Dog Walking Services
Higher pet ownership and increased pet spending have largely supported the industry's expansion over the five years to 2018. The industry has been characterized by a changing landscape, with the emergence of several new entrants that offer a technological edge to traditional dog walking services through consumer-friendly mobile applications. Over the five years to 2023, expected stability in the job market and increased working hours will drive greater demand for dog walkers and pet sitting services. As a result, industry revenue is expected to continue its upward trajectory. A further anticipated increase in disposable income will enable more pet owners to afford pet-related services. However, industry profit is expected to decline marginally over the next five years due to the constraints of competitive pricing pressures.
