Posted on January 6, 2022 at 2:33 pm

Recently, we have noticed a large variety of pet cameras have been added to the market! But are these worth the cost and what do they do?

Pet cameras are simply what the name says, they are a camera that allows you to watch your pet. But, not only do they allow you to watch your pet, some cameras allow you to speak to your pet and dispense treats. This is an amazing tool to use when you are going out for the day but what to keep an eye on and check what they are doing. Some cameras also have a function where it will notify you on your phone if your pet is making a lot of noise which could signify they are upset.

We do believe that pet cameras are worth the cost. They are best to be used with dogs and cats but can be used for other pets as well. If you want to keep an eye on your pet, these cameras will be amazing for you to invest in.

How do pet wholesalers drive the performance of retailers?

Posted on December 30, 2021 at 4:20 pm

Only recently has the performance of pet supply retailers been studied, and one thing that becomes increasingly clear is that research on this topic is scarce. One notable exception was a 1994 study that came up with findings regarding factors affecting retail sales in pet stores. It was found that the presence and performance of competitors and customer motivation were positively related to sales at a pet store while the number of competitor outlets within a 3-mile radius negatively affected sales revenue. These findings suggest that there are many factors influencing retail performance; it’s something we will get back to later. However, another question remains: how can you drive your own business performance and why are innovative wholesalers always going to help?

Well, firstly, you need high-quality products that meet your customers’ needs. Whether you specialize in a particular area of pet products or accessories or focus on a type of pet like dogs, cats, reptiles, or fish, you need the best quality products to meet your customers’ needs. Wholesalers need to be forward-thinking to ensure the new product lineups they bring to the table are a good fit for UK retailers. But they also need to understand the current market and what it wants, as well as where that market is going.

This means working closely with pet suppliers to find out everything you can about them and their products: what’s new, what’s hot right now, where is your product line headed next? This relationship will help ensure that your business stays on top of emerging trends and ahead of the competition! It helps create a win-win situation for both parties involved. Sales and marketing director at Pet Supermarket UK, Sarah McCann commented:

“Working with pet suppliers to explore new concepts and continuous improvement across our product range is a crucial part of what we do.”

This doesn’t just allow the wholesaler access to new products that could potentially boost sales; it also means an inside track on how retailers can really wow their customers next time they walk in. What’s more, regular meetings and updates ensure the wholesaler knows about everything going on in order to come up with even better ideas moving forward! This is especially important when it comes to seasonal trends, which will always affect buying habits. In these instances, your wholesale partner becomes your best resource for upcoming insights into what your customers want from you and your brands.

Pet wholesalers will always help drive retail growth, however, there’s so much a pet retailer can do to maximize performance and ensure they remain at the top of their customer’s minds for pet goods. By staying abreast of the latest trends and buying accordingly, you will ensure that your business stays on top. You also need to be sure that you are paying attention to your specific market and how they want their shopping experience delivered. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking everyone wants a big-box store; some people like small boutique style shops while some would rather head online and buy from home and avoid the time and effort of going out.

Treats For Fish

Posted on October 16, 2020 at 6:57 pm

Yes, you heard me right… you can buy treats for your fish. You should buy treats for your fish. They like to be treated just like our other pets. But this is not well known. So what treats can we buy for our fish?

One of the cheapest options is cucumber or courgette. These are a firm favourite in most fish tanks. Giving them a healthy treat does no harm. You should however invest in a screw-cumber as this allows the cucumber or courgette to sink to the bottom of your tank. When preparing these treats ensure you peel the skin off and this can be tough for them to get through.

Another option is purchasing algae wafers. These are perfect for any bottom feeder fish. They love eating algae, and these little wafers will offer them some extra as a treat.

Just remember, any food or treat given should be removed after 1 hour if uneaten.

Using a Directory to Source Wholesale Pet Supplies

Posted on May 6, 2020 at 1:56 pm

The pet industry is booming and new businesses are setting up in this sector all the time. More businesses means more suppliers needed – businesses such as retailers all need to be able to put products on their shelves, have enough variety for their customers and keep costs reasonable. Where possible, pet business owners tend to buy in wholesale pet supplies to keep their shelves stocked and make sure they can offer quality products, in high enough quantities, and at prices that they can afford.  

The main challenge that businesses face is finding reliable suppliers who can offer an ongoing supply service. Wholesalers can be a good answer to this problem, as they offer pet products in bulk so that retailers can buy them at discounted rates, in larger quantities. Often, there will be discounts for larger numbers bought, so if you need the volume and you need to ensure cost savings, buying wholesale can be an excellent solution. But where do you find these wholesalers, and how do you know they’ll be right for you as a specialist retailer? Using a pet business directory is a great step to take, where wholesalers will be listed out along with the types of products they supply and additional details such as where they’re based.

Wholesale pet supplies: finding the right wholesaler

When you find the right wholesaler, your life as a pet business owner becomes increasingly more simple. You will be able to establish a more reliable supply chain, and know that you’ll be able to get the pet products that you need, when you need them. Using a directory will be one of the best options for this, so you can see the different wholesalers listed out and select the ones that might be right for you. Once you’ve located the wholesaler in the directory, it’s time to make contact and have a chat to see if you might be able to work together. People in the pet industry who have similar interests and know the industry inside out will often be able to have very productive first conversations, and you’ll definitely get a feel for whether they might be the right supplier for you.

The advantages of using a specialist pet trade directory to find your next wholesale

These are some of the key reasons why you should consider using a pet trade directory to find pet supplies:

  • They care about their reputation. Wholesalers will have to have been checked before being entered into the directory and may even have paid for the listing, showing they care about their business.
  • A wide choice of suppliers. A directory will give you access to lots of contacts in the pet industry, all in one single place. It’s a very useful resource.
  • Better value for money. You’ll know that you’re making contact with people who understand your needs and will supply quality products. By buying in bulk from a pet trade wholesaler, you can also save a great deal of money in the long run.

How to introduce your dog to your baby

Posted on April 6, 2020 at 9:25 pm

Ideally, your dog will already be relaxed and happy about being stroked everywhere on their body. However, if your dog gets overly excited when stroked, then you’ll get to slowly work on this with some gentle handling exercises once they are calm and quiet. You may want to keep your dog away for the first week or so, especially if they seem too excited and you have to think about the safety of your newborn. That said, if your

If your dog is sensitive about certain areas being stroked, then you’ll need to be mindful of this when your baby becomes more mobile, as a baby’s enthusiasm for stroking can easily overwhelm a shy dog. Just take your time and always be cautious. You may also want to get the dog used to the sounds of the bay’s toys and allow him or her to smell the blanket the baby is wrapped in, as this will help him or her become more familiar with your son or daughter.
