WILTON, Conn., BRENTWOOD, NY, & POMPANO BEACH, FL, July 16, 2008 - Nano Pet Products, LLC, a Wilton, Connecticut-based company dedicated to bringing cleaner and healthier pet products to pet owners worldwide through Dog Gone Smart™ nanotechnology, has added Royal Pet Supplies, one of the nation’s largest independent pet supply distributors based in Brentwood, Long Island, New York, and
Pompano Beach, Florida, to meet increasing demand for the company’s revolutionary new
Dog Gone Smart™ Bed and Dog Gone Smart™ Wear product lines.<br/>
“Now, our innovative pet products will be readily available coast to coast,” said Chris Onthank, managing member and founder of Nano Pet Products, LLC. He added, “Royal Pet’s enthusiasm for our nanotechnology and product durability demonstrates their dedication to the well-being of pets and the increasing needs of pet owners nationwide.”

They deliver to customers on the Eastern Seaboard from Maine to Florida and as far west as Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee, and ship to all other regions, including South America, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia. Nano Pet Products, LLC has already realized brisk initial sales and positive feedback from consumers.
“We carry thousands of pet products but Nano Pet’s Dog Gone Smart™ line of pet beds and pet apparel caught our attention because of the unique nature of the fabric and protection technology” explained Royal Pet Supplies Senior Buyer, Mark Whitney. He added, “When we tested the dog beds, we were impressed by the remarkable durability and washability of the product. We look forward to seeing additional applications of the technology in the near future.”
According to The American Pet Products Manufacturers Association, Inc.’s (APPMA) Americans will spend more than $43.4 billion on pets in 2008, a 5.5 percent increase from 2007 which is also more than double what pet owners spent a little more than a decade ago.
Nano Pet Products, LLC offers more than 22 styles and sizes of The Dog Gone Smart™ Bed, including round, rectangular (both available with Sherpa top), donut, crate pad, and memory therm, each in six different colors. All Dog Gone Smart™ Beds use hollow core slick fiber fill that some of the world’s finest pillows are made of, which also allows the dog to nest, yet has wonderful loft and rebounds when the dog leaves its bed. The beds are priced between $24.95 and $129.95.
Dog Gone Smart™ Wear offers two styles in more than 12 sizes, five different colors, and is priced between $35 and $65. Owners will find that the jacket is an attractive and cost-effective option that is hygienic, easy to clean and looks like new, year after year.
