Liz Masich – Group Show Director
Prior to joining Super Pet Expo, I could be found at Neeps Inc. as Vice President of their Pet Division, which included The Ferret Store, Activek9, Pet Care Central, Rabbit Central and The Kitty Store to name a few.
In May 2007, I joined Super Pet Expo when Neeps Inc. sold the pet division to Drs. Fosters & Smith. I had been a sponsor of Super Pet Expo for 5 years and I knew it was the very best pet expo out there.
I am what you would call ' an exhibitor's promoter." Meaning, I know firsthand how to maximize exhibiting investments. I also know the competitive show landscape and will be happy to advise you on the pet industry marketplace and how to succeed at our shows.
Not only have I managed a $4.5 million pet company, but I have exhibited in hundreds of pet events. These experiences will help us grow and more importantly, allow me to help our exhibitors be successful at Super Pet Expo!
My passion is helping people grow their pet business and I look forward to helping your business meet your marketing goals.
Alex Mason – Assistant Show Manager
Prior to joining the Super Pet Expo team I acted as Marketing Manager of the Dogtopia Daycare franchise. Our small start-up team propelled the franchise from a single unit to over twenty; which means one does not have the luxury of being one dimensional. I was afforded an amazing opportunity to learn multiple facets of marketing and business in general.
Spending hours in a tradeshow booth (including at the Super Pet Expo), building social media communities, and negotiating national sponsorships - I’ve been happy to work in various aspects of marketing and advertising. I believe it gives me great perspective on the challenges exhibitors face and an acute awareness of the need to make best use of every dollar spent.
Of all the pet events I worked, I found the Super Pet Expo to not only be one of the most financially beneficial, but also one of the most enjoyable. It’s a once a year opportunity to put your product or service in front of thousands of eager buyers within your targeted demo. The face-to-face time is invaluable.
I look forward to learning more about your unique business and partnering to make the Super Pet Expo your best marketing platform of the year!
Nov. 22 and 23 Dog Show in Reading....
The 2008 Kennel Club of Philadelphia Dog Shows will be held November 22 and 23 at the Greater Reading Expo Center in Reading, PA. Saturdayâs show will host the National Dog Show which is always televised after the Macy's Thanksgiving parade.
More info can be found at
There is a judging schedule posted for Saturday and Sunday which gives you the ring numbers and the show times for all the breeds.
They are having "Meet The Breed" at these shows. Different breeds are scheduled hourly during the shows so people can visit with owners of whatever breed is featured during that hour
Maybe they had mats already? Or
Maybe you aren't using the right brush or getting all the way through their coat when you brush. Are you using a "slicker" brush made for cats?
I suggest you re-post your question using "long haired cat grooming" in the title. That will attract the professional groomers and long-haired cat owners to your question. Also, repost again on Monday mid-morning when more people are reading.
Even if it is a bit pricey to go to the groomer, it's a good idea to get them to take care of the mats so you can start out fresh. The groomer can teach you how to brush them out properly to avoid this in the future
Up for educational discussion
I've become an avid reader of dog communication books and I love a good EDUCATIONAL debate (so no flaming without offering something of value please)
Let's discuss training techniques, specifically the alpha roll and other controversial techniques.
The public constantly needs a new story. As parenting techniques have dramatically changed in the last decade so has dog training. Some for the better and some not.
Along with the alpha roll being taboo the pennies in a soda can, squirt bottles and other techniques are now out dated. It's all about building a 'relationship' with your dog
