The Pet Loo Giveaway

The Pet Loo

The Pet Loo

Have you heard about The Pet Loo?  Tobi, the product inventor is going to be on our show this week, so tune in to hear more about this wonderful product.  We are giving one away to one lucky reader/listener too!  See the instructions below and read more about The Pet Loo.

New York, NY  – We hear about negotiations surrounding austerity and debt in Greece and the perilous status of the Euro, while U.S. credit has recently been downgraded. But this global recession doesn’t deter Tobi Skovron,

This bold ambition is nothing new for Skovron, who thought of the idea when he was just 23 years old. At the time, he was living in a high rise apartment in his native Melbourne, Australia with his dog. He needed a solution to the constant demand of running up and down the stairs to take his pet outside. This need led to the creation of The Pet Loo, which Tobi and his wife Simone, an animal behavioral specialist, first launched in 2006 on the Australian hit TV Show “The Inventors” http://www.abc.net.au/tv/newinventors/txt/s1657033.html. It’s a show they won.

“Success didn’t just happen. I made it happen. Realizing the U.S. market has 170 million cats and dogs, I literally lugged my first Pet Loo prototype around the streets of New York City back in 2008 because I knew we needed to make our product the leader in the U.S. market. I was this Australian kid with big eyes and a dream and nothing was going to get in my way,” says Skovron, who ended up literally bumping into a chance meeting with his greatest mentor, a pet industry guru, in a Murray’s Bagels line in Manhattan.

Over the past year, Skovron’s sales revenues have increased 53 percent worldwide. Even more impressive, Skovron is using technology to keep a tight rein on overhead and operating costs, with the ability to expand to 1,000 times his revenue due to his investment in proprietary cloud technology. As fast as his mouse can operate is as fast as Skovron can process orders. Recently, he received an email from a Swedish customer requesting 190 Pet Loos. He processed that request, from his Los Angeles offices, seamlessly in under five minutes.

Although Skovron’s largest markets are the U.S., Australia and Canada, he is seeking new customers and distributors in Korea and Japan, among dozens of other countries. Still, his goal is not to stretch his business too thin, but to ensure he has a carefully thought out presence in each country.
