We’ve been hearing a lot lately about how awesome Blue Collar on Echo Park Avenue is. We don’t frequent the store because, well, we are cat people (sorry), but besides being a great, locally owned business, they are a fabulous component for a big dog community. So here are a couple of things that you may have not known about Blue Collar, and why you should check it out:
Reason #1: Custom ID tags
Deborah of La Guera Tamalera raves about all the shop in general, but really loves that they offer inexpensive custom dog ID tags. For only $3 they will hammer out the ID tag and attach it to your pet’s collar, securing your dog’s return to you if they ever get loose!
Reason #2: Chip scan!
If you find some lost little animal that has no collar and needs to return home, just take it to Blue Collar for a free chip scan. We’ve done this before with found pets, but have gone all the way to the animal shelter on Lacy Street. This is a great local way to check for that chip!
Reason #3: They want to help!
Blue Collar wants to help! They’ve had programs in the past where they collect donations of dog food and supplies for families facing hard times in this economy, and even providing homeless pet owners with help. In addition to their regular obedience classes at a reasonable (and competitive) rate, they are also willing to help if you or someone you know has a dog with serious behavior problems but can’t afford the courses. For either of these programs, just go in and ask!
