pet treats for Christmas

Good news for pet treats bakers

What’s in Santa’s bag? Pet treats! 

Christmas gifts for pets? You bet. The trend is on the rise. Pet treats are top choices!

More and more pet owners count their pets as part of the family and deserving of their own spot under the Christmas tree for presents. Santa poses for photos while dogs sit obediently on his lap, showing him they are nice and not naughty.  Pet stores abound with stocking stuffers for the four-legged shoppers.

An American Pet Products Association poll last year revealed that 53% of dogs and 38% of cats received holiday gifts. This year, dogs, cats, birds, horses and small animals are likely to receive a holiday gift.

Grooming products, designer clothes, and holiday treats for all species, plus special pet-related gifts for the pet lover have been popular gift choices.

The Salem News this month interviewed one pet store owner who said that pet treats sell the best. The owner was quoted as saying that dog cookies in her store were selling for 75 cents each, and treat packages ranged from $5 to $10.

Overall, dog owners spent an average of $11, cat owners $8, and horse owners $33.

If you have a pet bakery business, do your research and see what’s out there. Then, make nicer ones!  Establish a relationship with a small, local pet store and ask if you can sell nicely packaged, healthy “fresh-baked” pet treats for the holidays. Ask if you can set up your table just outside the store (weather permitting) – it’s a definite eye-catching attraction that will draw customers over.

Talk up the store, bring in customers and you will be invited back.
