CORAM, NEW YORK (April 29, 2013) – The patent pending ShaPooPee™ dog walking tool is currently seeking funding support via a Kickstarter campaign, through May 22, 2013. Designed by engineer Guido Bonelli, Jr., ShaPooPee was created out of the need to carry all essential items when taking a dog out for a walk. Keys, money, poop bags, training treats, and a super bright light are all contained in a small, lightweight plastic carrier that comes with a wrist strap.
Bonelli is eager to bring this convenient accessory to pet parents everywhere. “ShaPooPee is the tool you’ll grab as you reach for your dog’s leash, knowing that you’ll have everything needed for an enjoyable walk together. No more worrying if you’ve locked your door without taking a key, or have run out of poop bags. ShaPooPee has all of the items conveniently in one spot, making dog walking even more relaxing and fun for pet parents and their pets.”
Bonelli is an electrical engineer for a world leading engineering/manufacturing company. He has successfully managed multiple small and large scale product launches from inception to production and has been in the field for more than 10 years. “I love the creativity involved in breathing life into an idea, and with ShaPooPee I am creating an invention that can help pet parents enjoy the pet ownership lifestyle even more,” states Bonelli.
The Kickstarter campaign, at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1366304364/shapoopee-simplifying-walking-your-dog, seeks funding for Bonelli to manufacture the ABS solid plastic molds for ShaPooPee, followed by assembly and packaging. Bonelli has selected Proto Labs, a U.S.-based plastics manufacturer, to mold the ShaPooPee product, and plans to ship product in August 2013. Products will be available for testing in July.
