The UK pet market

Great Britain is a nation of animal enthusiasts. We are willing to spend huge amounts of money on their furry friends. From exotic fish and tortoises to rabbits, birds and man’s best friend – the dog – almost half of all households have at least one pet. In one survey, 51% of dog owners said they would spend more on their pet’s healthcare than their own!

The growing trend for dog grooming and luxury treats which is fuelling the pet market. New popular products include healthy gourmet treats and even beer for dogs! The cost of pet pampering is also growing as more products and services are introduced.

What UK pet owners spend

On average, UK pet owners spend over £470 a year on their animal friends. Collectively, Brits are spending a whopping £7.16 billion annually on pet supplies and services. Over its lifetime, a small dog is expected to cost £18,224 while a cat sets owners back £12,322. But many feel this is a small price to pay for the happiness pets bring to the family.

We have a range of established pet shops and pet supply stores for sale across the UK. We also have commercial units which can be transformed into your ideal pet business.
