Why We Love Them

Robin and Michael and the entire crew at Howl have their hearts in their neighborhood and in what's best for your dog. We love that the research to help Robin's dog Harper led to Howl and now all the lucky dogs of Baltimore benefit!

Our Story


We're Baltimore's favorite independently owned pet supply store, in beautiful Hampden. We LOVE your pets....naturally!

Robin McDonald
Owner (with Scooter)

I opened Howl in 2003 when I was frustrated with the lack of availability of high-quality food for my sensitive Weimaraner, Harper. I did some research and realized amazing companies were producing great quality alternatives to the big corporations, but getting them was nearly impossible. I knew if I was having this much trouble finding what I needed, others were too, and Howl was born.

Our mission is simple: offer high quality, natural, ethically sourced and made foods and other products for dogs. We carry nothing we would not give our own dogs and each employee brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to better serve you.

We stock grain free, organic and responsibly sourced foods from the best companies in the market today, most of them small to medium-sized or family run. We pride ourselves on our selection of raw foods, including local brands not found in other stores.

You'll also find a range of supplies to fit the needs of all pets, from puppies to senior dogs.

We love being part of this great neighborhood, knowing you and your pets, where we always have a cookie or three to share with our furry visitors. See you at the shop!
