Why Choose Blackhawk to Care for Your Pets?

Charlotte’s dogs and cats deserve the best, and Blackhawk Hardware’s pet department has it.  The Blackhawk pet department has everything your furry friend could ask for, if they could talk.

Food & Treats

Blackhawk carries several brands of food and treats in dry, canned, air-dried, freeze-dried, and frozen varieties. Brands include Taste of the Wild, Stella and Chewy’s, NutriSource, Farmina, Tucker’s, Ziwi Peak, and Bocce’s Bakery.

They also have a variety of frozen food toppers, goat milk and gelato that can be added to your dog’s existing food to change it up. And Blackhawk recently added Finley’s dog treats to their selection, a family-owned company that makes dog treats with the best ingredients and employs people with disabilities to encourage inclusion. It’s named after their rescue pup, Finley, who is also their Chief Treat Officer. 

When it comes to chews, Blackhawk has added a large selection of Earth Animal’s No-Hide chews in a variety of flavors, styles and sizes, which are a safer alternative to rawhide chews.

Accessories & Toys 

As for pet accessories, you’ll find an aisle for bowls, leashes, collars, harnesses, beds, litter supplies, scratchers and more. 

Not to mention 48 feet of dog toys. From tennis ball launchers and treat puzzles to squeaky toys and chew toys, Blackhawk has a toy that will get the energy out of any pup. They didn’t forget our kitty companions—while your cat(s) may or may not deign to play with them, you’ll find catnip toys, balls, feathers, laser toys and much more for cats at Blackhawk.

Dog Wash Station

Skip the mess or the expense and give your best friend a bath at Blackhawk’s indoor iClean Dog Wash station, the first of its kind in North Carolina. Starting at $10.99, dogs can receive a 10-minute bath—including shampoo, conditioner, flea treatment, and a blow-out—from their trusted owners. Audio instructions are given in 27 languages or 50 celebrity voiceovers. All wash products are biodegradable and safe for the environment as well as for dogs. Towels are provided.

Pet Visiting

Blackhawk is dog-friendly ~ feel free to bring in your pup to help pick out their favorite toys and treats. Cats are also welcome, though we’re pretty certain they would prefer to stay at home and leave the shopping to you.
