Previously known as AutoDogMug by Highwave, Family-owned brand continues to impress dog owners after going viral on TikTok earlier this year
AUSTIN, Texas /PRNewswire/ — Springer Pets, known for their Springer Travel Bottle, will be featured on the award-winning show Shark Tank later this week. Their innovation and design allows consumers to keep their dog hydrated during any excursions, making it easy for pets to drink from the attached bowl without wasting a drop. It’s 100% leak-tight and made from BPA-free plastic. The included carabiner allows the bottle to easily clip onto belt loops, backpacks, and other accessories. The product comes in several different sizes and color selections, so buyers can customize the product to their dogs’ needs. Springer Pets will also be launching a new innovative leash collection soon.
Springer was founded by Shannon Ross, a pet industry pioneer with a background in marketing and product development, who comes from a long line of inventors and entrepreneurs. After Shannon moved to Austin and got a dog, she was discouraged by the lack of dog products that were innovative and beautiful. She decided to create her own and launched Springer in August 2021. Shannon, alongside her brother, Griffin, her mom, Diana and her dad, Gary, created the brand with four key principles in mind: originality, integrity, community, and sustainability. Currently, 1% of every purchase is donated to a nonprofit of the consumers’ choice. The brand works with the Austin Parks Foundation, Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado, 5 Gyres, Los Padres Forest Watch and LA Neighborhood Land Trust.
“We are so thrilled to share Springer Pets with a broader audience on Shark Tank. We believe that the Springer Travel Bottle is a sustainable solution that allows people to truly bring their pets anywhere with them. Our dedication to sustainability and efficiency will hopefully resonate with everyone watching.” Shannon Ross, Founder
Springer is backed by a family history of innovation, going all the way back to 1983. It started with a company called Highwave, where Shannon’s father Gary Ross began designing smart, sustainable products for an active lifestyle. More than 35 years and 40 patents later, Gary’s two kids, Shannon and Griffin and his wife Diana started Springer to bring innovation to dog friendly designs.
