In addition to their quality crafted merchandise with the health of your pup and Mother Nature in mind, many of the items at All the Dogs are also locally made. Among their vast selection of treats, Becky and Cori carry Bruno Bits, which are gourmet dog treats made by chef/owner Donna Wetterlund of Chadds Ford with no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives using, human-quality ingredients. Another big seller is Luna Blu Biscuits from Aston in Delaware County, which are peanut butter treats hand-stamped with “I Woof U." The shop offers Hemp Martingale Collars by Anne Marie Unger of Hand and Paw Studio, as well as Mika and Sammy Pet Treats and Bones, businesses whose products are sourced and made in Berks County and Philadelphia, respectively.

[All the Dogs] carry a line of handcrafted bandannas made by ... Judi Cummings of West Chester

Becky and Cori also carry a line of handcrafted bandannas made by Cori’s mom, Judi Cummings of West Chester. Judi purchases all materials from local fabric shops, and her styles vary from fun prints like llamas and flamingos to Philadelphia sports teams — she’s currently sewing a batch of Gritty and Eagles’ bandannas. The walls of All the Dogs are consistently adorned with doggy-inspired, framed artwork by local artists Lou Lou Clayton, Kris Berlin, and Michelle Hart Kania. The shop also carries printed note cards designed and painted by West Chester resident Heather Carey. Of course, your dog is always welcome inside, and free sample treats are available to all of your bewhiskered buddies, so stop in and peruse with your pooch.
