Doggie By Nature is giving canines in Wilmington something to wag their tail about with a shop full of fun and tasty sundries!  Offering a huge selection of treats, dog accessories, and wonderful home and office décor for those humans who hold a soft spot in their heart for their furry four legged friends, “Doggie By Nature is a pet boutique driven by the need to create a healthy, safe and fun life for our furry friends.”  They strive to bring their consumers the very best in supplies and delights for the pets they love.  Located amongst the wonderful shops in the Cotton Exchange in downtown Wilmington the Doggie By Nature pet boutique is a must stop for anyone who has a dog in their family! 
“Doggie By Nature is a pet boutique driven by the need to create a healthy, safe and fun life for our furry friends. We strive to educate pet owners and to strengthen the bond and balance between humans and canines/felines.  We bake organic, tasty treats, and focus our merchandise on green, made in the USA standards whenever possible.  The owners, Stacy and Tim Corcoran, were inspired by their two rescue dogs Ava and Stella, also lovingly known in their household as Lady Bug (Ava) and Baked Bean (Stella).  Ava, a Black Lab/Shepherd mix, came to them with a severe case of demodex mange amongst many other ailments.  After roughly a year of trips to the vet, Ava made a full recovery and has since dedicated her life to ensuring the safety of her adoptive family.  She’s an independent lady that also comes packed with a sassy personality.  “Bug” is such a special girl, and has taught them much about the need to create a balanced, loving environment for your pets. 
The final straw of inspiration for Doggie By Nature came when Stella was adopted into their lives.  Stella is a 55 pound white and black spotted Pit Bull, who is just as tall as she is wide.  Those who know Stella are inspired by her recovery from a very troubled beginning. It took time for Stella to get past her fear of humans, but she has happily embraced her family and has gone so far as to become the official greeter of Doggie By Nature.  Customers come by just to see Stella and it’s easy to understand why.”
Doggie By Nature offers a massive assortment of delicious treats all previously “approved by our very own fury taste testers.”  Their locally produced treat selections are 100% great for your dog and the peace of mind that comes with knowing where the treats come from is invaluable.
 “All of our treats are made in-house by us, or locally by our trusted dog bakery affiliates.  By combining taste with all-natural and organic ingredients, we have created a variety of treats that will keep your pup begging for more!”
