You know those closet-cleanout reality TV shows, with that formulaic format? The tough, stern expert and the hapless homeowner who just can't see what a mess everything is?

Now imagine what most of your clients' pet accessories collection must look like. Not far off, huh?

You know that most pet owners have good intentions, and want to buy the best items for their pets.
