The opportunity to bring this brand and company together with our pet businesses adds a further dimension to our ability to meet the needs of all our professional grooming customers,” said Chris Miller, president of Boss Pet. “We are excited to work with Delise and Paul Knight, Bardel Bows’ husband and wife team, to build upon the legacy and brand that they have developed in the pet grooming industry and very proud to have Delise continue to lead the design and creative for Bardel Bows.”
“We are beyond excited to complete this transaction,” said Delise and Paul Knight. “We have been blessed to have wonderful customers, great employees and some of the best business associates; with Boss Pet we see exciting opportunities ahead.

Bardel Bows furthers Boss Pet’s growth following its prior acquisitions of Coast2Coast, PetEdge and Frank Rowe and Son. Established in 1989, Bardel Bows was born of the idea of selling uniquely designed, handmade in the U.S.A., high quality professional dog grooming bows. Today Bardel Bows are recognized as the gold standard in dog grooming bows and accessories that provide the Perfect Finishing Touch.
Chris Miller, president of Boss Pet, further commented: “The acquisition will complement our diversified offering of pet products with the addition of the Bardel Bows premium product line.
In addition, the acquisition brings us an entirely new strategic capability with the Bardel Bows Club Bowdacious subscription program where professional dog groomers with a monthly subscription receive a new and unique collection of accessories automatically every month. This is an excellent vehicle as we continue developing our relationship with professional groomers in the expanding pet products and services industry.”
