It’s time of year again, when pet industry folks gather in Orlando for Global Pet Expo, one of the largest pet conventions in the world. I’m excited to be going; I always find great dog fashion and such cool products to share with you!
What makes Global so much fun?
Imagine aisles and aisles full of new clothing, some not yet on the market; toys, home decor, food and treats…everything for pets you can imagine, and from all over the world! We get to meet with these brands, sample what they have to offer and see which ones we love enough to share with the world.
This year, I’m meeting with Lisa Vanderpump of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to talk her pet fashion collection; Shorty Rossi from Animal Planet’s show, Pit Boss, to talk Pitties and shelter dogs. Remember the hip-hop hitmakers, Outkast? I’ll be meeting with Big Boi of that group and dog grooming maven, Bobbi Panter, to talk their new collaboration and what they’re releasing that can help us. And, there will be lots of very cool and conscious companies with brand, new products, like the Friendship Collar, a completely vegan and great looking pet collar and matching bracelet, so you can both rock the same look.
Follow me on social; the next best thing to being there
I’ll be walking the aisles, taking pictures of things I discover and love and posting them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, so check in with me at my handle @BarkandSwagger on each for the latest updates!
And, there will be a Bark & Swagger radio show just on Global, with interviews from those mentioned above, as well as brands I’ve come across and want to share with you. Stay tuned for that; will let you know when it goes up. You can listen to my other radio interviews, including Isaac Mizrahi, here.
For those who might be interested in the exciting products I discovered last year, check out my coverage from that show.
See you when I get back. Look for my posts over the next week.
