Well as a Pet owner of an aging boy I am most excited about Health Care. Just our last visit getting his senior panel done and all of the other things came to $400 out of pocket. So when we decide to get a new friend he/she will have insurance!

As a SBO I am most excited about the services trend! I have been taking Pet portraits since it was considered silly by most so now that people are starting to realize that our pets are family too, it is becoming increasingly beneficial to my business!
The next trend I am excited to see is the joining of forces. I have made a few meager attempts in Delaware to do just this. I personally feel that, at least, in the Pet Industry one stop "shopping" is huge! The Big Wigs have proven this. So with the ever increasing lease fees and duplicate services provided by SBOs joining together will only benefit those involved.

Glad to a part of this wonderful forum!

Default Question

In complete adherence to the rules and not posting anything about this, I was trying to Pm you sannwood but am not allowed.
Anyway you could get in touch with me about my site as I would like to offer SBOs in the Pet Industry increased direct market traffic to their sites. I have been very successful with my local SB site in becoming 5th on a google search world wide and I do not pay for any advertising. I am confident that I can create a wonderful high ranking directory site. Anyway I know I am not supposed to put this here so if you need to delete me that's fine, I just saw another post you had done titled "New Hot Place For Business Promotion?" and thought maybe you could help me in posting this information properly. Thanks a bunch.

Recently used a very reputable pet care center for "day care" for my two pups and was very happy with the outcome. They both seemed to enjoy the new surroundings and the new friends to play with. This is great when having to be away for a long day, you know that they are being well taken care of.
