Dog Days of Summer

  • Jun 3, 2019

Dog Days of Summer have arrived, especially in South Florida.

Peek inside the typical American home and you may see a cat curled up on the couch or a dog chewing a bone. You might even see a chicken scuttling around. Keeping poultry as pets has climbed 23 percent in five years, according to the American Pet Products Association (APPA). Nearly three-quarters (68 percent) of U.S. households, or about 85 million families, own a pet, and about one in 10 own specialty pets, such as poultry or amphibians. When the APPA first began surveying families in 1988, only 56 percent of families owned pets.

Pet ownership is on the rise and so is the amount of money people are spending on their companions. Pet industry spending is predicted to surpass $75 billion this year, according to the APPA, up from $45 billion a decade earlier. By 2025, the global pet care market is projected to reach nearly $203 billion, according to Grand View Research.

Pets take up a good portion of our budgets—and our hearts. They’re called fur babies for a reason. Nearly all (95 percent) of pet owners consider their pets to be part of the family, according to a Harris Poll survey. Not surprisingly, pet owners want to provide the very best for their beloved companions, from nourishing foods to enriching activities.
