Not only is Coronado Island a paradise for dogs, it’s also a great place for dog-lovers to shop! Here are 40+ highlights from 8 of our favorite Coronado stores – all of which allow your pups to peruse alongside you!

WAG’N TAILS

DOG-LOVERS SHOPPING GUIDE TO CORONADO ISLAND

945 Orange Ave, Coronado 92118. Website: Wag’N Tails

Of course we have to start with Wag’N Tails – Coronado’s quality pet store. Aside from every doggie goodie you would need, owner Melanie offers special Islander items such as City of Coronado street signs customized with your dog’s name or, if you want to get zip-code specific, there’s the Nado 92118 ribbon collar, pictured here in two colorways…

I also love their unmistakably Coronado design with the iconic Hotel Del turret! Available in all sizes from Chihuahua to Great Dane.

A variety of breeds are represented on the dog-themed greeting card carousel. I particularly like the Golden Retriever in the jaunty captain’s cap…

The mock beer, wine and liquor bottle squeaker toys are a hoot – kick back with your Dos Equis cerveza while your pups enjoy their Dos Perros…

1162 Orange Ave, Coronado 92118. Website: Seaside Papery

Seaside Papery is always such a light-filled, prettily-arranged pleasure to visit!

There’s a lot more than stationary on offer here: books include Feed Me: 50 Home-Cooked Meals For Your Dog, while games range from Dog Bingo to a set of memory cards challenging you to match dogs to their lookalike owners!

IMG_1951

I love the personality in the pups illustrated on this zippy pouch – especially the one wriggling/sleeping on her back!

The must-have tug toy for Californian dogs – shaped like the state and stylishly embroidered in natural tones.

1303 Orange Ave, Coronado 92118. Website: Earth, Wind & Sea

If you’re looking for a dog-themed journal, Earth, Wind & Sea of Coronado currently has two great options – Top Dog by Molly & Rex with ruled pages and illustrations…

And this one-of-a-kind from Portland, Oregon based Attic Journals – “Made from books long forgotten”.

They also have ornaments and home decor items like a Bulldog for your mantel and Frenchie throw pillows. Those of you into crafts might enjoy their selection of Piperoids – Japanese origami kit that cut, fold and connect with no gluing required.

ADORN

DOG-LOVERS SHOPPING GUIDE TO CORONADO ISLAND

1011 Orange Ave, Coronado 92118. Website: Adorn

Adorn is one of my favorite shops in Coronado. Nancy and Christine have such an eye for unique, charming and witty items – the bright yellow cosmetic pouch stamped with the words: “Maybe she’s born with it, Maybe it’s an Instagram filter” is an instant classic and, coincidentally, if you shop with your dog you might even end up on Adorn’s Instagram page – @adorncoronado – like Ms Taco Bella here:

Here’s another look at the Reserved for the Dog pillow, this time accompanied by a darling Dachshund tea towel – “Half-a-dog high, a dog-and-a-half long”!

Continuing the Dachshund theme, this white china ring holder is sleek and simple…

IMG_2070

And if you actually needed a ring or two, Adorn has a lovely array of affordable gems. I also love the selection of earrings presented on vintage black and white photo cards.

IMG_2063

And if your dog is looking to accessorize, check out the Say What? range of humorous dog tags including Party Animal, Free Kisses and Bad to the Bone!

IMG_2066

At the quirkier end of the spectrum, and proving especially popular is the HandiCorgi finger puppet – definitely low maintenance when it comes to walks…

THE BAY COMPANY

1106 Orange Ave, Coronado 92118. Website: The Bay Company

While we’re talking about paw and feet-related items… I have to give a shout out to the astounding array of dog-themed socks at The Bay Company.

IMG_1947 2

Every time you think you’ve seen them all another rack appears… (Sock Daddy also do an I Love My Rescue Dog design for those of us with mystery breeds!)

IMG_1938

I found the Hot Sox range especially appealing…

IMG_1937

But if you’re feeling truly gangsta, there’s really only one option…

Border Collies, West Highland Terriers and Scottie Dogs – all these fine Scottish breeds are represented at Celtic Corner! In amongst the kilts and tartan ties you will see Westie mugs, painted plates, shortbread tins and weekend bags…

And then there’s the range of plush toys: (cute Highland Cow too!)

IMG_1926

They even have Collie and Scottie dog Christmas Ornaments. Also, if you are a fan of the Outlander series you may also enjoy their range of scarves, bags and brollies!

Owners Elizabeth & Jude offer beautiful artisanal items from over 40 countries and you can be assured that all their products are ethically sourced and benefitting local communities. If you look closely at this image you can spy African beaded dog collars, ceramic Frenchie coasters and hand-stitched baby booties…

IMG_1917

Let’s take a closer look at those cutie booties…

IMG_1908

Here we have a bowl of Nepalese dog toys masquerading as iced donuts and a pink leash made from braided fabric.

IMG_1907

And if you don’t currently have a furry friend, the Alpaca stuffed toys are so delightfully soft and fluffy they are a close second to cuddling up with the real thing!

SPRECKELS SWEETS & TREATS

DOG-LOVERS SHOPPING GUIDE TO CORONADO ISLAND

1500 Orange Ave, Coronado 92118. Website: Spreckels Sweets & Treats

Finally, Spreckels Sweets & Treats at the Hotel Del Coronado has a great selection of pup-themed gifts including shark and seahorse chew toys and a cool tote bag featuring a Lab off on vacation in a woodie station wagon!

IMG_2037 2

The summer vibe continues with lobster and lighthouse dog biscuits and a sunny yellow Hotel Del Coronado t-shirt with a frisbee-leaping dog logo.

IMG_2041 2

On the ceramics shelf, there’s a ‘bone china’ dog bowl for your beloved and an “I Love My Fur Baby” mug for you!

IMG_2049 2

On every bag, pack or tin of chocolate and candy you’ll see the black Spreckels pup logo – which means it’s time for your treat now! Enjoy!
