About Poochie-Pets, LLC:
Founded in 2005, Cheryl Pedersen, owner of Poochie-Pets, LLC, created PoochieBells® after recognizing the need for a decorative, economical, problem solver to stop dog accidents in the home. The company began selling PoochieBells® potty training dog doorbells to individuals via the internet at that time. A year later, after attending trade shows, marketing the product, and through professional dog endorsements, retail sales began to come in throughout the United States, Canada and abroad. Three years ago, to enhance their product offering, the company introduced custom-made pewter metal hooks (made in Rhode Island), exclusively-designed collars and leashes, and LeashLink® leash accessory to hold keys, poop bags, etc. while walking the dog. In 2009, the company moved from the owner’s home into a larger manufacturing facility to accommodate its growth and workforce. With the exception of the hooks and
Furbitz®, all of Poochie-Pets’ products are made at the Simsbury, CT facility.
About Made for Dogs™:
Made for Dogs™ is a young, fast-growing company founded in 2008 by Jolanda van der Basch. Jolanda’s, maiden name is “van der Made” and therefore the company name Made for Dogs™ was easily found. Jolanda is a dog-loving person and own’s two Bearded Collies. To help avoid muddy paws in the house, she came across the PawPlunger product in the United States and started to sell this product in Europe. This was the start of the company, and Jolanda soon recognized the need of niche products in Europe. Traveling through the United States looking for other unique products, she came across PoochieBells® dog potty training doorbells. Immediately, Jolanda was impressed by the unique, quality craftsmanship put into this product. The Made for Dogs™ company slogan is “Specialized in Specialties” and is why Made for Dogs™ feels Poochie-Pets is a perfect match for them.
