Market Outlook/
Competition:
The Pet Sitting and Dog Walking Industry is booming! The most recent data from the American Pet Products Association (APPA) indicates that “pet services, which includes grooming, boarding, walking, training, pet sitting, exercise and yard services for our pampered pets, saw the largest growth again this year and more than tripled the growth percentage of any other category.” In fact, spending on pet services reflected an 11.8 percent growth rate from 2014 to 2015, with pet owners spending $5.41 billion on pet-related services. Pet owners today understand the benefits of having their pets taken care of in the comfort of their home when the only reasonable alternative is expensive boarding. Considering the comfort of the pet, regular feeding and exercise schedules, avoiding disease exposure and home security/safety when someone is regularly at the home while the homeowner is on vacation or away for extended hours motivate the pet owner to seek a personal pet service.
Growth & Expansion:
The potential for growth is unlimited. This is a turn-key operation that has experienced strong growth year after year. Hiring other "sitters" to handle more clients in additional neighborhoods with promotional marketing would boost the client base. This concept could be easily franchised.
