A Scratch Above the Rest

With the number of cat owners on the rise, cat scratchers and climbers are the purr-fect products for retailers looking for a new profit center.

Pet Feeders of the Future

It is 2016, and even Fido is going high-tech. Automated feeders and fountains offer opportunities for retailers to rethink the standard category.

Feline Friendly Grooming

While cats are indeed known for their tidy ways, it is sometimes necessary for pet owners to lend their felines a little assist in the grooming area.

Keeping Felines Fit

As cat parents explore methods of maximizing feline health, retailers must stock shelves with trustworthy products and provide guidance to pet owners.

Oral Care Options

Consumers are seeking oral care products that make it easy to ensure optimum dental health for their pets.

Well-Being Boosters

Retailers have an opportunity to build customer relationships and help pets live the healthiest lives possible by investing in the remedies and supplements category.

Finding Kitty’s Frisky Side

Catnip is a tried and true part of the cat section, but with a well-informed staff and great displays, the category can continue to grow.

Keeping Cats Calm

The key to solving problem behaviors among felines is often a matter of reducing the impact of environmental stress and redirecting the pet’s negative energy.

A Recipe for Success with Pet Treats

Retailers must meet pet owners’ growing demand for healthful ingredients in the treats they feed to their dogs and cats.

Pet Food Evolution

Dog and cat food are the lifeblood of pet specialty stores, providing them with the repeat customers they need to thrive.

Selling Stain & Odor Products

Manufacturers are responding to consumer demand for products that remove, not mask, stains and odors.

Garden Variety

Cat grass gardens can help pet owners entertain and nourish their loved ones.

Pick of the (Cat) Litter

A growing number of cat owners are looking for natural litter products that are sustainably sourced and free of harmful ingredients.

Truth and Transparency in Organics

Increased consumer interest in tracing food to the source is leading pet food manufacturers to provide detailed information regarding the origins of their ingredients—and they expect pet retailers to follow suit.

Pay to Play

A well-chosen and stocked cat toy section can bolster a retailer’s bottom line by helping to drive additional sales.

Learning to Love Litter

Litter products rarely get the attention they deserve; but when employees are properly educated, they can be a great boon to a retailer’s business.

Starting from Scratch

Cat scratchers play an important role in cats' lives, and not surprisingly, this category can be a strong profit generator for retailers.

Feeding Food Sales

Carrying the latest cat diet trends and offering a strong marketing program can help retailers maximize food sales in their cat section.

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.

A Growing Smile

When it comes to dental care, a bit of effort up front goes a long way in preventing problems later on.
