The Pet Industry's Leading Resource for News & Content Distribution

WOODSTOCK, Ga. (June 16, 2015) – After Derek Paetau started traveling with his Great Dane, Blue, he quickly learned how difficult it can be to keep a dog fed and hydrated in a clean and efficient manner. Dissatisfied with countless hard-to-clean, flimsy travel containers and other unreliable makeshift solutions, Derek decided it was simply time to just create his own.

After 10 months of vigorous research, design and collaboration with top outdoor industry designers, Derek landed on the ultimate solution to what he had been seeking: RigPup.

Several prototypes later, Derek and his team have created the perfect container, both in form and function. Made of rugged food grade plastic and silicone, RigPup is an elegantly designed 3-part, complete multifunctional dog feeding solution, which consists of a food bowl, a separate water bowl and a dry dog food storage container, all in one compact, collapsible container. RigPup is designed for busy dog owners on the go who don’t want to worry about where or how they’ll feed or hydrate their companion on their next adventure.

The RigPup team is now looking to breathe life into the product through the help of other dog lovers around the world via its Kickstarter campaign. Currently, RigPup is seeking $68,000 in pledges, which cover tooling for the molds, raw materials and freight. Once funding is secured, the team will immediately begin tooling molds and after 60 days, start shipping the crowdfunding rewards.

RigPup is already starting to gain serious traction from the crowdfunding community, and Derek expects interest to gain and momentum to build as he heads towards the July 2015 end date of the campaign.
