What Do You Sell In A Pet Shop?

The pet industry is no doubt profitable.

The market is estimated to be worth $358 Billion by the end of 2028.

It’s a great signal for anyone trying to start a pet shop. However, it also means you will have a lot of competition from both newcomers & established businesses.

That’s why selling typical pet products (which others are selling as well) might wash you out of the business pretty soon. After all, you can’t compete with the cheap prices & frequent discount offers of pet supply giants like Petco or PetSmart. 

To be honest, it’s only frustrating if you don’t know how to pick the right products. All you have to do is be smart while researching for the right products. And, the customers will choose you over the competitors.

However, to pick the ideal product, you have to keep three things in mind. While you are examining a product, see whether it has any of these three characteristics. If yes, you might want to reconsider your decision. Take a look.

Is It A One-Time Purchase?

Reportedly, Pet supply giant Chewy earns 85% of its monthly revenue through subscriptions.

It means they have sold a product that needs monthly refills. Usually, it’s highly profitable to keep such products in your store. The price per item might be low, but you get a customer for life as long as they like your business’s vibe.

And, most of the time, they end up buying other products from your store as well. So, considering long-term profit & growth, you should include pet items that need frequent refills.

For example, we wouldn’t suggest selling beds or blankets for dogs. You can sell them if you are targeting that niche. Otherwise, it’s the wrong product for a start-up.

Try including products like organic pet food, homemade treats, shampoos, or bathing kits for specific breeds etc such products replenish & need to be purchased again & again. You can easily build a strong customer base by offering good quality/premium products.

How Do You Manage A Pet Shop?

Is The Product Too Expensive To Manufacture?

Try to filter out “too expensive” products when you are first starting. People usually don’t want to make a big purchase from a new business. They would want to try cheaper items first to understand where you stand as a seller. Also, such items are ‘too costly” to manufacture as well. That’s why you can’t enjoy a decent profit margin leading to a flop product.

For example, quality dog beds at least cost $20 to manufacture and then ship to your store. But you can sell it at $40 max, right? You see, that’s not a pretty impressive profit margin. Considering you have to carry out other business expenses & taxes, the profit gets even lower. The only way to make enough money is by doubling the price. But how many people will buy dog beds at such unrealistic prices?

They will just switch to online marketplaces like Amazon, where such beds are selling for less than $25. That’s why you find a product that’s not too expensive to manufacture. Dog bandanas are a good example. These products cost $1 for you to buy. You can just customize the colors & design. You can sell them at a premium price (for as much as $12 to $15). That’s an item you can make a lot of money with.

Will It Require A High Shipping Cost?

Sellers often ignores shipping costs. But if you intend to expand your pet store to an online store, you have to consider shipping fees.

Reportedly, 48% of online buyers don’t “check out” due to shipping charges.

You can increase your customers by offering free shipping. But to allow that, the product needs to be lightweight enough to begin with. Because heavy & fragile items will charge you a decent amount for shipping.

There’s no way you can cut the shipping charge if you pay so much yourself. That’s why choose lightweight products that don’t need “too much” care while shipping. As a beginner, you can attract more people by adding the “free shipping” labels on some products.

What Do Pet Owners Buy Most?

Now that you have some idea of an ideal product, here is a list for you. It includes product categories that pet owners buy the most (consistently).

1. Pet Food

There are almost 400 Million pets in the U.S.A. right now.

No doubt, the pet food industry is worth billions of dollars. Only the organic food market is around $22B as we are writing this article. The number is only going to increase since millennials and Gen Z are more conscious about food ingredients than the older generation. The future generation is going to be even more tough to impress.

There’s always scope for food brands that have mostly natural & highly nutritious ingredients. Currently, there are 650 pet food brands for you to select. We are sure there are some high-quality organic brands you can pick and add to your store.

2. Organic Treats

Pet owners love giving treats to their pets as a reward. It makes them feel less guilty when they can’t share a delicious food/drink with their furry friends. But just like food, pet owners also look for organic options when it comes to treats. People always treat their pets like a family member. And, you can’t pick just anything off the market when it involves their health.

That’s why the homemade treat industry is super hot right now. People prefer ordering treats that are 100% organic with zero side effects. If you want to set yourself apart from the competition, try adding such organic treats to your shelves. The best part is the pricing. People won’t mind paying double the price of a regular treat if they are sure it’s more healthy.

3. Grooming Essentials

Nail clippers, shampoos, conditioners, toothbrushes, etc. fall into the grooming category. You can never go wrong with grooming essentials. No matter what, people will always need these items to maintain their pets. There’s no scope for going “unique” with such day-to-day items. People prefer affordable prices & good quality. Try to get a variety of bathing shampoos & conditioners that suit specific dog or cat breeds.

