About Us

Rocky Mountain Tails Pet Shop & Spa opened its doors in December 2010 as Calgary’s finest independent pet supply and grooming destination. We aim to satisfy all the needs of your barking, purring, hopping and squeaking pals with first rate customer service and advice, coupled with quality, healthy products.

At Rocky Mountain Tails, we don’t just rely on the ingredients listed on the bag to make our decisions on the brands we carry. We look at other factors as well such as company ownership, where the food is actually made and recall history. We consider ourselves an ethical business, and like to promote those businesses who we feel are also operating in an ethical and responsible manner. When it comes to pet food and treats, we need to trust that the products we sell are safe and nutritious. Consequently, all of our foods are wheat, corn and soy free and contain none of those nasty additives and preservatives like BHA, BHT and ethoxyquin. We have proudly chosen to carry healthy dry and canned dog and cat food from Acana, Orijen, go!, now fresh, Fromm, Holistic Blend, Ziwi Peak, Honest Kitchen, K9 Natural, Merrick, Petkind, Wellness, Almo Nature and Weruva.

We also have an excellent selection of tasty treats and chews that we rotate frequently for variety. Regular staples include Orijen, Northern Biscuit, Fruitables, Benny Bully, Whimzees, Plato, Honest Kitchen, Caru, Cloud Star, Aron, Open Range, This & That and Himalayan Chew.

We also have a nice selection of both plush and rubber toys for cats and dogs. These tend to change quite frequently but include Kong, Chuck-It, JW, Outward Hound, Charming Pet, GoDog, Bionic, Multipet and Tuffy.

For the small animals in your fur-family, we are an Oxbow Animal Health preferred retailer, stocking a variety of their hays, pellets and treats. The preferred retailer program allows us to offer free frequent feeder bags of pellets and most hays. We also keep pellets from Martin’s and a very addictive hay from Versele Laga (you have been warned!). And speaking of addictive, we also carry treats from Ottawa’s own the Blue-Eyed Bunny. If you haven’t tried the delicious, natural goodness of the Canadian grown willow treats, apple sticks and bunny greens, then your little critter is missing out on a true treat (we even keep one of their willow wreaths in our own bunny emergency kit). We also keep other various daily necessities and treats.

We like to support local small businesses, so we are proud to offer products from manufacturers like Calgary’s own Waggers and Living the Dream. British Columbia brings us bull sticks and chews from Open Range, and treats from Northern Biscuit.

One of the causes we feel the most strongly about is animal rescue. To that end, we encourage you to check out your local shelters and rescues when you find yourself searching for an animal companion. We have listed links to several under “Rescues” on this site. We also accept donations of items for local rescues. In addition, we foster for Against All Odds Rabbit Rescue, and often have an adoptable bunny in the store.

We look forward to serving you in the near future.

Craig & Sandy
