Headquartered in Fairport Harbor, Ohio, OurPet’s Company designs, produces, and markets an extensive line of innovative, high-quality accessory and consumable pet products in the United States and overseas. Dr. Steve Tsengas founded the Company in 1995 with the goal of promoting pet health, well-being, and owner/pet interaction. OurPet’s Company designs their products to satisfy instinctual animal needs, inspire inventive play, as well as aid in the health and welfare of companion animals.
OurPet’s Company began operations with the philosophy of combining “high tech” engineering expertise related to materials and manufacturing with a “high touch” approach to pet health, behavior and nutrition, in addition to pet owners themselves. This philosophy is based on developing and marketing proprietary, innovative, quality, affordably priced products for improving the health, safety, comfort, and enjoyment of pets.
The Company’s first product line in 1995 was the “Big Dog Feeder.” The Big Dog Feeder provides a healthier, more comfortable feeding position for larger breed dogs. This product was immediately successful for the Company.
Another example of the company’s product lines is their Healthy Pet Diner™ 4″, 8″ and 12″ feeders. They provide economical, healthy, elevated solutions for all size pets. The Healthy Pet Diner features a self-watering system and a ridge to keep food and water off the floor. They are aesthetically designed and provide ergonomically correct feeding for improved digestion and posture.
Along with an array of other products, OurPet’s Company offers their Store-N-Feed™ Diners. Store-N-Feed® is a modern, healthy dining system for medium and large breed dogs. Its adjustable height improves digestion, posture, as well as feeding comfort of senior dogs or those with bone and joint disease.
OurPet’s Company aims to introduce, continually, numerous new products each year. They offer approximately 300 proprietary products which include healthy feeding systems, interactive toys, healthy consumables, and cat and dog maintenance solutions. They have been granted 33 U.S. patents and an additional 60 are pending. They have also obtained 24 trademarks and have an additional 14 pending.
The Company markets their diverse product lines through pet specialty distributors and retail chains, grocery chains, mass retailers, catalogs, and E-commerce websites. Their international sales in the United Kingdom, Europe, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, and other countries are through local, independent representatives/distributors.
In February, OurPet’s Company announced the official launch of Clipnosis™ Gentle Calming Clip (Clipnosis Clip). Clipnosis Clip is a safe, painless, drug-free product that helps to calm cats under stressful situations. Under independent testing, OurPet’s Company confirmed that eighty percent of 93 million cats in the United States could benefit from the Clipnosis Clip.
