This can be a traumatic experience for a dog, their sense of smell will be overwhelmed, on your first visit do not stop just walk around then leave give your dog a chance to get accustomed to this new enviroment. Now some dogs because their senses are overwhelmed, they will want to mark this as their territory be warned. Before you try this your dog should know the commands NO, SIT, STAY. This can be a very enjoyable outing for both you and your pet, important in socializing your pet. Always be respectful of others and their property, do not be one of those that give pet owners a bad name. Keep control of your pet at all times and the pet food store staff will love you and your pet. A special thankyou to CROQUE EN BOL ROXBORO and their staff always egar and willing to help.
