The customer swears that their pet is gentle and tame, but as soon as they turn their back, it turns into a demon.
One of the most difficult parts about working in a pet store is handling massive amounts of pee, poo, and vomit from a wide array of pets.

The worst is when a customer’s dog starts peeing on everything, especially the products on sale at the store, and the staff has to go chase after it while the owner just stands there.
That’s why the bottom shelves, which are more prone to being peed on, have products in sealed plastic packages.
Those products are way easier to disinfect in the event of an incident.
