Meet the Owners

We’re Jaclynn and Evan Berna, the local owners of Pet Wants Naperville.  We have dreamed of opening our own business for years. After working for years in the logistics industry, it became clear that we wanted more than what corporate America was offering. That kickstarted our search for something that meant more to us.  In doing so, we kept finding ourselves more drawn to the pet industry. Adopting our own dog changed our lives for the better, and we are constantly looking for ways to improve his quality of life. What better way to do that than through nutrition? So, when we discovered Pet Wants, we knew it was a brand we could stand behind.

Our thoughtfully crafted, nutrient-dense, clean and fresh pet food formulas are made in small batches using only fresh, natural ingredients.  We slow cook our pet food to ensure the vitamins and minerals gained using high quality protein, make it to your pet’s bowl.  From sourcing to home delivery, Pet Wants fresh pet food provides your pet a complete and balanced diet at every meal. We have multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas, like Salmon and Brown Rice, Lamb and Brown Rice,  and Chicken and Brown, to name a few, so you and your pet have options and variety. Our line of single ingredient treats, chews and jerkies are as equally nutritious as our dog and cat pet food.

Not only are we holistic in our approach to animal wellness, we are holistic, as well. Your dog or cat’s skin and coat are just as important as your pet’s food. At Pet Wants Naperville, we also make our own Pet Wants all-natural healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax, and more!  We are so confident in how much our pet food and pet wellness products will help your pet, we offer a money-back guarantee on the freshness and quality. We stand by this promise, knowing we source only the highest quality salmon, chicken, lamb, brown rice, and other ingredients available. There are no added sugars, no fillers, and no animal by-products and Pet Wants never uses corn, wheat, soy, or dyes, which makes the food great for animals with allergies. Pet Wants fresh pet food has all the no’s that make you say, Yes!

We are passionate about pets and pet parents having easy access to fresh, nutritious pet food and high-quality supplies. So, we make it convenient! Pet Wants Naperville offers free, personal delivery on orders of $20 or more to Naperville, Aurora, Plainfield, Bolingbrook, Lombard, Woodridge/Lisle, and surrounding areas.

History of Pet Wants

Our founder, Michele Hobbs, started Pet Wants out of love and frustration. One of her beloved dogs suffered from painful skin allergies and, no matter what food they tried, her pet continued to suffer. Michele realized very quickly that national dog food brands were not fresh, they lacked complete nutrition and, most importantly, they were filled with dozens of non-nutritious ingredients and animal byproducts.

Michele decided to change that. She found a manufacturer and worked with them to formulate a custom pet food in small batches to be made fresh every month. Her animals loved the food — and so did the pets of all of her friends. Almost overnight, Pet Wants was born.
