To Fill Up Summer Boarding-Grooming, Feature Your Luxury Dog Supplies

Ah, summer — peak time for local pet owners to go on vacation, need boarding and day care, get their pets groomed and make a choice on WHO to call for these services.

Chances are, you have some tough competition in your area, between other small-business grooming, daycare and boarding facilities; the local veterinary practice that offers some of all of these services; and even big box stores or franchises that offer similar services.

How will your business stand out?

Make sure local pet owners know about your luxury dog supplies and environment along with your excellent staff, all designed to give dogs the finest care. Here are some tips to help you do this.



How to choose the best dog kennel designs: Stainless or Starlite

If you’re about to upgrade or renovate your dog kennel area — or build an entirely new facility — you may be wondering if stainless steel cages and kennel panels are the way to go. After all, stainless is sleek and timeless.

However, you’ve also seen colorful dog cage panels (our Starlite line) and you’ve thought, now THAT would be fun.

Let’s explore your decision on whether to use stainless steel or Starlite for your dog kennel designs.



Colorful dog and cat kennel designs make you a stand out

While many factors come into play when dog and cat owners consider which kennel is best for boarding their precious pets — a high-quality environment tops the list.

A clean, modern, well-organized and attractive facility projects quality and stands out from other local options in a huge way. The color scheme, equipment choices and attention to cleanliness all demonstrate your business’s commitment to pet comfort and customer satisfaction.

You may not have considered this, but color can set the stage for a positive first impression of your facility the minute pet owners walk in the door, whether they see a joyful yellow, healing green, tranquil blue, secure beige or happy orange.

That’s why Direct Animal Products recently expanded its colors for dog and cat kennel designs.



Luxury dog kennel equipment is the key to a standout boarding facility

Pet owner spending is staggering. The American Pet Products Association reported that pet spending is higher than ever, with a forecast of $58.5 Billion in spending for 2014. The report stated, “Pet services showed the largest percentage of growth last year, rising 6.1 percent from 2012, putting spending in that category at $4.41 billion. With grooming, training, boarding and other services on the rise, it’s estimated for highest category growth again over the next year at $4.73 billion in spending.”

Wow, that’s a lot of boarding and daycare clients! Just think — how many of those dollars will head your way.

Last year we helped 536 customers open beautiful new luxury dog boarding and daycare facilities using our stainless steel cages, kennels, grooming bath tubs and other equipment that offer exceptional durability, sanitation and great looks.

While there’s room for everyone to succeed…
