Photo Roundup: Spawlash in Thornton, Colo.

I visit many pet stores during the year, and Spawlash in Thornton, Colo. is very unique. The store, owned by Grif Kolberg,  is a self-service dog wash and grooming parlor that also sells a variety of pet products. When I stopped by to help set up its Precise display, I was impressed with its full size bath tubs, complete with temperature controlled spray hoses and non-slip rubber mats.

After you bathe your pet, stop by the Precise corner and pick up some food:

Thanks, Spawlash!

Photo Roundup: Healthy Pet in Conifer, Colo.

When I was in Conifer, Colo. the other day, I was excited to hear that Precise Holistic Complete is flying off the shelves at Healthy Pet.

The store recently began selling the new line, and when I visited a few days ago they placed another order for their customers. Check out its displays in the photos below, where you’ll see that small bags of Precise Holistic Complete greet customers at the front of the store and the larger display has a variety of Precise formulas.

Thanks, Healthy Pet!

Holiday craft event at Tagawa Gardens to benefit Colorado rescue organizations

Want to get a jump on holiday shopping? The annual Holiday Gifts for Pets and Their People is coming up Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 6 and 7, at Tagawa Gardens in Centennial, Colo.

From the event’s website:

“Holiday Gifts For Pets and Their People” is a holiday craft event for and about pets and their people.  It emphasizes hand-made crafts (no imports here!) and animal-related and themed activities.  The event is ultimately a fundraiser for animal rescue organizations in the Colorado area.

At least 10% and up to 100% of every dollar you spend at the event benefits Colorado animal rescue groups directly.  No amount is taken out for advertising, administration or booth rentals.  The organization, preparation and venue for the event are all donated on behalf of the animals.

I’ll be there selling Precise with Tagawa, as well as introducing Precise Holistic Complete to shoppers. Be sure to stop by and say hello!

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:

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!

Kick off Fall with fun pet store events in Colorado

As you know, our entire team has been really excited about the debut of our new formulations Precise Holistic Complete. I’m happy to report that one of the retailers I work with in Colorado will debut the line at its annual Fantastic Fall Sale. This will be the first chance for customers in Colorado to buy PHC, and I can’t wait to see the brand new packaging on the shelves.

You can join in on the fun at Pet Palace, located at 4094 S. Parker Road in Aurora, Colo. The Fantastic Fall Sale will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 10.  The best part? The entire Precise Holistic Complete line will be in stock, and during the event you can get $3 off per bag. I’ll be there on Sunday, so be sure to say hello!

Another fun event for Colorado pet owners planned for early October is Sweeny’s West’s Customer Appreciation Day. Located at 621 East Enterprise Drive in Pueblo West, Colo., the store will have some good (human!) food and raffles from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9th.
