Plug Into the Data Revolution

There is an abundance of information available to help pet specialty retailers improve their businesses, provided they know what to look for and where it can be found.

The Road to Success

The pet specialty retail channel has a rosy future, if it can take advantage of the positive economic trends that are expected over the next few years.

What Tomorrow Brings

Pet Business examines three major challenges that threaten the pet industry's well-being, and how retailers should prepare for what it is to come.

Head of the Class

The 2014 Pet Business Top 25 Retailers List reveals that North America's mid-sized pet specialty chains continue to grow stronger-thanks, in large part, to a clear focus on service and nutrition.

Born in the USA

Driven by concerns about product safety and a desire to support a troubled domestic economy, a growing number of pet owners are seeking out products that are made in the United States

Sink or Swim

Retailers and manufacturers in the aquatics segment of the pet industry are rethinking their strategies and adjusting to meet the challenging market forces they face today.

The Changing Face of Pet Ownership

The pet industry will have to respond to fundamental changes in consumer demographics in order to maintain success to the year 2020 and beyond.

A Narrowing Pipeline

Will consolidation among pet industry distributors make it more difficult for independent retailers to access the products they need to set themselves apart from their competition?

Show Stopper

By taking the right approach, pet retailers can turn showrooming shoppers into loyal customers and even vocal advocates of the store.

Restoring Confidence

Today's shoppers are approaching the pet food aisle with a healthy dose of skepticism, so pet retailers must go above and beyond to ensure confidence in this important segment of their business.

Taking the Puppy Out of the Window

Three independent pet retailers share their experiences of life after puppy sales.

An Amazonian Challenge

Wielding formidable weapons such as low overhead and unlimited shelf space, Internet retail giant Amazon.com is testing brick-and-mortar stores like never before.

Riding the Next Wave

For pet retailers, the ability to identify the hottest product trends is key to sustaining success through the fourth quarter of 2012 and beyond.

Investing in the Future

Without a concerted, wide-scale effort, the pet industry risks losing ground with today's technology-driven kids-and tomorrow's customers.

A Healthy Debate

While health and wellness products clearly represent a great growth opportunity for pet specialty retailers, the jury is still out on the best way to make the most of this burgeoning market.

What Recovery?

A turbulent year for the economy has raised some serious questions about what we can expect in terms of a post-recession rebound. What does this mean for pet specialty retailers as the calendar flips to 2012?

Diversity in Decline

Even as dog and cat ownership continues to rise, other pet categories are dropping off. What does this mean for the pet industry, and can the trend be reversed?

Riding the Next Wave

Pet product marketers must prepare for the inevitable end of the baby-boomer boom by reaching out to emerging consumer demographics.

Natural Progression

The retail pet industry’s trend toward natural and eco-friendly products has quickly gained momentum over the past several years, and pet specialty stores are positioned to profit from this movement.

Fighting for a Share

As mass retailers get more involved with the pet category, the onus is on pet specialty chains to come up with ways to survive and thrive in this increasingly crowded marketplace.
