The Art of Traveling with Pets

Traveling with a companion animal requires pet owners to plan strategically. Pet retailers that understand a customer's specific plans can help make travel less stressful for the pet and its owner.

Getting a Grip

Behavior-modification products and calming aids provide pet specialty retailers with effective ways to help owners reduce their dog's stress and get a handle on problem behaviors.

Making a Smart Play

Pet owners are supplementing simple feathered wands and games of fetch with increasingly stimulating and sophisticated pet toys.

Getting Into the Waste-Management Business

Retailers can help their customers take some of the unpleasantness out of cleaning up after their pets by tapping into the evolving pick-up product category.

Free-Flowing Sales

Retailers that devote some shelf space to automated feeders and fountains can enjoy higher transactions and repeat customers.

Product Round Up: Pet Bowls

These notable pet bowls can add flare to any home décor, while serving delicious meals to canine companions.

Beating the Bugs

Fleas and ticks spell big problems for dogs and their owners, but pet retailers have plenty of product options to help keep these pests at bay.

Tackling Treats

Pet retailers that depend on the dog treat category as a profit center must be able to navigate a fast-growing selection of products and shifting shopper preferences.

A Reason to Smile

More pet owners are incorporating dental care into their pet's routine at home, making the category lucrative for informed pet retailers.

Making Sales Soar

Boosting dog food sales is not rocket science, but it does require retailers to focus some energy on presentation and promotion.

Product Round Up: Dog-Walking Essentials

From staying hydrated to easy waste-management, these noteworthy products make walking the family dog a breeze.

Welcome Aboard

Pet retailers that are prepared to answer common questions about pet carriers-and merchandise these products well-will have happy traveling customers.

Back in Training

The need for housebreaking assistance is greater than ever. Product manufacturers have responded by developing effective solutions, spelling hope for discouraged dog owners and strong sales for retailers.

Less Mess, Less Stress

Retailers that get stain and odor products into the hands of new pet owners can help ensure a more harmonious relationship for the pet and its human companion.

Power Play

Dog toys offer pet specialty retailers a way to easily inject excitement and energy into their stores. However, making the most of this popular category requires thoughtful strategies and creative merchandising.

Product Round Up: Oral Care

Bad doggy breath can be a turn off to dog owners who love to get close and cozy with their pups, and poor oral health can lead to more serious issues. These oral care products may help freshen breath and make teeth glisten.

Supporting Good Health

Canine healthcare products and supplements not only help dog owners improve their pet's well-being and comfort, they give retailers a way to enhance customer loyalty and build a stronger business.

Show Some ID

Offering pet identification products and engraving services drives traffic into pet stores and puts a potentially life-saving tool into the hands of appreciative customers.

Product Round Up: Carriers Carried Away

Whether near or far, more animals than ever are traveling with their human counterparts, and these noteworthy carriers can become a pet's home away from home.

Making a Difference

The right kinds of canine nutrition products offer retailers the opportunity to significantly impact pet well-being, leading to happier customers, repeat business and healthier sales.
