Speedy Recovery

First-aid and wound-care products help pet owners care for their injured animals and help retailers become a trusted resource for the local pet-owning community.

Staying Stylishly Connected

Dog collars, leashes and harnesses allow pet owners to keep their pets safely, fashionably and comfortably at their sides, while affording retailers a revenue-boosting opportunity.

Form Meets Function

The dog apparel category has become ever more focused on offering functional, yet high-style and fashionable, garments that serve a purpose.

The Wilder Side of Protein

Today's pet parents are not just bringing home the bacon, they are bringing home the wild boar-and bison, ostrich or kangaroo-as exotic-protein pet diets gain popularity.

Raising Expectations

Baked and gourmet treats thrive as consumers seek special items for their pets that are both nutritious and decadent.

Creating Cushy Sales

Manufacturers of plush dog toys are continually coming out with innovative, appealing products, helping pet specialty retailers keep the shelves fresh and exciting.

Stay on the Side of Safety

Pet gates, pens and crates must keep animals safe, and not just by securing them inside the house or yard.

Super Bowl

The dog bowl category is getting hotter and hotter as manufacturers launch creative, functional solutions that add excitement to the shelves and good rings at the register.

Safety During the Dog Days

When outdoor summer fun is on the agenda, pet parents need guidance from retailers on the safety precautions that could potentially save the life of their beloved dog.

Raw Foods, Done Well

Consumers are interested in raw pet food diets, so manufacturers and retailers are expanding their offerings.

The Future is Now

Technology is no longer limited to the human product domain. High-tech advances have hit the pet world and are changing lives for the better.

Answering the Call

The supplements and remedies category offers pet specialty retailers effective tools to help customers who are increasingly searching for ways to keep their dogs happy and healthy.

Wherever You Go, Sparky Will Follow

Pet travel products help pet owners take their loved ones around the world or around the block.

Cool and Collected

Calming aids and behavior modification/training products are essential in a world where canines accompany their humans everywhere, offering pet specialty retailers an opportunity to help and profit.

Two Can Play At That Game

Manufacturers are boosting their offerings of puzzles and interactive toys to help owners play with their pets.

Simplifying Waste Management

Managing pet waste remains a growing concern in communities across the country, and retailers can help by offering the right solutions.

Covering All the Bases

To successfully add training services to a pet store, retailers must make sure they are working with the right trainer and offering the right instruction.

Flea Bitten and Ticked Off

Not only are parasites such as fleas and ticks a nuisance, they can pose a real health risk for pets and their owners. Retailers have an opportunity to protect both with the right lineup of products.

The Treating's Good

As consumers continue to make healthier snacking choices for themselves, they are doing the same for their four-footed family members by seeking out dog treats that satisfy and are good for them as well.

Beyond the Bowl

Everything else has gone high tech. Why not feeding and watering? Automated feeders and fountains are revolutionizing the basics.
