Published

on

(Press Release) CHILLIWACK, BC – With consumers increasingly expecting sustainability, transparency and organic ingredients in their pet food and its manufacturing process, Petcurean has rolled out GATHER to pet specialty stores in the U.S. and Canada.  GATHER is a new pet food line crafted from certified, organic, non-GMO and sustainably produced ingredients.  The recipes are blended to provide dogs and cats complete, balanced natural nutrition with premium quality ingredients. 

 When developing GATHER, Petcurean searched found a handful of farmers, growers and fishers who were practicing the responsible and sustainable production of quality natural ingredients. Those who earned Petcurean’s confidence have become the secured sources and trusted partners that supply the premium quality ingredients used in GATHER. Each recipe is free from rendered or genetically engineered ingredients and features a single source, fresh and dehydrated primary protein: 

  • Wild Ocean: The single-source fish protein in Wild Ocean is MSC certified fresh line-caught cod, pulled from the Alaska coast waters. The cod comes from one of the world’s best managed, most sustainable fisheries and is an excellent source of high quality protein, and provides essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Cod is blended with MSC certified krill, peas, lentils, chickpeas, organic flaxseed and other essential ingredients to provide a hearty, healthy meal for adult dogs.
  • Free Acres: The chicken in the delicious Free Acres recipe is sustainably produced, certified organic and free-run. And, it is the single source of poultry protein. Petcurean has included other wholesome foods such as organic peas, lentils, krill, organic flaxseed, blueberries and cranberries to provide dogs and cats with extra nutrition and extraordinary flavours.
  • Endless Valley: Endless Valley’s certified organic pea protein and other pure and natural ingredients are crafted into a vegan certified recipe especially for dogs. A plant-based diet can be a great option for dogs, their humans and the environment, and Endless Valley provides all of the essential amino acids and complementary ingredients that provide complete and balanced nutrition. The Certified Vegan Trademark guarantees that Endless Valley does not contain any animal ingredients or animal by-products, uses no animal ingredient or by-product in the manufacturing process, and has not been tested on animals.

GATHER’s certified organic ingredients meet strict government standards for how foods are grown, handled and processed using organic agricultural methods. Certified organic chicken is raised humanely on certified organic feed with no animal by-products or antibiotics, and access to outdoor, pesticide-free pastures.

To further show Petcurean’s commitment to sustainability, GATHER leverages a USDA certified bio-based packaging to help reduce the product’s environmental impact. By using bags that are one-third plant-based, Petcurean has reduced its use of petroleum-based resources by 30 percent; for every 16-pound bag the company makes, it saves close to a 4-pound bag worth of petroleum-based material.

(PRESS RELEASE)With the new year comes new goals and adventures. So, while you’re working on your personal goals, don’t forget about your four-legged family members. January is National Train Your Dog Month and an excellent opportunity to make a resolution to learn something new with your dog.

Vital Essentials is hosting its first ever “Train Your Dog” Contest on Instagram to help promote the importance of socialization and training for happier, healthier dogs. The contest runs Jan. 13-27. Two winners will be selected from photos posted on Instagram with #TricksforVETreats.

Pet parents can enter our “Train Your Dog” Contest in three easy steps:

  1. Teach your dog a new trick or help them perfect one they already know.
  2. Capture a photo or video of your dog showing off their trick.
  3. Post the photo or video on Instagram with #TricksforVETreats.

All entries will be featured in Vital Essentials Instagram highlights. Winners will be selected on Jan. 31 and will receive a prize pack that includes five Vital Essentials Freeze-Dried Family Size Treats, an $80 value. These newest additions to the Vital Essentials lineup are great for multi-dog families or for sharing on your pup’s play dates.

“Our high value treats are ideally suited for training puppies, teaching new tricks or reinforcing positive behaviors,” commented Melissa Olson, VP marketing and sales. “Because our treats are made from single protein and freeze-dried, their nutritional value is much higher than other treats that are highly processed. Dogs eagerly follow commands to get their Vital Essentials reward!”

National Train Your Dog Month was established in 2010 and is designed to promote the importance and benefits of training dogs. Too many dogs are turned into animal shelters each year for behavior and training issues that could be easily solved with proper socialization and positive training. Most importantly, training your dog is not just beneficial, it’s FUN!

Stopnicki has been in the pet industry for nearly 40 years, specializing in market development for high quality European brands. Having been dedicated to the aquatics segment from the 1990s into the 2000s, he made the switch in 2016 when he introduced the revolutionary My Family Engraving system brand to both the USA and Canadian market place. As the owner of My Family Canada, he is the exclusive Canadian distribution partner for My Family.

Having solidified the My Family distribution network in the U.S., Stopnicki has transitioned out of the market development role with My Family USA. He is now able to focus on bringing his passion for high-end products and unique pet industry marketing expertise by providing access to the lucrative U.S. pet supply industry to a select number of European brands.

The first two brands that Europet will introduce are Croci Spa from Italy and RelaxoPet from Germany.

Europet is the exclusive U.S. distribution partner for Croci Spa, Pet Products from Italy. Croci was founded in Varese in the 1990 thanks to the entrepreneurial intuition of the Croci brothers. The company later gained success in Italy and abroad developing its own high-quality branded products.

Europet is also the exclusive U.S. distribution partner for RelaxoPet, a compact sound module that provides high-frequency vibrations for deep relaxation in dogs, cats, birds and even horses. Invented by Frank Bendix, the RelaxoPet pro Animal relaxation trainer can be used to relieve anxiety-related stress situations in most pets by influencingstress reaction in a subtle and hardly noticeable way — even preventively.
