Brands: New Brands in Indian Market
The pet industry is looking forward to 35 percent growth over the next few years, with the pet population predicted to grow at 10-15 percent per year. Data reveals the success of many start-ups and many companies are looking to invest in this industry. Now that platform seems to be reliable, foreign brands are also launching select products here.
Nestle launches Purina Supercoat through its Purina Pet Care Pvt. Ltd.
The recent buzz about well-known Swiss FMCG Nestle's launch of a premium dog food through its fully-owned subsidiary Purina Pet Care Pvt. Ltd. (started in the year 2001) has created a buzz among pet owners, whose main options have hitherto been Pedigree and Royal canine.
The company has launched the 'Purina Supercoat' range of dog food, which offers a wholesome combination of high-quality natural ingredients, Nestle said in a statement, 'With the launch of Supercoat in India we kick start our mission to raise the standards for pet nutrition.'
Purina PetCare India MD Varindra Sewak added, 'We will bring our global portfolio to India to cater to these consumers and become a significant player in the rapidly growing pet food category.'
The company said that with an estimated 19 million pets, the domestic pet food industry has a huge potential to grow and is expected to double in size in the next five years. 'With the launch into the Indian market, Nestle Purina PetCare will be investing for the long term and aims to have a robust portfolio of its global brands to meet the needs of pets.'
Earlier this year Land Rover, with its launch of the 'Landy & Rover' campaign, came in with the Land Rover Pet Packs. Pet lovers had been longing for this opportunity for quite some time now. These Pet Packs were introduced at the Chinese New Year and include accessories believed to make life exciting for pets while they are travelling, thus making the life of pet owners easier too. The concept was to initiate holidaying with pets.
The iconic model, Land Rover Discovery, was said to be available with a feature called Rear Height Adjust, which can make life easier for canine companions. The Rear Height Adjust system uses an electronic air suspension that lowers or raises the height of the vehicle, giving enough space to make it easier for smaller or older dogs to climb in, while the Pet Pack guards the boot from wet paws and fur with a waterproof rubber mat or liner tray. The carpet on the boot floor is covered with the rubber mat and the liner tray has a raised lip on three sides to protect the floor and side walls.
Land Rover has had an association with manufacturing pet-friendly accessories so as to assist in comfortable travel for both dog and owner. The British brand, in collaboration with Barbour, recently launched a campaign called 'Landy & Rover', featuring two owned dogs 'Landy' and 'Rover' exhibiting Land Rover pet-friendly accessories.
IKEA's Lurvig Collection for Pets
Last year, Swedish furniture brand IKEA launched its 'Lurvig collection' that included its first pet-friendly furniture designs. Inma Bermudez, a Valencia-based designer in collaboration with IKEA and Veterinarian Barbara Schaefer, promoted this 62-piece collection, taking into account the different behaviour types and habits of the four-legged fury friends. The collection was made available early this year at its Indian outlet in Hyderabad.
The Lurvig Collection provides luxury cushion-beds that fold out to make room for extras! These cushions fit snugly by bed/couch spaces next to the owners. The cushion bed can also be stuffed with the owner's old clothes so that the pet is comforted by the familiar smell! IKEA's trademark Klippan sofa has been modified too, to fold out for pets that love curling up on the sofa with their owners.
The Collection also includes a shallow slow-feed bowl specifically designed for dogs to eat slowly, so they don't gulp down their meal within seconds.
Meanwhile, the cats get scratching mats that can be wrapped around the legs of beds/couches/chairs/tables. Cat homes and cat nooks have been customized to fit into cabinets/book shelves without compromising with the feline need to curl up on something in a corner, in order to comply with their security issues and a desire to be left alone at times!
The Collection also has specially designed play tunnels, cat litter trays, collars, travel baskets, brushes, toys, colourful poo bags, and bag dispensers. 'They [pets] teach us respect, and their love is priceless,' says Bermudez, rightly having the last word.
