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!
