Two thumbs up –
I always have a pleasant experience shopping at this Petstup. From the associates to groomers, our dog needs are met. I would recommend the groomers as well. They have always been helpful, and professional (they have extensive training, which shows).
Great food that includes grains for heart health –
My dog has been on the same brand same flavor all his life (he is 8 now). He always finishes his portions and his coat is shiny and soft. Because of the healthy weight and plenty of exercise he has gained only 3 lbs over 4 years.
