SmarterPaw Expands Brand Offering with Distribution Partner

It has partnered with Burlo Pet Services.




(PRESS RELEASE) LENEXA, KS – Kansas-based SmarterPaw announces the expansion of its distribution partnership with Burlo Pet Services, Inc. Burlo will now offer award-winning Doggijuana, a SmarterPaw Brand, award-winning dog toys with JuanaNip (100% catnip) to retailers in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Chicagoland (Illinois).

The Doggijuana product line will be available to retailers in these areas starting May 1, 2022. This expansion follows on the successful heels of Doggijuana’s sister brand Meowijuana, which continues to build success at retail in cat toys, catnip blends, cat treats and more.

Doggijuana’s innovative line of dog toys encourages and foster a dog’s instinct to experience the world through their noses with catnip, Catnip is a natural way to encourage dogs to play, and Doggijuana’s proprietary Juananip (100% Catnip) ups the attractor-factor of toys and encourages dogs to play longer through scent. Whether inside the Doggijuana toy or sprinkled on top of a dog’s food, Juananip produces a calming effect that helps dogs chill – naturally.

“After great success with Burlo and our Meowijuana line of cat treats, cat toys, and catnip, we are thrilled to grow our partnership with Burlo by adding our Doggijuana dog toy product line to the mix,” says Geralynn Cada Ragan of Smarter Paw, LLC. “Our brand and company as a whole has been extremely fortunate in connecting with passionate pet-parents in the US and abroad and this resounding reception would not be possible without strong partnerships like we have established with Burlo Pet Services.”

“We are excited to add Doggijuana to our growing brand portfolio and offer our retail customers new innovation that is fun and fresh,” states Gene Large, co-owner of Burlo Pet Services. “It will be a great expansion and complement to what we’ve achieved with Meowijuana in Burlo’s distribution region for four years.”
