You probably won’t find the same brands of pet food at Bark! that you’ll find at a supermarket.

 

What you will find is a variety of nutritious, mostly high-end products ranging from grain-free to gluten-free to raw.

 

What you’ll also find, according to marketing manager Laurie Newton, is a knowledgeable, well-trained staff that can help you choose the healthiest food for your pet.

 

“It’s really important for us that our staff is very well-versed on all of our products and a good resource for all of our customers,” Newton says. “If someone comes in and they have a dog or cat with a particular allergy, say, we make sure the staff can advise them on the best product.”
