Aristopets Associate Noah:

I'm from Lewisville, NC and I currently attend Wake Forest University as a freshman. I'm a huge fan of golden retrievers, I've personally owned 2 in the past. I love to play and follow soccer and basketball in my free time and have played soccer since I was three years old. At Wake Forest, I'm interested in majoring in Chemistry or Biochemistry. I sought a job at Aristopets because I wanted to support a local small business with my work and its a fantastic environment for employees and customers alike.

I have 4 wonderful dogs that area part of my family. I struggled for many years trying to find the right diet for my rescue, Niko. He faces many allergies and I have tried everything you can think of from diet changes to topical sprays and ointments, even supplements! Then, I came across the Aristopets and was offered a job as a sales associate. Here I was introduced to the all-natural, raw feeding world and the benefits it has on your pets overall well being. Everyday I strive to receive the best possible knowledge, not only for my pets, but so I can also share this knowledge with others. My passion is coming to work and aiding my customers with their problems so they can provide the best for their fur babies as well. I love to travel; I'm always looking for the next stamp in my passport, and in my down time you can catch me planning my next trip. Family is very important to me and I am very lucky to be blessed with some of the best. My family has always provided me with the upmost encouragement and support through day-to-day life and work.

I have three wonderful kids, one dog(Lexi) an have been married to my best friend (And High School Sweetheart) for twenty years. My family is very important to me. We love to travel, are very competitive and dare I say, at times VERY sarcastic. About two years ago I realized that I need a change in my career, so I left working with children, took a position here at Aristopets and began educating the consumer on the best products for their furry friends. I enjoy talking to my customers o a daily basis and helping them to find the PERFECT food, treats, chews, toys and even grooming product to meet their pets need. Knowing that I can help a customer give their pet the very best makes my day feel complete.

Owners

We are Michael and Carrie Hansley; we have six kids, seven dogs, two cats and are small business owners. We own a carpet cleaning business and flooring store. Pets have always been a large part of our business, coming in contact with almost every breed of dog as we are in and out of many homes every day. Even with all of the dog interactions we have had, we had never really been exposed to the pit bull or American bully breeds. Before owning a pitbull ourselves, our opinion of the pit bull breed was quite in sync with the bad reputation they have received through the media. They couldn't be loving or loyal like other breeds we had seen, RIGHT? We were completely wrong about the breed, and now strive to be advocates for these amazing dogs. We have always believed in quality over quantity and intend to delight our customers with great customer service & product selection.
