Global Pet Expo takes place every year in Orlando and is a pet industry event where retailers can see the latest and greatest pet products.
I attend the show to find innovative products that make your life easier as a pet parent as well as see some of our commercial pet photography work on display.
Below is a roundup of my favorite products from Global Pet Expo 2023.
Gotta Go Grass
When you live in Florida, and a hurricane is coming, what are you supposed to do for your pets who need to use the bathroom outside during the storm? Well, Gotta Go Grass is the answer! They send you real sod from their farm in Florida.
“Are you tired of smelly wee-wee pads that leave a mess? Does your dog hate going out in stormy weather, or do you need a potty solution for your pet while you are at work? Our real grass pee pads for dogs are an excellent solution. They are made from real grass grown right on our family farm and delivered right to your door”
Flingerz caught my eye because not only do I love playing fetch, with my dog Rigby, but their take on this makes throwing the ball a lot easier. Their design also allows for easier pickup vs some of their competitors. They also have plush toys that have been created to use with their throwing stick too, so if your dog prefer plush toys, over balls, you should check out Flingerz!
“Our mission is to extend play time with your dog, which means solving the problem of touching slobbery toys. From treat holding balls to squeaky plush characters, Flingerz offers launchable toys that deliver “tail waggin fun” – all with hands free pick up!”
Fluff and Tuff
My dogs, Rigby and Bee, love Fluff and Tuff toys toys! They’re not indestructible, but they have a mesh inner layer that helps them last a lot longer. They also have lots of fun animal designs and varying sizes for small to large dogs.
“Fluff & Tuff toys combine superior quality materials with proven construction methods to create durable plush toys on the market today.”
Hunger for Words
You may have seen viral videos of Christina Hunger and her dog Stella using buttons to communicate. Sarah is a speech pathologist and has her own line of buttons to help you teach your dog to talk too!
“Teach your dog the essentials with 6 pre-recorded buttons & instructions written by Christina, the creator of the Talking Dog Movement!”
Wagz Smart Pet Bowl
With 3 pets, and one water bowl, it can be hard to know if everyone is getting enough. You can combine it with their smart collar to differentiate each pet and see how much each one is consuming. So cool! I’m also a big sucker for technology.
It appears their Smart Bowl isn’t out yet, but you can sign up for more information on their website.
If you have a new puppy or even an adult dog with anxiety, the Snuggle Puppy may be for you. Their product has a battery pack inside that creates vibration and you can also add a heating pack too.
“The Original Snuggle Puppy® for pets is joined by Snuggle Puppy HERO® made just for people! Using our exclusive Real-Feel Heartbeat®, Snuggle Puppy®and Snuggle Puppy HERO® are designed to naturally calm, helping reduce anxiety, stress, or overstimulation.”
If you have pets who shed, you should be a customer of the FurZapper. their product removes fur from your clothes when you put them in the dryer. They were also featured on Shark Tank!
“Gently and effectively remove excess pet hair with The FurZapper Pet Grooming glove. Designed to be gentle, durable, and efficient, the FurZapper Pet grooming glove makes hair removal a simple and enjoyable process for your pets. Simply put the glove on either hand, and pet, rub, and massage the hair off.”
