NIXA, Mo., Aug. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On Wednesday, August 10, Tether Tug took second place in the dog category from more than 820 new products at the SuperZoo New Product Showcase.
The Uber Tether Tug is an interactive toy for high-energy dogs. It consists of a knotted rope tug toy mounted on a rod secured to an in-ground base. The toy rotates 360 degrees so dogs can engage in active chase and tug play without the help of their owners. The rod can be removed from the base when not in use.
SuperZoo, the National Show For Pet Retailers, is a four-day event where over 15,000 pet industry professionals gathered for opportunities to network, improve their businesses and participate in events, educational sessions and competitions. Attendees voted for the best new products spanning eight categories.
"We are extremely honored to have been selected as one of the top products at this year's show. Many of the people that stopped by our booth saw us in the New Product Showcase and said we were one of the most unique toys at the show. We hope to continue that innovation as we release new products," says Matt Price, Tether Tug representative.
There's more to come for Tether Tug in the near future. The company plans to expand into select international markets, grow their retail footprint and online presence, and release more innovative products for pets, including a toy for cats.

About Tether Tug: Tether Tug is a small, Missouri-based dog toy company offering interactive toys for energetic dogs. The Tether Tug was invented by father-son duo Roger and Adam Huckfeldt for their three-legged dog Lizzie, who, like many active dogs, had so much energy that she always "outplayed" her owners. The first prototype was created with a broken fishing pole, then developed into a toy that came in a single size. Tether Tug is now available in five outdoor sizes and an indoor size for dogs of all sizes and activity levels to enjoy.
