Barking Dog Studio
Gifts and Home Decor

We are proud to offer the unique one-of-a-kind works of over 65 talented artists, mostly from the south Vancouver Island area, and from the BC mainland. 

Come and visit the ever-changing collection from colourful to whimsical.

Goodbyes are never easy.

We have made the difficult decision not to renew our upcoming lease. With Covid along with the construction (Sept- Jan) it has really impacted the barking dog studio. We have expelled all of our resources and sadly its our time to say goodbye.
We will continue to support our local artist during our last summer in operation, so please if you can come support them! We will be open until mid to late October.
All of us, past and present would like to thank all of you for the support throughout the years, and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for this space.
It has been a pleasure meeting, bonding and supporting you. We wish the very best for you all.

What We Do

Here at Barking Dog Studios, we represent the works of 65+ local artisans.  We custom re-finish furniture with chalk style paint & our creativity, and we retail chalk style paint products & materials.  Re-Loving or Re-Purpose! We can re-finish your old but favorite piece of furniture, & if some repairs are needed – no problem – we’ll repair it first. Bring the piece in, or a photo, & we’ll talk about the solution.
