Healthy, Hydrating, Treat
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
As entrepreneurs, our best brainstorming sessions often include some form of hydrating treat for ourselves. One day, we looked around and realized how many of us bring our pets along for the ride – whether it’s for a brainstorm session or a fat-blasting mountain hike. But when we want to treat our faithful companions, we too often fill them up with calories when what they need is hydration. The idea for Petrol was born, and pet owners resoundingly said they would welcome a hydrating option to treat their pups. After working with a veterinary nutritionist, we validated the concept in studies that show dogs lap up Petrol 4:1 over regular water, and now we’re available nationwide.
What makes your product special?
We’re the only all-natural hydrating treat available for pups without excess calories. Because Petrol is a treat and not a meal replacement, owners can give their pups Petrol anytime – in any quantity – without worrying about preservatives, artificial colors or flavors or extra calories. A 12-ounce bottle of Petrol contains only 8 calories! Petrol is bringing the evolution of pet hydration to thoughtful pet owners Giving dogs a “drink treat” may feel like a different approach. She’s happily lapped up water for years now, so why change it up? Until now, pet owners simply didn’t have a choice. But think about how our human habits for hydration have evolved as we’ve learned the importance and benefits of hydration. Remember the water fountain in the hallway between classes? Today, kids carry a water bottle 24/7, and adults enjoy a robust marketplace of tasty ways to hydrate. Petrol brings that evolution of hydration to pets. Formulated in consultation with a veterinary nutritionist, Petrol fills your dog’s tank with vitamins, nutrients and all-natural flavoring that hydrate nutritiously – so it tastes like a special treat with the benefit of hydration. Whether it’s a bedtime treat or a post-run lap session, your dog can have as little or as much of a 12-ounce bottle of Petrol as she wants, because the entire bottle only has eight calories! Just a taste? No problem! The re-sealable bottle lets you pop the leftovers into your fridge or cooler so she can have more later. Petrol lets your dog feel special while you feel confident you’re giving her all-natural, nutritious ingredients that will add wag to her tail instead of junk to her trunk.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
We believed we had a groundbreaking product to bring to market, but we needed validation from the best focus groups of all: Pet owners and their dogs! We’ve felt so rewarded to help pet owners understand there’s a healthy way to treat our pets while providing much-needed hydration. It’s been exciting to see people realize they don’t have to give a dog a biscuit to show love, encouragement or appreciation. Petrol is a tasty, all-natural treat without those excess calories, and it’s addressing a real need of all dogs: hydration. Listen, pets don’t lie. They may love all of our flaws unconditionally, but they will not eat or drink something they don’t like. So to see pups prefer Petrol 4:1 over regular water again and again – talk about exhilarating! We still get goose bumps every time a dog darts for a tasty bowl of Petrol. We’re also incredibly proud of how quickly we were able to grow from a crowd-funded project on Indiegogo.com to national distribution through Amazon.com. We’ve helped hydrate dogs in 22 states, and we’re dedicated to reaching 28 more!
