Dog Population and Dog Owner Trends
Pet owners and the extensive pet industry that they support (everything from veterinarians to pet food to pet toys to pet supplements) have long been a backbone of the American retail landscape. In the all-new report, Dog Population and Dog Owner Trends, Packaged Facts focuses on the population of pet dogs, dog owner demographics, and dog owner psychographics in the U.S. market. The report offers a present-day and historical analysis of dog owners, examining trends pertaining to the segments’ financial, household, regional, ethnic, and generational composition, as well as trends stemming from dog owner attitudes about advertising, the environment, health, and the internet.
