HH Backer Chirstmas Show
This last weekend I had the opportunity to attend the HH Backer Christmas show to get a sneak peak at the items that will be on the Pet Store Shelves for Christmas. The show was intense yet different from other Pet Product Trade shows I have attended. I was able to take some time to really get to know some of the companies there, reconnect with companies I have worked with before, and get an inside look at the latest trends in the pet industry.
There was a big push towards natural, organics, and grain free in the food and treats section including one treat company I completely fell in love with. So as soon as Davinia and Indiana get to try the treats they gave me I will be posting a company spotlight about them I am that excited about the treats they make. Let’s put it this was I asked if I could stay and eat their treats for lunch (the only thing stopping me was there were a lot of dogs out on the exhibit floor and they could have put their mouths in and grabbed a few treats from the bulk barrels).
While we don’t focus all that much on grooming products because I just don’t think they are all that much fun I did find a fun grooming product in the boutique section. It was glitter gel for dogs. Its not something super serious or even something you need but the glitter gel is a fun way to “dress up” your dog without much effort on your or your dog’s part. The glitter gel comes in a ton of colors and adds a fun sparkle to your pet.
In the toy area I had the opportunity to reconnect with an old friend that makes organic dog toys (stuffed animals and nap mats). I met this company through a review I did for them a long time ago and then got to meet in person at Global Pet Expo and always make some time to stop by and say hello at shows. You have no idea how excited I am about their new product concepts which will be launching next year. I wish I had permission to tell you all about them but one of the products is so innovative it is sure to cause a stir the second it is launched. Let’s just say it takes a natural resource to a whole new level and I cannot wait until we get one or two to review!
At HH Backer Christmas Show I made a ton of new contacts whose products will be showing up on the pages of Two Little Cavaliers in the near future.
