Education is at the core of who we are. The Puppy & New Dog Starter Kit is the perfect educational program for new pet parents.

Kriser’s, a multi-unit pet retailer specializing in natural pet food, supplies and grooming, has partnered with The Original Dog Whisperer Paul Owens, best-selling author of five pet training books and DVDs, to create a Puppy & New Dog Starter Kit, available exclusively in the 26 Kriser’s locations nationwide. The kit, in-stores starting in January for National Train Your Dog Month, features a training DVD, a handbook featuring health and wellness and training tips and $95 worth of Kriser’s coupons, making it a must-have for anyone adopting a new puppy or dog.

“Kriser’s takes great pride in leading the healthy pet movement in our communities, and training and the health and wellness of newly adopted pets is critical to all of us at Kriser’s,” says Brad Kriser, founder and CEO of Kriser’s Natural Pet. “Education is at the core of who we are. The Puppy & New Dog Starter Kit is the perfect educational program for new pet parents.”

Kriser adds, “New pet parents can become quickly overwhelmed with the demands of a puppy or super energetic rescue. The Starter Kit provides multi-media instruction and shows them exactly what to do and how to do it, all using positive training methods. We at Kriser’s feel the Starter Kit will benefit dogs and their families for decades to come.”

A unique feature of the Puppy & New Dog Starter Kit is the Read It / Watch It design which allows new pet parents to watch a video clip of the behavior in the training booklet simply by scanning the appropriate QR code with their smartphone or tablet.

Paul Owens, known by many as the Original Dog Whisperer, is celebrating his 40th anniversary of professional dog training and is one of the leading proponents of nonviolent, reward-based dog training in the world. A best-selling author of the original Dog Whisperer and Puppy Whisperer books and DVDs, and a frequent guest trainer in one of Kriser’s Southern California stores, Owens has created this kit specifically for the Kriser’s customer.

“I am very excited to be able to introduce this unprecedented program for new puppy and dog adopters, and I can think of no better retail partner than Kriser’s Natural Pet,” says Owens. “Their dedication to providing natural pet food and supplies, combined with their focus on great service and education, is a model for others to follow.”

The coupons found in the kit help any pet parent get outfitted for their new arrival. With discounts on food, training treats, health and wellness supplements, leashes, collars and toys, plus a “Free Puppy Bath” or discount towards Kriser’s grooming services, the kit makes for a perfect start to a pet’s new life.

The Puppy & New Dog Starter Kit is sold at the 26 Kriser’s stores in Chicagoland, Greater Denver, the Houston area and Southern California for $19.99. For more information visit
