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.

Superior Suds

Pet stylists know just how important starting with a clean coat is to producing a great groom. With that in mind, here are some of the top shampoos available on the professional market.

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.
