Anyone have any idea where I can go to get high quality food like orijen or wellness? Also, I'm trying to find toys for my dog like Kong or anything rubber or something for heavy chewers. I live around Shi-Da / Taipower area so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
In the area you live in the rent is too high for pet shops to be large enough to have a decent variety. The closest to your location is the one I told you about in Gongguan. The next available huge pet market would be the cluster of pet shops on Keelung (Jilong) Road, at the entrance of the Tonghua Night Market. Four blocks of pet stores, humongous to small. Try Cat Garden. From Shi-Da, take bus 284 in Hoping, will drop you off right in front of it.
Due to space/cost concerns, Petsmart, heck, any type of large hypermarket type of stores are rare compared to the West. You will not find them smack in teh middle of the city, that's where you live. There is one I've seen in Xindian, on Zhongzheng Road, far from MRT, and in Zhonghe next to the express highway. Not very convenient, and too glarish to look at.
