The humble dog chew is undergoing an evolution. Retailers and manufacturers
weigh in on these changes and escalating consumer demand.
“The Quirky Pet has seen steady growth, year by year, largely driven by our
focus on the ‘dead animal parts’ integrated into our distinctly quirky shop. We
are small, at 700 square feet, and don’t sell kibble, so chews are our market focus. We offer a much wider selection than the big box in town. For this reason,
our customers have become regulars for these items, and the average Quirky
Pet shopper buys more than one type of part.”—CINDRA CONISON, owner of
The Quirky Pet in Montpelier, Vt.
“Now more than ever, pets are family, and just as consumers are increasingly aware of smart
food choices, and reading ingredient labels, they’re also investing time to research treats and
chews for their pets. It’s no longer enough for these products to merely taste good; consumers
want to know they are feeding their pets the best possible ingredients that will support long-term health.”—DAVID RIZZO, directorofoperationsfor Zuke’sin Durango, Colo.
