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.

Assistant Manager - Blowing Rock Store


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.