From our experience, we know some dogs, like doodles, can be too sensitive. The owners might want a shampoo that’s not too harsh for their dog’s sensitive skin. You can explore section 7 and try selling grooming products for sensitive pets.

4. Vitamins & Supplements

30% of the monthly pet budget is restricted for vet visits & check-ups. And 40% is spent on food & supplements. So, if we consider a $1200 annual budget for a pet, that would mean almost $500 for vet care & supplements only. And we are talking about only one pet.

 Plus, high-quality supplements will always be in demand. Once you secure a customer, there’s a high chance he will visit your store regularly for refills. The most common supplements pet owners look for include vitamins A, C, D, E, omega-3&6, CBD (for anxiety), etc. If you want to be unique from other stores selling pet supplements, focus on products without artificial sweeteners. You can charge higher & will enjoy a loyal customer base who only buy from you.

Dog Poop Bags

5. Dog Poop Bags

 If you don’t want to go with food or supplements, the next most frequently sold item is poop bags. They are lightweight & cheap. You won’t have to pay much to ship them directly from China. You can offer a subscription feature.

If a customer agrees, you can send poop bags to him every week or month according to their preferences. That’s an awesome way to get a recurring customer and secure monthly sales.

To boost your sales even more, try to be a little creative. We mean, those boring green disposable bags are found everywhere. Find a manufacturer who will make poop bags in a different color for your business.

Gen Z customers really value cute packaging and eye-catching colors for every pet product. This small change will allow you to charge higher than other stores.

6. Pet Toys

Pets, especially dogs, are needy. They like having attention all the time. That’s why pet parents rely on toys to distract them just for a while.

The pet toy industry is worth $8B. And it has seen a constant growth of 6.7% since 2012.

The most in-demand toys are chuck-it balls, chewy wishbones, fetching toys, comfy stuffed toys etc. It can be a bit difficult to choose what toys you should go with. We suggest you niche down your products to toys for exotic animals.

7. Collars & Leashes

The dog leash & collar market is estimated to be worth around $219 million by the end of 2028.

It is continuously growing, considering the rise in pet adoption each year. That means the product is highly in demand. But the problem is, such products don’t replenish. However, it’s still a good option to have in your store. Plus, the product is super lightweight (it won’t require much space to store).

To be slightly unique, offer customized & trendy collars instead of the typical ones. By “trendy,” we mean the boho patterns printed on the leash. You could come up with something more unique and charge extra for that.

Top 15 Best-Selling Pet Products 2024

We have seen the evergreen products in this niche. But what about the trending products? We mean products that have been in huge demand during 2023. Adding trendy items to your store will boost your profitability.

The average price of this bed is around $45 to $50.

2. Slow Feeder Dog Bowl

Slow feeder bowls are working miracles for obese pets. Unlike a regular bowl, the food in a slow feeder is hard to reach. Due to the puzzle-shaped barriers, it’s harder for pets to eat large chunks of food at once. It reduces bloating & gas problems in the stomach. Pet owners are absolutely loving the outcomes.

The average price is $8 to $11.

3. Automatic Ball Launcher

The average price for such a toy machine is around $129.

The average price is $25. It is a huge hit among busy pet parents.

5. Anxiety Pills

Well, anxiety pills like CBD have always been used in the pet industry. It helps to calm down street animals. If someone has recently rescued a pet, the vet might suggest giving anxiety pills to calm the pet’s nerves.

6. Pet Camera

People can check on their pets through home security cameras. Still, the demand for pet security cameras is over the roof. It’s because pet owners want to see more closely what their pet is up to. The camera can be rotated to 360 degrees. The expensive ones even dispense treats for the pets from time to time. Overall, it’s a cool product.

7. Scratcher

Who doesn’t love a good scratch? Pet scratchers allow your pets to scratch against. They simply rub themselves against the scratching post and feel good. It’s not that expensive (only $16). But you can also offer aesthetically pleasing scratching posts that are a bit pricey.

8. Pet-Friendly Floor Cleaner

Most cleaning products contain ammonia. It’s a toxic chemical for both humans and pets. However, the pets are in more danger since they lay on the floor. That’s why conscious pet owners are opting for pet-friendly cleaning products. Eco-me & Aunt Fannie’s cleaning brand is non-toxic & pet-safe. You can include home cleaning products from such brands in your store.

9. Odor Remover

Pets can smell bad, no kidding. And it doesn’t always mean they are dirty. That’s when a pet odor-removing spray can save the day. They come in lots of fragrances & are affordable as well. Your customers will definitely consider buying these products during their monthly pet supply shopping.
