SuperZoo 2017 Recap

Another SuperZoo is in the books!
As one of the two largest industry trade shows (the other being the Global Pet Expo) this was a very important show for Happy Howie’s.

Not only did we get to speak to the most influential distributors and retailers in the industry, we got to meet in the confines of our brand new trade show booth! Our new show booth occupies 20 linear feet and screams “Come look at the Happy Howie’s Deli!” We had random attendees and exhibitors stopping by just to tell us how much they liked the new look!

Image is everything at shows like this. Our new look speaks volumes to our existing customers and our potential future business partners.

People were using the windowed deli display case in the center of the booth as their preferred meeting place. They got to see a selection of our many product forms arranged inside the case as they discussed our products and merchandising. It couldn’t have worked out better.

Dogs are allowed at this show, so we had the opportunity to see them react to our products. Some of the owners had to literally drag their dogs away from the booth after sampling our treats! Some of them actually circled back to have another snack! It’s funny to see the look on the owner’s face when the dog snaps up a sample of our Premium Meat Roll seconds after they say “My dog doesn’t eat treats, or much of anything else.”

It was great to meet and greet our growing family of dealers and distributors from around the country!

We are looking forward to doing this show again next year!

Magnum’s Happy Howie’s Story

As told by pet-parent: Mary Jo

I originally was introduced to Happy Howie’s Dog Treats from a dog supply store, Leone in Murrysville, PA. The lamb sausage sticks are his ABSOLUTE favorite treat—as you can see in this video:

Here is my dog Magnum, getting his favorite treat (Happy Howie’s lamb sausage treat), on his 7th Birthday!!!

Magnum is a male mixed breed, both Doberman and Shepherd or Labrador blend. I got him in 2006 from Action for Animals in Latrobe, PA when he was 3 months old.

Nothing has been more motivating for him than offering a lamb stick as a reward!!!!

I buy them direct from Happy Howie’s now and get them amazingly quick. I buy the 12” sausage links and the 4” sausage links (easier to take with me to the park).


Here is the day I brought him home, at 3 months old.


Here he is at 7 years old.


And now, at 12 years old.

Also, my good friend has a Yorkie, named Sweat Pea who loves the lamb sticks. The 4” sausages are more her size, although she has been known to tackle the 12” sausages at Christmas!


This is his friend, Sweet Pea, with her birthday present—a 12” Lamb sausage treat. So you can see how tiny she is!!!!

Thanks for making all your products and my dog so happy! All his friends too! Any of them that got one, LOOOOVVVVEEEDDD them!

Global Pet Expo 2017

Global Pet Expo is the biggest Pet Industry gathering of the year—Pet Retailers, Distributors and Manufacturers from all over the world turn out in large numbers for this annual event. The 2017 show, March 22–24th at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, was no exception!

I’m happy to report that the Global Pet Expo was a huge success for Happy Howie’s! We prominently featured our merchandising tools at this year’s show, including the Happy Howie’s Doggy Deli Floor Display, and our new Happy Howie’s Deli Snack Station. Both of these displays offer our retailers an easy and efficient way to offer our products as impulse sales, and were met with enthusiastic approval by the trade! We were excited to write an unusually large number of orders at Global this year (mostly display assortments).

Many of our existing customers stopped by to see us, as well as numerous new faces. We even had the opportunity to sample our treats to the many canines in attendance!

I have been attending this event for many, many years. This was by far the busiest I have ever seen this show!

The Pet industry is alive and well!

—Wayne Whitney, Happy Howie’s National Sales Manager
