Parental Guidance

Puppy and kitten products help pet owners care for their new best friends and can help retailers build a bond with customers.

Dog's Delight

Treats aren’t just for spoiling our canine buddies—they’re also used for training, to supplement diets and to support health, resulting in a diverse and profitable category.

Pet Tech Gets Smart

New advances in pet product technology are changing not only how owners interact with companion animals, but also how retailers approach category sales.

It's Dinner Time

Beyond just eating and drinking, pet bowls can offer owners a variety of stylistic, travel and health functions for any need.

Minimal but Mighty

As dog owners become more skeptical about products with long lists of ingredients, they are looking at limited-ingredient formulas and adopting a less-is-more approach to feeding their pets.

Keeping Grain-Free Going

Consumer awareness of grain-free dog foods and treats is high, but this doesn’t mean pet specialty retailers can kick back and let the products sell themselves—retailers must educate, promote and discuss.

Identifying an Opportunity

Pet identification is becoming less noisy, yet more social, as pet parents seek effective solutions that will easily help identify their animals while maximizing safety and comfort.

Accidents Happen

Housetraining problems can ruin the bond between owner and pet, resulting in dogs ending up in shelters or worse; pet specialty retailers can help dogs and their humans stay happily together.

Buying into Freeze-Dried

Pet specialty retailers have dialed into the benefits freeze-dried products offer pets, owners and their stores.

Product Round-Up: Pet Carriers

Whether customers are looking for a way to tote pets along on errand runs or bring them on a cross-country voyage, manufacturers have developed the right carrier for the job.

A Safe Approach to Raw Foods

Manufacturers continue to work hard at mitigating the risks associated with raw diets while retailers educate consumers about safe-handling practices.

Heal the Pet, Educate the Parent
