The pet industry is huge, growing and almost exclusively focused on solving problems – the root of innovative ideas. Yet, unlike tech, it’s not given it’s innovative due. Sure, there’s plenty of pet tech (check out SuperZoo 2018), but sometimes a simple adjustment to an existing product is all that’s needed. Add a handle, an […]
Flash forward to 2017, and Sara, along with her Super Collies Hero and Loki, are gaining attention from Howie Mandel and Simon Cowell on T.V.’s America’s Got Talent Season 12. Sara and her dogs’ repertoire of tricks earned the Super Collies team fifth place that season, and an invite to appear on America’s Got Talent Champions Edition two years later.
How much data do we need about our pets? A lot, apparently especially when you ask manufactures for pet tech gear.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…. No, not Christmas but close. SuperZoo! It’s SuperZoo time, a huge annual pet industry trade show in Las Vegas, where I went (sadly without my dog Victor) to be overwhelmed by both distractions in Sin City and the multitude of pet products, ideas, innovations and people who […]
SuperZoo is the World Pet Association’s mega pet industry trade show held annually in Las Vegas. This year more than 1200 exhibitors participated, and if you doubt the growth, size and even influence of the pet industry in North America, spend two days walking and talking the 8,5000 square feet of trade show floor and, after you collapse, your mind will be changed – and blown.
Go all in and add Las Vegas to the list of places promoted as ‘pet-friendly.’ (Well, for dogs anyway). According to TravelWeekly, an eNewsletter for travel industry members, more properties in Sin City are allowing dogs because so many people are travelling with canines in tow.
