Whether you’re a devoted dog dad (or mom), or more of a casual cat custodian, we have some great new products to upgrade you and your pet’s lives. We’ll also look at current trends in the world of pet parenting, including pet tech, pet services, and the great pet food debate. Check out this great infographic for a quick look at the hottest pet trends of 2019.
Outdoor Houses for Dogs and Cats
Technology for Pets
Pet tech is rapidly expanding as more pet parents feel the need to keep an eye on Fido throughout the day. From health and nutrition apps to treat dispensing two-way pet cams, our pets are riding the wave of the future. Heck, I would buy my dog an iPhone if he had thumbs to unlock it.

Innovative Pet Services
Whatever your pet needs, there’s a service industry for it. Doggie daycare, in-home grooming, and veterinary house calls are just a few of the growing services offered to our furry friends in 2019. Whether you want gourmet pet food delivered, a monthly subscription service for toys and treats, or a personal dog walker, you can find exactly what you need to make your life easier and your pet’s life more interesting (and delicious).
Raised Bowls for Dogs
Genetic Testing for Dogs
If you’ve adopted a shelter or rescue dog, you probably wonder just what she is. Companies like Embark will send you a mail-in kit for genetic analysis so that you can finally find out once and for all what your pup’s parentage is. Genetic testing also looks for potential genetic conditions that can affect your dog, giving you and your vet a bigger picture of your dog’s health and wellness and helping you to create better health plans for your furry friend.

Pet Insurance: Is it Worth it?
The short answer is, yes. Pet insurance is widely available, and monthly premiums generally run about $30- $50, depending on your pet’s age, medical history, and other factors. Pet insurance can cover up to 90% of vet visits, medications, and routine and emergency surgeries. If you have an accident-prone dog like mine, pet insurance can save you thousands of dollars a year. Whether your dog is into extreme sports like dock diving or you have a couch potato cat, pet insurance helps you keep them safe and healthy.

Pet Food: The Possibilities are Endless
Gone are the days of Kibbles and Bits and Friskies. More and more people are choosing to feed their pets specialized, human-grade diets, and for good reason- better food has been proven to help your pets live longer, healthier lives. This is really not that surprising- fresh food is more nutritional than highly processed food. Feeding your pets better doesn’t have to break the bank; you can make your own fresh dog food at home using meat, vegetables, and lentils, or try a natural pet food brand like FreshPet- their prepackaged pet foods are surprisingly cost-effective. Consult your veterinarian before making big changes to your pet’s diet to ensure they continue to get all the nutrients they need.

CBD for Pets
One of the fastest growing trends for pet care in 2019 is the use of CBD treats, tinctures, and additives for pets. Essentially, CBD is derived from hemp plants; it’s a natural pain reliever and de-stressor. Available in a variety of forms, CBD can help relieve joint pain for older pets who suffer from arthritis, and help to calm pets who suffer from separation anxiety or other behavioral issues. Because the federal laws surrounding CBD are still a little murky, you’ll need to look for CBD pet supplies either online or at your locally owned pet supply stores. As with any new medication, consult your vet before starting your pet on a CBD supplement.

Pet Friendly Spaces
Don’t want to leave home without your furry friends? Me neither. One of the best emerging trends in the pet industry is the growing number of pet friendly spaces. Hotels, restaurant patios, home and building supply stores, and even some workplaces are opening their doors to pets and the people who love them. With more people considering their pets as part of the family, it’s a natural move to allow pets in places that people frequent the most.
