We’ve had our fancy pants computer system for nearly a year now (After 46 years we thought it was time!) and now we are generating actual data.

Turns out we sell a lot of wild bird seed. We have worked hard through the years to keep our prices down and from what we hear, we’re doing pretty well. We have a wide variety of seed, peanuts in or out of the shell and about every variety of corn out there – ear, deer, shell and cracked. We have many mixes targeted at attracting specific birds like our “Too Fat To Migrate” that draws just about every bird out there.

And can you imagine that we’re selling nearly 500 pounds of chicken feed a week during the summer months? We have large bags of bedding and meal worms for our chicken-owning friends. We have conventional feed; as well as Organic starter, grower and layer.

It’s fishing season! We have BAIT! Stop by for crawlers, wax, meal and butter worms – all in stock and ready to go.

Don’t forget all of the great dog and cat foods we stock every day. We carry Fromm, Zignature, Pure Vita, Nutrisource, Solid Gold, Victor, Canidae and Under the Sun, Lotus, just to name a few. Plus, folks are loving our frozen raw selection. We are growing it as fast as we can! So many new and exciting products are available to better serve you and your pets. And now we’re keeping track of all of them on our computer!

Dog Patch is located at 1108 E. Ogden Avenue.
