(PRESS RELEASE) SOUTH BURLINGTON, VT — Under the Weather Founder and President Kyla Sternlieb, announced that Under the Weather will introduce three new freeze-dried bland diets enhanced with bone broth at Global Pet Expo 2019.

The new line of three bone broth formulas will join the existing line of six freeze-dried bland diets, which received an Industry Recognition Award by Pet Business magazine in December 2017. In 2018, the company enhanced the award-winning line to include electrolytes to help maintain healthy hydration levels during times of digestive upset, such as vomiting and diarrhea. The addition of bone broth will now add the following benefits: support for joint health, help with liver detoxification, support for digestive health, boost the immune system and provide nutrients for a sick dog.

Under the Weather freeze-dried bland diets offer busy pet parents a convenient, healthy solution to cooking a bland diet. Traditionally, when a vet recommends feeding a bland diet to a dog, it means shopping for ingredients and going home to cook. Under the Weather bland diets eliminate the need for cooking; just add boiling water to rehydrate the freeze-dried ingredients, cool and serve.

Under the Weather bone broth bland diets will include three flavors: Rice, Chicken & Bone Broth; Rice, Hamburger & Bone Broth; and Rice, Bison & Bone Broth. All ingredients are raised or grown in the U.S.A. The premium meats include cage-free white meat chicken and grass-fed bison and beef for the hamburger —all raised without antibiotics or hormones and processed in a USDA human-grade facility. Manufactured in Vermont, these formulas contain no meat by-products, gluten, artificial flavors, dyes or chemicals. Shelf stable for up to three years. With an MSRP of $13.99, each pouch makes 2-4 meals, depending on the size of the dog.

Sternlieb said, “Under the Weather is the leader in the freeze-dried bland diet niche. Last year we enhanced our line with electrolytes, and we’re very excited to be adding the powerful benefits of bone broth. We’re constantly looking for ways to give our pet retailers something new and exciting to offer their pet parent clientele. Now, in addition to the convenience of our freeze-dried bland diets, consumers will gravitate to the addition of bone broth, the benefits of which are widely accepted in human health.”

It has teamed with The Pro Design Group.

(PRESS RELEASE) Los Angeles-based Bow Wow Dog Houses, a leader in eco-friendly dog house manufacturing, has teamed with Southern California-based company, The Pro Design Group. The companies have announced an alternative choice to the metal flashing typically selected as an option for door openings on Bow Wow Dog Houses’ homes.

The new material used for the doghouse entrance is an extruded ABS molding that will cap the framing trim around the door. ABS is an opaque thermoplastic and amorphous polymer. The ABS molding was designed in a joint creative project with The Pro Design Group’s Jake La Dow and the Bow Wow Dog House team. In working together, they created a product that provides a barrier in the door opening frame that is both durable and matches well with the aesthetic values for which Bow Wow Dog Houses is known.

“PDG has established a stellar reputation as a business-to-business leader of commercial manufacturing for its fabrication of thermoformed goods.” said Larry Hobbs, president and CEO of Bow Wow Dog Houses. “Since the front door entrance of a dog house is a common area for dogs to chew — especially puppies — we were motivated to come up with an alternative to metal flashing. We couldn’t be happier with the outstanding results of this collaborative effort.”

“We were delighted to partner with Bow Wow Dog Houses on a project that has such a positive impact for dog owners,” said La Dow, sales manager of The Pro Design Group. “We have wanted to work with the pet industry for a long time, but wanted to find the right partner, ideally Los Angeles-based. Delivering state-of-the-art solutions is what PDG is all about, so teaming-up with Bow Wow to meet a longtime need for pet owners was particularly rewarding for us.”

All Bow Wow Dog Houses can be retrofitted with the new door flashing material and can be ordered through their web site at bowwowdoghouses.com.

DôyenWorld Releases Cat FunBox

It provides a comfort zone for cat and helps to reduce and alleviate stress.

(PRESS RELEASE) Many cat owners know that keeping your feline happy and healthy includes a fun play life; and nobody understands this better than award winning designer, Justice Le, creator and founder of DôyenWorld.

Le fosters several cats so she knows a lot about their uncanny behaviors.

“Not all cats like catnip. Not all cats like treats. Not all cats like the same toys. But what they do love are boxes,” Le explained. “The cats love boxes, but I don’t want to see ugly brown boxes in my house. It made my place looks like I’m moving in or moving out. So I want to design a box that is aesthetically pleasing to compliment the home while providing a safe haven for them to feel calm and content in unfamiliar space.”

DôyenCat FunBox does just that; it provides a comfort zone for cat and helps to reduce and alleviate stress, all while keeping them mentally and physically happy and active — burning off that kitty energy. This is especially important for cat owners who work and are away from home for long periods of time. With the Dôyen Cat FunBox, cat owners can rest assured that their cat is having safe, healthy fun while they are away, and meme creators and cat photographers will love the stand-in cardboard cutout to elevate to the next level of Instagram fames.

It’s wonderful to see DôyenWorld provided a modern twist on traditional cat scratchers by combining the iconic Dôyen Cat shape with décor inspired designs while remaining true to their brand. It is made from pet safe, non-toxic, natural material with an attractive design and sturdy structure that is perfect for a cat’s everyday needs, including scratching and catnapping. FunBox is shipped flat and easy to assemble into a 14-inch cube box. Comes equipped with a long-lasting scratcher board and is available in four themes: Sushi Chef, Ocean Life, Marble, and Wood. Each one offering its own unique playtime fun for cats.
