shop. We’ve created friendships (and relationships) that will last a lifetime and for that I am so grateful. We can't wait to meet more dogs and more dog lovers and to share the wonderfully crazy adventure of owning a dog with you all. 

We’ll be bringing our unique business model to Bristol, complete with a grooming salon (and DIY dog wash!), a café with outside seating plus a fully stocked pet shop with everything from luxury dog wear to tasty natural treats.

It’s been so hard to keep our lips sealed about this one, there’s been a few times it’s nearly slipped out in front of customers but we’re pretty proud of ourselves for keeping shtum! However, the shop fit is underway, we will be recruiting shortly and of course there will be lots of plans to open with a tail-wagging-hurrah! 

A note from Ruth:

When I opened Doghouse back in 2017, I always thought I’d love to open more stores in the future. One of our favourite conversations over the counter is when customers travel to see us and tell us that they’d love one in their hometown of Bristol, London, Manchester, Cornwall etc… the list goes on! Well now the time has come, and this time I’m surrounded by a brilliant team and a brilliant community, we are both excited and terrified but this time we know it works. It has been the most challenging of years but when the opportunity arose we dug deep because moments like this don’t come along too often. Clifton has been on our list as a top spot for a Doghouse so we just knew we had to make it happen. 

With lots of terrifying statistics swirling around about the decline of the high street, it’s a scary time to expand, but if this last year has taught us anything… It is that our community is stronger than ever and that you all love dogs just as much as we do!

Bristol… Here we come!!
