With three individual chains in its family of stores?Pet Valu, Paulmac's Pet Food, and Bosley's?scattered across Canada and the northeastern United States, Pet Valu claims the title as the largest pet-supply retailer in North America. Inside its well-stocked outlets are more than 7,000 products for dogs, cats, fish, reptiles, birds, and other animals. These include specialty items that range from grain-free dog food and multilevel bird cages to hamster balls that resemble helicopters and neon-colored shells so your hermit crab can achieve success in the online-dating world. Some locations are furnished with grooming facilities where professionals pamper dogs with shampoos, nail trims, and other perks, along with self-serve stations let owners wash their own pets. Stores also partner with local shelters to host regular adoption events.

Dogs trot out of Spot's Spot and Spa stylishly well-groomed, well-rested, or well-fed, depending on their activities in the canine wellness haven. Trained groomers infuse coats with natural shampoos and conditioners before treating dogs to a facial scrub, a nail trim, and a breed-standard or custom cut, each precisely hand-scissored. Overnight stays keep canines in good company with cage-free accommodations, 24-hour supervision, and personal attention from playtime to medicine delivery. In the retail sections, owners peruse a vast array of dog food and treats, including freshly butchered meat (available only at Spot’s 2nd Spot) along with high-quality cat food from Science Diet and Acana. A full stock of doggy wellness aids ranges from vitamins and salves to padded e-collars that prevent dogs from noticing when their chums poke fun at their fashion choices.

The pet-loving folks at Walk It Like A Dog understand the deep connection between owner and pup and take the task seriously from leash to release. Before the first walk, they'll meet and greet you and your four-legged friend in an effort to establish trust and an understanding of your dog's specific needs. Upon request, your walker can also provide fresh water or food during the scheduled walk. After the jaunt through the park and sprint down the sidewalk, your Walk It Like A Dog dog walker then returns your pet to its humble abode and sends you a text message confirming that the beagle has landed.
