I hope you had a nice weekend!
Last week we attended SuperZoo, the annual show for pet retailers in Las Vegas.
It was so great to walk around, meet enthusiastic pet product companies and inventors, who are really working hard to contribute their best ideas to this wonderful industry.
While strolling between the booths, I noticed more and more technology based inventions.
One of the coolest inventions that I ran into at SuperZoo, was a device that allows the dog parent communicate with his or her dog via video call, essentially Skype for dogs. (BTW, this is what happens when your dog Skypes).
I was surprised to learn that the iCPooch Founder is the lovely Brooke Martin, who is only 14 years old. iCPooch was born as a result of an 8th grade school project at an intense 54 hour event called Startup Weekend Spokane, held in September of 2012 at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington.
I was delighted to meet Brooke, and to see how passionate she is about her brainchild.
I can’t wait to see what else this growing industry will bring us. As long as it can improve the lives of pets around the world, I’m all for it.
Have a pawesome week!
