The Doggie Boat Location


nb Sola Gratia, the home of The Doggie Boat!
nb Sola Gratia.

The Doggie Boat is always available online, regardless of where we are, for sales and open most of the day for telephone calls if you wish to discuss anything. When trading at a Festival, or a “pop-up”, this will be advertised on the website and Social Media in advance.

If you want to find the Doggie Boat, the current location is shown below – please note that the boat may be cruising at the time, so this could be changing.

The crew are always delighted for you to come and meet them. Feel free to discuss the merits of the healthy treats and look through the extensive range of toys (including interactive feeders), collars, leads and bandanas – as well as the many other items that they stock.

Towpath Trading & Floating Markets:

If you want to buy direct if the Doggie Boat is in your area, then Tim & Tracey will be more than happy to oblige. However, it is always best to check first – just in case they move off before you get to them! So, if you want to visit at the current location, then just give them a ring first on 07736 009304.

On the Move

We are currently separated from our boat, which is in Long Eaton for repainting. Our location is Shardlow, where we are temporarily in bricks and mortar. But don’t worry, we have all the stock with us! So, if you are in walking distance of the canal in Shardlow, or from the Skylink bus route in either Castle Donington or Alvaston, we are happy to drop off to you. Just select “Local Pickup” at checkout.
