Very Thankful Pups Love Pugz Shoes on “The Balancing Act”

Next Thursday might be Thanksgiving, but this week we are happy to inform you about a Davison-design that will be featured at 7 a.m. tomorrow on Lifetime TV’s “The Balancing Act.”

Mr. Davison and our client, Kay, along with her Pugz Shoes (as part of their “Dare to Invent” webisode) will be the featured guests on “America’s premier one-hour women’s morning show” tomorrow, November 15th.  The innovative episode will also be shown at 7 a.m. on Black Friday (you can watch before heading to the mall), November 22nd.

Our client and Michigan native, Kay, dreaded taking her two Shelties, Autumn Angel and Rough Spot, out in blustery, wet weather.  Her faithful friends would wind up with cold, snowy paws or even salt-soaked paws from treated roads and sidewalks.

“I needed something that would stay on and protect their paws… [Something to] keep their paws from getting dry and cracked,” Kay said.

Kay thought of a better way to protect her pups and brought her idea for doggie boots to Davison, where our creative team worked to design, develop and license her idea into Hugs Pet Products’ Pugz Shoes.

“I would advise [future inventors] to stay positive and do some research… Don’t get discouraged, it can happen,” said Kay.  “I’m a firm believer… nothing ventured, nothing gained.”

Following “The Balancing Act” episode, we’re giving our Facebook fans and Twitter followers the chance to win Pugz or any other innovative pet products!  By submitting a photo of their dog in Pugz or sharing why their dog needs a pair (well, um, 4 shoes), Davison fans will be entered to win a $100, $50 or $25 gift card to buy their very own Hugs Pet Products.

Tune in to Lifetime’s “The Balancing Act” tomorrow at 7 a.m. and email your clients to let them know about our Facebook and Twitter Pugz contest!**