Pet Boarding: Premium Pet Boarding - now in india
In the midst of the chaos of life, we tend to lose out on moments of happiness, often times we lose hope and we also lose our selves, yet we are not able to realise the same . The ones who do are the ones who have pets.
At the risk of repeating the obvious, pets make our lives better! Pets are like babies that need constant attention and in return, provide us with an abundance of love that fills the gaps of sadness and hopelessness in our being. Every day, we wake up to their smiling faces and loving eyes, and start our day with them before moving on with our lives outside the house. Similar to practicing yoga, starting our day by interacting and doing activities with our pets helps us feel positive and energised throughout the rest of the day. This boost provided by our pets keeps us happy and fit, and should be acknowledged by every pet owner. However, while our pets keep us happy and are themselves no doubt happy around us as well, they still need advanced care every once in a while which can be obtained through pet care centres. This is especially true of times when our pets are left on their own.
One such instance is when the family wishes to travel. Due to various reasons, pets cannot always go along with us when we travel. In such situations, we reach out to family and friends who would take care of our pets in our absence. However, family and friends can only keep our pets for a short while; if gone for a longer period, we will be faced with the problem of providing sustained care and shelter for our pets.
For circumstances like these, there are various centres that provide boarding services and other luxuries for pets in their parent's absence. Below, we bring to you a number of pet boarding destinations where, in cases of emergency, you can leave your pet while you are gone without hesitation. Do not worry; consider a stay in these places to be a well-deserved holiday for your pet.

Waggle based out of Bangalore, Karnataka came into existence with an intention to solve the problem of the lack of safe and loving homes available for pet dogs in scenarios where they have to be left alone for duration of time. The lack of suitable boarding options available for Zoe, their dashing Golden Retriever, to be left at when the owners were travelling caused them to conceive of and initiate Waggle. Waggle aims to provide a platform for dog owners who face similar problems. Dogs are "man's best friend", and many also treat them if they were their own children by many; it can, thus, be a harrowing experience to leave them alone and travel. Their safety and well-being is the primary concern for pet owners. Waggle, thus, offers pet boarding and pet-sitting services to provide optimum care and love for pets in the absence of their parents.

These are just some of the many pet care and boarding facilities that have opened up across India. For the record, according to a research conducted by the Research and Consultancy Enterprise (RACE) of the Institute of Management Technology (IMT), Ghaziabad, there are about 2.2 million dogs in Indian households today, with the population increasing by 26 percent every year. The earning potential of the Indian pet industry is approximately Rs. 350 crores, of which Rs. 250 crores is contributed by the pet food sector and the remaining 100 crores comes from the grooming and pet care sector.
Indian Breeds: Let's Talk Indian Breeds
The human-animal relationship has always been a little hazy in India, where love for animals, especially pets, depends on the animal's breed, its appearance and its 'merits' (does it behave in accordance with its owner's demands or not). Last but not the least, it also depends on the price paid to acquire said pet. The higher the price, the greater the attributions of loyalty and capability to the animal, whether justified or not. Dogs, of course, are the most popular targets in India of all such labels and treatment among all the types of domesticated animals. To break the popular trend of adopting only foreign breeds, we introduce you to Indian breeds.
The Indian Pariah Dog
Considered the oldest dog breed in the world, the Indian Pariah dog came into existence about 15,000 years ago as a result of natural selection, and not intentional breeding by humans. Today, the Indian Pariah is a medium-sized dog with a darker jacket and a coat that comes in a range of dull to ruddy shades. This dog, also called the Pye dog (pye being an Anglo-Indian word from the Hindi pah, meaning 'outsider'), is bred not only in India but also in other regions of South Asia. In India, forest-dwelling tribes mostly rear this breed for specific purposes.
The highly intelligent Indian Pariah is considered a relative of the Australian dingo, another primitive breed that was never reared by humans but evolved on its own. The Indian Pariah looks quite similar to the dingo, and also to the African Basenji and the Podenco Canario. The Indian Pariah dog, known for being territorial as well as protective in nature, is also known to be loyal, social, smart and intelligent. The breed has been accorded recognition by the Primitive and Aboriginal Dog Society (PADS). This naturally advanced breed has a normal life expectancy of around 15 years in human terms.
