With Thanksgiving right around the corner and Christmas fast approaching, holiday shopping season has officially arrived. Coinciding with that, of course, is Black Friday and Cyber Monday, two of the biggest shopping days of the year. And while most gifts will be purchased for family and friends, a majority of pet-owning Americans will spend an average of $46 on their four-legged companions, according to an Associated Press poll.
While pet present giving may seem a bit extreme, the recent poll demonstrates that the dog has evolved from being man's best friend to a key member of the household. In some cases, dogs will receive more than one present, making out better than some human members of the family. In fact, some pet owners will actually purchase gifts on behalf of their dogs! Besides, who wouldn't want a new Christmas sweater from Fido?
The poll reveals that food and treats will be what most consumers purchase for their pets. So, if you happen to be on the hunt for something for your four-legged companion, make sure to visit one of our online retail stores. Most of them have already begun their holiday discounts, and we guarantee your pooch will love our Peakwaggers jerky snacks and trail food.
