- Location: multiple locations
Dog and Cats Best Friend. Started by an animal lover (and owner of a wire hair fox terrier named George) George makes their own brand of dog and cat toys, beds, collars, and food with an emphasis on modern style (and, I notice, a great sense of humor). You may have seen their stick logo around since their bay area shops have been featured in the design world for a while. The new Santa Monica location is choc full of everything our dear pets could ever hope for with a helpful staff to boot. It's refreshing to see accessories for cats getting the attention that canines have had for a while. George has jars and jars of catnip toys, a stylish 'scooper' for next to the toilet, modern collars, food bowls and something they refer to as 'kitty crack' (go to the website to see a demonstration). Bring your dog into the store to pick out his favorite bed, food, or just to get some fresh baked treats and a drink of water.
