No Snoozing Here

As dog owners increasingly seek to give their dogs the best possible sleep experience, bedding manufacturers are responding with products even people would like to curl up on.

On the Move

As more pet owners are taking their dogs into the great outdoors, the need for outdoor dog gear continues to rise.

From Tennis Ball to Toy Box

It’s been said that a tired dog is a good dog—and fetch and tug toys play a large role in ensuring dogs are getting enough exercise.

Training Techniques

Offering the right products and advice to help customers be successful in housebreaking their dogs will not only help retail sales, but also ensure that these pets stay in healthy, loving homes.

Goodness to Go

Freeze-dried and dehydrated products provide a convenient way for dog owners to incorporate raw foods into their pet’s diet—at home or on the move—and give pet specialty retailers plentiful options to meet that demand.

Ready for Anything

Whether walking, hiking, training or simply playing, today’s collars, leashes and harnesses are elevating the experience for dog owners and their pets, encouraging and enhancing togetherness.

Room to Grow

Although many dogs have gone grain-free, there are still pet owners who have not yet jumped on board, giving pet specialty retailers plenty of opportunity to tap into this profitable category.

Beacons of Hope

For dog owners who despair of ever getting a handle on the house-training process, pet specialty retailers can be a calming resource for encouragement and solutions.

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.

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.

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.

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.
