Top Treats For Top Dogs In Lovely Leslieville

Animal House, City Living, Leslieville/Riverside

It’s no secret that your dog’s favourite activity is pretty much anything that involves you! My favourite activity with my four-pawed pal? Anything that keeps him happy and healthy!



While the raw diet has never appealed to me personally – a scoop of double chocolate ice cream is essential to my well-being, thank you very much – it makes a lot of sense for dogs and cats. After all, if free to survive on their own abilities, raw food is what they’d be eating, right? And given cooking and processing can reduce the nutritional value of food, raw food ensures your pet is getting the maximum health benefits.



The next time you’re walking your pup through Leslieville, I encourage you to visit  The Bone House (“Committed to the Health and Happiness of Your Pet”). Amongst other things, the shop sells organic and raw pet food – prepared using locally-sourced ingredients – and offers convenient delivery service within Toronto. Healthy and convenient? Being an always-on-the-go realtor, this definitely caught my attention!

(The original version of this blog also featured a second fantastic shop in the area – Barkside Bistro – which sadly shuttered both its locations in 2022 after suffering through long COVID-19 lockdowns. We’ll miss you!)



The Bone House, located at Queen Street East just west of Carlaw Avenue, is a self-proclaimed ‘health store’ for dogs. Offering a thoughtful selection of organic, human-grade food – as well as supplements and treats – this Leslieville pet store is another great place to visit if you’re considering switching your pet’s diet to one that’s raw. With food available in a variety of sizes and serving styles, ranging from frozen to pellets or in bulk, this purveyor also carries raw, dehydrated food for dogs and cats by Smack Pet Food. This animal-loving family business, originally from Winnipeg, hits the mark with their nutritious, convenient raw dehydrated food for pets.



If your pet isn’t ready to take the leap into raw food, The Bone House is a perfect place to purchase other earth-friendly dog products and treats. I love the all-natural and biodegradable shampoos and cleaners, as well as the line of tonics which help ease anxiety, relieve joint pain, or boost energy.

Many dogs are brave most of the time, but, say, during a thunderstorm…. not so much! Luckily the Bone House has an all-natural calming spray made of a blend of Jasmine, Chamomile, Valerian Root and Frankincense, recommended by a very helpful and knowledgeable Bone House staff member. Bring it on storms!

But in all seriousness, these are human-grade products that make you think twice about what you were buying before!



This establishment has serious heart; the staff understands the immensity of what our pets mean to us and will treat you and yours like you’re one of the family!
