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.
