best affiliate programs for pets headerWe more or less all love pets and there is a huge market when it comes to products for pets.

So if you are an affiliate marketer in the pet niche, you can potentially make huge profits – if you find the right affiliate programs.

To make it easy for you, I have put together a list of the 13 best affiliate programs for pets.

I have chosen many different types of programs so no matter what your specific angle in the pet niche is, you will find some great affiliate options on the list below.

All of them are, of course, 100% free to join and it is easy to get started with all of them as well.

Can you make money with pet affiliate programs?

Before getting to the list of some awesome pet affiliate programs, let’s first look into the potential of the niche.

Just by pure logic, it is possible to figure out that a lot of people are interested in products for pets and it is therefore potentially a profitable niche as an affiliate marketer.

But it can also be good to look at a bit of data to know more about the potential before getting involved in a niche and if it is an increasing or decreasing market.

And let me just reveal right away that the spending on pet products is huge.

In the US alone, the spending on pet products in 2018 was $72.56 billion according to APPA.

People spend A LOT of money on pet products.

And in 2019 it was around $75.38 billion.

Again, I want to emphasize that this is the spending in the US alone. As an affiliate, you can have the whole world as your market and do not have to only target one country which makes the earning potential even bigger.

Also, as you can see in the image above, the spendings are on many different types of products so there are also many different angles you can focus on.

If we look worldwide, it will show the tendencies are the same.

According to RateCity, Australia, for example, has a yearly growth of 7.4% in the pet industry.

Spendings are increasing all over the world.

And to give a few more examples, the growth in Argentina is 9%, in Canada it is 3.7%, in China it is 27%, in the UK 2.6%, In Russia 9.3%, and in India it is 7.4%.

So the spending on pets is not only already huge in most of the world – the spendings are also increasing.

As an affiliate that is a good sign as it means more opportunities. To get the most out of this opportunity, you, first of all, need to find the right affiliate programs.

How to choose the right affiliate programs for you?

There are really A LOT of affiliate options in the pet niche.

On the list below, I have chosen programs from a wide range of products and services to show just how many different directions it is possible to go into the pet niche.

When looking at choosing pet affiliate programs, you, first of all, need to look at the angle you are focusing on and the products and services relevant to this.

So choose the ones that fit your angle the best. And let yourself be inspired by some of the different programs – maybe they can give you new ideas.

Secondly, you need to notice the cookie time as that it important for your profit potential. A short cookie time means people have to make the decision faster for you to earn commissions.

On the list below I will show the cookie time for each program so you can easily get an overview of this.

Finally, you need to look at the quality of the pet product and service. As affiliates, we need to make sure only to promote products that will truly help our audience.

So make sure it really is relevant to your audience as this will build up trust and people will then likely buy through your affiliate links several times and a following like this can really help grow your business over time.
