Pets are big business these days, at least for Petsmart. The company seems to have identified a gap between the supermarket and pet store and filled it in a big way. Petsmart's network of stores across the continent is filled with pet superstores. They have everything under the sun to care for and pamper pets, and like a department store chain for humans, are consistent in quality and service. When you see the Petsmart name you know what to expect. They might not be a neighbourhood store, but there seems to be one in every neighbourhood.
For Every Pet Lifestyle
Petsmart is frequented by many sorts of pet owners. They cater not only to the usual dog and cat owners, but also to people who keep birds or reptiles as companions. Their selection is staggering. For dogs and cats you'll find all sorts of toys, training equipment, food, grooming supplies and health products. There's a lot of variety within these categories, too. You can buy the tried-and-true low-tech if you want or put your money on state-of-the-art technology. If you thought a dog collar was just a dog collar, think again. They so many varieties of them it will boggle your mind. As a big store, they frequently have things on clearance sale as well. Pet care tends to be expensive, so this can be a big advantage. Ditto with buying in bulk, something that's easier to do here than at most places.
A School and a Spa
Petsmart offers some pet services as well. These include grooming as well as training for dogs. The grooming can be as elaborate as you—or your pet—wants it to be, everything from a simple brushing to a complete doggie hairstyle makeover. Just be sure to ask your pet's opinion before going through with it! Petsmart's training sessions are also a big hit with dog owners. You can bring your puppy in for a few socialization lessons and basic obedience training. They'll graduate with honours.
