- Pet parents spent over $9 billion in pet related services (boarding, grooming, insurance, training, pet sitting and dog walking)
- Pet spending increased during the past year, with 35% of pet owners stating they spent more on their pet/pet supplies – including food, wellness-related products, and other pet care items – in the last 12 months than in the preceding year
