Social isolating is a whole lot better with pets and according to APPA’s 2019-2020 National Pet Owners Survey, over half of pet owners report benefits of pet ownership as companionship and that pets help relieve stress. Below are some products manufactured by APPA members that help keep pets entertained, active and healthy while at-home during quarantine.  

Some businesses have been unavailable to pet owners including many groomers across the nation. Mom’s Goop Six Piece Groomer’s Starter Kit comes with the fixings for a clean dog which include degreaser, shampoo, conditioner, rubber grooming brush, skid proof mat and quick drying towel.
