Saving Spot Donation Program Receives New Leash on Life

Saving Spot Press Release

-New dog leads given to nonprofit organizations dedicated to saving dogs.-

May 14, 2014 – Simsbury, CT – Since its inception in 2012, U.S.-based, non-profit organizations committed to saving dogs have benefited from Poochie-Pets’ community-minded Saving Spot donation program. Originally designed as a buy-one give-one program, new dog collars were donated to participants based on products sold from the company’s Saving Spot line. Upon recognizing that the collars restricted some organizations from participating, i.e. larger breeds and those dogs requiring harness-style collars, the company has updated their program and now donates nylon dog leashes.

In addition to changing the donated collars to leashes, the company has revamped the Saving Spot product line and buy-one give-one ratio. Making it a more accessible program to participate, the company bases the donations on a percentage of each month’s sales from its Saving Spot products. On average, Poochie-Pets has provided over 100 leashes to each of the organizations who have participated since the program’s revision. Products from the Saving Spot line include PoochieBells® housetraining dog doorbells and custom-made dog collars, leashes, and pewter metal hook.

In addition, as the Saving Spot adage “spotting pooches in need” states, the company randomly selects organizations and sends ten leashes, indicating that they have been spotted and thanking them for their work. Any U.S., non-profit organization whose mission is to saving dogs is eligible to participate. To learn more, visit http://poochie-pets.net/saving-spot/.

PoochieBells® Rings in Ten Year Anniversary

PoochieBells® Rings in Ten Year Anniversary

-Valentine’s Day marks milestone for housetraining dog doorbell.-

 

January 12, 2015 – Simsbury, CT –  What began ten years ago as a solution to stop her puppy’s accidents, PoochieBells® designer, Cheryl Pedersen, started a dog doorbell company by introducing her creation to the marketplace. Eventually, PoochieBells would pave the way for a bell product in the dog training category where there once was none. To commemorate Poochie-Pets’ ten-year anniversary, the company will be offering various promotions throughout 2015, introducing new products, and holding an open house in the spring.

 

“We wish to thank all of our customers, vendors, sales team and the media for helping our company reach this milestone.” Cheryl Pedersen said, “Through the years, we’ve established great relationships with our clients, many of whom have been selling PoochieBells® from the start. We are grateful for their loyalty.”

 

Handcrafted in Simsbury, CT using USA custom-made, lead-free metal components, PoochieBells® are made to hang inside the house on a doorknob or hook by the door. The original version measures 26″ long and contains two sets of strategically-placed bells enabling the dog to access the doorbell using their nose or paw. This month, Poochie-Pets introduced a longer version of PoochieBells®, containing one set of smaller, custom bells to accommodate timid dogs and teacup breeds. Made ten years ago exclusively of grosgrain ribbon patterns, styles and materials have expanded over the years with the addition of bamboo webbing, leather, custom patterns, and a newly-added breed-specific Paper Llamas’ designed PoochieBells®. By following the recommended three-step training process included with each doorbell, the dog learns to ring PoochieBells®, communicating with their owner it is time to be let out.

 

Established in 2005, Poochie-Pets of Simsbury, CT introduced PoochieBells® house-training doorbells as a means to stop dog accidents in the home. Since then, the company has expanded their dog-themed offering to include Live in Dog Years™, a gift line of people products with canine sentiments, and pet peeve solutions including 3Sixty Fun pet leash tie-out, dry and wet sponges, and to-go Pet Towel™. In 2014, the company reintroduced their Saving Spot “spotting pooches in need” donation program whereby the company provides nonprofit organizations dedicated to saving dogs with new nylon dog leashes. http://poochie-pets.net
