Jorge Gutierrez is a dog lover from Colombia, and he wanted to celebrate his native land with something for his dog. Not finding the right product, he created it himself three years ago. Now his company, PatriaPet, is offering vendors the opportunity to sell dog collars and leashes celebrating the national pride and cultural heritage of a wide range of flea market and swap meet shoppers. These PatriaPet leashes and collars are decorated with the flags of a wide range of countries. Three sizes of collars and two sizes of leashes are available.
PatriaPet is making it easy with a new point of purchase display that is designed for a flea market selling space. “We are very excited about the PatriaPet POP unit. It reflects the fun, vibrant nature of our products,” says Gutierrez. The display comes as a stocked kit with 18 collars of varying sizes and three of each size leash. The starter kit sells for $142.50 and has a retail value of $297 when sold at the suggested retail price.
Gutierrez recently unveiled a wholesale version of his Web site, serving the vendors who want to place orders and find out more. “It’s a members only site,” he says. “It’s a wholesale site, so it is only for retailers.” The company features flag-inspired designs for 23 countries, from Brazil to the United States. PatriaPet also offers a dropship program for ecommerce dealers and an affiliate program for bloggers and Web sites. The company is also active on Facebok and Twitter.
