There are many things that go into making a really good pet store. This is especially the case with a Victoria BC pet store, where the highest standards are expected.
So what goes into the mix? Here’s just a few things that make Bed Bark and Beyond really stand out.
If an establishment does not have a solid sense of ethics you can never be sure that the animals on offer are being treated correctly or that the products sold are good for your animals. Always do your research before heading to any pet store and examine what they claim makes them tick.
You should especially look out for stores that contribute regularly to pet charities, make special efforts to demonstrate their level of care for animals and stock products that are of a higher quality and are aimed towards ensuring the animal has everything it needs to enjoy life as part of a family.
A good Victoria BC Pet Store will ensure that the products they stock are healthy and will be able to give you all of the advice you need when it comes to raising any animal that they supply. If the people working at the store don’t have the knowledge you require, odds are they also don’t have a good company ethos.
Potential pets, especially younger animals, need to be kept in an environment that is healthy and clean. If you walk into a pet store and notice that the water in the fish tanks is murky or the cages appear to have not been cleaned for a while it is likely that you have entered a poor example of a pet store.
Staff should regularly be deployed to clean out cages and other animal habitats to ensure the wellbeing of the animal. When it comes time for the animal to move on, these efforts will have played a large part in keeping it happy and healthy for its new owners.
Attention to Customer Needs
Perhaps the most important aspect of our efforts at Bed Bark and Beyond is meeting customer needs. When you enter a pet store you want the employees to treat you as an individual and to be able to answer your questions through their own experience, rather than through towing standard lines about the animals.
Each store should have somebody who specialises in each type of animal to some degree, especially if the store stocks more exotic pets. While it is impossible for a person to know absolutely everything there is to know, the staff should make every effort to service your particular requirements and ensure that you leave the establishment with all the knowledge you need to take care of your pet.
