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

Lake of the Ozarks, MO – August 1, 2011 – Two of Hugs Pet Products innovative pet items, the Silicone Dog Treat Pan and the Better Tether, have been selected as Pet Product News International 2011 Retailers’ Top Picks.

“This is awesome and huge for our company,” said Hugs Pet Products President Chad Brewer, who also said he was blown away by the announcement.  “It is truly an honor to be selected out of great companies and products on the market.  We are very excited!”

Competing in categories of at least 10 total products, both the Silicone Dog Treat Pan and Better Tether were selected by retailers, who voted for new pet market products they would most like to have on their store shelves.  All Top Picks are featured in the top monthly pet industry news magazine’s August 2011 issue, recognition that Brewer said supports Hug’s overall mission. 

“It shows that all of the hard work we have done to bring new, different and innovative products to the pet market is paying off.  We will continue to strive to do this with future products we are currently developing,” said Brewer.

A Gift Products category top vote-getter, the Silicone Dog Treat Pan offers consumers a less-expensive, healthy alternative to store-bought, processed pet treats.  The flexible pan allows pet owners to bake fresh, homemade, bone-shaped treats for their pets and even includes several paw-licking good recipes.

The third pick in the Home:  Indoor and Outdoor Products category, the Better Tether, is a first-of-its-kind pet dish that offers a more humane way to tether dogs outdoors and provides a constant source of food and water that cannot be spilled.  The dish is secured in the ground, under the lawnmower’s reach, so owners simply attach their pet’s leash to its base.
