Did you know that more than 62% of Australian households own a pet? The most popular pets are dogs (38%) followed by cats (29%). In addition, a further 59% of people who do not currently own a pet say that they would like to own one in the near future.
The number of pet dogs in Australia is increasing. In 2009 there were 3.4 million pet dogs and in 2018 that figure is 4.8 million pet dogs. Clearly a growth industry with loads of upside potential.
According to the Australian Pet Industry, Australians spend about $7 billion per year on their furry family members. The RSPCA also estimates that the average dog costs approximately $13,000 over the course of its lifetime. Two thirds of households with dogs or cats regards their furry companions as part of the family. So, as you can see the pet care industry is a growth industry in Australia and K9 Klub Doggy Daycare is poised to take advantage of this trend.
