It’s been two years since the pet care community has gathered for Global Pet Expo in Orlando, Florida. While much has changed, many things have remained the same. Produced by the American Pet Products Association (APPA) and Pet Industry Distributors Association (PIDA), Global Pet Expo continues to be the premier international gathering that connects pet product manufacturers, importers, retailers, thought leaders and creative minds.
In place of virtual meetings and digital interactions, pet brands will have in-person discussions with retailers, distributors and other members of the pet care community. The following companies shared with us what they’ll have to offer attendees who visit their booth during the 3-day trade show.
American Wood Fibers
American Wood Fibers (AWF) looks forward to Global Pet Expo attendees who visit at booth 752 to see the brand’s full line of PetsPick small animal bedding products, including the new, sustainably sourced, natural, bright white, ultra-lightweight PetsPick Paper Pellets. Ask for Amy or Julie.
PetsPick creates, manufactures and distributes a wide assortment of branded pet bedding and animal products found on the shelves of some of the top retailers in America. AWF is a leader in sustainable forestry products for homes, pet owners and businesses of all kinds. AWF’s customers count on the brand for delivery of quality, clean and contaminant free products that are green and renewably resourced. Good for people. Good for pets. Good for the planet.
Once again, Ark Naturals is launching innovative and differentiated products demonstrating and validating their leadership position in dental innovation for pets. This year’s innovation excitement is squarely centered on ensuring dogs of all chewing types have a dental chew specifically designed for their individual chewing tolerance. Soft Shield is the only soft baked dental chew on the market today. It is carefully crafted for those pets that are delicate chewers. This 5-in-1 soft baked chew stops plaque and tartar before they start and works from the inside out increasing protective antibodies in the saliva to form a protective barrier on teeth. Extreme Clean is on the other end of the Hardness Scale and is designed to be longer lasting. These once-a-week, deep cleaning chews are longer in shape and wider in diameter than the brand’s Original Brushless Toothpaste, and they offer deep ridges for extreme cleaning. This shape allows pups to “hold” the chew and makes them great for more abrasive scraping of plaque and tartar from hard to reach places like back molars.
Ark Naturals is also unveiling its Denta-Meter Hardness Scale, which the brand created to help pet parents choose the right dental chew for their pup. Every dog’s dental needs are unique, and now they have an option on what hardness is appropriate for their specific chewing tolerance.
Barking Buddha/Natural Cravings
Natural Cravings Pet Treats is a family-owned and operated company dedicated to making healthy and delicious treats, chews and bully sticks that your pets will love to eat. The company has created two distinctive brands that speak to two different customer groups: Natural Cravings USA is exclusively sourced and packed in the U.S.A. and Barking Buddha Pet has a variety of origins but always staying sustainable and grass-fed.
Natural Cravings USA sources everything in the USA, and this process starts with U.S. livestock then continues with manufacturing and packaging in the brand’s warehouse in Homestead, Florida. The brand offers single-ingredient products such as its famous Monster and Super Monster bully sticks and chews. The entire line is slow roasted in human-grade ovens to guarantee high quality while maximizing flavor for your four-legged fur friend.
Barking Buddha has curated a great line of healthy treats that begin with grass-fed and free-range South American livestock. This process continues with the brand’s USDA-approved manufacturing process and packaging. As for organic grooming products, Buddha Bubbles is proudly manufactured in the U.S.A., offering top quality grooming for all dogs’ puppies to seniors with sensitive to normal skin to various skin issues.

