Dogs are always welcome at Hot Diggity!
What started as a kiosk in the Cape Cod Mall in 2004 has grown to two retail locations servicing mid and lower Cape Cod dog owners and lovers. Hot Diggity offers “really cool, really well-made things for you and your pup!” Ashley Lancaster owner and operator joined the pet industry after pursuing her dream of doing what she enjoyed every single day, and that was being around dogs.
“The background behind the fun and catchy name, you ask? “When I call people, and they see that Hot Diggity is calling on their ID, they answer with a smile in their voice,” says Ashley. “That is why we are Hot Diggity. It conveys the same happiness we feel when thinking about the dogs we love. I’m obviously biased, but I think it’s the best name ever.”
Smiling faces always await you.
The original Hot Diggity boutique is located in Mashpee Commons. That location offers customers premium products for dogs and their owners. Hot Diggity specializes in collars and leashes, USA made chews and treats, sturdy toys and gifts for dog lovers. The store has been carrying Up Country designs for almost 15 years and was one of the very first brands that was brought in. “You would expect the bestseller designs to be nautical because of our location, but by a landslide, it’s the Christmas plaid. It’s a staple every holiday.”
The newest and brightest Up Country styles are in stock.
“Shoppers will walk into our Mashpee store, thinking it’s a high-end boutique — not realizing it’s for dogs!” The second location in Dennisport offers all of the above as a self-serve dog wash and full-service grooming. Guaranteed to clean your pup right up after those beach romps. “At this location, there is no mistaking that we are pretty much the doggiest place on Cape Cod.”

Because of Hot Diggity's location on Cape Cod, the popular summertime destination, the store brings in an abundance of tourists looking to spoil their pups both with them and those at home. However, Hot Diggity has a healthy dose of both locals and visitors and certainly caters to both. “In both shops, customers and their pups are our priority at all times. You will always be greeted with a smile (if you’re human) and a pat on the head and a treat (if you’re canine). While the visitors certainly make what we do possible, it’s the locals who make Hot Diggity who we are.”
How happy does this dog look?
If Hot Diggity didn’t offer enough, they also host several events throughout the year that have quite the following. Among the most popular; Annual Easter Egg Hunt, Annual Halloween Pawrade, Annual Howliday professional photos. “We are working on bringing a couple of new additions in 2019. Stay tuned!”
When asked what Ashley loves about the pet industry, her answer; “I get to be with dogs every day. It doesn’t get better than that!” So if you are visiting the hook-shaped peninsula of Massachusetts, be sure to stop by Hot Diggity and spoil your four-legged friends!
