It’s no secret that our clients are amazing, but Pet Product News did all but shout it from the rooftops when they released the 2016 Editors’ Choice Awards. Unsurprisingly, our favorite brands are present in full force on this year’s list – take a look:
Winning product: Goat Horns Chews
Winning qualities: Like all Barkworthies products, these new nutrient-rich chews are 100% all-natural and additive, chemical and preservative free. The horns are composed of a durable keratin outside layer with a healthful marrow inside. Even aggressive chewers find goat horns challenging, providing hours of appetizing and satisfying chew time.
Winning product: Canine Cafe
Winning qualities: This new canned recipe is 100% nutritionally complete and balanced for dogs of all life stages. Made with cuts of real meat or poultry as the first ingredient, the grain- and gluten-free dinners include healthy staples like cranberries, salmon oil and turmeric and skip all artificial preservatives, flavors and colors.
Caru Pet Food
Winning product: Soft ‘n Tasty exotic treats (Alligator, Rabbit, Wild Boar)
Winning qualities: USDA-inspected meat is always the first ingredient in these new baked flavors. Add healthful blueberries and cranberries and prepare in small batches with non-GMO ingredients and you’ve got Caru’s delicious new high-quality treats.
The Company of Animals
Winning product: HALTI Walking Range
Winning qualities: The HALTI Walking Range perfectly combines style and function with its collars, harnesses and lead-style options. Choose from four vibrant colors with 3M reflective weave and soft neoprene padding for visibility and comfort.
Gold Paw Series
Winning product: Sun Shield Tee
Winning qualities: The adorable tee blocks UV rays to keep your dog cool in warm weather. The lightweight, stretchy jersey blocks 98% of the sun’s UV rays while remaining comfy for indoor or outdoor wear. Sun Shield Tees are antimicrobial and can also be worn all day to help dogs with wounds, skin conditions or anxiety.
The Green Pet Shop
Winning product: Bamboo Training Pads
Winning qualities: The Bamboo Training Pads have a super-absorbent bamboo core to prevent “wet paw” tracking and leaks after use. Each environmentally friendly pad can hold more than three cups of fluid and naturally neutralizes odors thanks to quick-dry technology.
Winning product: Ciao Grilled Fillets
Winning qualities: Made from hand-cut, responsibly harvested tuna or farm-raised chicken, these fillets were formulated to be high in moisture for feline health. With eight tasty varieties – including “extra tender” options for senior cats and teething kittens – there’s something for every kitty.
Winning product: Mineral Spa Shampoo for dogs
Winning qualities: This natural solution leaves pups clean, shiny and fluffy. This isn’t a standard doggie shampoo – the botanical extracts and nutrients are absorbed into the coat and skin, leaving your dog soft and conditioned. The shampoos are also pH balanced and low sudsing to make rinsing a breeze.
