The Barking Boutique is the responsible source for families to obtain their next purebred or purpose-bred puppy in West Michigan, as well as high-quality puppy supplies and accessories.
The Barking Boutique is locally founded and owned, not a franchise. Since we strive to be the new standard, our team personally inspects and approves the breeders we work with; requiring oversized housing, play yards, and socialization plans. Why do we have these high standards? To ensure your puppy is well socialized and a happy and healthy addition to your family. We know that happy healthy parents lead to happy healthy puppies!
Puppies are brought to The Barking Boutique via private transportation by owner David Boelkes or other trusted puppy lovers. The Barking Boutique works with an on-call veterinarian and vet assistant to give your new puppy the best possible start in their furrever home.
Meet David Boelkes
David Boelkes is a dog lover and owner with the passion and resources to create an innovative new standard for puppy stores. A Grand Valley State University graduate, Boelkes continues to increase his knowledge with continuing education in canine welfare from the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine.
Boelkes spent his teen years working in pet stores and gained expansive knowledge from industry veterans. He was inspired to start The Barking Boutique when he began looking for his own Golden Retriever and found it difficult to find reputable local breeders without doing extensive research. The Barking Boutique solves that problem by operating as a fully transparent business, supporting only breeders with the highest standards.
