With Jessica Bruns, Head of Sales in Victoria Australia
Jess, you meet with pet retailers every day. What sort of response does The Pet Loo, and all other products in Pup-Pee Solutions range, get in the Australian market?
Pup-Pee solutions are a well known and trusted supplier. The majority of pet retailers in Victoria are aware of the benefits of The Pet Loo and associated products; however there are always extra advantages and benefits to point out.
I am in a unique position where I receive feedback from retailers (many of whom own the Pet Loo themselves) and a wide range of ‘end users’ such as breeders, elderly owners (and owners of elderly pets!) apartment dwellers, owners with large yards as well as everyday pet owners.
To me this just goes to show that The Pet Loo is a solution for a wide range of owners, not just those in apartments.
As for the enzyme technology, I am constantly amazed by the feedback and the sales figures of all products in the range. Both indicate to me that these products are being chosen by our end users as they know they are effective and safe for their whole family.
The reason our end users are making such wise choices is mainly to do with our retailers and the belief they have in the products, as most of our retailers have tried the products for themselves and have seen the results.
What do you believe the Australian market is ‘crying out’ for?
Pet ownership figures in Australia show that over 80% of households have at least one pet. This indicates to me a greater need to facilitate pet ownership across all lifestyles. This means providing products that make pet ownership easier and more practical for all Australians.
Innovative products are always in demand as lifestyles change. This is the beauty of our products, and our company. We are facilitating pet ownership for all across Australia and the world.
What do you like best about the product range?
I couldn’t say if I have a ‘favorite’ product, the thing I like best about our product range is the originality of our products. It is refreshing to go into the marketplace and offer something new and innovative to consumers, not only in Australia but around the world.
How do you find working with Tobi and Nathan?
Tobi and Nathan couldn’t really be more different in their approach to our business; however together they are a formidable team with a wealth of knowledge and information.
Nathan’s experience in the pet industry arms us with extensive sales and marketing strategies, as well as constant encouragement and advice.
Tobi brings the flair and passion to the business, he is the one who inspires us all with his hard work and dedication and his superior business knowledge.
What is it that you love most about your position within Pup-Pee Solutions?
I have the opportunity to deal with some of the best pet stores Australia wide and of course the common element between all stores is great staff. There are some very competent business owners and managers in our pet industry, as well as some of the best retail workers. Of course my passion for animals will always be the driving force behind my career, so I couldn’t work for a better, more pet friendly company.
How would you like to see Pup-Pee Solutions to grow in the Australian market?
I believe Pup-Pee solutions will be fundamental in the growth of the pet industry in Australia.I think in the future we will be introducing more new ideas and products to the market and I expect us to remain a leader in the pet industry, focusing on pet waste management and other essentials of pet ownership.
I will be very pleased to be part of the Pup-Pee team in the years to come, and look forward to the development and release of new products.
