Mark Pei and Travis Flazer, co-owners of Chinatown’s eclectic Hound & Quail shop, share their tips.


Greet us back

We appreciate those who bring their positive energy in with a friendly greeting, calm demeanor and patience.


Talk to us about our community

And appreciate we’re taking risks, innovating, sweeping the streets, decorating for the holidays and planning special events.


Charge large items to credit cards

Bring shopping bags to reduce waste and don’t pay for a $2 item with a $100 bill.


Keep an eye on little ones

Our place includes fragile items that kids love to touch so we appreciate adults who keep an eye on younger patrons and customers who know when to not bring in their furry friends.
