My fabulous Doberman, Elvis, loves to shop. One of his most favorite stores in Sarasota is right downtown just a few blocks from our real estate office. On the days he accompanies me to work he knows that a trip to WET NOSES will be the highlight of his day. We stroll the four blocks and as we near the shop he becomes excited knowing that a treat is in his future. This wonderful small business started out on St. Armand’s Circle and then made the move into downtown a little over a year ago. It is a welcome addition to a bustling downtown that is extremely dog-friendly. From gourmet baked treats to rhinestone studded collars, every kind of dog leash and accessory that you could imagine and warm friendly service, this is a success story about how personal service and attention to detail and customer needs can cause a company to soar. As we enter the wonderful owner calls out to Elvis and he immediately goes to her for his treat. He also finds a stuffed yet indestructible chew toy and proudly carries it back to the office in his mouth. Please go to their website http://wetnosessarasota.com/ for information not only about their store but also under the “Friends” tab you will find all the dog friendly hotels and restaurants in town. Elvis has left the Building!
