Training Techniques

Offering the right products and advice to help customers be successful in housebreaking their dogs will not only help retail sales, but also ensure that these pets stay in healthy, loving homes.

Goodness to Go

Freeze-dried and dehydrated products provide a convenient way for dog owners to incorporate raw foods into their pet’s diet—at home or on the move—and give pet specialty retailers plentiful options to meet that demand.

Going Green

In the search for effective odor and stain solutions, manufacturers are feeding the demand for products that protect the environment, both in the home and around the planet.

Feline Fun

Cats at play have always captured attention, but now that YouTube and internet memes are creating feline celebrities, demand for cat toys continues to grow.

Ferret Focus

These small mammals need a number of different products made just for them, and retailers who carry the full range of these items are in the best position to increase sales.

All For Show

While reptile shows might not be an instant moneymaker, savvy retailers can use them as valuable marketing and bargain-shopping opportunities.

Variety Show

Retailers can cater to marine hobbyists by building a diverse selection from the wide range of fascinating, functional and attractive invertebrates available.

Ready for Anything

Whether walking, hiking, training or simply playing, today’s collars, leashes and harnesses are elevating the experience for dog owners and their pets, encouraging and enhancing togetherness.

Helping Felines Fight Fleas

Flea and tick prevention represents a valuable opportunity for retailers to familiarize themselves with a necessary and growing product selection for cats.

Performance Review

Increasing sales of both live birds and their accompanying products requires close scrutiny of the state of the department, from visual appeal to staff expertise.

Good Newts

The re-legalization of salamander and newt sales within the U.S. could open up new opportunities for herptile retailers.

What’s In A Name?

Marketing some chews more like treats instead of durable toys might help increase sales in the small animal department.

On Display

Showcasing creative, attractive tanks in stores can inspire customers and boost sales of both livestock and aquarium décor.

Room to Grow

Although many dogs have gone grain-free, there are still pet owners who have not yet jumped on board, giving pet specialty retailers plenty of opportunity to tap into this profitable category.

The Upside of Downsizing

For reasons of ergonomics and precision, groomers should consider the value of adding smaller clippers, trippers and shears to their toolboxes.

Catnip to Please Finicky Felines

Great selection and smart marketing can help retailers take advantage of cats’ recent popularity boost to drive sales in catnip products.

Fine Dining

Carrying a wide selection of high-quality live and frozen foods unmatched in your area can drive sales across your store’s inventory.

Homey Touches

Herptile retailers should be ready and able to help aesthetics-minded customers transform a bare-bones enclosure into an attractive piece of décor.

Playing Favorites

Retailers should offer a wide variety of toys to help bird owners keep their clever pets happy, entertained and well-behaved.

Food Science

Knowing the fundamentals of nutrition can help retailers better understand food labels and evaluate a diet’s suitability for the different life stages of small pets.
