The EmBARKadero started simply with a desire to share the humorous and loving relationships and experiences we have with our dogs with a community of other dog owners/lovers. We began with a Facebook Page and to our surprise, the community quickly grew to 190,000+ followers. We validated what John Grogan, author of "Marley & Me" said about animal lovers; they “...are a special breed of humans, generous of spirit, full of empathy, perhaps a little prone to sentimentality, and with hearts as big as a cloudless sky”.
We became a community that not only laughed and cried together about are wonderful fur-babies but also shared relevant news on animal welfare, health, food recalls, service dogs and on several occasions, using the proper channels and our network, moved to action to help rescue pets in need.
Today, The EmBARKadero is pleased to offer this website as a shopping, education and entertainment site to complement our Social Media presence. The products that we sell are meant to appeal to the inherent traits in all dog lovers....caring, humorous, sometimes a bit quirky and proud of it. Most of all we know that we are privileged to share our lives with such magnificent creatures and aren't afraid to say so.
We hope you visit us often and as we like to say: "Sit. Stay. Enjoy"!
