PAMPERED PETS HAVE COLLARED THE MARKET
"It's a very entrepreneurial industry," said Doug Poindexter, executive vice president of the World Wide Pet Supply Assn., A lot of these products are the result of a pet owner figuring out something for their pet , seeing people love it and then deciding to market it." Consider bird lover Vickie Canepa, who launched her business Fetch-It Pets three years ago. Het best-selling invention: the Polly Wanna Piñata a colorful bird toy filled with dried fruit. Canepa was inspired when she saw the reaction of her winged pets when she brought a piñata home. "The birds got to it and they just tore it apart." Canepa introduced the $8 Polly Wanna Piñata last year at SuperZoo and sales have tripled since then.
