We are committed to independent pet stores.
You won’t find our foods in mega pet stores because we believe innovation thrives in independent stores, where the focus is on health and nutrition.
We believe our passion for pets is best reflected in neighborhood stores, who know how to help customers make the best choices for their pets.
As some states begin easing back on COVID-19 restrictions, the world is slowly starting to reopen. Still, things aren’t going to spring back to life as we knew it back in early March. The world is different now. What do these changes mean for brick-and-mortar pet retailers and their customers?
As the weather warms and you head outside to have some fun with your dog, that extra scratching and fur biting brings a timely reminder: It’s flea season.
What makes life with your dog or cat so great? You might say it’s the unconditional love, the fact they’re always glad to see you, the hilarious antics. Turns out living with pets comes with an impressive list of benefits to our mental health and overall wellness.
Keeping a small business afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic is a struggle, and independent pet suppliers are not immune. Foot traffic is down. Pet parents are focused on necessities like food and litter, spending less on toys and other high-margin items. Some businesses had to shutter services like dog grooming to limit face-to-face contact.
Cats are beloved family members. When they live indoors where the risk of injury, infection and death are many times lower, a cat can take a special spot in your life for as many as 20 years.
Getting through the COVID-19 pandemic creates obstacles for many small businesses. The big one for independent pet suppliers is the fact that foot traffic is down. It’s true that the feeding of pets still falls under the category of essential business in many states and locales.
