The Growing Pet Industry

Did you know that caring for pets could be lucrative?

Over 84 million U.S. households own one or more pets and the demand for specialized pet care services out paces the supply of professionally trained providers.*

  • In 2017, Americans spent over $69 billion on their pets – more than what they spend on movies, video games and listening to recorded music combined.*
  • In 2018 this number is projected to grow to over $72 billion.*
  • By 2020, the U.S. Pet Industry is expected to reach $96 billion** with dog walking services expected to exceed $1 billion.***

This demand is projected to increase every year as pet owners find themselves working longer hours, traveling more for business and personal reasons, looking for alternatives to crowded kennels and boarding facilities, independent sitters, online directories, friends and family, and wanting the absolute best for their furry family members.

This is a great time to be in the pet industry, specifically dog walking!
