Here to help with your pet needs

Greetings fellow animal lovers! I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. It probably goes without saying, but I have a passion for pets and pet care.

My husband and I have two four-legged kids. Their names are Akina and Diesel. They are both German Shepherds who really complete our family. They have the hard job of testing new pet products I find.

I visit pet stores like some girls would go to the shoe store – shopping for our pets and those of family and friends. It brings me great joy as I love learning about what is new when it comes to pet care.

I grew up in Upper Michigan and moved to the Twin Cities to attend Argosy University to become a veterinary technician. I loved this area so much that I now call it home!

Animals have always been a huge part of my life. Just to mention a few fun animal experiences, I have raised rabbits and sheep for 4-H, showed Draft horses, and cared for the poultry and small animal barn at our county fair. Not to mention my baby sister just started her pet family with two Sicilian donkeys. They will bring a new adventure to the pet gift shopping experience!

In hopes to provide healthy, natural, holistic, and even organic choices for our customers’ four legged family members, the Byerly’s Ridgedale store has greatly expanded their pet care selection. We are now featuring high quality, specialty pet store products.



This area features everything you need for your dog or cat, with more items on their way. This includes everything from food and treats to bowls, kennels and leashes. It’s all in an effort to provide a better life for you and your family’s dogs and cats.

As a pet specialist I can help you with your pet’s diet choices, teach you about new products in the pet area, and help you as a pet parent keep your pets very happy and healthy. I am available to listen to your pet needs and would love to show you our new area.

Do you think about what you put in your dog or cat’s bowl each day? Is what you are putting in there going to help keep them in the best health possible? Do they get excited about their meals each day or is it the same thing day in and day out? Please stop by and see me. I’d love to hear about your pet!
