The Right Staff

Building an effective team of employees for your salon will require finding candidates who not only have the necessary skills, but also fit the image of your brand.

Going Beyond the Splash & Dash

Bathing a dog seems like it should be easy, but there are so many things to consider if you’re going to do it right.

Five Tips for Table Safety

Just like the most important issues in real estate are “Location, Location and Location,” the most important elements of table safety when grooming are “Control, Control and Control.”

Giving Groomers a Lift

These well-designed lift grooming tables can go a long way in saving wear and tear on a pet stylist’s body and making the grooming process more efficient.

Pet Westie Trim

A short, modified Westie trim that stays true to breed standards may be the perfect groom for an aging pet.

Touch-up Techniques

Retailers can help keep dogs clean between full washes by stocking the many between-bath products on the market.

No Snoozing Here

As dog owners increasingly seek to give their dogs the best possible sleep experience, bedding manufacturers are responding with products even people would like to curl up on.

Looking at Litter

As the litter market continues to grow, specialize and innovate, keeping track of changing trends is a priority for any pet retailer.

Feeding the Need for Transparency

Selling pet food products that are labeled as natural isn’t enough to build a repeat clientele looking to ensure the health of their pets.

The Best Bedding

Retailers should be knowledgeable about the wide variety of litter products available to help customers choose the best supplies for their needs.

Human Nature

Customers can often be the biggest uncertainty in your business.

To Light, or Not to Light

When it comes to aquariums, lighting is important not only for presentation, but also to maintain a happy and healthy tank.

On the Move

As more pet owners are taking their dogs into the great outdoors, the need for outdoor dog gear continues to rise.

From Tennis Ball to Toy Box

It’s been said that a tired dog is a good dog—and fetch and tug toys play a large role in ensuring dogs are getting enough exercise.

Keeping Kitty Healthy

Supplements and healthcare products have to be tasty to please discerning felines.

Getting Healthy with Hemp

Pet retailers can capitalize on the increase in popularity of cannabis-based products through consumer education and smart product selection.

Testing the Waters

Aquarium maintenance is a great way to expand your already existing pet business.

Size Matters

Retailers should encourage sales of herptiles as more people downsize their homes.

Dynamic Displays

Sales of all small pet products are dependent on sales of the animals themselves, so retailers need to make animal displays as attractive and enticing as possible.

Majority Rules

Retailers should maintain a well-stocked selection of products catering to parakeets and cockatiels, by far the most popular species of avian pet.
