Petcare - UK - June 2017
“People indulge their pets, including them in celebrations, buying them gifts, stylish accessories and toys. Humanisation of pets is also extending to include fitness monitors that make sure the pet is getting the exercise it needs as well as performance accessories, such as cooling jackets, for active dogs. Plus, in the home, demand for stylish pet beds and houses is growing, as people want their pet accessories to fit with their décor. But today’s time-pressed consumers also want convenience and this is driving demand for automated accessories that can feed or entertain a pet left alone.”
