Lake Dog and Their People
Shari traded the corporate world to play with dogs! She was an executive recruiter when the pandemic forced her brand to close. Although, timing was right for Shari and everything fell into place when she opened her store, Lake Dog and Their People, in downtown Eufaula, Oklahoma over a year and a half ago. They are a Dog Boutique, Self-dog wash, Doggie Day care and Grooming.
What makes ‘Lake Dog and Their People’ unique?
Only about 1000 ft from water
“Lake Dog and Their People is in a lake Community- Eufaula, Oklahoma. It is the only city in Oklahoma located on a lake. We are about halfway between Tulsa, Oklahoma and Dallas, Texas. We have visitors, weekenders and locals that shop downtown. So, we offer unique items such as Dog life jackets, dog rafts, dog ice cream to the necessities. Such as food, treats and supplements. We not only offer items for your fur baby, but we have items for their people too! We have been referred to as a destination store!”
Convenience and service
“If you are visiting the lake or the lake is your home- you do not have to drive to the big city or go online to get healthy food and treats for your dog. We carry quality products. With our self-wash baths, you don’t have to take a stinky dog home. And if you are looking for something to do, you fur baby can come in the store and shop with you!”
New to an already amazing community
“It is so exciting to see options in our community that many have not had convenient access to in the past. When a customer comes in and says, “I did not know my dog would be noticeably healthier just by changing the food they eat!” Or… “My dog sheds less or is not itching anymore!” In addition, I have customers from Dallas, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and other larger cities that love the convenience of great items for their lake house, VRBO, Airbnb etc. that they did not have to pack and bring with them! We bring together the love of the lake and dogs.”
What is your favorite Northwest Naturals product?
“I have two favorites- the Raw Reward treats, Green Lipped Mussels – My big dog loves them, and they are a great natural way to support her joints and cartilage! My other favorite is the Freeze-Dried Raw diet for dogs – it’s convenient and easy to take with us and there is not a flavor she does not like! I can count on it for a meal or a treat!”
With living off a lake, convenience is a huge factor to think about especially if you have fur babies with you. Our Freeze-Dried Treats and Diets are perfect for anyone visiting the lake with their pups since they are light weight and easy to travel with, there’s no need to thaw the product, and easy to break apart for on the go.
Why is it important to shop local?
“It is important to shop local to invest in our community; it makes for a great place to visit and live! Our tourism is crucial for the future growth and development of our town. We have more people that visit the town than live here, so we appreciate the tax dollars that support the services and public safety we all benefit from and enjoy.”
