(PRESS RELEASE) ARLINGTON, TX – Just in time for National Dog Day, Petmate, the pet industry’s leading worldwide provider of fun trusted, quality products to enhance the lives of pets and their families, announces “Charlie” Chernick as the winner of the company’s first-ever search for a CFO – Chief Four-Legged Officer! 

According to her “pawlifications doguments,” Charlie (@puppynamedcharlie) is a five-year-old Doodle rescue, with a passion for traveling with her “momager” and pet parent, Paige Chernick. Paige rescued Charlie when she was just three months old from a puppy mill in Indiana, and Charlie has not taken a day for granted since.  A true New Yorker at heart, Charlie may be a little dog, but she is tough and a real go-getter, especially if a ball is tossed her way.  

“We received thousands of submissions from four-legged friends across the country. Charlie’s personal story truly resonated with our commitment to help build the bonds between pets and their families and we are happy and eager to welcome her aboard,” said Alice Tillett, Petmate’s Chief Executive Officer.  “We’re looking forward to her passionate, playful point of view, however close to the ground that is.” 

As the Chief Four-Legged Officer, Charlie will help lead the Petmate team in the development and testing of new toys and key products to enrich the special bond between pets and pet parents.  She will act as a chief representative of the Petmate brand, providing testimonials and appearances throughout the year. The position comes with $5,000 in take-home pay, among other “bonefits.”  Petmate is also providing a $5,000 donation to the new CFO’s charity of choice: Foster Dogs NYC, a non-profit organization that connects rescue organizations, adopters, fosters and other partners together in a shared mission to help animals in need.

“Rescuing Charlie from her unfortunate and upsetting situation has impacted my life tremendously,” says Paige Chernick. “Foster Dogs NYC shares my passion for providing a better, quality life to dogs in need and I know every dollar they receive in donations goes directly to the effective programs they work so hard to create.”

(PRESS RELEASE) Hikari will unveil a variety of innovative new fish food and reptile food products at Global Pet Expo, booth 1735. Hikari is introducing Hikari Herptile, a line of groundbreaking food products for lizards and other reptiles. The new products include ready-to-use gel items that will entice lizards with their natural food-like texture while providing all of the nutrients and minerals required for optimal health.

All Hikari food products are uniquely created for the specific types of animals for which they are intended. Hikari Herptile features the following supplement-rich, scientifically formulated and lab-verified nutrient blends:

  • LeopaGel. Developed for Leopard Geckos and other insect-eating lizards, LeopaGel offers an appealing live food-like texture.
  • CrestGel. Ideal for the Crested Gecko and other fruit and insect-eating lizards, CrestGel has a natural food-like texture that lizards will happily attack.
  • DragonGel. DragonGel boasts a natural food-like texture that Bearded Dragons and other vegetable-eating lizards will adore.
  • Dragon Delite. This scientifically balanced nutrient mix is ideal for adult Bearded Dragons over 8 inches, and other vegetable and insect-eating lizards with larger appetites. Lizards will love the pellets’ texture, which is akin to live food.

Hikari Herptile products are designed to make the process of feeding lizards and other reptiles easier for owners, and tastier and more nutritious for pets. A 30-day supply of each product is packed in an Oxy-Stop dual format package with an easy-feed spout for proper proportion offerings — which eliminates the hassle of mixing food and dealing with odor and wasted product. Most importantly, no additional supplementation is required, as each diet provides the nutrients and minerals that reptiles need to thrive. With continued exclusive use of Hikari Herptile products, pet owners will observe a noticeable reduction in waste odor and stickiness, thereby minimizing the amount of time required to clean their reptiles’ habitats.

(PRESS RELEASE) Dryland Dog Mushing is the newest sensation in active dogs and owners coming together for the ultimate exercise experience. K9 Adventures will be showcasing innovative Dryland Mushing technology, The Newest Sacco Dog Cart, at this year’s Global Pet Expo, booth 6651.

Originally started in Europe to train sled dogs in the summer months when the snow would melt; Dryland Mushing has since turned into a year-round, worldwide activity and/or sport in which a dog or team of dogs pull a human on dryland (sand, dirt, grass, rock or cool pavement). Today, local Urban and Dryland Mushing groups have become increasingly popular and meet-ups are happening through parks and nature trails around the country. With safety training and the highest quality components in place, anyone can participate in Dryland Mushing.

The Sacco Dog Cart is world renowned as Urban Mushing’s top-of-the-line foldable cart. Boasting number one in safety, comfort and durability; K-9 Adventures is offering the Sacco cart Designed By Heine Di Leggerini, Sacco International.

Features of the Sacco Dog Cart include:

  • Foldable high-grade steel chassis with an adjustable folding seat back for easy transport and storage.
  • The wheels are 24 inches with low rolling resistant tires and quick disconnecting wheel axle assembly for easy one-step wheel removal and installation.
  • All four wheels utilize hydraulic disc brakes with separate parking brake levers.
  • With a 59-inch steering radius the cart has an independent front axle with swing free steering assembly and almost 4 inches of adjustable rear wheel suspension.

“It is our goal to bring the Sacco cart into more homes and appeal to not only the mushers but to anyone who wants to adventure and spend time with their high energy dog,” expresses Steven Nornhold, CEO at K9 Adventures, “We are very excited to showcase our product at this year’s Global Pet Expo and we can’t wait to share the many benefits of Dryland Mushing and the Sacco Dog Cart with all who attend!”

Disposable, Biodegradable Bowls Available to U.S. Retailers

They are made with bamboo fiber available for hotels and retailers to offer the growing number of pet owners.

(PRESS RELEASE) On-the-go lifestyles and traveling pets means a need for more convenient disposable products for pet owners. Introducing First FWD, LLC’s disposable and biodegradable colorful pet feeding bowls made with bamboo fiber available for hotels and retailers to offer the growing number of pet owners. With more than 1,600 hotels that accommodate pets and many more retailers moving away from plastic, biodegradable pet bowls are a better alternative to helping the environment and peace of mind for pet owners.

First FWD, LLC (https://amzn.to/30Fr0tF) is bringing 100% biodegradable colorful pet bowls to the United States largest hotels and retailers. These pet bowls are made with bamboo fiber that easily decomposes naturally in the environment. There are six different color bowls (Light Blue, Pink, Yellow, Green, Purple and Dark Blue) that come in five different sizes (S, M, L, XL, XXL).

Like many pet owners, First FWD found that traveling with pets meant using multiple plastic bowls or using the same metal bowl throughout a week stay. Leaving a pet’s food and water bowls out for days without cleaning them runs the risk of spreading dangerous bacteria and potentially contracting a foodborne illness. Also, using multiple plastic pet bowls means more plastic pollution for the environment. The solution was to provide a biodegradable pet bowl that was stylish, colorful, functional, as well as sturdy.

The shift toward ethically disposable products is here and First FWD sought out a supplier that is economical; keeping costs affordable for hotels and retailers. Gone are the plain compostable bowls that are single use, flimsy, and boring. As well, no one wants to carry foldable plastic bowls that need to be washed every night when traveling. First FWD, LLC is the first in the United States to bring stylish and colorful biodegradable bowls that are ready for purchase in small quantities or in bulk.

Brenda Button at First FWD, LLC is North American’s Sales Representative working with all businesses to meet budget and supply. Smaller orders can be easily ordered online at: https://amzn.to/30Fr0tF. For larger orders, or a specific color, you can get a quote or sample by speaking directly with Brenda at (403) 681-7225 or 232760@email4pr.com.
