Valencia, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2008
A California-based company is looking for a manufacturer to take on their new 'pet faucet' design named the Mia Princessa. The faucet -- designed by Mia Princessa & Brothers LLC, a company owned by 4 Miniature Dachshunds -- looks like a dog. It is complete with head, eyes, ears, and tail, and can be used in a kitchen, bathroom or any bar area. The Mia Princessa is designed specifically for pet owners, lovers and professionals as a means to show their love for their four-legged friends.
"There is no other manufacturer that I am aware of who has ever produced a faucet even remotely similar to the Mia Princessa," says Pamela Ruckelshausen founder, manager and chief human officer of the company.
Ruckelshausen has worked at a plumbing and electrical company for 18 years. Her inspiration for creating this product was her 4 Miniature Dachshunds: Mia, Rucks, Will and Brownie. She says that she named the company in their honor and elected them as the honorable president and vice presidents. As the chief human officer, Ruckelshausen assists her Dachshunds in running the company.
"This faucet is really about them and all the other four-leggeds in the world. They are the celebrities," Ruckelshausen remarked.
"The Mia Princessa introduces a whole new dimension to the pet fashion world. It's simply a way for us to honor them. It's a new passion and a new fashion. This faucet would make a great gift for any animal lover."
According to the American Pet Product Manufacturers Association, Americans own an estimated 74 million dogs. Once her faucet is available to the public, Ruckelshausen believes it will sell extremely well.
Rachel Monroe, a copywriter and marketing consultant for the pet industry, agrees. "The pet industry is growing at a phenomenal rate," Monroe said. "American's spend an estimated $40 billion a year on their pets. The industry is hungry for new designs and products. I think an item as unique as the Mia Princessa has a lot of potential."
Ruckelshausen has shared her design with several owners in order to get their feedback on her product. Renee Slick, who owns a Boston Terrier commented, "I think pet lovers everywhere will want one. Why have an ordinary faucet when you can have one that looks like your favorite pet."
Lynn Godish, also an owner, says the Mia Princessa is very tastefully done. "Today, people are more conscious of their four-legged friends and spend lots of money on grooming products, clothing, and vacation accommodations. So why not have your very own pet faucet? I think the Mia Princessa will do very well once it is put on the market," she added.
Ruckelshausen has a marketing proposal and several detailed drawings of her pet faucet. She is actively looking for a manufacturer who would be interested in producing her design. For more information or to schedule an interview with Pamela Ruckelshausen, you can call her at 661-373-3620.
