Petco and Just Food for Dogs and Cats Bring Real Food into Major Retail

Petco and Just Food for Dogs and Cats Bring Real Food into Major Retail


Move over pet feed aisles…real pet food made with human edible ingredients and human grade supplements will soon be hand made in select Petco stores. The times they are a changin’.

Just Food for Dogs announced this evening (5/14/18):

We have just reached a deal with one of the largest pet supply retailers in the world – Petco. Our partnership with Petco  goes way beyond a merchant relationship. JustFoodForDogs will actually be building Kitchens and Pantries inside of select Petco stores as a part of their massive store remodel rollout over the next few years. Just to be clear, we are going to put Kitchens inside of Petco stores! How cool is that! Our locations within Petco stores will be staffed by JustFoodForDogs Nutrition Consultants, which is unprecedented within the pet retail industry.

While I personally support small retail pet stores, this move from Petco is a first – and I thank Petco for thinking outside the box and welcome them to ‘pet food’. This decision is unprecedented. May this be the first of much more to come.

In the midst of rows and rows of bags and cans of feed grade pet foods trying to mislead consumers with pictures of human grade ingredients on their labels and claims of  ‘Real Chicken’ – will be actual human grade ingredients and actual real chicken, real beef, real pet food. Millions of pet food consumers will be exposed to a pet food instead of rows and rows of pet feed. Amazing.

Big step forward for pet ‘food’! Congrats to Just Food for Dogs/Cats – you are helping to change the future of pet food.

The Times They Are A-Changin’
Written by: Bob Dylan

Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’

Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
