The pet shop George opened their fifth location recently at City Center Bishop Ranch in San Ramon. Check out their products here.

From their website:

With their fox terrier as both inspiration and focus group, and a couple of very cool designers as co-conspirators, Bobby and Lyndon went to work. (Oh, and let’s not forget the cadre of bossy, feline-fancying friends who acted as consultants). Pretty soon, there was an entire line of eye-catching accessories and baked-from-scratch treats for all manner of quadrupeds and natty gear for those who walk upright.
