According to the American Pet Products Association, 62 percent of U.S. households own a pet which equates to 72.9 million homes. That’s a huge segment of the American population! So using pet promotional products is a viable consideration for many businesses.
However, there are several safety considerations when choosing pet promotional items which are discussed in this video:
Here’s a quick recap of tips for promotional pet products:
No Stress Balls. Please, people, stress balls are NOT toys and should not be given to animals ever! As a side note, they shouldn’t be given to children as toys either. Click here to read more about safety considerations when giving promotions to children.
- Budget Extra for Bandanas. Like people, dogs come in all sizes. So if you’re planning to giveaway custom dog bandanas, realize that you’ll need to provide for both large and small dogs. This does increase your cost. Click here for more information on USA-made custom dog bandanas (small dog size available on special order)
- Buy for Owners, Not for Pets. Dogs and cats will never buy from you. Only their owners will. So keep owner convenience and interests uppermost in mind when selecting products. See our collection of USA-made pet promotions and union made pet products at USAandUnionMadePromoShop.com
- Keep ‘Em Separated. So many items, particularly food, can easily be mistaken as being for pets if not clearly indicated otherwise. Make sure you separate what is for humans and what is for pets when distributing.
