I'm looking for some market research on pet owners and their spending habits.
For example, try a search like this one, limited to the last ten years, in those databases. Some of the articles that might be of use to you include “Despite Downturn, U.S. Pet Owners Still Spend”, “Consumers continue to pamper their pets”, “Specialty Pet Shops Fetch Nice Profits”, or “Top six trends in pet spending”.
If you don’t find what you need here, try other business and general interest databases like ProQuest Central or Business and Company Resource Center (use the same sorts of search words as we used before).
Let me know if I can be of any assistance.
