Products, Groomers Shine at Total Pet Expo

Posted: September 23, 2013, 1:00 p.m. EDT

Pet trade shows aren’t complete without competitions and awards. Backer’s Total Pet Expo had both, handing out honors for the most innovative products and to the top dog groomers.

The best product, as selected by a panel of judges, was the Orbee-Tuff Snoop from Planet Dog of Westbrook, Maine.

The translucent, squishy toy is designed to stimulate dogs’ brains through use of a deep crevice that conceals a treat. The 5-inch toy is available in orange or blue.
