The K9 Shop was founded by Robert Tucker and his wife, Anya, in their garage, and it has since grown into a passion project with the goal of providing raw food for local pets.
Customers swear by the health benefits of raw food, with dogs showing improvements in coat, behavior, and overall health.
The K9 Shop offers balanced meals, bones, fish, farm eggs, whole prey, and DIY raw chunks, with food also coming from local farms. The employees prioritize education for customers, emphasizing the dangers and real benefits of raw, natural food and supplements.

E. Northport is a franchise location owned and operated by Michael Charity, a long-time K9 Shop customer who became a friend of the Tuckers. Charity found the perfect opportunity to bring his passion closer to home, and the Tuckers knew he was the ideal owner. They believe that everything starts with what dogs eat and look forward to spreading their movement to a new location.
