Heart Pup on Shark Tank
Sling/ Scarf Dog Carrier - Episode 603 - 10/3/2014
|Heart Pup Sling|
available in several styles
The entrepreneur who invented and patented the very first scarf/ puppy sling, is Anastasia Heart, owner of the Heart Pup Sling, and the newest contestant to appear the Shark Tank in episode 603.
To get an idea how to correctly wear the Heart Pup, Heart put out this video demonstrating not only how comfortable it is to put on and wear, this also demonstrates zero complaint's from the little puppy dog going along for the ride.
The Heart Pup Slings are already available on Amazon with several styles to choose from. Anastasia also has a store front on the popular artist site Etsy with a perfect 5 Star Rating from 64 satisfied customers. The cost for a stylish Heart Pup ranges from $88.00 on up, with an average cost around $140.00 each. Heart also designed a leather collar with gold studded spike's to round off your fashion statement you can only achieve while wearing a Heart Pup Sling.
Heart Pup before the Shark Tank Update
As mentioned above, the Heart Pup Slings are already available in a wide range of styles, fabrics, etc. Normally this would be a good thing for a growing Brand to expand the product line-up, especially after proof-of-concept has been achieved. This will be interesting to see how many Heart Pups have been sold before Shark Tank Episode 603 airs this Friday night, and if it's enough to justify the inventory needed for the wide range of products already available.
As far as HeartPup getting a deal on the Shark Tank, this might be a tough sell if Anastasia doesn't have solid sales numbers to back up her patented puppy dog carrier. It's good to see she does have an Amazon Store with at least a few items available for Prime Members, (order is directly fulfilled by an Amazon Warehouse)but it's also hard to judge the overall success and demand for what's selling best.
All the slings I looked at are geared for women to wear, with none tailored for men. Not that I would ever wear one, I seriously doubt they make one big enough for an Alaskan Malamute anyway. Besides, I'm not carrying him anywhere, he's big enough to carry me. But who knows, maybe there's an untapped market to further expand the Puppy Sling concept for guys who would like a convenient way to also carry their little dogs.
No doubt there will be thousands of small dog owners watching the show who will love this quality made product. Hopefully, Anastasia has plenty of Heart Pup Slings on hand to satisfy the huge demand from all the Shark Tank Fans headed her way very soon.
Be sure to watch this Brand New Shark Tank Episode 603 starting at 8 p.m. (eastern)and see if the Heart Pup Slings make a deal with the Sharks.
