Business Scene for the week of 6/6/2012

it’s still a secret, but…

Pet Country Feed & Tack, next to Feather River Fitness on Crescent Street in Quincy, is making some changes. Owner Michelle Low announced that she plans on remodeling the inside of the store to make room for new products and services. But, for the time being, she is keeping the details a secret. Stop by and browse the endless assortment of accessories, feed, pets and supplies. Don't miss out on seeing the baby chicks and ducklings too.


rattlesnake aversion workshop

With last week’s article about how the warm spring weather brings an increase in activities in both humans and rattlesnakes that can lead to unwanted encounters between the two, the timing couldn’t be better for Karen Hayden, Community Training Network, to hold her fifth annual Pet Safety Workshop on K9 rattlesnake aversion training. “My dogs have been through this training three years and they keep a wide berth around rattlesnakes,” she said. The workshop is in Cromberg Monday, June 18. For more information call Karen at 283-4789.
