Emerging Trends in the Growing Dog Day Care Industry

Dog eating treats at day care

As an undeniable part of millions of families and hearts, dogs have succeeded in claiming not just our free time and affection, but also a significant share of our paychecks. The U.S. pet day care market recorded a valuation of $1.12 billion in 2021 and has a predicted CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 6.8% from 2022-2030. More than just a static reflection of numbers, this growth is a manifest testament to how pet care dynamics are rapidly evolving.

The Growing Trend of Dog Day Care

Over recent years, dog day care has emerged as the most preferred service, capturing more than a 40% share of the U.S. Dog Day Care market in 2021. The reasons motivating this trend are quite interesting – pet owners returning to the office post the COVID-19 era, the surge in pet adoption among millennials and Gen Z, and the amplification of technology to increase awareness and adoption of pet services. This rising trend reflects a shifting perspective towards pet care, recognizing it not just as a mere activity, but as an essential aspect of modern life.

Factors Driving the Growth of the Dog Day Care Industry

The rising pet population, coupled with pet humanization and increased expenditure, has acted as a massive driver for the growth of the Dog Day Care industry. Initiatives taken by market players are also leading to this upward trend. One primary factor is the high adoption rate of dogs, significantly contributing to the growth of the dog day care and lodging segments as 54% of US households have a dog. In addition, more pet parents are acknowledging the health benefits of adding four-legged companions to their families.

According to the Human Animal Bond Research Initiative Foundation (HABRI), positive human-animal interaction appears to be related to changes in physiological variables both in humans and animals, particularly dogs. “HAI has been shown to influence levels of blood pressure, heart rate, hormones correlated with well-being including cortisol, oxytocin, b-endorphin, prolactin, phenylacetic acid and dopamine.”

Challenges in the Dog Day Care Industry

However, with these promising developments emerging, so too do new challenges.
