The tropical-themed resort has made a name for itself among the best Chicagoland boarding and daycare facilities – catering to customers traveling throughout Illinois and nearby states to drop their four-legged loved ones off for a vacation.

From delicious frozen bones to dried duck feet, Pawsitevly Heaven Pet Resort offers only the best in treats and dietary needs. Owners not only see the top quality foods the resort carries, but they also experience the passion and knowledge the employees have when recommending the best choices for each of their dogs’ particular needs.

Retailer Spotlight: Paw and Order Online – A National Nonprofit Pet Supply Store

In our Retailer Spotlight blog posts, our team will take a closer look into some of the outstanding retailers across the country that sell Precise. We love all of our retailers and the services they bring to our customers!

Paw and Order is no ordinary online pet supply store. Paw and Order’s mission is to create a no kill nation by providing financial support to animal rescues throughout the United States. Completely non-profit, it follows through on this mission by donating 100 percent of proceeds to animal rescues across the U.S.

Paw and Order was created by Jane Brundage, co-founder of PETS, Inc., a Columbia, S.C.-based animal rescue and adoption facility known for its innovative services and focus on animal health. Jane was looking for ways to fund operating costs during the recession and recognized that animal rescues struggle to find time to hold fundraisers.

Paw And Order was born when Jane realized she could raise funds while educating shoppers about affordable and healthy pet products not often advertised in big corporate stores. When pet problems are solved in an affordable way, animals stay in their homes lessening the burden on rescue organizations and moving us one step loser to a no kill nation.

A proud supporter of Precise Pet Products for over 15 years, Brundage understands the importance of high-quality pet food. Precise, including the Precise Holistic Complete line and the new Grain-Free Precise Holistic Complete formulas, is the primary brand sold through Paw and Order.

Thanks Jane for your work to support animal rescues and for including Precise Pet Products in your mission!

Retailer Spotlight: The Soggy Dog in Henderson, Nev.

In our Retailer Spotlight blog posts, our team will take a closer look into some of the outstanding retailers across the country that sell Precise. We love all of our retailers and the services they bring to our customers!

Welcome to The Soggy Dog! The do-it-yourself dog wash center and pet supplies store!

The first of its kind in their community, The Soggy Dog opened in 2005 as an innovative, self-serve dog wash. The welcoming facility offers dog owners a friendly place and all the supplies needed to clean their pooch. From waist-high tubs with temperature-controlled water to high-powered grooming dryer and blueberry facials, Fido gets the spa treatment every time.

Leaving with a fresh smelling dog isn’t the only benefit of The Soggy Dog. Pet owners come for the conversation and friendship as well. An open layout offers a sense of community about pets and great conversation. Plus, once the bath is finished the friendly Soggy Dog staff cleans up the mess. And, if a dog’s tresses have gotten a little out of hand, a professional groomer is on hand to help tame crazy locks. It’s a fun, hassle-free experience for everyone.

“We are really a part of the fabric of our community, a gathering center for caring pet owners, an extension of the dog parks in our city,” said Tracy Bosler, owner. “For many pet parents, helping them to understand how to better care for the skin and coat is a top priority in enjoying the experience of owning a pet. We aim to engage with our customers and help them provide the best care for their pet.”

Soggy Dog owner, Tracy, believes in pampering pooches when it comes to food and treats as well. The shop offers high-quality, well-researched lines of natural, organic and holistic foods, treats and supplements, such as Precise.

“We often share our knowledge about different approaches to pet care, which in turn leads to discussions about a pet’s diet. That is ‘precisely’ what led us to Precise Pet Foods! In our regular reviews of leading kibble lines, Precise continually features many of the key ingredients that we look for in a quality food.”

If you ever find yourself in Henderson, Nev., stop by The Soggy Dog at 1450 West Horizon Ridge Parkway, Suite C-202, or visit their website and Facebook page. Or, if you just want to send a friendly message, email them at washyourdog@thesoggydog.com.

Pet Tales: Kodi’s allergies led him to Precise!

Here at Precise, we want to hear from our community. Our Pet Tales blog posts come directly from customers who have submitted stories about their experience with Precise products. Click here to share your own story.

Stephanie Hendon of Dallas, Texas writes:

I wanted to take a few moments to say thank you for making such an outstanding product!

I have a German Shepherd/Golden Retriever mix that has an allergy to wheat and gluten foods. I went through what seemed like a million different foods trying to find the right one to no avail. One day I decided to check out my local Canine Commissary just to see what they had and an associate told me about your product. Let’s just say that now not only is Kodi a happy boy but thanks to you he is also a healthy one!!

Also, I have to say it is nice to buy food that is not only well priced and easy to find, but also local. I am a big supporter of local businesses and prefer to spend my money in the state I reside, but it is getting harder to find in my area.

Your product will be the only food I give to my dogs and the only product I will recommend to anyone who has a dog.

Thank you again. Your product has truly been a blessing!

Thanks for sharing, Stephanie! We’re glad you and Kodi are happy with Precise Pet Products!

Stephanie and Kodi get their Precise at Canine Commissary in Dallas, Texas. Visit Canine Commissary on Facebook!
