This relationship allows J&J Dog Supplies to leverage Ray Allens manufacturing excellence and long-standing vendor relationships while freeing me up to focus on new sales channels and growth of the J&J product line. Steve Cates, President of Ray Allen, added We are thrilled to announce this partnership with J&J Dog Supplies. J&J holds a long-standing, leading position in the obedience and agility dog niche markets and we hope to build upon that position over the long-term. We are fortunate to add John Oakley to our senior management team. John will continue to support J&J Dog, but Ray Allen will also benefit from his 20+ years of experience in all facets of operations.
