Introducing THE LAB, a “Show Within the Show” at America’s Family Pet Expo

This year, America’s Family Pet Expo will introduce an exciting new educational and social event called THE LAB. This “show within the show” is designed to connect pet owners and pet product brands in an interactive and innovative way, offering attendees insight into the latest trends in pet nutrition, behavior, and more. This can’t-miss event may be accessed with a General Admission ticket to the Pet Expo.

At THE LAB, attendees will have the chance to experiment with products they may have never known they needed and mingle with brand representatives, pet industry professionals, and other pet owners. Some of the cutting-edge new products and technologies on display at interactive booths will include:

  • Want to prepare healthy, delicious meals for your beloved pooch at home? JustFoodForDogs, which creates hand-crafted, whole-food meals for dogs, will be offering cooking demonstrations and showing attendees how to whip up nutritious meals that have been proven in university studies to make canines healthier. Recipes and cooking instructions will be provided!
  • The Litter Genie®. This innovative cat litter disposal system offers a hassle-free solution for eliminating kitty odors in your home. Representatives from the company will be giving away Litter Genie Pails, Jackson Galaxy books and t-shirts, Amazon gift cards, and more!
  • Basepaws Cat DNA Test. The world’s first at-home cat genetics test enables pet parents to determine their cats’ breeds and traits, which can ultimately be used to determine unique feline habits and health. Created with a mission to support genetic research for better cat care, the Basepaws Cat DNA Test will be featured on Shark Tank on Sunday, April 28.
  • TEEF! Health. TEEF! offers a simple, natural prebiotic solution for balancing the bacteria in your dog’s mouth—thereby promoting stronger teeth, healthier gums, fresher breath, and a longer lifespan for your furry friend.

In addition to these ground-breaking products, THE LAB will feature engaging workshops and speakers. For example, representatives from Fear Free Happy Homes will be offering free consultations on how to reduce problem behaviors and improve your pet’s emotional well-being through training. Ever wanted to meet a canine celebrity? Now is your chance! TAiLS & toys will be introducing attendees to Tinkerbelle, an adorable papillon-maltese mix who has achieved internet fame and been photographed with top models, fashion designers, and other celebrities, including Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift. As a social media influencer with over 200,000 followers on Instagram, Tinkerbelle was listed as one of the Most Entrepreneurial Dogs in America by Entrepreneur!
