    The Importance of Canine Nutrition with Scout & Zoe's Cindy Dunston Quirk

    in Pets

    After gaining her marketing degree at Georgia State University, Cindy moved into corporation management. In 2009, instinct told her it was time for change. With her skill set, she knew she had the capacity to achieve something meaningful, and to make a difference doing something she truly loved.  But who and what?

    The answer was lying at the foot of the bed.

    Zoe, her then 10-year-old German Shepherd had allergies to bovine products of any kind. Following a hunch, Cindy discovered naturally shed elk antlers.  Not only were they tolerable for dogs like Zoe, they were actually a much healthier alternative. Cindy founded her own company in 2010 and named it after her beloved pets, Scout & Zoe.

    Scout & Zoe's Natural Antler Dog Chews and Treats are available at 2000 store globally. Her products have been well-received and have earned stellar reviews from prestigious news outlets nationally.

    It's a dog's life, and Cindy wouldn't have it any other way. 

    6 Questions:

    1)Why animal nutrition? What was the tipping point that made you realize this was an area that needed attention?

    2)Are there any trends the industry is following regarding nutrition?

    3)What makes Scout & Zoe's treats such a great alternative to products already on the market today? What is your secret sauce?

    4)If most of the foods and treats available on the market today are so bad for our furry pals, why do large, well-known companies keep producing these products?

    5)What can a pet parent do to help improve their dog's diet if they are on a budget?

    6)What plans do you have for the future with regards to Scout & Zoe's?

    Spooky Season Alert!

    in Finance

    More than 157 million Americans will celebrate Halloween this year, with eight in 10 millennials saying they are already planning something fun with their friends. Total spending in 2015 will top $6.9 billion, with the average American celebrating planning to spend $74 on decorations, candy, costumes and more.

    Consumers celebrating Halloween plan to spend an average of $27.33 on costumes for the whole family, and a total of $2.5 billion on store-bought, homemade, large and small costumes. Those celebrating will spend the most on adult costumes ($1.2 billion), and will spend a total of $950 million on children’s costumes and $350 million on fashionable and fun costumes for their furry friends. It’s estimated that 68 million Americans will dress up this Halloween and another 20 million pet owners will dress up their pet.

    Nine in 10 (93.7%) Halloween shoppers will buy candy, spending a total of $2.1 billion, and an additional 33.5 percent will buy greeting cards, spending a total of $330 million.

    Pet Grooming: Is it Necessary?

    in Pets

    For many pet parents, grooming comes with the territory.  But what parts of grooming are necessary?  Getting nails clipped?  Fur styled and cut?  Professional bathing?  Are there only certain types of animals that require grooming, such as purebreeds or those with long coats?  How often should grooming occur, and just how expensive can it become?  In this episode of The Missy Show, we answer these questions, so you can be better informed on just which services are necessary vs those that can be done at home.  Join hosts J and D, Saturday, September 26th at 5pm Central.
