I swear, one of these years we're going to make it the 2017 Global Pet Expo. I seriously cannot imagine a more fun way to spend a few days than surrounded by tons of cool new pet products!
Even though we won't be in Orlando this week, here's a list of some of the booths you should swing by and check out. It seems like two of the big themes this year are "smart" Internet connected toys and premium/fresh/all natural pet food. There are going to be HUNDREDS of vendors at the Expo, but these are just a few of those that reached out to us in advance that caught our eye:
easyPlay Interactive Pet Toy - Booth 5876
An interactive toy that can be controlled by your smartphone, the easyPlay allows you to monitor your pet, reward them with treats and track their physical activity when you're not home. Featuring a treat dispenser and two-way cameras/microphones, it's an interesting spin on the traditional pet camera.
Portland Pet Food Company - Booth 5974
All-natural, human grade pet food seems to be the standard these days. The folks at Portland Pet Food Company are taking it to the next level with their shelf-stable, sustainably packaged meals for your pup. They make a variety of meals and food toppers that sound pretty tasty!
i and love and you - Booth 1291
This super premium pet food and treat company is one of our favorites! I'm sure they've got lots of excited previews planned for you. We particularly love their odor-less chews!
Under the Weather - Booth 5967
I know... "bland food" isn't something you typically advertise, but for all of those dog parents who have spent hours in the kitchen whipping up chicken and rice for their sick pets, Under the Weather is a convenient solution made of bland stuff and 100% human grade freeze-dried meats.
Well, maybe we'll see you next year Global Pet Expo! If you're going, drop us a line or send us a tweet (@Barkzilla) to let us know what your favorite products/services are! And hey... if anyone wants to send us a ticket next year...
