10 of the Best Pet Supplies Affiliate Programs 2019

Hello there my pet loving Sea Changers. The sale of all things pets supplies online is a massive industry with so many sub niches, it is literally an animal lover’s paradise. In an effort to assist you as you get started within this niche I am going to give you an insight today into my list of 10 best pet supplies affiliate programs 2019.

As I run through them, I am keeping in mind that this is a huuuuggeee niche so the size and types of affiliate programs within it are practically never ending. So how have I picked my best 10? Well… I really just wanted to give you a good cross section of what is out there so I did some searching around and checked a few out and chose them by looking at:

  • What they offer
  • Commission rates
  • Payment terms
  • Cookie duration
  • Application processes
  • Affiliate/Marketing materials provided

Before we start however, let’s have a look at what I mean by the term pet supplies and how it can be incorporated within an affiliate marketing website…

What are pet supplies?

For the sake of this post, I have assumed that the term pet supplies can apply to effectively anything to do with the keeping, feeding, grooming, playtime or care of pets. These sub niches could incorporate any of the following:

  • Pet food
  • Pet grooming supplies
  • Pet health related products
  • Pet accessories
  • Professionals – groomers, breeders etc.

And of course anything else that you may incorporate when you think of pets.

What can affiliate marketers promote?

There are essentially no real barriers to what affiliate marketers can promote when it comes to your pets. There are however some things to be aware of as you run your eye over affiliate program possibilities that may suit your site. These are:

  1. Pet owners tend to be well versed in the needs of their loved ones – so you need to make sure the products you are promoting are suitable.
  2. Pet owners will not take risks with their animals – so make sure the products you are promoting are safe.
  3. Pet professionals want clear, precise information with features and benefits highlighted.

That said, pet owners will spend money online if it can make their lives easier so as long as you are solving problems, then you are on the right track. And to give you a boost, let’s have a look at 10 programs that I have found below:

Petco

Pet Supplies Affiliate Programs - petco

Let’s start with Petco, a site that encompasses almost everything pets. It has a massive range covering all of the well-known brands as well as “unique and hard to find pet supplies that your visitors can’t find elsewhere”. You can search by either product type or by animal.

Pet Supplies Affiliate Programs - petco stripe

Their entire range is too large to list here but does include:

  • Food – for all animals and diets
  • Treats
  • Care and Health – tick and worm treatments etc.
  • Home living – beds, kennels and so on
  • Collars and jackets
  • Travel requirements
  • Pharmacy – antibiotics, anti-stress and anxiety treatments etc.

This is a great site to link to if your niche is generalized as there is certainly enough there to keep your readers occupied for years. And even if you are working in a narrower field (such as a particular animal breed for example), there is opportunity there for a little cross selling into other pets that your readers may have as well. And with their big brand inventory, you may be able to sway some of those nervous buyers to purchase from you online rather than heading out locally.

Again suitable for both generalised and specific sub niches, its product range matches that of Petco above. Its main point of difference however is for those looking at more water based product categories with a large range of aquarium and pond needs such as fish tanks, lighting and plants.

              Whistle

              8 Electronics Affiliate Programs - whistle

              Whistle is one for the pet owners who have trouble keeping their pets from wandering. They only really provide one product which is an on-collar tracker for your pet.

              8 Electronics Affiliate Programs - whistle functions

              The tracker works essentially like a human sports tracker except for your furry little family member with a good range of collars and colours. The only other point of consideration here for affiliate marketers is the fact that for the product to work, customers will not only need to purchase the tracking unit, but enter into a subscription agreement as well.

              8 Electronics Affiliate Programs - whistle subscription

              Affiliate commissions are paid on the purchase of the tracker unit only and not for ongoing subscriptions.

                Hemp my Pet

                Pet Supplies Affiliate Programs - hemp my pet

                And to finish up, I have added another little off-centre site – but one on a field that is currently booming – centering on the use of CBD related products. Hemp my Pet specialises in organic hemp based products for animals including:

                • Massage oils for horses
                • Dog treats and biscuits
                • Tinctures

                Pet Supplies Affiliate Programs - hemp my pet stripe

                This site is not large but if your site is involved in the pet health niche – especially around the alternative side of these things – then this site might be a good one to promote (possibly in tandem with the Natural Wonder Pets.com site above).

                Amazon associates

                Alternatively, should you wish to set up your site up with a range from a few different brands or companies on the same site then you can set yourself up via Amazon. Amazon provides access to these products and has a fairly good affiliate program as well. So if you wish, join the Amazon Associates program, locate the relevant pet related products within Amazon itself and you can post links on your own site as per below:

                Amazon’s commission rates are nowhere near as high as some of the programs listed above (4 – 7%) however some prefer this avenue due to the sheer amount of traffic and trustworthiness that comes with a company site of this size.

                How to find your own affiliate programs

                As stated earlier, by outlining the sites above I have really just tried to give you a good cross section of the types of sites that are out there by listing the really good ones in each ‘category’. That does not mean that you cannot find affiliate programs that better suit what it is that you are trying to do within this space – especially as I could never even begin to cover every pet type or sub niche in the one post. Luckily for us, there is a simple way to find these programs online.

                All you need to do is enter “affiliate: niche type” into your search engine (substituting ‘niche type‘ for whatever product it is that you are choosing to sell).

                Pet Supplies Affiliate Programs - affiliate pet supplies

                We can even dig a little deeper with a more specific search

                Pet Supplies Affiliate Programs - affiliate horse supplies

                There are pet supply affiliate programs for everything else that we have listed at the top of this page as well – you will just need to have a look around until you find one or two that suit your site. Once you have completed your searches, you can look through and find programs that:

                • Relate to your niche/problems that you are solving.
                • Have quality products – your brand can be severely damaged if you promote poor quality products.
                • Have solid payment and customer service arrangement.
                • Pay decent commissions.
                • Have good testimonials covering commission payouts and quality of product.

                In most cases, you will need to apply for the program before you are allowed to promote their products – don’t take this step lightly or you will be rejected. Affiliate programs will generally want to know:

                • Your website name.
                • Traffic levels.
                • Why you want to join – (so I can make money by selling your horse bridles is unfortunately not generally a good enough answer).
                • How you plan to promote their products.

                Conclusion

                So… There are 10 pet supply affiliate programs to work with in 2019.
