about us

The "tail" of barking babies begins in Japan. While living abroad in Tokyo, the beautiful, unique, and utterly fashion-forward apparel and accessories available to fido fashionistas caught the eye of Nancy Jelenic and her Jack Russell Terrier, Quintin.

Moving back to Vancouver in 2004, it all started with: "where did you get that jacket for your dog?" After being asked numerous times, Nancy realized that there was a market for high-end dog fashion & accessories in Vancouver so she & her trusty JRT Quintin opened barking babies dog boutique, in tribute to the families who treated their dogs like children and wanted only the best for them!

In 2006, barking babies expanded from a 300 sq. ft. store to 1000 sq. ft. to provide the full dog lifestyle experience. The store has expanded their luxury product lines to also include high quality foods, treats and services. Now barking babies also offers: dog grooming, puppy training, anesthesia free teeth cleaning and a no appointment necessary nail trim clinic!
