Premiumization of pet services

According to Arushi Thakur, an industry expert at Technavio for pet supplies 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 Haven 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 Kennels 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 parameters.

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 providers

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 call.

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 Care, 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.
