The Salisbury Street store, which only launched earlier this year, is gearing up for a busy festive season.

Amesbury Pets was launched by Graham Eaton, and his dog Rory, to fill the gap left by another pet store closing in the town centre a few years ago.

After a major refurbishment inside, they opened in the summer, with a focus on selling natural products from independent companies.

WINTER WARMERS IN STORE

Rory, the labrador/Boxer cross, is the 'boss' at Amesbury Pets and has been testing all sorts of items from the store, to make sure other four legged friends will like them too.

Among the products in stock for the colder months is one that can help clean pets' muddy paws after being outside:

There's also items like winter coats for animals and products to calm pets if they're frightened by fireworks and loud noises.

HELPING PET OWNERS ALL YEAR ROUND

Amesbury Pets' website has been filled with loads of advice and blogs for those with animals of all sizes.

That's aimed at sharing some common tips and best practice to 'make sure your pet has a long and happy life in your company'.

Tips include how to walk your dog in the dark safely, looking after your rabbits in the winter, and what's best to feed wild birds while it's colder.

PLANS TO EXPAND

Graham from Amesbury Pets says there's been an incredible response to the store opening, and they're getting regular customers coming in.

Early in 2020, there are also plans to introduce a free delivery service for orders over £20.

That will begin in the SP4 postcode range initially, with the aim of making shopping easier for pet owners.

COMMUNITY FOCUS AT AMESBURY PETS

The business was set up by Graham, following 22 years of service in the Army and living in Amesbury since 2015.

He grew up on a diary farm, so has plenty of experience with animals, and wanted to bring something fresh to Amesbury town centre.

They're also keen to support local charities - like the Dogs Trust, as Graham's dog Rory was rehomed from their centre; and Help for Heroes, due to Graham's military background.
