Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) November 23, 2012
According to the American Pet Products Association, who gathered statistics from various market research sources, Americans will have spent an estimated $52.87 billion on their pets by the year’s end.
That figure is further broken down by categories - food being the greatest expenditure at nearly $21 billion and pet supplies coming in second at $12.5 billion.
“We pamper our dogs. We bring them wherever we go. We surprise them with gifts and holiday presents,” said Brandy Arnold, Content Editor for Dogington Post. “And, as the statistics prove, we don’t think twice about spending money on them. Dogington Post wanted to recognize the companies that bring us the best products for our dogs…the companies that care about our pets as much as we do.”
Dogington Post announces their first annual Dogington Post Top Dog Awards to honor the best of the best in multiple categories of products for dogs.
Three companies or products will be nominated in each of several categories including Best Canned Food, Best Dry Food, Best Organic Food, Best Raw Food, Best Treat, Best National Pet Store, Best Toy, Best Dog Trainer, Best Rescue, and more.
Nominees will be announced on the Dogington Post and via Facebook and Twitter. Dog loving fans and readers of the site will be encouraged to vote for their choice. Winners will be chosen by combination of fan votes and committee and announced in January, 2013.
