Pet ‘n Shape serves happiness to people and pets through a variety of all-natural treats and chews. Their mission began in 2005 when founder Ahdee Abramson sold dog treats out the back of his car to local Mom and Pop shops. Today, the company is one of the country’s leading dog treat suppliers, offering a wide catalog to satisfy every dog’s unique tastes and needs.
As demand grew, Pet ‘n Shape built a profitable subscription service on Amazon that offered savings to members. Under this model, the bottom of the funnel is motivating customers to join the Subscribe and Save program rather than make a single purchase. Pet ‘n Shape partnered with Channel Key to develop a marketplace strategy to grow and scale its Subscribe and Save business on Amazon.
