Shops and Salons with Something to Bark About

We know you love your pets. And so do we! Bring your best friend along for the ride on your next trip to Winston-Salem and hit these top places around town to shop for and pamper your pet.


Wake up and kick start your morning in the Downtown Arts District discovering local art pieces in the dozens of galleries along the sidewalk. On hot summer days, many shops keep a doggy bowl of cold water at their doors. Hang out with other dog owners and dogs at Artivity on the Green, the city’s first art park located in the heart of downtown.

Situated in the heart of the Downtown Arts District is Bark Avenue Boutique + Barkery. Bark Avenue has something for every kind of four-legged pet whether it be your furry feline looking for hand-baked treats or your beer-loving dog – yes, that’s beer FOR YOUR DOG. Rocky might also want to shop for Winston-Salem souvenirs to show all his pals when you return home.

After a long day of shopping, Fur Pet Salon in downtown Winston-Salem invites pets in for a personal spa treatment. The locally owned boutique salon offers pampering services including their signature “pawdicures,” facials, and mud baths. While your pet is getting primped and prepped for your night now, treat yourself to a cappuccino at West End Coffeehouse next door.

Another wonderful pet salon and spa service is offered at Ruff Housing, with two convenient locations in Winston-Salem. Putting your pet pal’s needs first, Ruff Housing utilizes aromatherapy in each of their grooming rooms to help create a relaxing and calming atmosphere, in addition to using high-quality, organic, and all-natural products to offer a soothing, tranquil grooming experience for your dog. Schedule a full body salt scrub, ear massage, or aromatherapy body wrap for your pup during your next visit to Winston-Salem!
