New Post-Its Handle the Rigors of a Pet Business … and 4 Other Products You Need

Go ahead, stick ’em up.




“Plant” It

Dogs do a number on real grass, so opt for a synthetic lawn at your daycare or boarding facility. Antimicrobial and non-toxic FOREVER LAWN’s K9Grass works indoors and outside, and has knitted backing that allows for 100 percent edge-to-edge drainage. Its no-infill design also prevents waste from building up and keeps the grass cleanable.

$10-$15 per square foot installed

Next-Gen Waste Station

Regular pet waste stations can trigger the gag reflex. PAWPAIL differs by featuring an activated-carbon air filter and vents to minimize odor. The latter also eliminates the need for a liner bag. Designed for outdoor use, the station dispenses PawBags, which break down in the presence of oxygen.

$149 (includes roll of PawBags and air filter)

Stick It

Sticky notes are an essential business tool, and POST-IT offers a version that can stand up to dog slobber and cat hair alike. Made with Dura-Hold paper and adhesive, Extreme Notes work in hot, cold and wet conditions and stick to concrete, wood and tile. They come in orange, green and yellow, with 45 sheets per pad.

$4.99 (three-pack)

Dear Diary

Animal lovers who choose pen and paper over laptop will appreciate “There Are No Ordinary Cats” from COMPENDIUM. The journal features striking artwork by Jen Collins, periodic typeset quotations and 128 lined pages. The softcover book measures 8 by 5 inches.

NASC Media Spotlight

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
