Bob and Starla Pellegrino decided to open Pooch N Paws to fulfill both of their lifelong ambitions of starting their own business. It was only recently that they discovered that a pet boutique and bakery was the perfect combination to fulfill not only their business desire but also their personal passion.
Bob and Starla, along with their 5 kids (Justin, Emily, Jillian, Kirsten and D.J.) and their 7 pets (Bailey, Zoey, Missy, Riley, Tigger, Pepper, and Mandy) are all scattered around the Atlanta area.
While Bob is originally from Boston and Starla is from Texas, Atlanta is now where they call home.
We want to create a fun place for pets and their owners to shop that is personalized and unique while supporting and giving back to the community.
This is a picture of Starla and Bob the night before the opening of Pooch N Paws in September 2010. They decided to leave at 2:30 am when they came to the realization that they could be there all night long trying to make sure every detail is just right for the next morning.
With the recent opening of our new larger location, we have added an enhanced selection of holistic dog/cat food, treats, accessories as well as an entire new offering of services. These services include a self dog wash area, full service grooming and a "Park your Pooch" temporary pet sitting service while you shop and dine in the center. We hope with our new location, you make us your one stop pet shop!
