The U.S. pet training services market research report includes a detailed segmentation by pet type, purpose, branches, geography. The US dog training services market is expected to reach over USD 820 million by 2026. The segment is likely to grow due to the high adoption of dogs as pets. The adoption of dogs as pets soared during the COVID pandemic. Northeast and West regions have an increased number of dog training services. PetSmart, Petco, CAMP BOW WOW, and Best Friends are the major vendors offering dog training services in the US. The US cat training services market is likely to grow at a CAGR of approx. 6%, reaching a revenue share of over USD 550 million by 2026. Cats are the second most preferred pets after dogs, and over 35% of people in the US own them as pets. Approx. 1.6 million cats are adopted from shelters each year in the US. Cat training institutes are less than dogs and have a high growth scope as the percentage of people with the cat as a pet is growing. The number of cats adopted from the shelter was similar to dogs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The standard pet market expects to cross over USD 1 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of approx. 6%. In 2020, the revenue share for standard/companion pets accounted for over 79%. South constituted the largest share for standard/companion training services, followed by Midwest and West regions. Labrador, Poodles, and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel are the commonly adopted companion dogs, whereas Maine Coon, Siamese, Ragdoll, and Abyssinian observe high acceptance as pets. Online training and in-house private training witnessed a spike during the pandemic, with people increasingly adopting pets to overcome depression and anxiety. The US service pet training service market is likely to grow at a CAGR of approx. 6%. Service pets are specially trained to aid people suffering from disabilities or anxiety.

The southern region accounted for the largest revenue share for single branch training services, followed by West, Northeast, and Midwest in 2020.

Single branch service vendors offer in-house private training and online line training classes, which are significant factors driving the growth. In 2020, the multiple branch segment constituted over 57% market share. The segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of approx. 6%. South accounts for the largest share, followed by Midwest.