COLLAR Company’s goal is to provide its customers and partners with the easiest way to learn about the brand’s innovative pet products. The brand’s state-of-the-art booth (booth 2605) will be showcasing its NASA21 collection, which is approved by NASA and includes collars, leashes, harnesses and clothes. This collection is the only pet product line that has been approved to be on NASA’s official website.
Visitors to booth 2605 will also discover WAUDOG (leather, nylon and waterproof accessories), EVOLUTOR (the most durable collar and leash with a global lifetime warranty), AiryVest (the lightest dog jacket in the world) WAUDOG Re-cotton (dog accessories made from recycled cotton), WAUDOG Smart ID (pet tags with QR passports and unique designs). Ring-Shaped WAUDOG Leash (named Product of the Year 2020/2021 award by PET Worldwide).
Puller, a dog fitness tool, will also be showcased at Global Pet Expo. COLLAR Company will also demonstrate its newest products that have entered the U.S. market, including the WAUDOG Reflective series (collars and clothes), ergonomic patch for collars and smart ID tags with QR passports. Visitors and pet partners will learn more about COLLAR Company’s licensees at its booth. Originally designed WAUDOG products will be demonstrated for the first time at Global Pet Expo.
As a partner to Distinctly Himalayan’s best-selling Karma Cat cat toy line, the company is excited to launch its new Dharma Dog line of dog toys at Global Pet Expo. This wool blend allows dog’s teeth to sink in all the way to the gums. Coarse wool fibers have jagged edges to scrape away food and plaque. It features safe, non-toxic dyes and there are no synthetic fibers that may be harmful if ingested.
Dharma Dog Karma Cat is also excited to introduce new branding and packaging. This new branding will more impactfully reflect the handmade nature of the brand’s products, and also its commitment to sustainability and fair trade. Pet owners are incredibly well informed when it comes to brands, and cynical in all the right ways. Gone are the days of simply greenwashing. The informational landscape has moved beyond soundbites and spin; substance is king. Dharma Dog Karma Cat is all about transparency. The brand’s approach to its products and marketing is the same. Be straight-forward, honest and use every day to learn and get better at what it does.
Sustainability and fair trade have been part of the brand’s core principles from the time it was founded. For Dharma Dog Karma Cat, sustainability means that the brands leave as minimal a mark on the planet as possible. Fair Trade means its entire production chain, from the farmers it buys its wool from to the artisans and even the people who ship its products, are part of a cycle that improves their lives. Product packaging is the perfect example of this. It is biodegradable, and the brand goes so far as to tie its toys to their header cards with natural fiber twine, and not plastic. This both provides employment for less skilled workers and means that hundreds of thousands of plastic fasteners aren’t go back into the environment.
This year at Global Pet Expo, Yeowww! Catnip is all about fun. Founded in 1997, Duckyworld will be celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year and are looking forward to reconnecting with its customers at the show. The company has partnered with Sterling Davis, known as the “Trapking,” to educate and entertain attendees. Davis will be at the DuckyWorld Products/Yeowww! Catnip booth 2644 from 1 to 3 p.m. March 24. As a former professional rapper and one of the only African American cat rescuers in the nation, Davis has taken his mission of humanely controlling cat overpopulation into the national spotlight. He has been featured for his lifesaving work on the Drew Barrymore Show, Netflix’s Cat People, the Today Show, the Washington Post, The Dodo and many more. Davis will talk about the importance of cat enrichment as well as perform some cat raps, to showcase his work in feline rescue. He lives and breathes his motto: You don’t lose cool points for compassion.
Yeowww! Catnip plans to release a new product at the show, Yeowww! Catnip Buds. The brand will also showcase its newest toys: Pineapple and Kitten Mittens.

Nulo is proud to introduce our newest line of functional treats for cats – a health & wellness-focused line designed to provide cats with the enrichment they crave in the form of a crunchy better-for-them snack. Nulo’s nutritional philosophy extends to all of our product lines and has a critical role in allowing us to balance nutrition with the needs of both pets and owners.

NutriSource is excited to be showcasing two new products driven by innovation, both in product and mission.

