This colorful and inviting boutique is all about pampering your pooch with frivolous—yet irresistible—offerings such as a scrumptious biscuit bar featuring all-natural ginger and blueberry-flavored treats ($13 per pound), fancifully illustrated children’s books with tales of canine antics ($10) and evil-eye charms for collars ($6–$10). But what Zoomies is best known for is its sleek house line of apparel. “We make the clothes for the dog, not the human,” says co-owner Angelique Graux. Translation: If you want to humiliate your pup with a frilly tutu, you’ll have to pick one up elsewhere. Along with her partner Susan Bartholomew, a former VP at Dior, the two create chic, serviceable gear; their signature line of reflective, insulated rain jackets and winter coats ($50–$70) are made with a water-repellent nylon shell that keeps dogs of all sizes cool and dry. Zoomies also makes leashes and collars made of leather or nylon ($18–$45), lush fleece blankets ($50) and a small selection of cotton kitty collars ($16) for feline friends.
