There is a toy company called FabDog, and their pizza toy is definitely the hot seller! It is a round disc that looks like a pizza, with a big squeaker inside, and comes in an actual pizza box! — Sandy House, The Store at Paws ’N Effect, Hamden, CT

  • Pets Global Zignature, Essentials, Fussie Cat. Great company, always available for education. Excellent sales rep: Andy Meese. — Greg Gorski, Cody Pet Depot, Cody, WY
  • Honest Kitchen Clusters $1.99 for a 1-pound trial size with a $5 off bounce-back coupon. — Jack Carey, Food for Pets, Manchester, NH
  • My Perfect Pet, gently cooked food. — Marilyn Texter, Pawsitive Karma, Castro Valley, CA
  • Pet Releaf continues to be a strong seller for us. I’ve scheduled in-store Pet Releaf demos on weekends to help boost product awareness. We’ve seen some trade-off between sales of grain and grain-free foods, with grain-free being down overall. — Keefer Dickerson, Nashville Pet Products, Nashville, TN
  • In prep for Fall we ran a BOGO special on Nummy Tum-Tum pumpkin cans. We gave customers ideas on how to add pumpkin to their dog’s diet to support overall digestive health and deliver nutrients in a fun way to promote mental stimulation. Many customers that may not have bought this product before, did — and they are coming back looking for it now that the special has ended! — Johnna Devereaux, Fecth RI, Richmond, RI
  • Answers Raw Beef 4-pound Detailed Formula Patties. (First time a raw food moved into the top spot.) — Janelle Pitula, Wags to Whiskers, Plainfield, IL
  • Himalayan PET SUPPLY’s JugHead’s were new to my store last month. When I brought them in I ran a promotion of Buy a JugHead, Get the Himalayan Cheese for Free. The promotion went great, getting a lot of the new toys in customer’s hands and have had a great return on customers returning for more cheese refills. — Taylor Gonzalez, Three Tails Parlor and Pantry, Columbia, IL
  • As always CBD. We sell Pet Releaf tinctures, capsules and treats. (Range: $21.99-$83.99.) I also sell a local CBD company called reLeaves from TSIGFY. (Range: $29.99-$259.99). Their product is for people and pets. I have customers from their 20s to their 80s coming to inquire and purchase these products. They love them because it changes their pets’ quality of life. From anxiety, pain management, arthritis/hip and joint issues, to even help with cancer symptoms (and so much more). The Pet Releaf has a loyalty plan just like most of the foods we sell (buy 10 get one free). ReLeaves is now working with Astro Loyalty too and soon will have a loyalty plan that we will be able to offer. It’s outstanding to be able to offer these plans to our customers. — Kimberly Gatto, The Wagging Tail, Las Vegas, NV
  • RedBarn bully slices sold in bulk were very popular with our visitors. Priced at 99 cents each, customers would buy several of each flavor as a quick and easy treat for their pups. — Wendy Megyese, Muttigans, Emerald Isle, NC
  • Heavenly Hounds – Customers really respond to a simple way to help their dogs with anxiety. We double expose it on the counter and with our other calming supplements. — Matt Brazelton, Four Muddy Paws, St. Louis, MO
  • Smallbatch freeze-dried treats flew off the shelves this month! — Katherine Ostiguy, Crossbones, Providence, RI
  • Primal Goat Milk pint and Fromm pet food. Fromm and Primal partnered for every bag of Fromm 12 pounds or more sold, the customer would get a free Primal Goat Milk. It was part of the Build a Better Bowl program. It worked; we are now selling more and more goat milk. — Paula Gorman, Pet Supplies ’N’ More, Muskego, WI
  • Our bundles are now a top seller in our boutique. After taking a training class in The Pet Boss Club a couple of months ago that was led by Doug Martin from Treat Planet, I applied the theory of bundling a few items at a set price to sell more of that item. We started with Bully Sticks and No Hide Sticks in groups of five, and our sales of these two items are up 18 percent since implementing. — Teresa Hogge, Belly Rubs N Suds, Ashburn, VA
