It's not really about us or our amazing staff, it's about our furry friends and wanting to provide the best products available for the well being and happiness of our canine and feline family members.
The idea of Wagz sprouted from the creative minds of two Fort Collins, CO residents, Matt & Cristin Gauthier. It was fueled by their love for their dog and cat family consisting of two dogs and three cats. Wagz was built from the ground up to grow from a strong foundation of creative input, high quality products, knowledgeable, friendly service and their own unique style. They opened their brick and mortar store in the Old Town District of Fort Collins, CO in 2007. Wagz quickly became an important part of the community, a resource for finding everything for your dog and cat and providing the best quality and service for the best price.
The success and support of the Wagz Fort Collins store prompted the development of an online store to bring these same values and service to the online world. Not only did customers like the Old Towne store, but they wanted a online store filled with a variety of high quality, healthy, useful and fun products that they could have delivered right to their door.
With a growing family and other obligations, they found they could no longer give Wagz the time and attention it needed. Instead of closing it down, they chose to find a new owner who could take the torch that they lit and and carry on with the same passion and love for their customers, both human and furry. Today Wagz continues in it’s tradition to be an active part of the Fort Collins community and a fun stop for locals and tourists alike.
At Wagz we are motivated by our vision and passion for this industry. No other pet store offers such an easy and fun shopping experience for people who love their dogs and cats as much as we do.
To help us further expand the Wagz experience, we have formed a stellar team of passionate and talented retail professionals. We all came from different backgrounds but all have a common bond... our love for our own furry children and their desire to make Wagz the best it can be.
