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.

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.

Tethering Trends

Pet owners are turning to the collar, leash and harness category for products that keep their dogs close by and safe, while adding a touch of personal style.

Stylish Solutions

Going Places

Setting a Place

Dog owners are paying attention to what their best buddies eat and drink from, seeking out products that are not only attractive but also contribute to pet wellness.

Raw Potential

Playing it Safe

Pet specialty retailers can help keep the fun in summer for pets and owners through safety-focused conversations and products.

A Crush on Plush

A Walk in the Park

Don’t fall behind on the array of products available to keep dog walks efficient, clean, safe and enjoyable.

Human (and Pet) Nature

Trends in natural nutrition continue to follow human food trends, so retailers must be prepared to answer any and all questions regarding their offerings.

Green Pet Products Go Mainstream

Manufacturers of eco-friendly pet products have gained a strong following with conscientious consumers, and retailers must also get on board to remain relevant.
