Favorite Pet Supply Stores in Milwaukee

Milwaukee is so dog friendly, and we love that about this city!  One of my favorite things is how many specialty pet stores there are in the city!  In this blog, we are going to share with you our top 5 pet stores and tell you why we love them!


Bentleys is a national chain, but they are locally owned.  The staff are knowledgable, kind and always ready to offer advice!  You can find Bentleys Pet Stuff all over, but our favorites are the locations in Bay View, Shorewood and Oak Creek!

Bentleys has a variety of items for your pets, but they specialize in healthy, nutritious and good for your pet food and treats.  Their options for enrichment items is top notch.  In addition, Bentleys offers events for pets and their families through their Pawscapes program!



Do you have questions about your dogs nutrition? Want to know what to feed them?  Bark N Scratch Outpost has you covered!  The owners have been passionate about pet nutrition for years- they even send the staff to trainings to stay informed of the latest science on canine and feline nutrition!

The staff are extremely friendly, and always ready to help out!  They are so well informed that we often refer clients to them when their pets are not able to tolerate many foods well.  In addition to plenty of food options from Raw foods, to fresh, frozen or kibble, they have a wide variety of treats and toys as well!

Bark N Scratch gives back to the community as well!  The owners are generous in giving back and are always ready to help out!  Stop in for a real treat!


Skilos is a local and family owned store with two locations.  The staff are knowledgeable and eager to stay on top of the science in training, nutrition and enrichment.

The selection of enrichment toys is impressive. They even have a great selection of cat enrichment items, an area we personally feel can be overlooked sometimes.  Zack, Jared and Judy are incredibly sweet and have hired a wonderful team to continue their vision.

In addition, Skilos is dedicated to giving back to the community through their several donations and events each year.


Auntie Jennies Barkery, in Greendale, is a local store that genuinely cares about local small businesses and giving back.  Jennie makes her own treats, which are great quality and a hit with dogs, but she also carries items from other small businesses.

Auntie Jennies donates a portion of their proceeds to a local rescue every month and she does a lot of work with small businesses and rescues to put on events to support dogs in need!

The shop is well stocked and has nice wide isles, so dogs who are more nervous in closed spaces can feel comfortable!  She is also one of the organizers of Pet Palooza each year!


The Feed Bag Pet Supply, located in Mequon, rounds out our list!  The store not only has a huge selection of pet items, but it also has a pool for your dog to go swimming!  Although the pool is closed June 1- July8 for renovations, this is a wonderful addition!

The Feed Bag staff are knowledgable and always ready to help.  Their selection of items for all pets, including dogs, cats, birds and fish is extensive!  In addition, there are plenty of events for pet owners to participate in at the store!
