This is Moira from the Social Care team at Shopify. It’s great to hear you are interested in the dropshipping business model. I'd be more than happy to provide you with further information to get you started and share some resources for pet suppliers in the UK.
The pet supplies market is massive and by carving out a sub-niche for you, an online business could be highly profitable. There are plenty of products to choose from, including toys, treats, grooming and training items, clothing, collars, and more! The great thing about pet supplies is that many of the products are the perfect size, weight, and durability for dropshipping. It’s also a great niche to choose for marketing purposes. Who doesn’t love seeing cute animal photos on social media?
After doing some digging I have found the following UK suppliers that would be suitable for your business below:
If you’re going to dropship and sell pet products online, it’s important to choose a product that’s competitive. Ideally, you’ll want to identify an emerging trend or a new twist on an old favorite in order to carve out your own little segment of the market. Here is a great blog post that analyses the pet product trends in 2021 which can help you find your winning product.
I thought I would also drop you the link to Shopify Compass - Business e-Learning and Training. Not enough people know about it and it's such a good resource for merchants and their business no matter what stage they are at with their store. I’d definitely recommend bookmarking it and checking it out when you have time.
