Our Story


Pet Barn Inc. was started in 1994 as a retail store in Maryland, inspired by a Newfoundland named Leif. You see, that big boy had so many problems that the vets said he wouldn't make it until 2 years old. I then set out on a quest to find nutritious food, etc. What I found out was that it was harder than it should have been. I decided to start a store of my own that would specialize in holistic wellness for your pet, and I do believe we accomplished our goal. We aim to educate customers on the importance of natural ways to feed and care for their pets. Since 1994 the whole "doggie and kitty" world has changed greatly. We change with the times and try to be a step ahead.

Oh yeah, Leif lived a very long life, surprising all the Vets. He died on my lap at the age of 10 and a half.
