Seven major suppliers of British pet care products will be exhibiting their latest innovations in the British pavilion at Global Pet Expo in Orlando, Florida (20 to 22 March 2019).
Among the new products on offer will be an effective chicken coop locking door kit, natural foods for small animals, microfibre dog drying coats and towels, grooming products including scented colognes, dog beds, collars, life-enhancing superfood for dogs as well as the latest packaging solutions.
The British pavilion is being organised by PetQuip, the UK pet trade association, for the ninth consecutive year. The British-branded and themed pavilion area will be located in the heart of the show floor and will include a British petcare information booth (4970) that will enable overseas buyers to source thousands of British products free of charge.
The British companies and their products are as follows:
ChickenGuard (Booth 4867), manufacturer of the innovative, automated chicken coop door opener, will be launching a new Locking Door Kit that is compatible with all versions of the ChickenGuard door opener. The Locking Door’s innovative self-locking mechanism provides greater protection against predators as well as peace of mind and additional free time for chicken owners. With seven million chicken owners in America, ChickenGuard is leading the way in helping to keep their chickens safe.
Christies Global (Booth 4873) is recognised as one of Europe’s fastest growing grooming product ranges. New to the US grooming market will be the Groom Professional brand. The range includes shampoos and conditioners designed especially for different coat types, as well as refreshingly scented colognes and coat sprays to detangle, add shine and give body to the coat. Proudly innovative, Christies Global is continuously bringing new products to the grooming industry.
Digby & Fox (Booth 4871) will be showcasing its full range of dog equipment including new dog beds, collars and leads, all manufactured using unique colours and designs from tweeds and prints, as well as coloured leather accessories for all breeds of dog.
Henry Wag (Booth 4972) is a first time exhibitor at Global Pet Expo. The company will be introducing its new range of microfibre dog drying coats which quickly wick water from a dog’s fur to leave them fresh and dry. Also new will be a noodle glove towel that effectively removes dirt and water following muddy walks. Henry Wag will also be exhibiting new additions to its travel range. They are a Multimat travel rug to use at home, in the car or on location, and a Travel Snuggle bed for more adventurous travellers.

Rockster (Booth 4966) will be exhibiting its range of genuine life-enhancing superfood for dogs. Created originally to transform the health of a street dog rescued from Naples who rejected commercial pet food, Rockster has been hailed as ‘more than just food’.