At Global Pet Expo this year, Supreme will be showcasing its popular Science Selective and Tiny Friends Farm (TFF) ranges, two of the strongest performing brands in the small pet food sector. The company will also be launching its new consumer marketing campaigns for 2022 which will further support the sales of these renowned and successful brands.
As the widest range of veterinary recommended species-specific foods for small pets, Science Selective supports optimum digestive health and meets the unique nutritional needs of small animals. The range is developed by veterinary experts and nutritionists, meaning it is trusted by owners and receives high customer brand loyalty. Lifestage diets (junior, adult, mature) ensure that the pet’s exact nutritional needs are met throughout life. In line with Supreme’s commitment to the environment, the packaging of the Science Selective range is fully recyclable.
Multi-award-winning small pet brand Tiny Friends Farm was launched over twenty years ago. It offers fantastic value for money whilst not compromising on quality. Developed by nutritional experts, TFF is made with high quality natural ingredients for optimum digestive health. This wholesome fun range including Russel Rabbit and Gerty Guinea Pig provides pets with nutritionally balanced diets and is trusted by owners to meet their pet’s specific needs.
To support sales of both brands, Supreme is launching new consumer marketing campaigns for 2022. The Science Selective campaign focuses on vet recommended science-based nutrition, emphasizing the specific nutritional needs of each individual stage of a pet’s life. Bold, eye-catching branding attracts customer attention and new lifestyle photography directly connects owners to their pets and the Selective brand. The Tiny Friends Farm campaign focuses on the fun TFF characters for greater emotional engagement to the products. Marketing materials directly communicate the high quality, value for money messaging. For both product ranges, retailers are supported with a full range of brand specific advertising and POS materials including educational leaflets, posters, free food samples and voucher schemes to encourage customer loyalty and repeat purchases.

Seaflex is West Paw’s new eco-venture. Made from an exclusive blend of reclaimed and recycled ocean-bound plastic and zero-waste Zogoflex material, this collection of pet toys and feeding accessories saves plastic from winding up in our oceans. Millions of tons of plastic head for the ocean every year — bad news for the planet but thanks to a collaboration with Oceanworks, West Paw is safely and responsibly sourcing ocean-bound plastic from threatened coastal areas in Central America and making them into things dogs love.
The Seaflex collection is made up of four dog toys: Sailz, Drifty (in two sizes), and Snorkl as well as a no-slip dog bowl and doggy placemat. Like Zogoflex, Seaflex is safe and non-toxic: BPA-free, phthalate-free, latex-free, and FDA compliant and recyclable through the Join our Loop program. All products have been tested for Toughness and backed by West Paw’s Love It Guarantee.
Unique as a seashell, the Seaflex toys all have different swirl patterns within a single colorway to visually conveys the variable nature of the material flow within each molded shape. This was intentional in our product design, as the color mixes within the machine, they produce infinitely unique and beautiful color combinations making each toy unique to its 4-legged owner.
It’s ingenious. It’s revolutionary. Shape makes the difference. The next generation of dog treats-today. You’ve got to see it to believe it! Visit booth 1504 for a free sample of Yummy Combs, an innovation that is the result of a select few minds with records of success and dedication to helping pets live a happier, healthier and extended life thereby providing more love and enjoyment for owners. This includes creative individuals with an aggregate of over 100 years in the pet industry and some of the industries’ most innovative products.
Shape is the major innovative component of Yummy Combs with six issued patents and three more pending. The shape is designed to address two major issues of dogs – gulping and reducing and removing dental calculus. Yummy Combs are designed to provide 360-degree flossing and scrubbing to the gum lines. The thin wall design helps Yummy Combs to dissolve rapidly, but more importantly the hexagonal shape is designed to deter gulping as the treat is larger than the opening of the oropharynx. If fed as recommended, the dog cannot gulp the product without first chewing. The revolutionary shape is then packed with 44 percent protein and 12 special wellness ingredients to provide sources of all required amino acids, vitamins and minerals for a dog to survive and thrive. It is low in starch to deter obesity – the No. 1 nutritional issue of dogs.
