Premiumization of pet services

According to Arushi Thakur, an industry expert at Technavio for pet
research, “High income pet owners are spending lavishly
on premium services for their pets as they consider their pets to be
family members. In 2015, more than USD 60 billion was spent on pets in
the US.” Pet owners are enrolling their pets in pet daycare and lodging
facilities that offer luxury daycare and lodging experience. Such
facilities are designed with spacious private rooms that are climate
controlled and designed with unique layouts. In addition, these
facilities have raised beds with custom memory foam mattress, private
television, fresh treats, bottled water, and plush play areas among
other luxury services.

For instance, the All American Pet Resorts, Fort Myers provides
an all-inclusive upscale luxury dog lodging and daycare resort providing
all-round pet care. They offer dog suites, TV programs, soothing music,
as well as personalized attention from their highly-trained staff. They
also have secure play areas both indoors and outdoors. The outdoor play
area is covered with the help of sunshades that use fans and misters to
keep the air temperature comfortable for pets. Similarly, Kittycare
offers spacious rooms which are air-conditioned
or fan-cooled, have scratch post, toys, and a dedicated and experienced
pet sitter.

Pet daycare and lodging facilities also offer services such as
pawdicure, exercise on treadmills, themed rooms, gourmet bed-time
snacks, massage, and spa treatments for pets. For instance, Underdog
offers special room service menu for pets as well as gourmet
treats for dogs. Paw Print offers luxury accommodations, premium
meals, and gourmet snacks at bedtime.

Emphasis on standards for accreditation

Pet owners are very concerned about their pets well-being and safety.
They seek daycare and lodging facilities that are clean, hygienic,
reputed, and have trained staff. This makes it imperative for pet
daycare and lodging facilities to achieve accredited status for their
staff and facility. There are accreditation associations that pass
approval of pet daycare and lodging facilities based on certain

For instance, in New Zealand, AsureQuality provides approval to pet
daycare and lodging centers that have met the set standards. These
standards are mainly related to facility management and operational
activities. Audits are carried out by independent and impartial
inspectors with no commercial link to the pet daycare and lodging
industry. These inspectors audit the administration, facility design,
pet food preparation, staff health, isolation facilities for cats and
dogs, vaccination protocol for pets, emergency procedures, transportation
of pets, and animal health. They also conduct surprise spot checks. The
approval certification is valid for a period of 12 months. Annual
inspections are also conducted to ensure standards are being maintained
by the pet daycare and lodging facilities.

Similarly, the Pet Care Service Association offers accreditation for pet
services in the US. International Boarding and Pet Services Association
in the US also provides accreditation, training, business resources, and
judicial support for the pet care services industry. “Pet owners gain
confidence when a daycare and lodging facility has been accredited,
which assures them that the facility is meeting the standards set by
these associations,” says Arushi.

Pet service aggregators help pet owners to connect with service

Pet daycare and lodging service providers are posting their profile in
pet-related websites and online communities to attract potential
clients. Pet service aggregators help pet owners by providing
convenience in connecting to a qualified and trained pet daycare and
lodging facility. They also ensure that the service providers are
insured, background checked, bonded with the aggregator, and have
positive reviews. Pet service aggregators also have a backup sitter on

Due to a large network of pet daycare and lodging facilities, pet owners
can be assured to find pet service providers close to their home. For
instance, Find Pet Boarding has listed more than 4,000
daycare and lodging kennels and catteries, dog home daycare and lodging,
and small animal daycare and lodging services in the UK to help pet
owners locate a pet service facility in their vicinity. Fetch! Pet
, a professional pet service, helps pet owners find daycare and
lodging facilities in the US. Pet owners can call, email, or submit an
online request for services and the in-house team helps them find a
suitable pet daycare and lodging facility as per requirement.
