Grandma Lucy’s Northeast Territory Sales Representative paid a visit to retailer, Two Brothers Dog Wash, in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Owner of Two Brothers, Stephen, has a long history as a pet industry professional. Prior to becoming the owner of Two Brothers, Stephen was part of the retail team before the previous owners, Jared and Dave, passed the torch to Stephen to carry on their legacy and mission of helping pets. Offering premium foods and treats, a variety of toys, grooming, and a self-service dog wash, Two Brothers can meet all your pet’s needs from nose to tail. Stephen has a true passion for pet nutrition and shared with Grandma Lucy’s how the pet industry has helped him find purpose.

Q: What is your favorite Grandma Lucy’s product? 

A: “I enjoy the Macanna Salmon formula.  The hemp hearts and pinto beans [give] a unique low-glycemic formulation [along with] the added benefits of salmon. [It] helps me keep my [active dogs] physically fit and mentally satisfied with the enrichment I create with it.” 

Q: What is your favorite part of being in the pet industry? 

A: “Seeing pets thrive on well formulated and sourced independent pet foods, [and] the relationships with owners and pets that we serve.” 

Q: Why should more pet parents shop at independent retailers? 

A: “Trust and transparency! With the help of Grandma Lucy’s and my other manufacturers, I have been able to create a culture of trust and transparency that my pet parents can depend on to help their pets live longer, healthier lives.”

Q: How long have you been a part of the pet industry? 

A: “I have worked in the industry for nine years; I came to Two Brothers in year four. I had no direction before Two Brothers; Dave Henderson, my former boss, gave me a chance and I never looked back. While working for Dave my passion for nutrition and animal husbandry grew so I could provide Opie, my border collie, a better life. Nine years later, I still love what I do and apply everything I have learned to take better care of my clients, their pets, and my five dogs.

Thank you, Stephen, and the Two Brothers team, for your dedication to helping pet parents give their pets their healthiest lives. When you shop at Two Brothers for your pet, you can be assured that each product has been hand selected with a purpose. Next time you’re in Virginia Beach, stop by Two Brothers for all your pet’s needs and for pet people who care about your pup’s needs like their own.
