This St. Pete pet boutique has been open less than a year, but immediately became a community focal point on the strength of owner Krista Schmidt’s homemade natural pet treats, and has since only grown in popularity. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, it seems like there’s always something extra like pet nail trimming going on, and best of all, this locally owned business keeps many of its prices almost supernaturally low. (And yes, cats are welcome and provided for, too.) 2435 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St., St. Petersburg. 727-217-5366, stpetersbark.com.
