Every year, SuperZoo – the National Show for Pet Retailers attracts over 15,000 pet industry professionals from across the U.S. and around the world. SuperZoo has been named one of Trade Show Executive magazine’s (TSE) Fastest Growing 50, TSE’s Gold 100 and Trade Show News Networks’ (TSNN) 25 Fasting Growing Trade Shows, and sets the industry standard for showcasing and rewarding the latest pet product innovations and emerging industry trends.
This year’s First place winner for “Best New Dog Product” is Muffin’s Halo for Blind Dogs. Inspired by a Dogmother’s love for her 15 year old blind toy poodle named Muffin who went blind several years ago. Silvie Bordeaux is making her dreams come true by creating a movement for blind dogs globally with her critically acclaimed invention, Muffin’s Halo. This 3 piece must-have device helps blind dogs of any size transition by acting as a buffer protecting them from bumping into hard surfaces by re-directing them.
This twice-patented product that is highly recommended by animal ophthalmologists and Veterinarians, comes in colorful fashionable styles in all sizes, that brings forth awareness for blind dogs. The Angel Wing signifies "protection and guidance." The Quarterback style symbolizes "star of the team who has his blind-side covered.” The Butterfly Wing means freedom to "fly" again and its new “My Blind Dog” is a hip unisex style.
America’s Favorite Celebrity Veterinarian, Dr. Marty Becker said “I was recently sent a review product called Muffin’s Halo to try, and it blew me away enough that it became one of my Top New Products of the year. These wings and halo help my blind dog ‘see’.”
Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan’s Cesar’s Way recently featured pawpreneur, Silvie Bordeaux for her tireless efforts in bringing forth awareness for blind dogs and for donating countless Muffin’s Halos to blind dogs in shelters and rescues to make them more adoptable. When equipped with her halo, it allows a visually impaired canine to navigate bump-free in any new environment, making it easier for them to adapt quickly, with more confidence.
Blindness in dogs is commonly caused by cataracts, glaucoma, SARDS, trauma, retinal diseases and diabetes. While any breed can be affected, the following pure breeds are more prevalent than mixed breeds to genetically be inclined to develop cataracts: Cocker Spaniel, Poodle, Siberian Husky, Schnauzer, Old English Sheepdog, Golden Retriever, Maltese, Shih Tzu, Yorkshire Terrier, Labrador, just to name a few.
NBC News recently reported that “The American Pet Products Association estimates $60.59 billion will be spent on pets in 2015, up about 25 percent from five years ago. More U.S. households own dogs than any other pet. They tend to be the most expensive domestic animal. Basic annual expenses per dog are expected to reach $1,641.”
Muffin's Halo also made "Top 10 Pet Inventions" on Discovery Channel's Daily Planet Show. Here is video link to the Muffin's Halo story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njNCKXyojUY
