When I talk about Camp Canine using the words "pet service business", most people are slightly confused. In this series of blog posts, I am going to walk through the different services we offer to provide clarity. Hopefully this will help you, whether you are local or are exploring pet services for your pet in another state- or country!
You want to what?
In the summer of 2012 my husband (then boyfriend) came to me and told me he wanted to start a pet service business using his business background. I had NO idea what that meant! And I had NO idea that was even a thing. But 6 years later, let me tell you the pet care industry is a thing and it's a big thing!
What is the Pet Care Industry?
The Pet Care industry is a variety of products and services designed to keep pets alive, healthy, and happy. Products and services vary from food and homemade treats to veterinary services to training to day care to specialty clothing.
More than half of US households at least one pet and the presence of animals has been documented to significantly benefit pet owners. Science is continually revealing to us the many benefits that pet ownership has for pet owners. The bond has been shown to help alleviate depression symptoms, anxiety, PTSD symptoms, to name a few benefits. It has been documented that being in the presence of animals can lower blood pressure.
Because pet ownership increases the quality of life for pet owners, a process called humanization has happened recently in which pets are being treated more like humans. Puppy cupcakes, anyone?!
The pet industry is vast and offers products and services to care for all pets: dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, farm animals (as pets). The diversity of pet ownership is growing and we find more unique pet ownership of varying species. The purpose of the pet industry is to ensure that your pet is happy and healthy, which in turn increases the bond you have with your pet. And as I mentioned, that increases your overall well-being in addition to your pet's. Win-win!
I often get asked "what does a pet service business do?" The answer to that question varies because the pet industry is so vast. From canine chiropractors to unique pet toy design to custom tank designs for reptiles, you will find a variety of services offered by each pet service business.
Camp Canine offers three separate services: Doggy Day Camp, Overnight Boarding, and Pet Sitting. In the next few weeks, you will find a detailed blog post about each service of Camp Canine, but here is a general overview and simple description of each service:
