I'm always looking for an independent, local pet store that sells quality, healthy, and a full line of different foods. Beings that I don't feed my dog the same brand or type (protein, dry, canned, etc.), it's important that I have a variety of places to purchase food from.
I was in sort of a ":rut" of places to shop. I needed to broaden my horizons and enter another local, independent retailer into my portfolio.
Doing a Google search, I came across Dogs By Design. So, one day I hopped into my car and drove from my home in Plum to Irwin to Dogs By Design.
Entering the store, initially I was mildly disappointed because of its small size. I also thought at first that my trip was wasted.
But, after looking around, I recognized that in reality almost everything a dog owner would need is being offered for sale. What I also recognized is that all the "fluff", or unnecessary stuff was not offered. It was obvious to me that their goal is to have stuff that is relevant and worthy of pet owners.
They have a great selection of foods of all types: high quality dry, canned, frozen, and raw. They also have high quality treats, toys, health aids, and more.
This store is not for those that shop at "big box" national stores. But, it is a store for those that are aware of their dogs overall health and well being and want the support of products to reflect that.
The prices are what I expected to pay; not overly priced, but, not so inexpensive either. They are fairly priced.
Very clean, organized store. The saleswoman was extremely helpful and offered appropriate, helpful, and effective assistance. It was very obvious she knows her products and understands the store's objective-health and wellness for dogs.
I will continue shopping at other local independent retailers on a rotational basis, but, I'm very happy to include Dogs By Design into my portfolio!
I love this little store! I recommend it to everyone I meet. Amy and Beth are super helpful and kind. I am so grateful to them for helping me find the right products to keep my babies healthy. I'd give them 10 stars!
