The Pet Care Industry Brings in Billions
TheStreet.com – July 27, 2011
“The pet industry is enjoying growth at a time many other industries are stagnant or shrinking due to the economy,” begins this article from the financial website TheStreet.com. The article proceeds to interview the leaders of several pioneering pet business concepts, including the CEO of Zoom Room Dog Training.
