The Freeze-Dried Advantage

As more dog owners embrace the benefits of freeze-dried products, the category is taking off, affording pet specialty retailers the opportunity to strengthen customer loyalty and profits.

Give It a Dry

Pet owners may not realize the value of quality at-home drying products, so retailers should seize the opportunity to offer both information and a good selection of towels and dryers.

Building a Better Dog Chew

Manufacturers are answering consumer demands for natural chews that are not only healthful, but also entertaining.

Satisfying Cat Treat Cravings

With growing attention on keeping cats happy and healthy, consumers are demanding high-quality treats that also sate the selective feline palate.

Outside the Cage

Whether a retailer caters to pet bird owners or not, failing to provide products for wild bird enthusiasts is a missed profit opportunity.

Hay for Play

While hay should be the main diet for herbivorous small pets, it can also provide enrichment for them and for other burrowing rodents.

Shell Game

Whether in giant form or one of the more moderate sizes, the amiable tortoise can be an enjoyable and rewarding pet.

Awakening Sales

As dog bedding manufacturers devise increasingly sophisticated products, pet specialty retailers should know their customers’ needs and train staff to deliver the best solutions.

Stable Selection

When choosing tables, groomers should invest in products that will be reliable assets to their businesses for years to come.

Pouncing on Toy Sales

Cats are more popular than ever, which means retailers have the chance to drive sales in this historically underserved category by stocking a great toy selection.

Smart Cookies

Natural treats are more numerous than ever, and educated consumers expect the snacks to have many wholesome attributes.

Sale Away

A creative assortment of themed specials can help keep livestock sales brisk, allowing retailers to offer an ever-changing selection of healthy fish.

Hidden Gems

For customers looking to venture off the beaten track in snake ownership, sand and rosy boas can provide an intriguing alternative.

Pocket Pet Playtime

Informing customers about the health benefits of toys for their small animal pets can help retailers spark sales in this fun-filled category.

Social Strategy

Online marketing tools can be invaluable, especially for those savvy retailers who know how to capitalize on the appeal of the live animals in their stores.

Dressing Up Sales

As more dog owners rely on apparel to keep their pets protected from the elements or to outfit them for holiday photos, the clothing category provides retailers with a profit-making opportunity.

A Perfect Match

To succeed in the brushes and combs category, retailers must ensure all their customers go home with just the right tool to suit their needs.

Naturally Nutritious

Consumers want for their pets what they want for themselves: a healthy, natural diet full of nutritional benefits.

Helping The Real Scaredy-Cats

Calming and behavior products can help pet owners keep their cats safe and provide retailers with incremental sales.

More Than Meets the Eye

The complexities of aquarium water quality aren’t clear to the average fishkeeping hobbyist, so retailers need to be a reliable source of information and helpful products.
