It’s taken me an entire week to get my act together after attending SuperZoo 2018. It was three days of fun, networking and pets! I thought for sure that I’d be overwhelmed by the experience, but quite the opposite was true. At SuperZoo I was in my element – pet blogger heaven, you could call it. I couldn’t possibly cover ALL of the brands I visited and connected with in one blog post, but I’d love to share some noticeable trends, new brands that I discovered, as well as familiar brands that I was excited to meet in person. You won’t want to miss some of these SUPER cool companies and products!
After many years of wanting to attend SuperZoo in Las Vegas, this summer Wynston and I are finally going! We’re making the trek from Arizona to Nevada on June 25, 2018 to be a part of the great pet industry trade show. While my role is media/blogger at the event, I’m super excited to be making connections with other bloggers and brands! The part I look most forward to is expanding my knowledge of the pet industry. Alongside me will be Wynston, of course, because no adventure is fun without him!
So far we’ve earned a couple of sponsors for our trip, but we’re looking for more! We’re in search of brands who want to get their name in front of tens of thousands of people. Dog Mom Days was recently featured in The Arizona Republic, and we’ll be on ABC Las Vegas news on the last day of SuperZoo. You could say we’re gaining a lot of traction as of late 🙂
This year has been full of “firsts” for us, so why stop now? You all know that I’m obsessed with pet events, and my goal this fall has been to check out new ones that I’ve never been to before. Wynston and I were blessed to get the invitation to attend Strut Your Mutt Phoenix, a national pet event hosted by Best Friends Animal Society. Wynston would be making a celebrity appearance and taking photos with attendees at the Instapet Tent, along with Instagram stars Stogie and Princess Lily Grumps. Count us in!!! That same evening was Dogtoberfest, a small local event a few miles from our house, and I wanted to be sure to check that out as well. Here’s a recap (with lots of photos of course) of the events!
Pet event season is well underway now that it’s fall in Arizona. I’m a sucker for events that revolve around animals, so if there’s a pet event happening, you can bet I’ll most likely be there! I have rounded up the notable Arizona pet events coming up for the 2017 fall and winter season.
Fall in Arizona means it’s pet event season! Unlike a majority of the country, October kicks off weekly pet events around the Grand Canyon State because the weather is finally cooling down. Barktoberfest, which benefits Friends for Life Animal Rescue in Gilbert, is the perfect way to begin the next few months of pet event fun. The 18th annual Barktoberfest was once again a success, and this year I was able to share the joy with my mom and her dog Cooper! Although it was a bit toasty, Wynston and I had a blast.
