CNY Woman opens a store to better accommodate dogs

A Central New York woman recently opened a new dog shop in Cazenovia that gives dogs the opportunity to browse, try what they like, and find something unique. The store was started by Tammy Tanner who owns a 3 year old Labradoodle named Liberty.

“Liberty and I have been inseparable,” Tanner said.

Tanner opened this store in December to honor his favorite pup. Liberty can’t talk, so Tammy deals with incoming customers.

However, this is not your typical dog supply store. At Liberty’s Dog House, dogs are free to roam and go to the products they love.

“They are so much better off leash than on leash, when the dogs and their owners are around. It’s nice to see them come in and walk around,” Tanner said.

Dogs and their owners can find everything from dog toys to healthy treats.

“I just think it’s very unique that owners and dogs can walk into a store, but it’s for both,” said Liberty’s Dog House customer Letty Butterworth.

And just like us humans love a good happy hour once in a while, a dog deserves a good jerky or cold cigar too.

“It’s Bowser beer, and it’s actually bone broth. Just packed in a beer bottle,” Tanner said.

The idea is to allow dogs to have fun while owners can find American-made pet products that they won’t find in many other places. It can be something to wear or a toy.

“Chewy Vuitton and Jimmy Chew. With Humpy Trumpty, Joe Biden and Donald Trump. So your dog can come in and choose which one you’d like to see ripped,” Tanner said.

It’s all fun of course – and the aim of this dog-focused store is to become a place where owners can also relax with local beer.

“You know, like Madison County, if I could haul some of their booze. And for us to have a tasting, as well as the dogs having their tasting,” Tanner said.

So whether you’re a dog or a canine companion, this can be a stop worth checking out and Liberty will be glad you did. Liberty’s Dog House is located at 59 Albany Street in Cazenovia. The store is open from Tuesday to Sunday.
