Shopping at an independent pet store is a different experience than going to a big box chain.

Local stores often connect with their community on a personal level, carry awesome specialty products, and understand the amazing, unique relationship between pets and people.

Here are a few reasons to stop by a local pet shop next time you need to stock up on treats, toys, and more for your furry buddies.

We Treat Pets Like Family

Pets and their owners have an amazing, special love for each other. Your pet brings so much happiness and warmth into your life, and you want to give them the world. As pet parents ourselves, we understand that your pet is a member of your family. That’s why we hand-select all our products with the same care we’ve always had towards our own pets.

The result is higher quality products for our customers. The majority of what we carry is made in the United States. Whether it’s fun new toys for your cat or a cozy dog bed, we carefully choose only well-crafted, durable items that are fun, comfortable, and healthy for pets. In fact, all our food and treats are certified organic and made in the US with human grade ingredients.

A More Diverse Selection

Many people worry that the product offering won’t be as good at independent pet stores, but you might actually find the opposite! We offer hundreds of items from dozens of brands that we know offer superior products with the best quality materials and ingredients.

You’re also more likely to see hard-to-find, niche products at a local pet store, including those fun specialty items you didn’t even know you needed, like:

King Duke's bulk organic pet treats in Beaverton, Oregon

Plus, local stores are often more flexible when it comes to their product selection. We always want to improve our offering, so if there’s something you want that we don’t have, let us know!

 

Better Customer Service

Smaller, mom-and-pop pet stores often have incredible customer service. As a local pet shop in Beaverton, we love to help the people and animals in our community and surrounding areas. We want to help you care for your pet like it’s our own, and we do all we can to offer the best possible customer service. 


Plus, that means you get more attention and better answers to all your questions about products, pets, and more. Are you a new pet parent with questions about how to welcome and care for your new furry family member? We’re here to help with that too!

  • Employ a knowledgeable staff who are always ready to offer advice and product knowledge
  • Put out a regular newsletter to help you stay up to date
  • Keep our inventory adaptable and stay up with our customers’ needs

Let us help you spoil your pet!

Whether you’re a seasoned pet owner, or you’re about to welcome a furry companion into your home for the first time, we’d love to help you find all the premium products you’re looking for.

The Dog Star is a popular name for Sirius, which is both the brightest star in the sky and one of the stars in the constellation of Canis Major, or Big Dog*. But how dd it come to be known as such? And what do the animals of the night sky teach us about the millions of humans who have gazed upon them before us? All this and more as we head AD ASTRA!

As a rule, we are National Day enthusiasts regardless of the occasion. But every once in a while a National Day comes about that fills us with the joy and enthusiasm of 100 puppies which is an apt metaphor since that day is in fact today: National Puppy Day! As you can imagine, the level of excitement at KDHQ is turned up to 11, and accordingly we’ve been gathering not only a selection of puppy merch at 10% off this weekend, March 23rd & 24th, with code PUPPYLOVE24, but also some super fun puppy facts that prove that alongside National Kitten Day (July 10th, mark your calendars!), this is the best day of all the days.

There are various means by which eras are defined: the invention of the wheel, the start of the Renaissance, and above all, Taylor Swift albums, tours - so much so the current one is literally named Eras - and romantic partners. Basically, enough things change enough and that means we're in a new phase. Having said that, we have been thinking recently of a contrast: animals and pets are consistently dominant in pop culture - no changes please and thank you - and every single era celebrates and records them. In our current human-centric age, this seems at first, ahem, glance odd, but as we have previously noted, there are 6.5 BILLION cat pictures on the internet which is only slight fewer than the number of selfies on Kylie Jenner's phone (7 billion, allegedly). In our view, this is as it should be, but it set us thinking: why? Why are animals more enduring across cultures, eras, continents, and content than anything else? Step this way...
