Art of Business: Pet Country 

Gone to the Dogs (and Cats)

Area residents with fur family often rely on Pet Country, set back from Rt. 9 across from the Phantom Gardener in Rhinebeck, to meet needs that the supermarket and big-box pet supply places can't. "My dog is on a grain-free diet," says a customer, "Pet Country has a better selection of sizes and price ranges than supermarkets or chains. If you're on a budget, you're good; if you're looking for something special, you're good. We like to have a few flavors, so he doesn't get bored; they stock quality dry food in small bags that don't go bad on us before he finishes it."

Owner and co-founder Ira Licht says pets are welcome to come in and make their preferences known. "Well-behaved pets are welcome, and you'll often see them choosing their own toys and treats," he says. "With 9,000 square feet, even the pickiest will find something they like." (845) 876-9000.
