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.

The Sky's the Limit for Raw Diets

With more dog owners dialing into the benefits of feeding their pets raw foods, the freeze-dried category is taking off, fueled by these products’ nutritional value, ease-of-use and portability.

The Doze Zone

The dog bed category has its challenges, but it still offers pet specialty retailers a great opportunity to stand out from the crowd, send traffic through their doors and achieve higher register rings.

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.

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.
