Palma Dog draws many an ‘aaah’ as he trots proudly along the street, turning heads with his glossy, sandy coat and bright, intelligent eyes. A pup so endearing makes all who meet him want to stroke him; melting even the heartstrings of the macho workmen digging up the road, who smile as he passes.
He is Elton, a Jack Russell belonging to Ulf Bernström, the affable owner of Palma Dog. Ulf’s passion for his own and other people’s dogs is clear; the sweet contentment and rude health of Elton (who he calls a ‘gentleman’) proof that his own intelligent advice works.
“Knowing that your dog is happy with healthy food and a good bed makes you feel good. I guess it feels the same as when you do good things for your human family members,” says Ulf.
His gorgeously presented store draws people of all varieties, but what they all share is a sense of design, quality and health, applied as much to their dog as to their own life. The loyal dog lovers go back to Palma Dog time and time again, knowing that the ecologically-sourced food they’re buying is helping their pet thrive, and that collar, bed or toy not only looks lovely, but is made to survive the most rumbustious animal.
Owning a dog you love with all your heart gives you instant entry into this cross-cultural society of other dog owners, united by common respect and adoration for their animals; the kind of people you meet at Palma Dog.
Humankind’s love for its most faithful friend is crystallised into one perfect central Palma store, dedicated entirely to the welfare of Elton and co. As Ulf says, “your dog is a reflection of you”.
The city’s streets observe many sleek and shiny canines, accompanied by their equally charming owners. Is your dog a Palma Dog?
