Pet Grooming & Boarding in the US

The Pet Grooming and Boarding industry has proven to be one of the few established industries to post consistently strong gains over the past decade, nearly doubling in size and growing even amid the recession as consumers purchase a wider array of luxury services for their four-legged companions. The growing industry has benefited from changing consumer attitudes, which increased demand for a variety of new luxury pet services. Over the next five years, this trend is expected to gain further momentum as pet ownership rises and owners use their increasing disposable income on services for their pets. Companion animals, such as cats and dogs, are becoming more popular for single professionals, empty nesters and young couples, and are expected to account for the majority of pet ownership growth.

This industry primarily provides pet care services, such as boarding, grooming and training. This industry includes animal shelters, obedience training services, guard dog training services, pet boarding and animal grooming services. This industry does not include establishments that predominantly retail products, board horses, transport pets nor practice veterinary medicine.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
