Who isn’t obsessed with pets nowadays?

If there is one thing in the world that most people can agree about, is that pets are pretty cute! From dogs to cats, from birds to hamsters, those who own a pet know how it feels to love it unconditionally. Even those who don’t adore their new couch covered in dog fur will have their hearts melted by a pair of puppy eyes and a wagging tail.

Animals will fit into any lifestyle, and anyone can find their perfect best friend. Some families are looking for golden retrievers to play with their kids, and some single bachelors are looking

Whether you are a dog person or a cat person, it’s a fact that pet owners will do almost anything for their furry friends, and that includes buying all sorts of toys and accessories.

90% of people with pets consider their animals a part of the family, and this isn’t limited to traditional pets like cats and dogs, but also includes birds, fishes, reptiles and even tarantulas! Fact is, no matter how scary or venomous our little pet is, we still love it with our whole hearts!

According to a study done in 2020, 70% of the U.S. households, or about 90.5 million families, own a pet.


It’s a growing a market

Because so many people love their little friends so much, the pet-related market is constantly growing in revenue and in area. There are so many more kinds and styles of cat towers and dog beds than there were 20 years ago, and every day more private label businesses are created with the intention of providing all the tools to pamper and spoil your animal, from dog wine to catnip infusers, from automatic tennis ball throwers to fur accessories.

For the first time in history, young adults are more interested in having dogs and cats than having kids, and the first step to a serious millennial relationship is not getting married or moving in together, but choosing the perfect dog bed for your pet.

In some cities around the world, like San Francisco, the population of dogs have surpassed the population of kids by the thousands! Young couples don’t look for districts with good schools anymore, instead, they look for the best dog parks in their area. Because of this, there are opportunities for new private label businesses to emerge in the market, such as doggy daycare – something that would sound insane a couple of decades ago -, homemade organic pet treats, and dog grooming.

On average, the annual costs to get and maintain a dog start at 1.000€, but can go up to 10.000€, for the fancier ones. In 2019, U.S. pet owners spent around 95.7 million dollars on their pets, and research shows that this number has a tendency to grow more and more each year.

What pets need

Just like a person, pets have many needs, and there are endless toys and accessories available. From the most obvious ones, like collars and leashes, to the most specific ones, like dog toothbrushes or cat hammocks, pet owners will do everything they can to provide the best lifestyle for their pets.

Here are some of the basic needs your pets could have:

  • Collars and leashes
  • Personalized name tags
  • Water and food bowls
  • Pet bed
  • Cat towers
  • Grooming brushes
  • Food and supplements
  • Treats and bones
  • Toys
  • Catnip
  • Hygiene products
  • Toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • Nail trimmers
