Do you have a pet at home? A study conducted by the American Pet Products Association indicated that roughly 67% of American households or 84.9 million homes own a pet. Many pet owners consider their pets to be part of the family and treat them with the same love and respect as they do their fellow humans. With that being said, it’s no surprise that promotional pet products are one of our top picks for 2021/2022 trends.

The pet industry is alive and booming. Pet owners spent an estimated 72.5 billion dollars on their pets in 2018 and that number will likely grow in the current year. Humans look for ways to connect their lives with their pets and will frequently spend more on services such as hotel stays, shopping trips, and more if it means they can take their furry friends with them. With this in mind, maybe it’s time you considered trying promotional pet products for your next event.

Custom printed pet gifts are popular for doggy daycares, pet groomers, boarders, veterinary clinics, animal shelters, rescues, dog walkers, and so much more. But there are ways that you can incorporate pet-friendly giveaways into your marketing even if your business does not cater specifically to animals.

Who Can Use Pet-Friendly Giveaways?

As a pet owner, there have been many times where we have gone through a drive-through with our dog and the attendant gives our furry friend  a little treat. For example, at the pharmacy, at the bank, and at the drive-through coffee shop. While these businesses are not at related specifically to pets, they know that their customers are passionate about their animals and they use that to their advantage.

Think about your business and how it relates to your customer’s everyday life. Are you a large employer or small business? Are you a nonprofit organization? Do you host outdoor events? All of these categories can relate back to your customers’ love for their pets. If you are a car dealership, you could offer your pet-loving customers a branded fleece pet blanket to protect their new car seats. If you host outdoor events such as festivals, 5Ks, or awareness events, you can further connect with your audience by making the event pet-friendly. Manage the mess and the needs of pets at your event by handing out imprinted pet waste baggies and custom collapsible water bowls. There are many ways that you can incorporate pet-friendly giveaways into your business even if it is not directly related to the pet industry.
