Rex Approved Services & Retailers
REX Approved businesses are local businesses that have been given the REX "Seal of Appeal". When you are out and about and you see this seal in your favourite pet business' window, you know REX has given them a thorough once over.
REX Approved Services - When you use a REX Approved Service, you can be confident that your REX will be handled using only reward based methods, and that no shortcuts are taken in the care and safety of your buddy. Do you feed your REX a raw diet, and are tired of being shamed about it? Good news - all of our services are raw diet friendly too!
REX Approved Retailers - REX Approved Retailers sell only foods and products that are good for you and REX. You will find only healthy pet foods, and you won't find intimidating training tools in these stores. REX Retailers do not sell pets of any kind.
