Alex Fees: I’m Alex Fees for Small Business Television, SBTV.com. We are on location in Baltimore at the 2009 Pet Industries Spring Trade Show. It is brought to you by H.H. Backer Associates, publishers of Pet Age Magazine.
Gaspar Rodriguez, tell me about your product, the K9 Claw.
Gaspar Rodriguez: Well, it is the all in one leash, it has a retractable leash, it is a built in Pooper Scooper with our manufacturers of refillable bags with the LED light for night time walks.
Alex Fees: So this where the bags go back here.
Gaspar Rodriguez: Yes they swivel into different positions, pull it out, put it over the claw when your dog uses the rest room, this won’t get tangled up, we retract it out, you pick up the dog waste, retracts the back, toss it into the trash while you’re walking your dog.
Alex Fees: Wow!
Gaspar Rodriguez: And we have two sizes, this is the large for dogs weighing up to 110 pounds and we also have a medium for dogs weighing 1-44 pounds. It’s all one hand, one butt touch of function and weighs one pound four ounces. So it’s all self contained here and this thing that you can put on your wrist then.
Gaspar Rodriguez: Yes, you just grab and go and walk your dog.
Alex Fees: So who is this designed for?
Gaspar Rodriguez: This is designed for the elderly who don’t have to bend down and pick up dog waste. This is for kids on roller blades when they’re out with their dogs having fun by the beach. It’ designed pretty much for everybody, everybody of all ages.
Alex Fees: Where can people get, I mean can they find this in retail stores somewhere, Gaspar?
