My Pet Garden does extremely well in balancing the practical with the whimsical.
Here, you’ll find safe, reliable essentials for your pet’s diet and grooming alongside the more indulgent stuff: rewarding toys and pet fashions — argyle-print tanks! — and even Bowser dog beer.
The pet shop in East Pasadena was created by animal expert Joel Tatum, a former zookeeper and producer of the DIY Network’s Pet Care television series.
The shop fits just about everything you need into a fairly small space, without feeling stuffed to the brim or disorganized.
And this garden also “grows” affordable, full-service groomers and a hospitable staff, making it an all-bases-covered shop — leaving you and your pet plenty of time to stop and smell the roses.
