Tired of visiting the 'big-name' franchised pet stores that seem to have only the same stock-standard products that are found left, right and centre? Have you always wanted to support small local businesses? Do you love being by the water? If your answer is a big "YES" to any (or all) of the above questions, then you'll definitely have to add Scratch & Sniff Treats Pet Supplies Store to your to-do list!
Scratch & Sniff Treats has been active for over 3 years at the local markets in the Byron shire and Northern Rivers region but has since opened its doors as an all-inclusive one-stop pet supplies store in February this year. The shop front is located in Ballina, a town in the Northern Rivers region that was established in the 1840s. Many visitors, domestic and international alike, may know Ballina as being the home of The Big Prawn! More specifically, Scratch & Sniff Treats is conveniently located along the main stretch of shops along River Street, right by the water with a beautiful long stretch of green and blue directly behind the store. Dogs are more than welcome in store, with fresh drinking water provided in a bowl for them.

If the view that accompanies Scratch & Sniff wasn't a good enough incentive to pay them a visit, then perhaps the amazing products that they stock just might do the job - Scratch & Sniff source and stock quality products and accessories that are Australian and New Zealand made. Karen, owner of Scratch & Sniff, is extremely passionate about the well-being and health of our four legged friends, and as such sources products based on the natural and health benefits that are available for dogs and cats, without all of the chemicals and additives found in many products in the pet market today. Speaking of which, in addition to being knowledgeable about the best holistic and natural local products available on the market, Karen is also a Graphic Designer and has designed the whole look of the shop, which abides by a white, blue and green look which perfectly matches its beautiful surroundings!
Karen is constantly expanding the range of products available in-store, so remember to keep checking back to see what's new! Follow them on social media (Facebook and Instagram) to stay tuned for updates, or visit them at the markets - Scratch & Sniff can be found at the Byron Bay Markets on the 1st Sunday of each month, and the Yamba River Markets on the 4th Sunday of each month.
