The key trends of 2012 within dog food are expected to continue in 2013. The number of dogs increased slightly in 2012, however to a lower level than in 2010. In general, the number of dogs is not growing in Switzerland due to regulations, such as the cost of dog licences, obligatory registration and training obligations.
