2016 Global Pet Expo Pet Product Wrap Up
Roughly, the trade show is about the size of 13 football fields… which means there’s a lot of ground to cover and a seemingly endless array of pet products to browse.
I wanted to wrap up this year’s show with a few amazing finds that grabbed my attention as I made my way from one end of the convention center (and back again… about 30 times!).
I can haz this Pipolli Dog Teepee from Piggy & Polly?
Have Corgi, will travel, in Sturdi Products’ XXL SturdiBag. Corgi not included.
If your cat suffers from Whisker Stress or Fatigue, the Dr. Catsby Feline Remedies Bowl will be a dinner game changer.
Oh la la! All the way from France, Simply Fido’s Trendy Tub Dog and Cat Houses are handcrafted and made with recycled industrial tubs.
Gone fishin’… with Tall Tails Plush Stuffed Fish.
Boo the Pomeranian has his own line of adorable toys, clothes and pillows – brought to you by the ambassadors of squee, Jakks Pacific.
A bit of pee can tell you a lot about your dog’s health. Petnostics’ at-home urine test was a standout for its ease of use and affordability.
And speaking about pee, this is the perfect product for cats who live to rave. Turn up the techno and fill your kitty litter tray with Neon Litter.
A way-back throwback, I picked this one out for the old school pet parents. I love these Trapper Dog Hats from Woolrich. The Woolrich collection includes a hearty array of woodsy classics, brought to you by PM&J.
Pop a pup tent with P.L.A.Y.’s new Scout collection. This outdoor line comes with a dog tent, chill pad, travel bowl, toys and training pouch. This begs the age-old question: If you’re fashionable in the forest… how will anyone know how fabulously you camp?
It was awesome to see Love Thy Beast with a new collection of pet carriers. I don’t go anywhere without the original tote, but the ab-fab Shearling Pet Tote may get me to change it up.
