Black Friday Gifts for Pets


More than ever before, that Christmas gift under the tree or Hanukah present might be for barking, purring or even squawking family members. Just over half all of all dogs, and nearly 40 percent of pet cats receive a holiday gift, according to American Pet Product’s Association 2013-2014 National Pet Owners Survey. Birds even get into the act, as 25 percent receive a holiday gift.

Here are some new products, and gift ideas, many seen at the Backer Total Pet Expo, held in Rosement, IL
