Polkadog Honors Twenty Years of Sustainability

See them at Global Pet Expo Booth #1229.





(PRESS RELEASE) Polkadog’s kitchen is one of the most trusted pioneers of handmade, healthy, sustainable pet treats. This year, it celebrates twenty years of excellence with two new treats: Cake Batter, launching on National Pet Day (4/11), and Green Monstah, available on Earth Day (4/22), both of which will be online and at brick + mortar locations where Polkadog is sold.

Cake Batter, made from bananas and Boston’s own all-natural Teddie Peanut Butter, joins Polkadog’s catalog of sustainably sourced, limited ingredient treats. Handmade for birthdays, rescue gotcha days, and in fact all the party days, Cake Batter is a soft and chewy treat perfect for any celebration.

“Grab the Crab! Help the Kelp!” Polkadog’s founder Deb Suchman says, when asked about Polkadog’s newest treat and restoration project: Green Monstah. The product is made from green crab and kelp, two local ultra-rich sources of protein and Omega-3s – and these two ingredients are particularly special.

“Finding ways to manage the over-abundance of green crab populations in New England waters is the challenge,” Suchman says. “The reward is the restoration of biodiversity in coastal ecosystems, and the creation of new economic opportunity for local fishers. High-protein kelp, one of the healthiest, richest sources of amino acids, faces increasing stress from warming waters and invasive crab species. New England kelp farming is restoring balance to the natural ecosystems.”

To help retailers promote the new treats, celebrations, sustainability projects and more, Polkadog has created brand new POP signage, endcap designs, shelf talkers and other fun wobblers to capture the excitement of the Polkadog experience.

Polkadog will also be on-site at this year’s Global Pet Expo, taking place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from March 22-24. This premier event is the place for exhibitors to share their newest and most innovative products for pet owners nationwide, and Polkadog’s presence will be represented at Booth #1229 throughout the entire weekend. Additionally, expo-attendees will be able to pre-order both of these new products on site at the event, and will be given a show deal of 10% off for open stock and 15% off new products.

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.
