Pet Words of Wisdom – Passion is what makes us different


When thinking about independent business the question seems to come up often. What makes us different from the big box stores? Recently a bunch of us independent business owners, members if IndieBound Naperville, were talking and it all boiled down to one word.


Passion takes many forms at Dog Patch. It’s what drives me to be in the store by six am every day. It’s what makes me stay till close on some days.

Passion keeps me on Facebook: Dog Patch Pet and Feed, Twitter: @dogpatchpets and my website: www.dogpatchpets.com constantly. Passion is what keeps me in constant contact with my rescue partner (A Place To Bark) arranging for as many dogs and cats as possible to find their way here.

Passion is found in my staff that works long hours to take care of the animals. Their commitment is remarkable. Passion shows in how they treat every customer like they are the most important one. Passion is what drives us to be the best pet store around. We know there’s work to do and love putting in the effort.

Independent business owners are an unusual lot. We rarely get rich doing what we love. We do provide a good living for our employees and ourselves. We keep the money you spend in Naperville. We offer customer service that you won’t find everywhere. We go the extra mile for your business. Our prices are generally more competitive than you think. Stop in to Dog Patch or any locally owned independent business and see for yourself.