Several Indian pet food industries also participated in the exhibition such as Agro Food Industries, JS International, MASH International Pvt.Ltd., Superhouse Limited. Swastik Industries, Vinayak International Housewares Pvt. Ltd., Veer metals, Petz Creation, All Season Exports, Ideal Pet Products, Daivies Expo, used the global event to present innovative pet feeding products like pet feeding bowls, pet bedding, automatic feeders, heavy duty holders, etc.
This Indian breed is a hunter known for its loyalty, and was first bred by the royal families of Madurai and Tirunelveli in Chippiparai in Tamil Nadu. This breed was also found in the area around Kerala's Periyar lake, where it hunted wild boar and deer. Chippiparais are believed to have descended from the Saluki or Persian greyhound, another native Asian dog breed. Often compared to the greyhound, their medium-sized streamlined body shows agility and strength and their coat ranges from black to silver grey, fawn and reddish brown, making them suitable for the hot and humid climate of India.
Chippiparais are sighthounds; their eyes are positioned in a way that gives them 270 degree vision, a much greater range than that of most other breeds. Their muscles and bones weigh more than their body fat.
They make for perfect guard dogs, are known to love human company, and hate being secluded. The Chippiparai is loyal to just one master during its entire life. Sadly, this exquisite hunting dog is now close to extinction and unless ethical breeders work hard to preserve the breed, it will soon be relegated to the portals of memory.
The Mudhol Hound
Giving tough competition to the German shepherd, the Mudhol or Caravan Hound originated in Karnataka in southern India. Surprisingly, it is believed to have been first brought to western India by travelers from Arabia and Central Asia during the early twentieth century. A pair of Mudhol Hounds was presented to King George V of England by the king of Mudhol State. Today, the Indian army uses the Mudhol Hound for guarding borders and for surveillance purposes.
The Mudhol Hound has a long elongated skull
with a tapering muzzle which makes it appear quite ferocious. The breed needs consistent exercise and training and, hence, requires a firm trainer but not a harsh or a ruthless one as this breed is also known for its short temperament.
These dogs have stunning speed and stamina and are swift as their body is narrow, reminding us of the Chippiparai. Their coat colour varies, ranging from cream to black, fawn, fallow, red and gray, and occasionally some white. There is a hairier variety of the breed with a feathered look called the Pashmi. This breed is known by many names across various regions, subcultures and groups in the country. The Kennel Club of India recognizes this breed as the Caravan Hound, while the Indian National Kennel Club has categorized it as the Mudhol Hound.
The Rajapalayam or Poligar Hound is an Indian sight hound that was used to hunt wild boar. It is local to the town of Rajapalyam in Tamil Nadu. In the late eighteenth century the Poligar Hound was bred for battle against British cavalrymen. These days, it is used by the Indian armed forces to monitor the Kashmir fringe.
Despite the fact that the Rajapalayam is the most prized Indian hunter and a fantastic guard dog, it is prone to deafness. It is remarkable for being smooth white in shading, and having a trademark pink nose and brilliant eyes. Unfortunately, the Rajapalayam is, by all accounts, headed towards extinction. The Kennel Club of India has launched a 'Save the Rajapalayam' drive to ensure its survival.
The Kanni, meaning 'maiden', is a rare indigenous South Indian hunting dog that descended from the Saluki and is a further extension of the Mudhol Hound. The Kanni is perfect for marking games because it moves soundlessly. Interestingly, this dog used to be given as a gift to a bridegroom by the bride's family. Kanni usually are brown, brindle, cream, or black and tan.
The breed is known for its loyalty. In appearance, they look similar to the smooth-coated Saluki or a Doberman Pinscher, albeit with natural ears and tail. It is not difficult to train them as they are of independent mind and they know exactly what to do!
