    Hi everyone!

    I am starting a home based dog training and boarding company next year and am currently building my business plan. I need to show my potential investors actual numerical data that shows the financial growth of this industry. I have been researching various websites for nearly 2 months now and cannot find any listing that relates to pets at all. Even such a common field of work like Veterinary Medicine is not listed as a separate industry on any list I have found.

    Any stats on Pet Care, Pet Services, Vet Services, Dog Training?!!!!! These aren't listed as industries anywhere I've looked. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can get this information??????

    I have been to 2 business counselors who were not able to find anything either.

    here are all the websites I've already been to:
    www.census.gov
    www.business.census.gov (most recent stats: year 2002)
    www.sba.gov/fl/south
    www.sba.gov
    www.business.gov
    www.FedStats.gov
    www.sba.gov/training
