About Us

Dogma Dog Bakery opened in Arlington in November of 2000.  From the very beginning, we were committed to providing only healthy foods and treats, and worked hard to ensure our customers knew they could count on us to provide them with the best options for their pet. While our name shows how much we love dogs, we are also an advocate for your feline friend, and show our love for them with our dedicated cat section and wide variety of healthy cat foods!  


We were one of the very first stores to carry locally made raw foods and marrow bones.  Now, we carry raw foods from some of the best manufacturers in the country.  We carry a wide variety of supplements, and we work with some of the best veterinary nutritionists to help us with our product choices. We carry a large selection of healthy pet foods, pet treats, pet toys and gift items for your cat and dog-loving friends and family. We source our products from the USA, Canada and New Zealand.  

We do make sure that first and foremost, your pet's needs come first.  So we carry a few brands that you can get almost anywhere to help our military customers who move a lot have good options wherever they may be stationed.

Dogma’s treats are baked in our store, using only human-grade ingredients, with no added salt, sugar or preservatives. We use natural peanut butter without sugar, real fruit, real eggs, vegetable dyes and no maltodextrin-laden “dog friendly” yogurt coatings. Our treats don’t sit on a shelf for weeks at at a time and they don’t sit in a bin getting touched by every human that walks by and tosses an unwanted treat back. Your dog will be getting fresh, healthier treats they will love! Dogma Bakery is also able to create cakes for your special pet occasion!

Almost every day our oven is on and our bakers are baking to give you fun new treats for each of the seasons.  Try our “Lucky Dog” cookies for St. Patrick’s Day,  our “Cranberry Bliss Bark” and “Snowballs” during the holidays, or our “apple tarts”; especially a favorite during the Fall. Need something for a special occasion; you just call and we might be able to make a little magic happen.  We are baking all kinds of Valentine's cookies right now!

We are committed to providing the local community with a unique selection of products and outstanding customer service that you may not find in a “big box” store. We strive to be a community resource and advocate for responsible breeding and for animal adoption. We support many local rescues and our local shelter by holding animal adoptions and fundraisers on a regular basis.

Come see us at either of our Arlington stores with your dog; and stay and chat awhile – we’re your neighborhood store and appreciate your business!
