Cardinal To Sponsor APDT Conference
Cardinal Pet Care will sponsor the 2019 Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) Conference on Oct. 30 to Nov. 2. The Azusa, Calif-based manufacturer, which will exhibit at Booth #511/509, will also offer samples of products from its new dog treat brand, ONLY Healthy Source.
A key product from the new brand, ONLY Healthy Source 2-in-1 Training Treat and Meal Mixer Bacon Recipe, will be featured in the Welcome Bag that conference attendees receive upon arrival. The product can serve dual functions as both a training treat and a mixer that can be added to a pup’s food to enhance flavor. A dog treat from Cardinal Pet Care’s Pet Botanics line will also be included in the Welcome Bag, Pet Botanics Mini Training Reward Chicken Flavor Dog Treats.
In addition, Cardinal Pet Care will sponsor the Wednesday Break at the APDT conference, providing snacks for human attendees, as well as ONLY Healthy Source dog treats for any canines at the event and for trainers to take back home with them.
The ONLY Healthy Source line includes: Organic Training Treats (Beef, Chicken); 2-in-1 Training Treat/Meal Mixer (Bacon, Chicken); Roasted Tenderloin Bites (Chicken); and Crunchy Rooster Combs.
“As a company that has always engaged very closely with professional dog trainers, we’re proud and honored to be a sponsor of this premier industry event,” said Tony de Vos, president of Cardinal Pet Care. “We are also very eager to get feedback from trainers about our new ONLY Healthy Source dog treat brand. In addition to being a highly effective training tool, the new brand was developed to address what today’s trainers and pet parents have been telling us they want in a dog treat in terms of healthy ingredients and sourcing.”
The brand’s name reflects its focus on using only the healthiest sources of nutrition as well as its targeted distribution only through the independent retail channel. Its products are made with family recipes in smaller batches for a homemade taste.
