MONROVIA, Calif. (April 16, 2014) – The ‘K9 UNIT’ is the current winner of Pet Business magazine’s Innovation Award for Travel Products. The concept has been proven in the industry and by the positive feedback from working dog handlers who field tested a small production run in 2013. H2O4K9 Inc. is now looking to fund the tooling and the first production run by launching a crowd-funding campaign on KickStarter.com.
A leading designer and manufacturer of high quality travel accessories for dog lovers, H2O4K9 Inc. is looking for your help to launch: The ‘K9 UNIT,’ a rugged, insulated version of their Stainless Steel Dog Water Bottle & Bowl combination, specially designed for working dogs.
The K9 Unit was inspired by a call from an Army canine handler inquiring about the H2O4K9 Dog Water Bottle & Travel Bowls. Based on feedback gathered from additional working dog groups including Search & Rescue, Police K9, and Military Working Dogs, H2O4K9 has developed a dog water bottle that can hold up under extreme conditions.
“Too frequently, we see news coverage of tragic events and the dedicated search & rescue teams working to save lives in the aftermath. Not to mention the working dogs that contribute to our safety every day, at our air and sea ports, Homeland Security, and Law Enforcement. These dogs deserve the best equipment we can provide, and having clean water is vital to their work. KickStarter will allow us to provide these bottles directly to the dogs who need them most,” says Bryce Lien, founder of H2O4K9 Inc.
“The responses I get from these MWD handlers are always positive. If a handler passes another who does not have one of these great items, then I will hear from those handlers asking for a H2O4K9 bottle of their own.” says Tracy Spader, Founder of K9 Defender Fund.
