(PRESS RELEASE) Independent retailers in North Carolina have a new distributor to call if they’re interested in stocking Charlee Bear natural dog treats and Hound & Gatos natural pet food. That’s because Gott Pet Products, a family-owned company committed to the health and happiness of pets, recently added Nature’s Rules to its growing distributor network.

“Speaking for the entire company, we’re extremely excited to expand our presence in North Carolina,” comments Patrick McGarry, general manager of Gott Pet Products. “Much like Nature’s Rules, we are committed to providing the healthiest, most natural products for pets and look forward to our new partnership with this quality-driven distributor.”

Charlee Bear treats are precisely what consumers are looking for — a family of great-tasting snacks that pet parents can feel good about feeding their dogs. They’re prepared with the finest ingredients and offered in a variety of fun and delicious flavors to appeal to even the pickiest of pups. In response to the overwhelming popularity of Charlee Bear Original Crunch and Grain Free Crunch, the company recently introduced two additional lines of natural dog treats — Grain Free Meaty Bites, the first raw, freeze dried meat treats infused with real fruits and vegetables you can see, and Bearnola Bites, crunchy granola clusters bursting with aroma and taste thanks to wholesome ingredients like cranberries, peanut butter, honey and oats.

Hound & Gatos offers a full line of natural, animal protein-powered recipes to meet every pet’s dietary needs. In addition to a complete wet dog and cat line, the brand recently introduced a new line of dry food for both dogs and cats. Prepared without peas, lentils, chickpeas, or white potatoes, the meat-first, limited ingredient food features a medley of superfoods, like blueberries, cranberries, broccoli and dandelion greens. Three grain free varieties for cats and three grain free varieties for dogs can be found on shelves. Additionally, two options made with the finest ancient grains, such as spelt, quinoa and oats, are available for dogs.

To become a Hound & Gatos and Charlee Bear retailer, dealers located in North Carolina are invited to contact their Nature’s Rules representative at (336) 427-2526 or email info@naturesrules.com.

Sure Petcare Showcases SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder Connect at Feline Practitioners Conference

Connected feeder helps owners monitor pet food consumption and feeding patterns.

(PRESS RELEASE) Sure Petcare has announced that it will be showcasing the newest addition to its connected product range, the SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder Connect, at the 2019 American Association of Feline Practitioners Conference, held in San Francisco from Oct. 31-Nov. 3. The conference will focus on complex disease management, particularly exploring feline comorbidities. The SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder Connect, which will be on display at booth 24, can detect small changes in cat feeding habits, such as loss of appetite, which can be an indicator of feline health.

The SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder Connect records the time and weight of food consumed by a pet each time they eat from the feeder, reporting it directly to the SURE PETCARE app. Over time, this enables pet owners to build a comprehensive understanding of their pet’s unique feeding patterns, making it easier for them to spot changes in their pet’s health and well-being earlier than they may otherwise have been able to do so.

The SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder Connect also enables owners to personalize their pet’s feeding regime to suit their pet’s unique needs, whether that is to help address a specific health concern, such as obesity, or to establish a consistent and appropriate feeding routine which can benefit all pets. Using the SURE PETCARE app, pet owners can specify the weight of a food serving for their pet. Once completed, every time they add food to the bowl, the integrated scales will weigh the food and LEDs on the front of the feeder will indicate when the correct portion weight has been reached.

Once connected to the SURE PETCARE app via the SURE PETCARE Hub (sold separately) owners can:

  • Monitor food consumption: See how much, how often and for how long their pet eats, to get a comprehensive view of their pet’s eating patterns.
  • Receive detailed insights: Notice changes in feeding behavior which may be early indicators of illness or behavioral issues.
  • Set and manage accurate food portions: Set the portion size and type of food to be served for up to two types of food (e.g., wet and dry). Once portion sizes have been set up in the app, the product’s integrated scales weigh food as it is added to the bowl.
  • Gain peace of mind: Check when their pet was last fed and how much food is left in their bowl. This provides great peace of mind when owners are away from home.
  • Connect with family and friends: Share access to the app with friends and family, which is ideal for pet sitters and day-to-day care.
  • Use with existing SURE PETCARE “Connect” products: Each Hub can connect up to 10 devices within the same household, enabling pet owners to manage all of their SURE PETCARE “Connect” products from the same app account. The Hub also is compatible with the SUREFLAP Microchip Pet Door Connect and SUREFLAP Microchip Cat Door Connect.

Ken Lambrecht, DVM, medical director, West Towne Veterinary Center and Pets Reducing for Rescues in Madison, WI, said, “Feline weight management is a critical element to ensure a happy, healthy cat. In my veterinary practice and through my current scientific research, we have found improved compliance and detection by using innovative technology in pet home-health feeding and monitoring. The SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder Connect is a game-changing feeder, as it allows pet owners to control and measure food consumption, manage accurate portion size and provide detailed analysis of eating behavior. Changes in feeding behavior can be early indicators of illness, pain and behavioral issues.”

(PRESS RELEASE) Los Angeles-based Bow Wow Dog Houses has announced that it has updated its Palos Verdes dog house, which is part of the company’s Signature Series of dog homes. The Palos Verdes house was originally designed using natural cedar inserts for the siding, but now can be constructed with Dura Temp siding materials that allow for a variety of paint options.

Styled in glassy midcentury modern, this home features a corner window for natural light and adds to the open feel of the floor plan. The Palos Verdes also features a side swinging door for ease of cleaning and added ventilation, and a swing open vent above the door. The spacious style of home measures 37 by 67 inches, with 41 inches in height in the interior. Flooring options for the house includes, linoleum, hardwood and standard exterior grade plywood that is painted or stained to the desired effect.

Bow Wow Dog Houses welcomes customers to use the design options for the home that best suits their particular region and that will ensure their pet has maximum comfort.

“The Palos Verdes style doghouse is popular with our customers, mainly because of all of the natural light it allows into the house,” said Larry Hobbs, president and CEO of Bow Wow Dog Houses. “Dogs love to lie in the sun, but sometimes they want to be in their cave, too. This style provides the best of both worlds to make for a very happy dog.”

Bow Wow Dog Houses is a product line of parent company Brent-Wood Products, a family-owned and operated company with three generations of woodworking and design experience established in 1963.
