About Honest Dog Books

Visit Honest Dog Books in Bayfield, WI

When we bought the store in September 2019, we knew immediately we would name it Honest Dog Books. As longtime mushers, we have known many honest dogs, a term meant to distinguish those dogs who work hard, dig in, never give up (think Togo).

That’s us and that’s the type of service we promise.

There are a few ways for you to connect with us. There’s our physical store at 40 S. 2nd Street in Bayfield—a gorgeous location with a view to Bodin’s fish shop on Lake Superior, shop our online store which right now is a sampling of what’s in the store, call (715-779-5223) or email (info@honestdogbooks.com) for specific books.

Or find whatever you’re looking for at our partner, Bookshop, an independent bookstore cooperative alternative to Amazon. And if you’re looking for an audio or E-book, we have that too through Hummingbird, a similar type of cooperative for brick-and-mortar stores. 

Our emphasis reflects our interests—adventure, dogsledding, nature, memoir, regional and Anishinabe history and literature along with our backbone of classic children, current, LGBTQ, and young adult fiction. Plus a whole lot more!
