Pet Food Express: A One-Stop-Shop For Your Pet’s Needs (Plus Sweepstakes)

This post is sponsored by on behalf of Pet Food Express.

My dogs are everything to me! I have the easiest little dog ever and an active puppy that requires a lot of attention and training. With so much love in my heart for my pups, I want the best for each of them. Luckily Pet Food Express: a one-stop shop for your pet’s needs is just miles away so I can care for my dogs with ease. I can’t wait to tell you all Pet Food Express has to offer its customers and your pets, plus how you can adopt and possibly earn some awesome prizes!

About my dogs

Meet Penny, my 6 month old Goldendoodle

Lucy is a 9 year old Dorkie (Dachshund/Yorkie mix) who is mild-mannered and low maintenance. We call her our little snuggle bug. Early this year we got Penny, a sweet, but spirited and active Goldendoodle Puppy. We have had so much fun watching Penny grow and see her personality shine, but it’s not without its struggles. One thing I’ve learned is that puppies can require a lot of work, time and money, but it can be made easier with proper help!

Pet Food Express Offerings

Dog Training:

Big dogs can wreak havoc if not properly trained so we’ve been focusing a lot of energy on teaching Penny good behaviors and manners. Pet Food Express has privately contracted dog trainers who hold classes right there in the store. Some will even come to your house if you prefer. The store also has a slew of products to help train your animals. We train Penny with lots of little treats (she’s so food-driven) so I picked up a treat pouch that clips onto the waistband. No more digging treats out of my pocket! 

Healthy Food Offerings

Pet Food Express prides themselves in carrying the best dog food and only the most trusted brands that employees would feed their own dogs. I have never seen so many healthy food offerings in one pet store. With your dog’s health in mind you can shop from wet, kibble, raw, frozen, freeze dried and dehydrated dog food. I even chatted with an employee who gave me tips to try sides and toppers for Lucy’s food, to help get her excited about her food again. Because we are doing lots of training these days, we stay stocked up on grain free treats for our girl and the price is always right.

In-store Wellness Centers and Veterinary Clinics

A healthy pet is a happy pet

A healthy pet is a happy pet. Whether your pet needs a vaccine, checkup or you have a concern, you can pop into the wellness center on a walk-in basis while you’re doing your shopping. You can also schedule ahead if that’s more your speed. Pet Food Express clinics have competitive pricing because ultimately they care about having healthier pets. They also have vitamins and supplements in-store so you don’t have to head to another shop to get what you need to get your pet in tip top shape. Talk about convenience! 

Pet Wash

If washing your pet at home is too hard or you don’t want to deal with the mess, the pet wash stations are incredible! They offer a 25 minute cycle and provide shampoo and conditioner, rinse and dry! I especially love the clips to help hold my Penny girl in place so she can’t jump out of the tub or hurt herself. You can also use as many towels as you need and they provide an apron to keep you clean.

Knowledgeable Staff

A dog harness is great for leash training

I love how friendly and knowledgeable all of the Pet Food Express staff are. Every one of my visits are greeted with friendliness and an eagerness to help. From directing me to the best training products to how to deal with my pups wanting to eat each other’s food, my expectations are always exceeded. During my last visit a staff member helped me fit Penny in a harness so we could have happier and more productive walks without all the tugging and pulling. I’m so thankful because this girl is getting stronger and she sure loves her walks, so now I can love them too. 

Pet Supplies

Of course, you can find a variety of other pet supplies like any traditional pet store. From beds to crates and food dishes to leashes and dog tags, you’re sure to find everything you’re looking for.

Virtual Pet Fair

Last and probably best of all, Pet Food Express helps with animal adoption! Pet Food Express has helped find forever homes for more than 23,000 animals through its 64 California stores and the annual Bay Area Pet Fair. Join this year’s virtual pet fair to adopt one of over 7,000 pets. Running September 1 – 30th, you can search the platform by animal type, age, shelter location or rescue/shelter name. 

During the event there will be donations, prizes and fun activities all in the interest in finding homes for every last loveable pet. Each adopted pet and their families will receive a swag bag full of FREE goodies and pet gear plus a 20% discount at Pet Food Express to set up their new home. As a bonus, Pet Food Express will donate $25 for every pet adopted through the event platform.

Throughout the Virtual Pet Fair, attendees can sit in on Live Q&As with shelters and rescues, product manufacturers, and animal centric nonprofits. You can also tune into hosted seminars with live speakers every hour on the hour with special guest Animal Planet’s Cat Expert Jackson Galaxy. Come away from the event with information on nutrition, training, humane and sustainable products, animal-assisted therapy, service animal training and placement, wildlife rescue and rehab and more. 

Be sure not to miss the special 9/11 Memorial Tribute to CA Search & Rescue and of course, the in-person animal adoptions. Local animal rescues will bring in adoptable pets like dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, birds and bunnies for animal lovers to meet in person at participating stores.
