The Pet Teek Pet Carrier was voted “2nd place” in the “Best New Product” competition, “Small Animal Category,” at SuperZoo 2008 (The National Show for Pet Retailers held September 9-11 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas).
The Pet Teek™ Pet Carrier is the only carrier available that offers you comfort, style and security for both you and your pet. Say goodbye to uncomfortable and unattractive pet carriers! Wear your beloved animal against your chest (and close to your heart!), and without having to sacrifice your back.
The Pet Teek™ Pet Carrier is designed with 2 stylish fabric pouches that rest comfortably on both shoulders and are connected with a sliding support band across your back. This chiropractor-recommended design allows you to carry your small pet (up to 25 lbs) snugly and safely against your body. Voila! Your hands are free and your little guy can view the world from a safe height, knowing you’re right there beside him.
Wearing the Pet Teek™ is as easy as throwing a bone – no wrestling with snaps, buckles, clasps, bulky material, metal, or plastic. Slip it over your head and go! Wearing your pets in the Pet Teek™ Pet Carrier enables them to join you while you travel, shop, or walk larger pets. Plus, Pet Teek™, made with 100% cotton, and soon to be Organic, comes in 5 colors, has a free matching bandana, and can be worn in three different positions, so you and your pets can travel in style.
The Pet Teek™ Pet Carrier is ideal for pets with special needs. The number of pets with disabilities and chronic diseases, such as missing limbs, arthritis, diabetes and heart disease, is on the rise. Studies have shown that wearing a baby in a carrier is beneficial for bonding and development; at Pet Teek, we believe that pets are our babies and recognize that they, too, benefit from the comfort of hearing our heartbeats while also getting the sensory nourishment they need and deserve.
Veterinarian Alison Birken, D.V.M. of Miami, FL says, “The Pet Teek™ Pet Carrier is ideal for nurturing and bonding with small pets, fostering a sense of security. The Pet Teek™ is especially useful in helping adopted puppies adjust to their new surroundings and bond with their owners.”
The Pet Teek™ Pet Carrier (petteek.com) is a modified version of the unique Baby K’tan™ Baby Carrier. Both double-sling designed carriers were invented by two couples in Florida looking for a better way to wear their special needs children. The Pet Teek™ is one of the only pet carriers that have been tested and approved to meet all of the highest baby safety standards, including those regulated by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the Federal Hazardous Substances Act (FHSA).
A portion of Pet Teek’s proceeds goes to Broadway Barks, the nonprofit foundation co-founded by Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore. Broadway Barks focuses on the plight of homeless animals, and educates pet owners on responsible pet ownership. “We are so happy to have Pet Teek on board!” says two-time Tony Award winner Bernadette Peters.