Sadly, the breed is now extremely rare and on the verge of extinction. Efforts to revive the breed have not been taken up as specimens are few, and there exists little information about them.
Alangu mastiffs are tall and powerful dogs, most often used for guarding or fighting as they are known for their sharp instincts and guarding aptitudes. Also called a Sindh mastiff, they are the successors to the Indian Bulli or mastiffs.
The current version of the breed's birthplace is traced back to the Bhawalpur territory of Punjab, parts of Rajasthan, and the forsaken zone of Kutch. Today, the breed is ordinarily found in two regions of South India - Thanjavur and Trichy. These dogs have intense and erected ears and broad muzzles which are shaded dark.
The Indian Spitz
The Indian Spitz is a small canine breed local to India, introduced by the British who bred them from German Spitz puppies. The Indian Spitz looks like a Pomeranian and is a favoured pooch in urban India, easy to raise in small flats with restricted lodging space.
For the most part, the Indian Spitz is smooth white in colour. Be that as it may, once in a while, you can encounter black and dark brown Indian Spitz pooches as well. Though recognised as a splendid and dynamic breed, it is smaller than the German Spitz and has a lifespan of 10 to 14 human years. All Spitz puppies, including the Norwegian Elkhound and the Samoyed, belong to the same family. However, the Indian Spitz is now recognised as a different breed by the Kennel Club of India.
Indian Gaddi Kutta or Pahari Leopard Hound
The Gaddi Kutta is a Mastiff-type mountain dog native to India, particularly the Himalayan region. Also referred to as the 'Indian Panther Hound', it is claimed that these dogs possess the capability of fighting off snow leopards. Today, this breed is used by Himalayan tribes as shepherds or for the purpose of delivering supplies in difficult terrains where other means of transportation are impossible. Unlike other Indian breeds, the leopard hound is not counted among other domesticated dogs as they abhor strangers. On the other hand, they make great watch guards and guardians of livestock and property.
They are strong, agile, intelligent, loyal and efficient in herding and guarding. But they are also aggressive and stubborn, and not at all recommended to keep as pets.
Gaddis are a muscular breed - large-sized with thick, medium-length coats that normally come in various shades of light brown. They are currently found in India and parts of Pakistan.
Having listed some of the dog breeds native to India as well as studied their traits, it is evident that Indian breeds are equivalent to, if not better than, most foreign breeds for the following reasons:
1. Indian breeds can survive the tropical climate.
2. Almost all Indian breeds are skilled, sturdy and good at hunting, guarding and fighting.
3. They are just as loyal and friendly as foreign breeds.
Himalayan Mastiff or Himalayan Guard Dog
Himalayan mastiffs, as the name suggests, are native to the Himalayan region. They are recognized as Himalayan guard dogs or indigenous Tibetan mastiffs. This is a calm, friendly and lovable dog that likes to please its master, and occasionally enjoys the company of other family members as well.
Himalayan Mastiffs usually have a long, dry, double-coat of solid black, black mixed with yellow/tan, red, dark grey, or grey-black fur. Rare specimens of the breed have mixed coloration, and having white fur coats is not common. Unlike other Indian breeds, they cannot survive warm weather.
Habitually very gentle and calm, Himalayan mastiffs can also be very ferocious. They do not like any companionship with other dogs; To paint you a picture, a full-grown male Himalayan Mastiff is capable of taking down two wolves on its own. They are known to fight to the death. They are the only purebred Indian mastiffs, and have also been listed as endangered species.
Vet Clinics: The Potential of the Pet Care Market
The Better India states, 'with over four million dogs, the Indian pet-care market is pegged at over USD 1.22 billion with an annual growth rate of over 35 percent. The exponential rise of pet ownership in cities like Delhi, Gurgaon, Mumbai and Bengaluru, has ensured that the Indian pet-care industry is the fastest growing pe- care industry globally.'
India, as a developing nation, is looking deeply at the area of animal care via changes in policy and laws. The government also seeks to enhance the imparting of veterinary education and care, and hopes to increase employment in this field.
