Trip of a Lifetime

For every purchase made between January 1
and December 31, 2017 you will receive one
chance in a drawing for an all expense paid
trip for two to the Westminster Kennel Club
Dog Show at Madison Square Garden in
New York in February, 2018. The trip will
include round trip airfare for two, hotel
accommodations for three nights and
tickets to the Dog Show.

Welcome to Bone-a-fide Dog!

Aside from providing unconditional love, we believe there is nothing more important we can do for our loyal companions than to make sure they eat the healthiest food, play with the safest toys, and use the most environmentally friendly accessories available. That is why every product we carry has your dog’s and our environment’s well-being in mind. As a locally owned and operated store, we believe in down home, friendly service. We are excited to operate Bone-a-fide Dog! at the Canyon Plaza Shopping Center, where we can serve our beloved Southeast Albuquerque community. Grab a leash and bring your dog in for a visit. We’d love to meet you and welcome you into our Bone-a-fide Dog! family.

Our Story

Our Waggly Tale

We have been dog lovers all of our lives, and during our 26 years of marriage, it’s amazing how much we’ve learned about each other just by the way we’ve talked about and interacted with our own dogs. We have a deep respect for each other that comes from our mutual love of not only our special pets, but of all dogs in general.

Early on, we had the privilege to work in business together for many years, and were inspired by each other’s creativity and passion. Life took us on different journeys in our working lives for the past several years, however. Although we endured long hours of separate work schedules, one thing never changed; we always enjoyed interacting with and meeting people - especially when they had a dog!

There were so many special times over the years when we would come home with detailed dog stories to share with each other and it always ended up with,” I wish you could have seen him/her.” We came to realize that those moments when we could bond with a dog and its owner were oftentimes the best part of our day, and we decided to create Bone-a-fide Dog! to make those special moments a permanent part of our everyday lives. Now we’re back working together full time in a store that we built out of a dream to help bring out the very best in what dogs offer to all of us. Please stop in and visit us – we guarantee it would make our day!

Our Mission

Dogs do not have the ability to make decisions for themselves and are therefore completely dependent on owners for their care. Making good choices can be overwhelming in today’s over-saturated dog supply market. As such, we strive to help dog owners make the best selections to responsibly meet their dogs’ nutritional needs. At Bone-a-fide Dog! we are here to help you by offering only healthy, organic and natural food, and environmentally friendly toys and accessories. We are lifelong dog lovers who are passionate about the health, safety and happiness of our best friends and yours.

A Round of aPaws

Welcome to A Round of aPaws, where special dogs get special recognition.

Did your dog go on a diet and lose some unwanted pounds? We want to
hear about it. Did your dog visit a retirement home, welcome a new litter
or enter a dog show? We want to share in the excitement. No achievement
is too small to earn a place in our Round of aPaws section. We would love
to share your dog’s tale, and of course a photo too. Just send a paragraph
or two to our Contact Page.

We’ll get it up on our website for the world to see!
