Photo Roundup: Colorado pet stores

I always enjoy visiting with owner Ginger Bruvold at Outpost Feed & Ranch Supply in Florissant, Colo., just west of Colorado Springs.  Her store proves there is no place too small for Precise Holistic Complete – Florissant has a population of about 3,600. Here’s a photo of its new Precise Holistic Complete display, along with a very cooperative model:

Photo Roundup: Zoo Zone Pets in Fort Worth, Texas

I visited Fort Worth, Texas’ Zoo Zone Pets recently and was thrilled to see owner Cody Barb’s great Precise Holistic Complete display. Can you spot the (real!) dog sampling the PHC Wild at Heart River – Salmon line? Judging from the fact you can’t see his face, I’d say he likes it.

Feedback about Precise Holistic Complete from retailers

One of the best parts of my job is working with independent pet retailers, and it’s always great to get feedback from stores that carry Precise.

One retailer I work with in Colorado Springs, Colo. is The Natural Pet Market. I heard from its owner last week, and was so happy with what he had to report:

Hi, I’m Mike, and I own The Natural Pet Market in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I just wanted to send a quick note to say THANK YOU for what you do, and thank you to Precise for the new Precise Holistic Complete line. I got my first order last week, and I have been moving product already. I’m thrilled to have it in my store. We independent retailers have an on-going challenge which is both labor intensive and expensive, when we have to drop product lines due to the cheapening of recipes. So, thanks again and God Bless you for doing what you do.

We’re happy you’re as excited as we are about Precise Holistic Complete!

Live in Minnesota? Come say hello this week

As the holidays get closer and closer, it’s getting to be a busy time of year. Things are no different here at Precise, especially after the exciting launch of Precise Holistic Complete. Here are two events you’ll find me at this weekend and next week.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 23, I’ll visit Customer Appreciation Day at Town and Rural Mercantile. The store, located in Faribault, Minn., will have giveaways, demonstrations and presentations from its staff to thank customers. I’m excited to be on hand from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to meet Precise customers and talk about our newest formulations.
  • Thursday, Oct. 28, I’ll make my way to the Paw Pet Resort’s Pet Expo Halloween Party in Mankato, Minn. The fun runs from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and will feature a pet costume contest, trick or treating for children and pets, games and contest, and more. I’ll be talking about our new Precise Holistic Complete, but if owners get hungry there will also be a bake sale and food table.

Hope to see you there!

More Halloween fun with Florida’s Wags to Riches

I work with a great grooming staff at Wags to Riches, which sells and supports Precise in Longwood, Fla. This weekend, its team will be at The Lofts at Alamonte’s “Wag-o-Ween Pawty,” which may take the cake for one of the most creatively named pet-themed Halloween events I’ve seen this year.

The celebration kicks of Sunday, Oct. 24, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 285 Uptown Boulevard in Altamonte Springs, Fla. The Wags to Riches team will be the only groomers at the event, and will also have Precise samples to give out. In addition, the “pawty” will also have:

  • Pet Halloween costume contest
  • Doggie bakery and boutique
  • Veterinary tips and advice
  • Refreshments

Even if you can’t make it out, be sure to check out Wags to Riches’ new website, blog and Facebook page. I look forward to keeping up with this Precise retailer online and in person.
