Robin McDonald

Robin McDonald opened Howl in 2003. Frustrated with the lack of availability of high-quality dog food for her sensitive Weimaranar, Harper, she did a lot of research and found some amazing companies producing great quality alternatives to the big corporate dog food companies. Robin also realized that getting these foods was difficult if not impossible. If she was having this much trouble finding what she needed, other pet owners must be too, and thus Howl was born in the heart of Baltimore's beautiful neighborhood of Hampden.

Elizabeth has been living and working with animals since childhood. In addition to working at Howl, she is the founder of Moorhouse Training and leads classes at our shop. Elizabeth also fosters cats and is the proud owner of a rescued Border Collie named Zelda. 


A transplant from rural Pennsylvania, Kathryn grew up with a menagerie of typical and exotic creatures. Since moving to Baltimore, she’s worked in the natural food industry and has been unfortunately downgraded to merely two cat friends, Mew and Beep.


Christy keeps a small studio space in the back of the shop, where she takes portraits of customers and their pets. She also oversees Howl's website and publishes our monthly newsletter.


A pet product aficionado, Beauregard (Beau for short), is well-versed in everything from freeze-dried turkey hearts to Big Shrimpy dog beds. He has tasted every treat, played with every toy, slept on every bed, and pooped in a variety of litters (his favorite is Boxie Cat). Here at Howl, Beau plays an integral role in quality management and is an endless source of entertainment for our customers. We love him dearly.
