New store offers unique items for dogs and their owners – Eagle News Online
CAZENOVIA – On December 2, Tammy Tanner opened Liberty’s Dog House in Cazenovia’s former bedroom office at 59 Albany St.
Focused on products made in the United States in small batches, the new store offers specialty items and treats for pets, as well as household items, jewelry and clothing for their owners.
The shop, named after Tanner’s Labradoodle, Liberty, welcomes dogs inside to sample a range of healthy and creative treats.
“I thought if I could go to [food and beverage] tastings, why can’t my dog? Tanner said.
Snack offerings include Calvin’s Craft sustainable dog treats, which are made from brewer’s spent grain and packaged in beer cans, and Bowser Beer, a USDA non-alcoholic, human-grade meat-based beer from vitamin B from malted barley for shiny coats. , and added glucosamine for joint health.
Other unique products include dog jackets, ‘Vuitton chewable’ toys, and pet deodorant candles with wax that also doubles as a protective paw balm.
In addition to a wide range of retail items, the newly configured space features a Liberty the Labradoodle-inspired mural on one wall and a set of wings – positioned for dog photo ops – on a other.
Both paintings were done by local artist Jacqueline Colello, of Colello Creations, who is responsible for works of art throughout the region, including the three-story mural outside the Cucina de Francesca in the Little Italy of Syracuse.
Tanner, who grew up on a dairy farm in Massena, NY, previously worked at the Center for Policy Research at the Maxwell School of Citizenship & Public Affairs at Syracuse University.
She moved to Cazenovia from Clay, NY, last spring.
His son, Jake, just opened Unplugged Gaming in Manlius, and his daughter, Miranda, recently moved to Denver after graduating from SUNY ESF.
Shortly after arriving in town, Tanner was introduced to Travis Barr, part owner of H. Gray Supply Co. (53 Albany St.), Cazenovia’s modern general store and outfitter.
She quickly began working with Barr, offering assistance with everything from the inaugural Cazenovia Pride Fest and other events to decorating her store windows.
After learning that the space adjacent to H. Gray Supply Co. had opened up, Tanner decided to open his own store.
“I had a vision [for a combination pet and home goods store], “she said.” I just wanted to bring in some unique products and, for the most part, all-natural products that are good for dogs and fun too. “
She added that she aimed to provide the community with separate offerings of the bulk products available at Petco or PetSmart or on Amazon.
