Shop Local: Doggie Want a Bone?

If you live in San Francisco and are one of the many lucky dog owners here, you simply must check out the Mission's newest, and most stylish, dog boutique, Hazel & Gertie's. Owner Jeannine Giordan left the crazy world of advertising and started Gooddogs dog walking service in 2002. Jeannine soon saw the need for an affordable dog boutique in the Mission district, put herself through business planning at the Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center (an excellent resource for those of you with big dreams looking to make them a reality), and worked hard to make her vision come true. Thus, the birth of Hazel & Gertie's, named for two of Jeannine's three adopted dogs (oh, and there's Biggie, too!).

Jeannine decorated the adorable Hazel & Gertie's herself, all with vintage, recycled pet paraphernalia and furniture she scoured from flea markets, craigslist and garage sale finds, which she hand-picked and collected with love over the past couple of years. It is so cute!



Hazel & Gertie's carries Smallbatch raw food, handmade locally with only organic ingredients, as well as all kinds of other specialty, healthy dog foods, toys, beds, collars and treats for your furry companions (and of course, cats, too!). There's also a big, blue claw foot tub all set up for self-serve dog bathing, and Jennine continues to offer her renowned, super friendly Gooddogs dog walking services. So stop by the shop and put your furry friends into the animal-loving, caring hands of Jeannine, and say hi to Hazel & Gertie, and Biggie, too!



Your co-hosts, Hazel, Biggie and Gertie.

This is SO CUTE! I'm going to have to check it out. The photos look great! I love that fact that they decorated with vintage and the names Hazel & Gertie are precious. I had two relatives with those names. Thanks for the post! Lynn

Is this near Johnny Rockets? If so, I went to this pet shop back in July 2001 during our honeymoon and remembering loving it. San Francisco is such a great city.

::Sigh::

You are so lucky to live there!

Okay, Gertie is a close match to our dog, Ozzie. Is she a catahoula mix, too?

Love those dogs! I'm possibly coming to SF at the end of Aug so I will be re-reading your entire blog for shops to visit!

Jeannine said...

The tags for Hazel, Gertie & Biggie came from fetchingtags.net

They rock. And last FOREVER!

Oh, Victoria, you have done another superb post! Jeannine is such a talented woman, and your profile shows off her new "baby" so well! Bravo to her, and to you! Now every dog owner has to get over there and buy something fabulous for the pooch who walks you! Good luck, Jeannine!

Knowing Jeannine as long as I have, this is surely a dream come true for the truest of dog lovers. I still have some of the pics we traded of the pups and pooches and looking at the store, its like an explosion of that love for our four legged friends. Great blog, great store, great job Jeannine. I am proud of you...
