Recently we heard about a pet store named Pawsitively Love opening on the Upper West Side, and it got us thinking about pet store names in a city like this. There are only so many generic ways to arrange the words "NYC," "Pet," and "Store," but we found ten shops that have tried to be a little more creative.
1.) Pawsitively Love
2.) DoggyStyle NYC
3.) Super Doggy Wonder Kitty
4.) Canine Country Club
5.) Beowoof Provisions for Pets
7.) The Jumping Bulldog
8.) Canis Minor
9.) Raising Rover and Baby
10.) Max Pawfection
