A Timeline Of Pet Ownership Over The Years
Animals have played an important role in human
life over the years. Throughout history, the role
of animals in society has shifted from dependency
for food, clothing, and transportation to one of
companionship and pleasure.
Prehistoric Times
Middle Ages
Pre-Modern Era
Ancient Civilizations
Modern Era
Pets fulfill several functional roles. But
companionship still forms the primary function of
a pet.
The first domesticated animal was wolf,
predecessor to the modern dog.
Pet keeping, though rising in popularity, was
still considered to be unnatural.
Pet keeping and pet breeding became formalized
and a way of life.
The concept of working dogs and pet ownership
came into practice.
Transition from Owners To Parents
There has been a gradual shift for people from
being pet owners to pet parents. Americans adore
pets and consider them to be members of their
family. In fact, around 80 of parents treat
their pets as children. The highest numbers of
pet parents are Millenials and Baby Boomers, with
the ratio of households with pets being more than
households with kids. From celebrating to their
birthdays to talking to them daily, they treat
pets just like their babies.

and wellbeing of their pets. They also spend a
lot of money on grooming and medical expenses.

Pet food too has experienced a major shift. While
previously, pet food included everything from
kibble to bones to rawhide, presently parents are
becoming more conscious. Concepts such as grain
and gluten-free dog treats, preservatives-free
are penetrating the market. Natural dog treats
are gaining popularity. Parents are switching
over to homemade food and being more conscious
about what theyre feeding their pets. They also
like to dine with their pets.

Pet Insurance

Billion number of insured pets in North America
In the 1960s and 1970s, there werent many
facilities to treat sick pets. However, the
millenials are changing that. The love and
attachment they feel for their pets make them
spend more to keep them healthy and help them

technology, even the pet industry has not been
left behind. Some of the biggest fields which
have been transformed by innovation are food,
lifestyle, and medical care.

The Future Ahead
Pet parenting has come a long way with major
changes shaping it in the last 20-30 years. The
growing emotional bond between parents and their
pets means that it has ceased to be just about
pet satisfaction. Parents have become more
conscious about their pets growing needs which
has enabled them to feel a part of the
satisfaction that their pets feel, creating a
mutual experience. This is only going to grow in
the future.
