A Dog Shop
That Thinks Differently
Why hello there. We're so glad you want to shop local at Pause!
Our curated boxes are now available for both
pickup and shipping!
To better serve you for the near future, Pause is going mobile! You can place orders online or via phone.
What does this mean for you? We are maintaining a full inventory and will offer convenient & flexible pickup options throughout the villages of Rhinebeck & Red Hook. Are you going out for groceries or coffee or to pick up a prescription? Does your dog have a grooming or vet appointment? Making plans for eating out or shopping locally? We will meet you in the village with your Pause order!
We are striving to meet the highest standards of convenience, so we ask that whenever possible you place your order 24 hours in advance. This will allow us to schedule each day's pickups in a way that can best accommodate as many customer schedules as possible.
Do you have questions about a product or need to schedule a mobile shopping experience? Do you need a harness fitting or to peruse all the dog beds in person? Don't hesitate to ask!
Sure, shopping online can be fun and easy (except when the Internet goes down), but there is also something really reassuring about perusing products in good old fashioned brick and mortar.
We're not your typical dog boutique. Sniff us out! Pause specializes in providing unique, high-quality, products for discerning dog lovers and their dogs. We offer stylish accessories, natural foods and treats, and a holistic approach to dog care. When you come visit, you will find friendly and helpful staff, personalized service and an array of:
∙ Carefully selected treats and chews that are naturally preserved and free of corn, wheat, soy, grains and other fillers
∙ American made, eco-friendly and one-of-a-kind products, many of which give back in some way
∙ Collars, harnesses and leads
∙ Functional and fun apparel
∙ All-natural health and wellness products
∙ Unique and interactive toys
∙ Beautiful and functional beds and blankets
∙ Products made by local artisans
∙ And much to the dogs' dismay...cat items too!
Additionally, every product we sell is tested by a member of our staff to ensure that it stands up to the high quality our customers have come to expect from us. We also think you should know that our focus is on responsibility, with more than 75% of the products we carefully select to sell giving back in some way. We pride ourselves on making smart choices for the greater good.
We stock dog food. And cat food too! Save money with our loyalty program.
“I LOVE Pause Dog Boutique!! Sammy is such a great boutique owner and community member. I can’t say enough good things about her and her shop. Sammy curates the best products, treats and dog foods, always meeting my high standards and is conscientious regarding price. I never feel like I’m over paying for a product and that means a lot to me. Sammy also puts together the best dog and family friendly events, including a Halloween parade and photos with Santa and the Grinch every holiday season. We always have a blast. If I ever have a question or need help with food recommendations she is there. As a community we are lucky to have her!! And let’s just say Riley is an adorable shop dog!” – Andrea M.
“LOCAL. KNOWLEDGABLE. FRIENDLY SERVICE. That’s how I describe Pause Dog Boutique. Pause owner, Sammy, and her four legged employees are so knowledgeable about their products and dogs in general. Recently, I went from being just a Cat Mom to now a Mom of a German Shepherd too (talk about a ruff transition) and I cannot express how helpful Sammy was. She was ON THE BALL when it came to food, treats and “German Shepherd proof” toys. Pause is not just a shop but a true pack of pet lovin’, doggy knowin’ and all around great people!” – JaneMarie G.
“We can not say enough good things about Pause! Our girl Molly loves the amazing variety of treats, and we love giving them because we know they were picked with love and are all healthy. Sammy is amazing - she truly loves what she does and it shows. She is so knowledgeable and she actually knows about every single item she sells and is able to inform us on what the best options are for our crazy girl. We love that every time we go in we are able to find different seasonal toys, treats, and collars as well - all excellent quality and last even with our power chewer! We would 100% recommend Pause for all of your dogs' needs!” – Julie S.
“We love Pause Dog Boutique. We can always find cute and unique dog collars, yummy treats and cool toys. Summit, Lira & Vita love to browse the store and pick out a favorite toy or two. Sammy has great pet friendly events at the store and supports the community. I can always find what I'm looking for or Sammy can help find it for us. We highly recommend to check out Pause Dog Boutique and meet Sammy & Riley.” - Judi S.
