6. Who else has been integral to the opening of the new store?
My business partner and father Gordon, has been an immense support and help as we navigate business ownership. The store would not be what it is today without his help. We have two fantastic part time staff who support me on a daily basis not to mention numerous volunteers who have devoted time and effort over the years.

7. Do you own any cats or dogs?
Growing up overseas, I had numerous dogs and cats as part of my childhood, which partly drove our interest in owning a Bone & Biscuit.

8. What has inspired your interest in owning a Bone & Biscuit location?
Having dogs as part of your family and protection in third world countries was a necessity. As a result, experience in natural raw diets and interaction with the more feral aspects of our furbabies was a daily aspect of life. Me and my father had always talked about owning a family business together and with his life/construction/architecture background coupled with my retail management experience, Bone & Biscuit was a good fit.

9. Are there dogs that hang out around the store? What kind of toy/treat does they currently love?

We have three in store dogs that are usually here around 3-4 times a week.

Oscar is our 11 yo resident Labradoodle and we like to call him a doodlehead because he can get pretty excited about toys and treats. Even at 11 years he’s still a puppy! A testament to raw feeding!

We also have two chihuahuas, Gizmo and Flash. They are our handicapped specials as Gizmo is missing a leg, and Flash is missing an eye. But for what they lack they make up for in love and joy, faithfully enjoying a bully stick or singing the song of their people to any hoomans that come in.

10. Where is the nearest dog park?
Terwillegar Dog Park…about a 5 min drive away. Look for us there every summer when we host our annual ParknPooches event!

11. What is the best advice you could give to new pet owners?

Ask questions, probe, research and NEVER get all your information from one source.

Health and wellness start with a mix of the right diet, the right environment, and the right training. People default to getting all of their information from vets as they simply are not aware of other options. Many people don’t even know that holistic vets exist! A dog or cat is a lifelong commitment and they are looking to you to provide a stable, loving home for them. Firm love, with the right nutrition (which never comes out of a bag) will take you far.

Thanks Kris!
