Cultivating Sales

Consumer demand for natural catnip and cat grass products from trusted sources is driving manufacturers to respond with innovative, quality goods.

More Than Skin Deep

Natural grooming products are growing in popularity as pet parents take a closer look at what goes into the products they buy for their companions.

Clipper Consideration

When combing through the range of clippers available, groomers can ensure they choose the right one by examining their individual preferences, as well as the practical requirements they will have for the tool.

Ferret Fare

With so many ferret foods available, only retailers who stay informed on brands and ingredients will be able to advise owners on the best diet for their pets.

Catering to Conures

With their big, playful personalities, conures can make an excellent pet for both experienced and first-time bird owners.

Feeding Time

By providing a reliable and comprehensive supply of frozen and live food options, retailers can build sales and become an indispensable resource for their customers.

Fully Furnished

When facing low margins on live animals and cages, retailers can invest in a creative stock of cage furniture to help turn a profit.

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.

Just for Fun

With this selection of high-quality toys made for chasing, chewing and more, retailers can help customers keep their pets active and entertained.

Inside Job

When pet owners get the urge to groom their pets themselves, they will need the right tools and perhaps some guidance to get started.

The Scoop on Litter

With more cat litter options available than ever before, it’s up to retailers to help customers find the right product for their feline friends.

The Spice of Life

Cutting-edge nutritional supplements now appearing in the market hold remarkable promise for pets and retailers alike.

In Case of Emergency

Bird owners need to be equipped with both the right first-aid tools and an understanding of when and how to use them in order to deal with emergencies quickly and effectively.

A Prince of a Pet

While not all bullfrogs make for perfectly dreamy pets, some species are positively charming and easy to keep.

Staying Clean and Going Green

Once a niche category, green cleaning products are taking over retail shelf space as shoppers increasingly look for safe, effective, natural solutions to pet-related messes.

Unleashing Category Sales

Dog collars, leashes and harnesses are essentials, bringing high margins to specialty pet retailers and traffic through their doors.

Plush Gets Tough

Pet owners may have once hesitated to purchase plush toys for their dogs, but today there is no reason to hold back, as manufacturers of these toys have focused on adding strength to the fun.

Selling Stain & Odor Products

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

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.

Dietary Essentials

Ensuring that pet birds are receiving appropriate amounts of calcium, phosphorus and vitamin D is key to maintaining their health.
