Remaining Vigilant

Win, lose or draw, legislating animal care is an ongoing effort.

Looking for Loyalty

What can pet stores do when a brand they have invested time and effort into suddenly jumps into a new retail channel or—maybe even worse—aligns itself with an online outlet that offers retail pricing below what most brick-and-mortar establishments pay at wholesale?

Four Ways to Engage

There are several approaches that businesses can take to help educate legislators, regulators and the public about the great work the industry does for pets and pet lovers.

Move Over Millennials

Now that we’ve seemingly got the Millennials all figured out—at least when it comes to how they shop for pet products—is it time to shift our focus to the next up-and-coming generation of consumers?

The Future of Sojos

Jen Loesch discusses her new role as general manager of Sojos and why the company is perfectly positioned to continue innovating the raw food category.

The Power of Coalitions

It is only by working together as a unified voice that the pet industry can successfully battle against dangerous legislative and regulatory actions like pet sale bans.

That’s Doggone Impressive

In 2016, pet industry spending increased by $6 billion to reach a new all-time high.
