Our Story


This is our mission.

Knick Knack Paddywhack Riverdale pet boutique all started with our two lovable pups! Appa the 100 pound Berner puppy who’s terrified of her own shadow and Fred the frenchie who frankly couldn’t be bothered. Add in our 15 year old cat Cole who still rules the house with an iron paw and together we make one happy, slightly awkward menagerie of a family. We learned very early with Fred that Frenchies though overwhelmingly cute are pretty much health concern magnets. Allergies, vision, breathing, spinal issues…you name it they attract it. Fred’s health became paramount for not only treating his issues but preventing them from persisting. Through a combination of a natural diet appropriate for a dog and the right supplement care Fred is a healthy, albeit grumpy, 8 year young pup with little to no health concerns. We have continued to raise our newest addition Appa with the healthiest food choices we can offer her and have founded Knick Knack Paddywhack to provide better access to the healthy food choices for our Riverdale & Leslieville neighbours. Grab your four legged companions and swing by. If we don’t carry what you are looking for we’ll do our best to get it.
