Petmate Introduces More Than 175 Products at SuperZoo 2014

Petmate introduced more than 175 products at SuperZoo 2014, held July 22, 2014 to July 24, 2014 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Many of the company's new products have been developed with a keen focus on natural animal behavior and fostering the bond between people and their pets through play. Petmate will unveil an exclusive cat product line developed with renowned cat expert and animal advocate Jackson Galaxy, star of the Animal Planet's My Cat from Hell. The Jackson Galaxy Collection by Petmate features a variety of wands, toys, scratchers, tunnels and tents to cater to the ideal cat environment, known to Galaxy fans as Catification. Available to consumers beginning Fall 2014, the line features 25 new products including the irregular shapes of Jackson Galaxy Collection Cat Dice create an unpredictable bounce to keep cats engaged and ignite raw cat play. The toy can be filled with treats to create a puzzle that offers extra motivation and reward. With a vibrating mechanism in its body activated by pulling the tail, the Jackson Galaxy Motor Mouse offers random movements to maintain a cat's interest and includes a made-in-the-USA catnip pod in its center for added excitement. Cats can fish kibble or treats out of the Jackson Galaxy Collection Go Fish puzzle toy, featuring silicone fish tails that stimulate cats' natural hunting instincts. Dishwasher safe, the tails remove for cleaning and easily rotate to continuously change the puzzle. The Jackson Galaxy Mojo Maker, available in an Air Prey or Ground Prey option, features a telescoping wand and an interchangeable toy that allows cat families to direct interactive play. Air Prey is for cats that like to climb tall furniture and chase flying objects, while Ground Prey is for cats that prefer lurking under furniture and chasing anything that goes by. Designed to encourage a cat's need to stalk and attach to its prey, the Jackson Galaxy Twisted Kicker includes made-in-the-USA catnip pods at each end. Available in denim with a sisal center band or in plush velvet. Created to offer security during play, the Jackson Galaxy Base Camp Hub encourages cat play in and around a carrier and features tunnel attachments on three sides. Pet specialty retailers can get the Jackson Galaxy Shipper by Petmate for greater flexibility in merchandising products in a secondary location. Galaxy will be in the Petmate booth on July 22, 2014.

Petmate Introduces More Than 100 New Products at 2014 Global Pet Expo, in Orlando

Petmate introduced more than 100 new products at the 2014 Global Pet Expo March 12-14, in Orlando, Fla. Many of the company's new products have been developed with a keen focus on natural animal behavior, home decor and fashion trends, and ever-increasing pet travel needs. The company has partnered with renowned cat expert Jackson Galaxy for an exclusive line of cat play products that will roll out in 2014 and cater to natural cat behaviors and the ideal cat lifestyle. Galaxy is the executive producer and star of Animal Planet's 'My Cat from Hell,' now in production for its fifth season scheduled for spring 2014, and best-selling author of 'Cat Daddy: What the World's Most Incorrigible Cat Taught Me About Life, Love and Coming Clean.' The company is also expanding its popular Chuckit!(R) dog toy line, which nurtures the natural bond between people and their dogs through play. The line will offer six new toys and has added a new 'way to play' with NightPlay -- designed to encourage play after the sun goes down. The first product in the new line, the Chuckit! Firefly(TM) LED Ball, lights up with two ultra-bright, multicolor LED lights that fade between colors, creating a constant motion that helps dogs see the ball better when it is stationary. Also new is the Chuckit! Kick Cube(TM) which provides an erratic bounce and features strategic rubber bite zones to allow easy pickup for dogs of all sizes. To help pet accessories meld easily and stylishly into pet homes, the company has introduced new food storage options that take inspiration from reimagined vintage pieces. The Mason Inspired Food Storage line by Petmate features a light tinted container that allows pet parents to see when it's time to refill. Available in a wide variety of sizes, the containers keep treats and food fresh and efficiently stored.
