The pet oral care market is estimated to grow to nearly $1B by 2020 - it's ripe for innovation.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) April 19, 2018
Fetch for Pets, Arm & Hammer’s long-time partner in developing pet products, is seeking new, innovative products to help improve the dental care regimen and overall health of our canine companies, launching the Doggy Dental Care Challenge with invention community Quirky.
The market for canine dental care products has exploded over the past decade, with dozens of new and old players launching everything from treats to toys all designed to help our four-legged friends maintain a healthy mouth. According to Packaged Facts, the pet oral care market is estimated to grow to nearly $1 billion by 2020. Arm & Hammer is looking to continue to grow their market share by introducing new and innovative products – and they’re tapping into the power of community-led invention with Quirky.
Arm & Hammer has identified real challenges pet owners face to guide Quirky’s community of more than 1 million users to discover solutions for. From the need to accommodate various sized breeds to the goal of making the dental care process seamless and easy without having to stick your hands in your dogs mouth, making him uncomfortable. Anyone can use this inspiration, tap into their creativity and share a product concept that will keep our furry friends mouths’ clean. Following the close of the competition, Arm & Hammer will select a winning product or products, which will be developed for retail by Fetch for Pets.
This isn’t the first time Quirky’s invention community has created a breakthrough product for pets; the Quirky Pawcet, a drinking fountain for dogs, was invented by Quirky member and dog owner, Tony Lytle to keep his dogs hydrated while playing outside during the summer.
The Quirky and Arm & Hammer Doggy Dental Challenge is live and accepting submissions until May 18th, 2018.
