Pet Care Franchise & Business Opportunities

Pet Care Industry

General Industry

This industry encompasses businesses that offer grooming, boarding, and training services for household pets, primarily canine and feline pets. There are few established institutions that offer grooming, boarding, and training services at the same capacity — more likely than not, they tend to emphasize one area over the other. Businesses in this industry include but are not limited to animal shelters, obedience training institutions, grooming, and pet boarding. However, this industry excludes operators that sell pet products or provide veterinary services. Three of the biggest contenders in this market are Aussie Pet Mobile Inc., Camp Bow Wow, and Best Friends Pet Care Inc, but none of them own more than 5% of the market share, resulting in a highly fragmented market.

Industry Trends

The landscape of the retail industry has changed dramatically over the past decade, with the decline of brick and mortar establishments and the rise of e-commerce and online shopping. The closure of major department stores has only accelerated this major transformation of the retail industry, which has increased even more with the shutdown brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Operators in this industry will have to revamp their business model in order to attract a steady stream of customers, therefore competing with the convenience of online models.

Pet Care Industry Trends

The pandemic has had a double edged effect on the present and future state of the industry as a whole. While pet ownership has increased during the pandemic, more and more pet owners stay at home for work, leading to a dramatic decline in the need for pet boarding services. Furthermore, the pandemic has decreased disposable income spending, leading to less money being spent on non essential activities like pet grooming. However, the most significant impact on the pet care industry was the closing of all non essential businesses during lockdown in the beginning stages of the pandemic — since most operators in this industry tend to be small and local businesses, many have had to close down permanently. However, those that have been able to stay open are expected to experience a rebound thanks to increases in the volume of pet ownership and the return of travel.
