This is a very high homeownership rate. Families and individuals that own their own home are much more likely to have pets and especially dogs. Having one’s own home means they also have a front or backyard for the pets to play. With the more rural parts of Alabama being a great place to raise a dog it is also a wonderful opportunity to open a pet store franchise in 2014, 2015 or beyond.

The county is largely rural, with only 32% of the county classified as urban area. This is partly due to the Talladega National Forest, which occupies roughly one fifth of the county’s land area. The Cahaba River National Wildlife Refuge also takes up a sizeable portion of the county. The Refuge prides itself as a tourist attraction that brings visitors to the area to view the special “Cahaba Lilly,” a flower unique to the area. The Refuge also hosts a variety of social events year round, as well as special hunting and fishing events held to raise money for conservation efforts in the area. Both the Talladega National Forest, and the Cahaba River Refuge offer hiking trails and camp grounds.
The abundance of outdoor activities, along with the high homeownership rate, makes Bibb County a likely hot spot for dogs, and active and messy pups at that! There are only three grooming salons within the county limits, which provides plenty of room for competition in a new Splash and Dash Groomerie and Boutique.
