Shopping at an independent pet store is a different experience than going to a big box chain.
Local stores often connect with their community on a personal level, carry awesome specialty products, and understand the amazing, unique relationship between pets and people.
Here are a few reasons to stop by a local pet shop next time you need to stock up on treats, toys, and more for your furry buddies.
Pets and their owners have an amazing, special love for each other. Your pet brings so much happiness and warmth into your life, and you want to give them the world. As pet parents ourselves, we understand that your pet is a member of your family. That’s why we hand-select all our products with the same care we’ve always had towards our own pets.
The result is higher quality products for our customers. The majority of what we carry is made in the United States. Whether it’s fun new toys for your cat or a cozy dog bed, we carefully choose only well-crafted, durable items that are fun, comfortable, and healthy for pets. In fact, all our food and treats are certified organic and made in the US with human grade ingredients.
Many people worry that the product offering won’t be as good at independent pet stores, but you might actually find the opposite! We offer hundreds of items from dozens of brands that we know offer superior products with the best quality materials and ingredients.
You’re also more likely to see hard-to-find, niche products at a local pet store, including those fun specialty items you didn’t even know you needed, like:
Plus, local stores are often more flexible when it comes to their product selection. We always want to improve our offering, so if there’s something you want that we don’t have, let us know!

We want to help you care for your pet like it’s our own, and we do all we can to offer the best possible customer service.
Plus, that means you get more attention and better answers to all your questions about products, pets, and more. Are you a new pet parent with questions about how to welcome and care for your new furry family member? We’re here to help with that too!
