About Gone to the Dogs

Owners:  Sasha & Tom Smalley are continuing the tradition of excellence in canine & feline culture, taking over in October, 2021

Our Roots:  Gone To The Dogs was established in 2009 in Salida, CO by Laura and Tony Bussing.  In 2013, we expanded and opened a 2nd location in Buena Vista, CO.  We are unique in the pet industry by combining merchandise with services.  In addition to stocking high-quality merchandise and pet food, we specialize in Grooming and Dog Training.  We also have Self-Washes at both locations.

Our Mission:   To provide the very best in merchandise, grooming & training services to our clients with compassion and integrity. We are known as the source for the finest, safest products, supplies and food for dogs & cats. If we wouldn’t give it to our pets, we won’t sell it to yours.  

Our Core Values:  Passion, Kindness, Appreciation, Making a Difference, Community Service, Pro-activeness, Team-work, and Create Remarkable Experiences.

Our Community Service:  We donate to Ark-Valley Humane Society and we support every non-profit with items for fundraisers.  We believe in giving back to our Community through offering Local Rewards and we sponsor the Free Community Dog Walks in Salida & Buena Vista.
