  • “Salespeople were very courteous, knowledgeable about the products they sold, helpful in assisting us in selecting which items were appropriate for our puppy, and seemed to actually take a sincere and personal interest in our dog. This is such a refreshing change from the impersonal and disinterested treatment that customers usually receive from sales people in stores these days. Shopping at Especially for Pets was an especially pleasant experience for us! Thank you!” - Cooper E.
