Adding Up the Benefits

Retailers can gain from keeping up with innovations in dog supplements and remedies, which include on-trend ingredients, easy delivery systems and more features.

Tapping Into Trends

Pet specialty retailers need to stay up-to-date on what’s in demand in nutrition to create compelling inventories that best serve their customers’ pets and their stores.

Solutions Made Simple

Paws Free

Stock your shelves with the best in automated feeders and fountains for the pet parent on the go.

The Lowdown on Pick-Up

Legislation that punishes pet parents who don’t pick up after their animals and the need for easy waste-management solutions are increasing demand for products that make cleanup hassle free.

Cool, Calm and Collected

The need for calming and behavior products is growing as more consumers learn they can help relieve their pets’ anxiety.

Profitably Playful

Sales of interactive dog toys and puzzles are trending up, powered by the benefits to dogs and owners these products offer, but pet specialty retailers will still have to put some muscle into their merchandising.

Flea Market

Stocking a wide assortment of effective and safe flea and tick products can help keep pets parasite free.

Fun Meets Function

Parental Guidance

Puppy and kitten products help pet owners care for their new best friends and can help retailers build a bond with customers.

Dog's Delight

Treats aren’t just for spoiling our canine buddies—they’re also used for training, to supplement diets and to support health, resulting in a diverse and profitable category.

Pet Tech Gets Smart

New advances in pet product technology are changing not only how owners interact with companion animals, but also how retailers approach category sales.

It's Dinner Time

Beyond just eating and drinking, pet bowls can offer owners a variety of stylistic, travel and health functions for any need.

Minimal but Mighty

As dog owners become more skeptical about products with long lists of ingredients, they are looking at limited-ingredient formulas and adopting a less-is-more approach to feeding their pets.

Keeping Grain-Free Going

Consumer awareness of grain-free dog foods and treats is high, but this doesn’t mean pet specialty retailers can kick back and let the products sell themselves—retailers must educate, promote and discuss.

Identifying an Opportunity

Pet identification is becoming less noisy, yet more social, as pet parents seek effective solutions that will easily help identify their animals while maximizing safety and comfort.

Accidents Happen

Housetraining problems can ruin the bond between owner and pet, resulting in dogs ending up in shelters or worse; pet specialty retailers can help dogs and their humans stay happily together.
