Dogaholics to Join Independent Retailer Conference at P3 Pet Expo

Parker, CO (August 12, 2016) – The Independent Retailer Conference is thrilled to welcome Dogaholics for the first time to the upcoming Independent Retailer Conference taking place at the P3 | Pet Progressive Products Trade Show at Navy Pier in Chicago August 24 & 25, 2016.

We first met Candace D’Agnolo from Dogaholics at our very first Independent Retailer Conference in Chicago many years ago where she was an attendee, so it’s such a treat to have her join us at our upcoming Independent Retailer Conference at P3 | Pet Progressive Products Trade Show. We’re confident her expertise will be eagerly welcomed by attendees and look forward to having her share her expertise,” shares Kerry Bannigan, Co-Founder of the Independent Retailer Conference. 

Candace D’Agnolo founded Dogaholics, a Chicago based retail store and successfully built it as a destination for all things dog, connecting pet parents from all over the world. In 2016, D’Agnolo sold Dogaholics to national chain Bentley’s Pet Stuff, however still oversees the Dogaholics daycare, grooming and training business. Following her own passion of the shop local motto, D’Agnolo is now taking the lead to help other “petpreneurs.” Because of the “tricks” she put into place in her own business, she was able to sell her brick and mortar retail location of Dogaholics for a profit, and is now teaching entrepreneurs how to have their own financial successes through multiple revenue streams. Entrepreneurs from retailers, veterinarians, dog walkers, pet sitters, doggy daycare providers, groomers and product manufacturers can learn the systems and techniques from D’Agnolo to put into place to go from struggle and overwhelm to running seven figure businesses.
