A new Bay Ridge pet shop is hoping to make some “fur-ever” customers.

Wagging Tails, 9508 Fourth Avenue, celebrated its grand opening last month, fresh off its soft opening in early February. The store – its outside signage as bright and vibrant as its variety of products inside – offers everything from pet supplies to grooming and even boarding.

“We have a little bit of everything,” said owner Laura Generoso, a Bay Ridge native. “We have a whole range of products for cats, dogs, reptiles, fish; we carry some small animals; we do grooming and even some boarding.”

The shop may only carry small animals (inside the shop are a plethora of fish, birds and other handheld creatures), but that doesn’t stop it from being a one-stop shop for just about any pet owner. “We have everything any animal might need,” said Generoso.

This isn’t Generoso’s first rodeo, either.

“I’ve been in the business for many years, so I’m excited to get back to where it all started for me,” she said, referencing her alma mater, St. Patrick’s Catholic Academy, across the street. “I’m a real animal lover so what I do is really important to me.”

Generoso isn’t the only one with experience at Wagging Tails. The shop’s groomer, she said, has been doing his thing for more than six years. “Usually, when animals come in to be groomed, they just want to get out of here – but not with him,” she said. “They love him.”

For her, the store’s success, she said, lies in its response from its clientele.

“Animals always know,” Generoso said.

Wagging Tails is open seven days a week. Store hours are 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, stop by or call the store at 718-238-7904.
