THE MARKET 55% of Canadian households have a dog or cat and 19% have either a fish, bird or small animal1. The pet industry in Canada is estimated at $5.8 billion annually with the average annual expenditure per household estimated at $8902. The pet industry has seen robust growth due to the anthropomorphizing of pets (owners treating animals as people) and the continuous seeking of quality products and services for their extended family members3. With over 100,000 copies in print and an online directory, Pet Directions will help you reach your target market more effectively. Cats & Dogs Over 8.5 million cats and 6 million dogs in Canada1 Fish & Birds 12% of Canadian homes have fish and 5% have birds4 Rabbits & Hamsters Can be found in 2% of Canadian homes4 The 1% Club Includes lizards, horses, guinea pigs, snakes, frogs, turtles, ferrets and gerbils4

THE CHALLENGE The number of ways to advertise your pet business are limitless---radio spots, flyers, direct mail, TV, internet, newspapers, coupons---but are they effective? With 55% of Canadians as pet owners, you are wasting 45% of your advertising budget on the wrong market. A cluttered marketplace offers you no guarantee that your ads will reach pet owners amongst the increasing competition. Pet Directions targets specific marketplaces.

Dog Grooming Tips  WHEN SHOULD WE GET OUR NEW PUPPY GROOMED It’s important to introduce your puppy to grooming at an early age - as early as 12 weeks so it becomes a normal part of his/her life and something he/she won’t be afraid of. We suggest that you start to brush your puppy’s hair daily and get him/her used to having his/her paws, nails, face and tail handled. HOW OFTEN SHOULD MY DOG GET GROOMED? It depends on the breed and how you want them to look. If you have a longcoated dog, your dog should be groomed every 4-6 weeks to ensure that his/her hair doesn’t get matted or tangled. If you have a short-coated dog, they can be groomed every 6-8 weeks. Dogs that are groomed on a regular basis tend to have healthier skin and their coat is in tip top condition. DOES A SHORT-HAIRED DOG NEED TO BE GROOMED? Even if your dog has short hair - like a Lab - they still need to have a bath, have their coat blown and brushed out to remove dead hair, and they still need their ears cleaned and nails trimmed. If your dog suffers from dry or itchy skin, or allergies, groomers have professional products that can be used based on your dog’s needs. WHAT CAN I DO FOR MY DOG IN BETWEEN GROOMS? The most important thing is that your dog needs to be brushed. If you bath your dog at home, it’s important to remember that you must brush/comb out the entire coat to remove all tangles/mats before and after the bath; otherwise, the tangles/mats will become tighter and harder to work out. It’s also important that when you towel dry your dog, you pat your dog down as opposed to rubbing the towel all over your dog - rubbing may cause mats to form. HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE MY DOG’S NAILS TRIMMED? It’s recommended that dogs get their nails trimmed every 4-6 weeks. A dog that constantly walks on hard surfaces like concrete will naturally wear down his/her nails and may never need to have his/her nails trimmed. Unattended nails, over time, may grow long enough to cause the entire tendon and bone structure of the foot and pastern to break down. The longer you wait to have the nails cut, the longer the vein or the “quick” inside the nail grows, making it harder to keep the nail short. On smaller dogs, the nail and dew claws tend to grow in a circle and if they are not trimmed they will continue to grow into the foot pad causing puncture wounds, which are very painful and prone to infections.
