|The food rep for Blue Buffalo at my PetSmart is actually very nice and not pushy at all. She only corners you if you're lingering in the natural dog or cat food aisle where the Blue Buffalo is. So, she pretty much waits to see if you look confused as to what to buy. And when she recommends Blue Buffalo, she'll be honest and point out a few other brands that might work, too. Was even honest about how the Wilderness line could make a dog overweight if you fed too much. Funny how, every time I speak to her, even when she points out a new line of Wellness or something... I leave with at least one can of Blue Buffalo.
I don't like the pushy reps. I like nice reps. The kind who will stand in the pet store with you and talk about why they feed the food, why they recommend it, why it might be good for your dog, and why any higher end brand (even the ones they don't represent) will be better than grocery story brands. I haven't seen that BB rep in a long time. I kind of miss her. I sent a nice word about her to the Blue Buffalo FB page. Wasn't sure where else I could send one.
I don't like seeing reps online, though. It feels impersonal. I especially don't like when they say "don't feed (this food) at all. (our food) will be far superior and will work best for any dog". Which is simply not true. Not all dogs to good on one food. There is no "perfect" pet food.
