Hi. I just want to let you know that several people at the dog park recommended The Feed Bag as I told them of my doggie's torn ligament. I proceeded to your store and inquired about your services. I immediately signed Bucky up for swimming sessions (hydro-therapy) in your pool. Our family could not believe how much it helped him, even just after the first session.
Bucky and Zoe have bonded and he shows great appreciation for the relief he must be getting from swimming since he is not able to go for his long walks.
Thank you and thanks to Zoe for her gentleness in handling Bucky.
While considering a change in his diet (he is overweight), I received a wonderful recommendation that is working out very well.

Here are some pictures of me and my sister Charlee. It was so exciting to see her. Thanks to Miss Connie at the Feed Bag I was able to find her.
I was in the Feed Bag with my mom one day (probably getting cat food!) when Miss Connie said that she had a customer that comes in with a dog that looks just like me. My mom and Miss Connie talked about how Charlee and I both came up from Kentucky to the Ozaukee Humane Society in June of last year. My mom said that Miss Connie should give Charlee’s person our phone number the next time she came in.
When my mom and Charlee’s mom talked, they were pretty sure we must be sisters because we both do the same things like digging up the back yard. We finally got together for a play date and my mom and Charlee’s mom, Miss Patti, said it definitely seemed like we knew each other. We had a great time thanks to Miss Connie!
A big Thank You to The Feed Bag for helping me find a lifelong friend and sleep-over buddy!

Dear Mr. Haslam,
I wanted to thank you for your donations of pet food to the
Family Sharing food pantry. My finances are very tight at this time and this really helps me out.
My dog Chloe loves the food, she says thanks! I couldn’t imagine having to give up my dog because I can’t afford to keep her. Every little bit helps.
I’m attaching a picture of my dog. His name is Oreo and he is 7 years old. We used to play ball up and down the stairs but about 8 months ago I thought we would of had to put him down.
He hurt a disc in his spine but with some pills it has helped him. He can stand up now but I still have to pick him up to let him go outside. He can't run and still doesn't have full use of his one leg. I have him on some aspirin and hip and joint vitamin and that seems to help him. The pills are a little expensive so it really helps with getting the dog food from Family Sharing that you donate to them.
I was unemployed for about 3 years and trying to get a handle on my bills. I took the first job that was offered to me but it doesn't pay a lot with being a single mom with two kids but at least its something. Hopefully one day I can get back to what I used to make and then I could do for somebody like what you are doing for so many people.
Again a big thank-you.
Oh ya, Oreo says thank-you too
I wanted to forward you pics of Lily swimming yesterday. I am so grateful for the services you provide and the wonderful, helpful staff. Lily is always excited to come see everyone and give kisses.
Thank you, Leann

Our 7-year old yellow lab, Tucker, was suffering from arthritis in his shoulders when our vet, Dr. Frank Schober, recommended swimming. Jim was disappointed to give up daily 4-mile walks with Tucker, but his noticeable limp told us he was suffering.
We were delighted when the Feed Bag opened! We signed Tucker up for fitness swimming twice a week when the pool opened and were impressed with Mark's patience and gentleness in helping Tucker get comfortable with swimming.
At his heaviest, Tucker weighed 109 pounds. Dietary changes supervised by our vet helped, but swimming made a huge difference in both weight (now 82 pounds) and mobility. Tucker no longer limps. He wags his tail when we say "swimming!" and loves the attention he gets at The Feed Bag! We sincerely appreciate the difference swimming has made!

Stanley, my 15 1/2 year old Beagle-Bassett mix, began having serious hind leg weakness this past May. He was having a great deal of difficulty walking and had lost all interest in life, including his food. I was tearfully telling Connie the situation and she said "Don't give up on him yet." and suggested I bring him for an exercise swim in the Feed Bag pool.
I made an appointment, but didn't have high hopes as Stanley hates water except in his drinking bowl. To my amazement, he enjoyed his first session so much he even jumped back in on his own after his shower! I bought him a 5-swim package and it truly has helped his legs...and his self-image! He prances down the ramp after each session, and you can tell he's saying "Look what I just did!"
I'm very grateful to Connie, Mark and Kelly for helping to give Stan a new lease on life. It's certainly a gift worth offering to an aging dog.

I just wanted to send a short note thanking you and "Rosie" for the wonderful presentation you did at the Mequon/Thiensville Safety Town program. I was amazed at how calm and controlled Rosie was around all the children, especially in a new environment.
At the beginning of class, several of the parents told me their children were afraid of dogs and any animals. None of the children in either session were upset and all loved the presentation and most of all Rosie. Several of the parents' comments in the course evaluation stated they didn't know how to approach a dog or care for a dog. They also stated their Safety Town kids told them what they learned and educated the parents.
Thanks again to you and Rosie taking the time out of your summer to teach our kids. I also wanted to thank you for your financial support donating money to the Safety Town program.

This is just a quick thanks for an awesome level 2 training class. As a fellow dog trainer, I can honestly say that your classes are the best in the entire Milwaukee area. We are very fortunate to have you. You tailor your program so that each and every dog receives individual attention and you set them all up to succeed, yet challenge them, at the same time. Watching the dogs progress from week one to the last class really is a testament to how great your training program is. And all done using only positive reinforcement! I've seen a lot of training classes in the area, and none are as well organized and fun as yours, either. So once again, thank you, I can't wait to hopefully, join your level 3 classes!

I want to express my appreciation for the great job that Tiffany did with grooming my Shelby today. Tiffany listened to my requests and then used her expertise in making Shelby look great!
Thank you Tiffany for the great work!
Hi Mark & Staff,
Thanks for all the great food you provide to fellas like me. As you can see from the picture, your food is keeping me really buff.
