Mike Doan ODYSSEY PETS, DALLAS, TX

Mike Doan knows pets. He has a lifetime love of animals and 35 years in pet retail, including 12 years running family business Odyssey Pets with wife/co-owner Sherry Redwine. Doan generously shares his knowledge with customers and strangers alike. The former happens daily at the store, and especially in its successful aquatics department, The Fish Room — home to Odysseus the parrotfish (shown here). The latter happens weekly during the sanity-saving podcast he co-hosts at petshopconfidential.com
