Our Story


We believe it is our job to make your pet's life better and your life simpler.

Ramie & Dave Gulyas

We started our business in 1998 so we could care for pets in their homes because it was less stressful for them than boarding and expanded to the dog bakery in 2002 which grew to the store, grooming, and training.

We love what we do and we surround ourselves with like-minded staff, people who care about the pets in their care.

Our entire focus in the store is providing the most nutritious foods & treats, the best quality toys, beds, accessories, and the best possible service, advice, and value for people who care as deeply for their pets as we do.

We strive to be a trusted resource and beacon of what's good for all the pets in our community. We care about what they eat, how they play, what goes onto as well as into their bodies because we know it matters in their overall health and life expectancy.

We know shopping for pet food and other products can be overwhelming, so we set our own thoughtful standards so we can be a filter for you.

"Wonderful staff, and the owners are very friendly..." ~ Dasha
