Filling the void in the pet product industry…with water!
MILLERTON, N.Y., Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – The Ultimate Dog Pool, Inc., an innovative new supplier of products for water-loving dogs, today announces its first product, The Ultimate Dog Pool – Labrador Retreat. The Labrador Retreat is an inflatable dog pool which provides medium to large size dogs with a safe and healthy environment for exercise and play.
The Ultimate Dog Pool, Inc.'s flagship product inflates to 14 feet in diameter, with 22-inch inflated walls, and holds approximately 1,075 gallons of water (about 20 full bathtubs). Made from rugged whitewater raft material, the pool is designed to withstand years of rambunctious play and swimming. When deflated and rolled up for storage, it weighs about the same as an average Labrador Retriever (70 lbs). Its namesake is the number one most popular dog in the U.S. according to The American Kennel Association.
"There are simply no other dog pools on the market that compare," says James Hendrick, President and Inventor of The Ultimate Dog Pool. "Since dog beaches and swimming holes are few and far between, dog enthusiasts have been limited to kiddie pools and a few other products marketed as "dog pools" that are too shallow for even medium size dogs to swim or exercise."
This is the first in a line of products that the company is planning to release. In addition to branded products such as toys, swimming vests and an optional ramp, they will soon be offering larger and smaller versions of the inflatable pool to accommodate various breeds and sizes.
Mr. Hendrick is no stranger to start up ventures. He is the President and Founder of JTP Restaurant Group, which owns and operates five establishments in Manhattan. His and his wife's two yellow labs, Buddy and Girl, are the inspiration for their latest venture. "It was such a great day when we received the first prototype as they just didn't want to get out of the pool. You could actually see the smiles on their faces! This is a gift we gave to our dogs and we are now happy to share it with others."
The Labrador Retreat will be available this spring for purchase at an introductory price of $499 online at www.theultimatedogpool.com, where visitors may also see demonstration and instructional videos. The Ultimate Dog Pool, Inc. will also make the pools and accessories available to customers in retail stores in the near future.
"We have been amazed at how much interest has come from around the world via Facebook, YouTube and our Website; people are very excited about this product. The thousands of responses and questions online have been an invaluable tool for us to develop the pool collectively with fellow dog lovers, experts and future customers. We are very proud of this product and we know this is going to bring a lot of joy to a lot of dogs."
Look for The Ultimate Dog Pool, Inc.'s Labrador Retreat to make a big splash this spring! Five dollars of each purchase will be donated to New Spirit 4 Aussie Rescue – Florida Chapter, a fine organization that they are proud to support.
