Why the pet industry

JOIN THE BEST OPPORTUNITY IN THE BOOMING PET INDUSTRY

The pet industry is booming, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down. This $63 billion industry has experienced an impressive 98% increase in pet services spending from 2013 to 2015, and it encompasses almost 84 million dogs in North America alone. In fact, 57% of all Canadian households own at least one pet. Growth in this sector, not surprisingly, has coincided with a significant national increase in what pet parents spend on their pets. According to the BLS, the growing demand for pet care services, including dog trainers, groomers, pet sitters, kennel attendants, and caretakers in shelters and rescue leagues is expected to continue going forward.

In fact, Entrepreneur Magazine listed ‘6 Reasons You Can’t Go Wrong with the Pet Care Industry’:

  •  It’s recession-proof
  • It’s predictable
  • There is no need to educate the customer
  • The industry benefits from the Kinderschema
  • Good margins
