|Pet Pampering Business is Booming|
by Sharon Glorsky
It's no secret that Americans love their pets. In fact, we spend
billions of dollars every year on feeding, grooming, and vet
visits, as well as toys and other pampering supplies. Chances
are your town even has some kind of gourmet retail outlet for dog
and cat treats.
It's a fact that the pet industry is booming and shows no signs
of slowing down. In fact, it has actually become stylish for
people to pamper their pets with playthings, carriers, treats,
and more. As you walk down the street or watch celebrities on
TV, you'll see more and more people who love to adorn their
beloved dogs or cats with shiny accessories or outlandish
Not everyone wants to carry their dog in their purse the way
Paris Hilton has been doing, but more and more of us are
discovering that our pets need plenty of love and attention, just
like kids and adults require.
If you're not ready to spoil your pet with lavish gifts and
gourmet treats just yet, start small. For example, when
traveling with your cat, buy something better than your typical
carrier. When shopping for pet transportation, look at the
products carefully, and ask yourself if you would be comfortable
riding in that for so many hours. If the answer is no, your cat
probably won't be that comfy either.
When taking Fido for a walk, think about that collar and leash.
Don't you think it would hurt to wear that tight collar,
especially with the tension of a leash? Instead, why not invest
just a little bit more in a harness-style restraint that allows
even distribution of that pressure. And if you really love your
dog, buy one that sparkles or shows a bit of personality.
As any pet lover knows, dogs, cats, and other animals all have a
distinct personality, just as we do. We all want our cars,
homes, clothing, and accessories to display a bit about who we
are and what we like, and our pets deserve the same.
