Treated Well

Dog and cat treat selections are ever-growing and changing. Stay up to date on the latest trends with a collection of some of the category’s finest.

Adding Up the Benefits

Retailers can gain from keeping up with innovations in dog supplements and remedies, which include on-trend ingredients, easy delivery systems and more features.

Tapping Into Trends

Pet specialty retailers need to stay up-to-date on what’s in demand in nutrition to create compelling inventories that best serve their customers’ pets and their stores.

Sturdy and Sustainable

As eco-friendly pet beds have become mainstays of the category, manufacturers are now meeting owners' demands for style and durability, too.

Clean and Shiny

Retailers can turn a profit on shampoos and conditioners by working with trusted manufacturers to stock a range of solution-oriented products.

Easy Clean

Today’s pet parents are looking for litter box models that give them more time with their cats and minimize the ick factor of the litter scooping chore.

Supplements by Species

Learning about the supplements available for small animals puts retailers in the best position to guide customers to products that can boost their pets’ health.

Illuminating Ideas

Putting some thought and effort into lighting can dramatically improve your store’s displays and shopping ambience while boosting bulb and fixture sales.

Best Behavior

Training with positive reinforcement early and often in a parrot’s life is key to raising a happy and well-behaved bird.

Entertainment Value

Funny cat videos may be more of an internet sensation, but herptiles can offer just as much humor and charm as the feline set.

Cleaning Up With Grooming Products

Martha Palmer, director of Wahl Clipper Corporation’s professional animal division, discusses how pet stores can be successful in the home-grooming category.

At Your Service

Retailers can seize an opportunity to diversify their customer base and revenue stream by offering small pets the same types of services provided for dogs and cats.

Paws Free

Stock your shelves with the best in automated feeders and fountains for the pet parent on the go.

Reduce, Reuse & Have Fun

As pet parents become more environmentally conscious, independent retailers continue to be their go-to source of information on the best eco-friendly toys.

A Bright Future

Becoming a knowledgeable and honest source of information on heating and lighting options can help retailers build trust with their customers.

Scrub Up

With a little knowledge about what makes a good tub, any business can find one to suit its needs and budget.

The Lowdown on Pick-Up

Legislation that punishes pet parents who don’t pick up after their animals and the need for easy waste-management solutions are increasing demand for products that make cleanup hassle free.

Investing in Invertebrates

To see success in the marine invertebrate category, retailers need to look beyond just corals to the wide variety of fascinating animals they can offer their customers.

Cool, Calm and Collected

The need for calming and behavior products is growing as more consumers learn they can help relieve their pets’ anxiety.

Profitably Playful

Sales of interactive dog toys and puzzles are trending up, powered by the benefits to dogs and owners these products offer, but pet specialty retailers will still have to put some muscle into their merchandising.
