  • Etta Says Crunchy Chew Bars duck and/or pork. Jack Carey, Food For Pets, Manchester & Amherst, NH

  • CBD Chew Treats by Treatibles for small and large dogs. They offer intro-size packages to see if dogs respond well to product. Great repeat sales. Jane Donley, Dog Beach Dog Wash, San Diego, CA
  • Pet Releaf Large Breed treats. Mostly to customers who have pets with anxiety. I love to sell it because it really works. Monica Swank, Lupine Kennels Boarding and Grooming, Amery, WI
  • Bone broth products continue to be hot. Small-batch broths frozen, dried and ready to use are an easy way to add tons of nutrients to dog and cat feeding. Primal small-batch broths and Nature’s Logic dried have moved very well. We have had them on sale throughout the winter months. Karen Conell, The Bark Market, Delavan, WI

  • HQ 80018D cage. This playtop cage has been a top performer. Our customers love the fact that they can incorporate a play area within the cage, and it fits many smaller sized birds well. All Pet Supplies is the distribution center we get this through, and the owner, Gilbert, has always stood by the products we get from this company. Sal Salafia, Exotic Pet Birds, Rochester, NY


  • Our best-selling service was Baths & Brush Outs on the day pets head home from boarding. We like to sell it because pets can have a blast in playgroups, exercise times or even walks while they’re staying with us but go home sparkling clean and not shedding. Trish Elliott, Town & Country Pet Resort, Valley Springs, CA
  • Healthy Smile Pet Dental — Anesthetic-Free Teeth Cleaning. We promote it every day on a big screen TV by our register. Audree Berg, Auggie’s Doggies Pet Supplies, Fort Lauderdale, FL
