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

GOLDEN, Colo. (July 19, 2013) – “Handcrafted in the USA” and “earth-friendly” are two descriptors generally not associated with pet products. However, a family-owned pet products company outside of Denver has set out to shake things up in the pet industry by having their products incorporate both.

At this year’s SuperZoo, The Good Dog Company will showcase its specialty pet products that are proudly manufactured out of the town of Golden, Colo. and created from environmentally safe and renewable materials.

When company owner Wendy Schuchart acquired The Good Dog Company in 2011, she made a conscious decision to offer products she could be proud to sell.

“As pet parents continue to purchase more natural and organic products for their own personal use, this trend is mirrored in the purchases they make for their pets,” Schuchart said. “When I acquired The Good Dog Company, I wanted to be able to say my products were high quality, pet safe and environmentally friendly, as well as affordable.”

The Good Dog Company will be displaying their full product line at SuperZoo booth #4852, which includes the company’s ever-popular hemp toys, leashes, collars and harnesses for dogs in addition to hemp collars for cats. All of The Good Dog Company’s products are made from 55% hemp and 45% USDA-certified organic cotton, which are not only durable materials, but also 100% safe for pets. In fact, one of the advantages to using hemp is that it’s not only hypo-allergenic but also anti-microbial and antifungal – a big health advantage for today’s pets and pet parents.

“Our sustainable, all-natural products are what pet parents are clamoring for nowadays,” she said. “Pet parents treat their pets like family members, and that being the case, want only the best, safest products for their pets in their homes. Add the fact that our products help create jobs here in the United States and what you have is a winning product line for store shelves and pet-filled homes across the country.”
