Other End of the Leash Pet Boutique & Bakery is Durham’s locally owned source for the highest quality, fairly traded pet supplies, holistic nutrition and wellness product expertise. OEOTL is Downtown Durham’s only pet boutique & bakery, independently owned by longtime Durham residents Diane Groff and LeAnn Hinson and staffed by a skilled, knowledgeable, and attentive staff of wellness product specialists.

OEOTL serves Durham area pet owners seeking a distinctive, locally owned source for USA and fairly traded nutritional supplements, food, toys, leashes, and collars, as well as pet-themed jewelry and merchandise for your home. We bake treats daily in our on-site gluten-free kitchen as well as host in-store informational workshops, speakers and special events on a regular basis. We look forward to meeting you and your pet soon!

Our number one goal is and always has been providing the best quality products for our customers and your fur children. Even when a decision results in us realizing less revenue or discontinuing to sell a brand, we are willing to make changes when it is in the best interest of pets.

Rest assured we are researching all of the information recently released by the FDA and independent researchers, regarding the potential relationship between grain free food and Canine Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM). In their report, the FDA concludes that “the agency believes that the potential association between diet and DCM in dogs is a complex scientific issue that may involve multiple factors.” We agree with that conclusion.

Unfortunately, some media outlets have erroneously reported that the FDA has concluded that the sixteen brands of dog food identified in the 524 cases they have analyzed thus far, cause DCM. We have already been in touch with the heads of Fromm, Champion (Acana and Orijen) and Zignature to gather as much additional information as possible in order to help our customers make well informed decisions on pet nutrition.

If you have any concerns we encourage you all to read the entirety of the FDA report. We welcome the opportunity to discuss foods, treats, and all things pet related with you at any time! We look forward to having you stop by with any questions you may have. Thank you for your business and support.
