Trending Products Your Pet Business Can Market to Dog Owners
Dogs mean everything to their owners, and each dog owner shows it a little differently. Whether that is by pampering their pet, taking them out frequently, or spending extra time with them. Find products to sell that will help dog owners show love to their pets. Lately, there have been many trending products that improve the quality of life (or fun in life) of dogs. These are some of the products that conscientious owners will want for their dogs.
Dog treats are a must for every dog owner to train and reward their dogs. According to Bored Cesar, finding the right treat is key. Lately, organic treats have been making a rise because of their many benefits. They offer stronger immunity for dogs and lead to better digestion.
To designate a dog treat or food as organic, it goes through a similar process that human food goes through to be considered organic. For the plant ingredients, the plants must be grown without artificial or harmful fertilizers, without pesticides, without genetic modification, and far away from sewage sludge. For animal ingredients to be considered organic, the animals must have access to the outdoors, eat organic feed, and not be treated with antibiotics or hormones. Organic treats are usually free from artificial sweeteners, colors, and preservatives.
Is it any wonder that food that goes under such scrutiny is good for dogs? Your customers may be looking for this exact product. Consider finding a variety of organic treats for your customers.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical found in cannabis. However, it doesn’t cause the same “high” as cannabis. There is some evidence that CBD can be beneficial for your health. According to Hemmfy, studies show that CBD can be safely used on dogs in some forms as well. The most common form is CBD oil.
CBD is a relatively new market that has only recently arisen since cannabis has been legalized in some locations. Because of that, there is only rudimentary testing, though it is promising. There are some who suggest that CBD may have anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anti-anxiety, and anti-nausea effects. It may also help to control seizures, stimulate appetite, and have some cardiac benefits as well.
Due to the experimental nature of CBD, it is best to start out small when using CBD to help pets. When you look for a CBD product to sell, make sure to look out for delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, and other suspicious ingredients that could hurt dogs. Buyers of CBD products should also be encouraged to start with small doses, and carefully monitor their dogs until they understand the reaction that they could have.
