MY CANINE KIDS is seeking sales representatives in the USA and all International venues.
For more information contact:
Carole Cusumano or Donna Haines
My Canine Kids
E-mail: sales@mck-pet.com

The creator of the original Velcro®soft step harness is back with a revolutionary new line of dog products, my canine kids. Carole Cusumano, the founder of cloak & dawggie, has merged the core of what customers loved about her Velcro®soft step-in harness with her innovative modern technology PRECISION FIT™ to create a new line of canine products.

PRECISION FIT ™ technology is a win for both the retailer and the consumer. Solving the design challenge of sizing product for dogs, the PRECISION FIT ™ harness design uses side sliplock buckles in combo with Velcro® to adjust to your dog’s unique size. The outerwear uses Velcro® at the neck and girth. This technology allows the Retailer to carry less SKUs while actually meeting the demand of more canine sizes and shapes. PRECISION FIT ™ has reduced traditional inventory from 12 SKU sizes to 5 in harnesses and 7 in parkas. My canine kids also offers an exclusive line of teacup sizes broadening reach even further. PRECISION FIT ™ is a win for the customer too! This extends the product life for a growing pet, and allows the product to be used all year round, no matter what other outwear your dog is wearing.

My canine kids has been test marketed with key retailer partners since 2013 and has resulted in a hugely successful track record. My canine kids also aims to be accessible for all retail partners offering affordable minimums and an efficient replenishment plan.

Looking forward, my canine kids wants to continue to offer unique products. Much of the core product line is made in the USA, and the brand will be launching an exclusive USA made capsule collection in the coming year.
