One thing we love even more than hanging out with our pets? Spoiling them. 

There are a bunch of generic pet stores to shop for toys, accessories, and food, but a few of our favorite, locally owned shops have kicked it up a notch. From selections of gourmet, baked treats to handmade toys, these five Phoenix spots keep us (and our pets) very happy, indeed. 

5. Bone Appetit Bakery
This Ahwatukee boutique and bakery is serious about pet treats. Its creations come in a variety of sizes and flavors -- peanut butter, pumpkin, s'more and beef to name a few -- and are perfect for the dogs and cats who eat better than their owners. 

4. Mackie's Parlour
Mackie's is one of our favorite places to splurge locally made leashes, carriers, harnesses and costumes (we know). The Scottsdale shop is prime for traveling pet essentials and hosts holiday events and pet-friendly parties. 

3. Moderncat Studios
Cats can be picky, and not a lot of stores carry a selection of cat goods beyond the typical nip and scratch post. Not true for Phoenix-based, online store Moderncat, which carries undeniably cool cat goods. Playthings, accessories, and beds all have a sleek, modernist aesthetic. 

2. Petique
When we want to shop for poop bags and pup accessories while supporting a good cause, we head to Petique. Located at the Biltmore Fashion Park, the boutique combines upscale goods and on-site pet adoptions, with proceeds benefiting the Arizona Humane Society.

1. Wag N' Wash
This Phoenix shop has everything our pets need to be happy and healthy, from a do-it-yourself dog wash stations to premium food and treats (and "pet-ible" cakes).
