Why the Pet Care Services Industry?
Pet Care Services Are In Demand!
The American Pet Products Association reports that total U.S. pet industry expenditures have increased annually for the last twenty years. Estimated sales in the U.S. market for the subset of grooming and lodging services alone rose in 2014 to $4.73 billion – up from $4.4 billion in 2013! ( This doesn’t even account for doggie day care & obedience training!)
An overall rise in the number of pets in the US, along with increasing spending per pet are the main factors that will contribute to the pet care industry’s growth in the years ahead.
More people are buying more pets than ever, but growth in spending on pet products and services has been spurred on most dramatically by an overall change in attitudes and sentiment toward animals, as the majority of the population now considers their pet to be a member of the family.
Pet owners now purchase holiday & birthday presents, designer clothes & accessories, spa treatments, personal trainers, doggy day care, and luxury accommodations for their pets. This increased personification of pets has resulted in a massive increase in the number of premium products and services available for our pets!
