With some recurring roof issues giving Down Home Dog (6021 Cunard Street) and all of its furry friends some trouble at its current location, the north end groomer, self-serve dog wash and canine-centric retailer is moving out. While it sounds like a pretty crappy reason to hit the road, it’s great news for pet owners who dig the Gottingen area as Down Home’s taking over 2310 Gottingen Street, former home of the recently closed Home Grown Organic Foods.

“I grew up on Creighton Street, so for me it's moving into the neighbourhood I spent most of my childhood in,” says co-owner and groomer Jennifer Sinclair of the new digs for her shop. “ We are happy to be joining the great mix of small businesses on Gottingen Street.” The Cunard Street location will close end of day on April 12, Sinclair aims to re-opened for Monday, April 16 (with grand opening celebrations to come post-snowbank season).
