“Fredericton’s Health Food Store for Pets”

From 2005 – 2020

Due to concerns with COVID-19, we closed the store at the end of July, 2020. We still have some inventory and store fixtures for sale, which can find on this new e-commerce site under the CLEARANCE section.

Finding it hard to retire completely, needing to do something “on the side”, I have selected some of our best-selling treats to offer online, under THE BARK SIDE section. We offer FREE local delivery in the Fredericton area, when you spend of a minimum of $24 before tax. Shipping by Canada Post is available for anywhere in Canada.



Born and raised in Fredericton, Heather earned a Bachelor of Education degree from the University of New Brunswick and gained much of her retail, management and marketing experience before following her heart and opening The Barking Lot in 2005.

Since acquiring her first German Shepherd dog in 1987, Heather has been a member of the CKC and an active member of River Valley Obedience Club since 1989. She has gained first-hand experience in obedience training, tracking, scent detection, agility, flyball, conformation shows and dog breeding. Heather is also a Canadian Kennel Club tracking judge.

Heather’s household includes one German Shepherd, Rosie and a very tolerant cat, Hope. Rosie is one of the few dogs in Canada that has earned a Tracking Champion title; she has also earned titles in rally obedience and scent detection, all trained using force-free methods.
