Demand for Nose-It! K-9 Pet Ball soars after TV coverage

Television coverage during Crufts has created a surge of interest in the American-made Nose-It! K-9 Pet Ball, distributed in the UK by AmPet Products.

Sales and Marketing Director Alex Wilson and his Siberian Husky Arapahoe made their television debut on Channel 4 discussing ways to help mentally stimulate dogs.

“The Nose It! Ball was a big hit at Crufts and it was great to see Arapahoe demonstrate the toy on national television,” said Alex. “This is one of the most exciting dog toys on the market and I use it extensively with clients’ dogs as well as distributing them to pet retailers throughout the UK.

“There has been huge interest since the TV appearance, especially with retailers visiting our stand at PATS Sandown.”

The Nose-It! K-9 Pet Ball is a ‘toy with purpose’, keeping pets engaged, moving and entertained for hours. It is designed with an intuitive one-roll-at-a-time design which keeps pets in control and rewards them as they ‘nose-it’ around.

Besides being super interactive, it helps channel a pet’s energy, anxiety, boredom or bad behavior, making the toy a fun, purposeful and entertaining product. It can also be useful to slow down fast eater.

Jim Ruder, who manufactures the ball in America, said: “We are very excited that the ball is selling well in the UK. Here in the US the canine version is one of a range of Nose-It! Balls that includes a separate range for horses and one for use in zoos. This is a wonderful product to help lower the stress level of dogs and also be part of a pet’s overall wellness programme.”

The Nose-It! K-9 Pet Ball is available in Red or Blue, and Flex (stronger with less Flex) or Flex Plus (designed to Flex and give). The ball holds up to two cups of dry food, is dishwasher safe, and is made with FDA food grade material.
