Pet Family - Family owned since 1968

Pet Family began life in Pets Corner, which was started in 1968 by Dean Richmond’s parents. As this small chain of family shops grew, it became clear the big pet brands weren’t creating the foods, products, and services, the specialist pet channel needed for their discerning customers. So, Dean, together with nutritionists, behaviourists and passionate pet entrepreneurs set to work to change this.

Pet Family is about loyalty and passion for the specialist pet trade. Working on behalf of the independent pet industry and ensuring pet owners are getting the very best in quality and value.


Pet Family was formed out of the success of Pets Corner which started in 1968 and currently has over 150 stores in the United Kingdom. Pets Corner has an emphasis on quality of products sold by academy trained staff.
