District Academy Trainer, Gloria, celebrated a DECADE of awesomeness loving #LifeAtPetSmart this week! Her journey has been a special one we’re so happy to celebrate. 🥳


“Happy Anniversary to us, PetSmart! Ten years ago today I got my first job with PetSmart as a cashier. When our location closed, we parted for a bit but I came right back! Thank you for the opportunity and amazing memories. I've grown and learned so much about myself just being a leader for this company. I've made lifelong friends and important life changing moves. Here's to many more years!”




Dog trainer, Meaghan, and her buddy are proudly walking the store aisles after he just completed training! Raise the woof!!








We LOVE watching pets grow up in our salons. 🥰 Max has been coming to see his favorite groomer, Sandra for 2+ years. They’ve been best buds since he was puppy!

DC12 kicked off their Spring Referral Fling this week and are having fun while doing it! 🌺 Today is Hawaiian Shirt day and our associates are able to win awesome prizes by referring their friends and family.

Kiko is celebrating 4 years with PetSmart! So lucky to have passionate team members like him in our pack. "FOUR YEARS! Today marks exactly four years that I became part of a company that has changed my life forever. I started from the very bottom as a part time associate, quickly moving up five positions throughout my tenure, to where I’m at today as an assistant store leader. I saw the opportunities and I chased them. Thank you to those who have been part of my journey so far. I’ve had the greatest mentors around me to guide and push me forward. Becoming a leader was a milestone, but becoming a good leader was a journey. You need the support from your staff and your leaders to hold you in place and to continue climbing to the top. May the future be filled with many more milestones and promotions. I love my #lifeatpetsmart"

Hats (and unconditional love!) are in season (+ always)! We LOVE these pups getting an early jump start on Pride celebrations. 🥰🌈

This weekend is Mother’s Day… and we’re excited to celebrate all the moms of tiny humans and beloved pets that are part of #LifeAtPetSmart! Manager of Emerging Talent, Lauren Givens, (pictured with her adorable son, Cash at the 2019 Pride parade) reflected on why she loves being a mom. ❤️


"Being a mom is one of the hardest and most interesting, things I've ever done. I love being a mom because there is something about the belly laugh of a child that brings me pure joy and reminds me I need to belly laugh more because there is nothing better than seeing your kid pick themselves up and dust themselves off and achieving greatness for themselves, because of the tiny little human hands that touch your face and give you kisses and smiles and you find such joy in their joy because I get to watch my kids grow up and I get to see them be these remarkable humans who make mistakes, who achieve great successes, and who love unconditionally. "



We’re excited to welcome Kody, Tevin and Noah to #LifeAtPetSmart in the DCs!! Hello new friends! 👋
