About The Woof

We know you have chosen a small, independent pet supply store because you want only the very best. Whether you live with a companion or service animal, The Big Bad Woof understands your needs and is on hand to answer your questions, help you adopt, and even deliver your goods to you!

Located in the Takoma neighborhood of Washington, D.C., The Big Bad Woof is a retail store and community resource for companion animals and their guardians. The Woof provides access to organic, premium, and raw diets, and a wide range of holistic supplements for companion animals. We realize how important it is to pet guardians that they have essential pet supplies that are good for their animal’s health and well-being everywhere that they may go.

For the past 14+ years, The Woof has maintained a strong commitment to its community. Through healthy relationships with local farmers, as well as the various local rescue organizations, fundraising events, adoptions and, specialized clinics and pet supply and food drives, the Woof has offered everyone the opportunity to be a better pet owner.

Owners Julie Paez and Pennye Jones-Napier sum up their philosophy this way: “There should be a standard in being able to say that you can run a business well, give back to the community and make a profit.”

To that we say “Woof!”
