You Lucky Dog moving off Washington St. in Hoboken

Five years after opening up at 932 Washington Street, doggie boutique You Lucky Dog is relocating to another location “off Washington,” which will be announced soon.

We wonder if the rents were set to increase – or was it the constant trashing of the roads which led to the decision to move their shop. Who knows, maybe there is another spot in town that isn’t half a block from an already long-time established pet store? We do know this – there are many retail spaces in new “up and coming” areas of the city (especially to the north). Perhaps it’s a sound business decision!

Either way, good luck to, uh, You Lucky Dog on the next chapter.

Grooming services at You Lucky Dog in Hoboken

10/13/2011 Update:

A quick update for You Lucky Dog (932 Washington Street).

Owner Danielle has transformed the store quite a bit from when she first opened last year. One noticeable change is that she’s re-structured the layout, and shifted product offerings with less regular food, and more toys, leashes, and a pretty big selection of dog outfits (both functional and decorative / costume). The bakery-style homemade dog snacks are still available.

Additionally, a full-time dog groomer was added on-site. See the You Lucky Dog grooming menu here.

With grooming options like You Lucky Dog, Hoboken Dog Wash (211 4th St.) and Cozy Cuts Grooming (508 5th St.) doing well in this economy, it’s clear that there is a strong love of pooches in the Mile Square!

You Lucky Dog officially open in Hoboken

4/8/2010 Update:

The new dog “boutique” You Lucky Dog (932 Wash) is now pretty much open (officially on Friday, April 9th).

While they carry a few of the items that you already buy at your usual pet store in Hoboken – they seem to be more focused on the specialty products for your four-legged best friend. Products like cutesy t-shirts and organic treats which are kept in a case by the register.

Doggies don’t suffer during the recession

1/25/2010:

Replacing the doomed Volonte Shoes at 932 Washington Street is “You Lucky Dog,” a place where you can pamper your canine best friend.

Dogs are amazing! Other than guard dogs, seeing-eye dogs, rescue dogs and “show dogs,” a majority of the dog population does NOT work! Yet they have a billion dollar industry just for them. Mind-boggling!

Its a training center for Hoboken Dog Owners. They will offer a two week course on the importance of picking up there dogs waste.

They also offer a 2 hour mini-class in dog waste management. Session begins with a staffer asking to borrow one of your shoes. They head into a back room and violently dip it in a troth of dog droppings. The then come back out hand it to you and announce there are no paper towels or water source available, ask you to put it back on for remainder of class. A heckler is usually employed at this point with a raucous “just because your paranoid doesn’t mean we aren’t watching” routine. Discussion of heckler horror stories follow. At this point… Read more »

Definitely excited to check it out, but I wonder how they’ll do with Cornerstone so close. Does anyone know if it’s exclusively clothes/toys or if they’ll be catering to other (more practical) needs like food?

Its going to be differnt than cornerstone pet. I know there is going to be a doggie bakery case, treats, food, leashes, beds, clothing and other cool stuff. also the place is bigger so you might actually be able to go in there with your dog. I was walking by and met the new owner. Super nice and she told me a bit about what they will be carrying. Sounds really cool. Wont be your avaerage dog store. Hope that helps. =) In response to sookie who said: Definitely excited to check it out, but I wonder how they’ll do… Read more »

Cornerstone has plenty of room for dogs to enter — mine does all of the time, and eagerly (turns the corner from Wash to 9th to go in)! And sometimes plays with other dogs inside. Their merchandising is not only attractive (this Xmas they did it up especially very pretty), but has the breadth of supplies I need, and some I don’t, but get sucked into buying b/c they are so attractive. I know I probably pay a premium buying at Cornerstone vs. BIG BOX, but I feel good about patronizing a local merchant PLUS the convenience can’t be beat.… Read more »

Im sure that they have loyal customers and I understand some poeple will stay loyal, but for for people like us that have dogs you must admit its nice to see a store like this opening up than the same old pizza places or clothing shops. dont you think? =0) In response to lhoward222 who said: Cornerstone has plenty of room for dogs to enter — mine does all of the time, and eagerly (turns the corner from Wash to 9th to go in)!

That is quite interesting. 5 years is what Anoki? Something like 1825 days right? 1826 with a leap? And today is the 1st day you sign up for 411, 1st post is to crap on someone (twice…) and then by the miracle of the Lord you have so much to contribute in a positive direction about other happenings in town? Call me the biggest schmuck in Joisey but f’ing A baby, who are you truthfully? 5 years in Hoboken and all of a sudden a new commenter with the flow of an aged veteran? Were you in a coma? You… Read more »

what are you talking about? Yes I just signed up for hoboken411. what does that matter? and who did I “crap” on? are you reffering to the person I replied to that was bashing and calling someone else a dumbass? Do I not have a right to voice my opinion? Like I said I met the owner. We talked I posted what she said she would be carrying. Whats wrong with that??? and I did not crap on anyone. Why dont you go back and read my replies. If you have anything negative to say why dont you come down… Read more »

I live on Garden btwn.13th & 14th. I walk home from The PATH Station everynight. I shop at both Beowoof and Cornerstone. I will continue to. I don’t think a new pet store is a bad idea. I will definately check the store out. When it opens. If she has products that would benefit me to purchase. I will become a customer of Beowoof,Cornerstone and You Lucky Dog.

Sounds exciting, I look forward to this place. And thanks for ohnoivotedforher who pointed out they will have a 14 day class that teaches you the importance of picking up dog dung. On the contrary, if you need to take classes for 2 weeks to know that picking up doggy fribbles is a good thing then something may be seriously wrong with you

I think this is amusing. Could someone give me money to burn? What kind of retard opens a pet store in between two already established stores, one being only a half a block away. I mean really, someone give me a loan and I will open one downtown where there isn’t one. as Red Foreman would say (DUMBASS)

Hoboken is all of a mile long. Why is ok for there to be numerous clothing stores, nail salons and restaurants? they all offer the same as the rest of the places, but its not ok to open a dog boutique because its around the corner? they might offer different things that the others dont have. I think its a good thing or would you rather have another dry cleaning store there??!! why would you bash a place before its even open? and why is that such a dumb idea? So I guess everyone in Hoboken is a dumbass for… Read more »
