Press Release: March 12, 2018
Petix, manufacturer of WizSmart Dog Pads, announced today a retail partnership with Kriser’s Natural Pet, a multi-unit pet retailer specializing in natural pet food, supplies and grooming. As of March 1, 2018, WizSmart dog pads will be available for purchase at Kriser’s 45 retail locations spanning across Chicagoland, Southern California, Denver, Fort Collins, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Washington D.C. and Virginia.
WizSmart dog pads provide an all-in-one, premium dog and puppy pad solution for new dog owners and those frustrated by previous experiences with other pee pad options. These pads have been tested for performance and quality of the highest standard by SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, which found that WizSmart pads outperform other selected brands in terms of absorbent capacity, acquisition rate, and the pad’s ability to retain liquid. WizSmart pads also feature patented stay put adhesive tabs that can be used to secure the pad to the floor and the wall at a 90° angle, creating a perfectly placed target for male dogs.
“Partnering with Kriser’s is a natural fit for Petix given that we both share the same commitment to providing pet products, services and education that are of the highest quality and standard. Sharing this passion to help facilitate the well-being of pets and their relationships with their owners, we look forward to serving Kriser’s customers by offering them a premium solution for disposable dog pee pads,” stated Krister Holm, General Manager, N.A., Petix.
WizSmart is the recipient of the Hamptons Pet Editor's Choice Award for “Smartest New Dog Care Product” given the company’s innovation in providing pets and their owners with a smarter, healthier disposable dog pad solution.
Petix will exhibit at the American Pet Products Association (APPA) and Pet Industry Distributors Association (PIDA) industry event, Global Pet Expo, March 21-23, 2018. Attendees can see a demonstration of WizSmart Dog Pads and receive information on becoming a WizSmart retail partner.
