OurPet’s Company Introduces Innovative New Products at SuperZoo 2015
FAIRPORT HARBOR, Ohio – July 21, 2015 – The OurPet’s Company (OPCO), a leading proprietary pet supply company, is launching a variety of exciting, innovative products under the OurPets® and Pet Zone® brands. The products run the gamut from toys to feeding solutions for both cats and dogs. These products will be displayed at SuperZoo, which takes place from July 21-23, 2015, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The company’s booth is #3115.
Three exclusive and original new items will round out the OurPets brand cat toy offering. New toys include the Catty Whack®, an electronic toy designed to captivate cats with a feathery game of hide and seek. The Catty Whack can be placed on a floor or table. Once switched on, a feather wand begins to dart in and out of each of five “mouse holes” in the toy. The wand mimics the erratic movement of prey in the wild, stimulating cats’ hunting instincts and inspiring play and exercise. To further the appeal, Catty Whack features the proprietary electronic RealMouse™ sound, which sounds just like a squeaking mouse in the wild. Cats can also stretch their paws and groom their claws on the carpet pad on top of the toy.
Great for cats who need encouragement to exercise, the Fly By™ Spinner Toy features a bird, bee, or butterfly on a wire. A battery-operated motor causes the winged toy to flit and flutter with lifelike “flying” movement. Cats will be mesmerized as the toy spins, dives, and darts. The Fly By’s wings vibrate, mimicking the sound of a real insect, and inspiring cats to swat, bat, and chase.
Finally, Pet Zone is introducing the Zoom Plume™, another great interactive toy to get cats on their feet! The Zoom Plume is designed to roll across the floor as its battery-operated cylinder pushes an alluring feather in and out of the holes on either end. Cats love to try to catch the feather, and the rolling action keeps them moving and engaged in their “hunt.”
Mealtime gets a dose of fashion with new offerings in OurPets feeding solutions. New designer bowls shine in new metals and waterbath designs. New chalkboard bowls are made of durable stainless steel with a chalkboard band for writing a dog’s name or decorating by hand. Finally, elevated dining takes a fashionable stance with the Barking Bistro, designed to provide a healthy posture for dining while matching contemporary décor with its sleek design.
Dogs will be happy to see our new Flappy! Flappy® Dog Toys have been reimagined and reengineered to provide an even more fulfilling and instinct-inspiring experience for every pooch. All Flappys include the patented flaps that stimulate the look and feel of caught prey, but the chew toy in the middle is now made of tough and rugged rubber with gentle nubs that help clean teeth and gums. To further the frolic, two different sounds are available. One Flappy makes an electronic RealPrey™ sound to appeal to dog breeds that were bred to hunt rodents. Another Flappy has a traditional dog-toy squeaker inside the tough rubber exterior. A third style is designed to float – great for dogs who love to play in the water! New Flappy toys will be available under both the Pet Zone and OurPets labels. Flappy dogs are happy dogs!
Finally, your dog will be eating in chic comfort with the Pet Zone Designer Diner, designed to close the distance between your dog and his food and water, thereby reducing strain on his neck and joints. The feeder accommodates all dog sizes by adjusting from 2.75” to 8” to 12” tall. Its fashionable and sturdy design will complement any kitchen.
“We are very excited about our new line-up of products,” commented Dr. Steven Tsengas, chairman and CEO. “These new items complement our corporate mission to exceed expectations with innovative solutions. Our goal is to create products that work in tandem with pets’ natural instincts to ensure their emotional, mental, and physical health while always helping to increase the bond between pets and their parents.”
