Natural Dog Company, Elements Brands’ most recent acquisition, partners with Skipper, a local in-home pet care company that continues to expand to several other U.S. cities. Together, the companies are kicking off the partnership at Skipper’s 21st Birthday Paw-ty on March 21, 2019 at Sycamore Brewing.

“We’re very excited to work with Skipper. Skipper and Elements Brands are both Charlotte start-ups, and with the addition of Natural Dog Company to our portfolio, we can both cater to those who want peace of mind when it comes to their pets. We’ve witnessed a rising trend in pet care and are very excited to help folks pamper their pets,” said Bill D’Alessandro, CEO of Elements Brands.

Skipper hosts its third birthday party, (21st birthday in dog years) at Sycamore Brewing on March 21, 2019. Natural Dog Company is giving away lots of free dog products and prizes, most notably, its all-natural dog balms — Paw Soother, Skin Soother, PawTection, Wrinkle Balm and Snout Soother. The natural healing balms are carefully formulated to heal dry, cracked or irritated dog paws, snouts or skin. In addition to being present at the event, Natural Dog Company is supplying free products to all of Skipper’s new clients as it expands in Dallas, Austin and soon, Atlanta.

“Charlotte is obviously a huge dog city and it’s awesome that we can work closely with another Charlotte start-up to not only provide dogs and dog owners of the Queen City with a fun and positive experience, but make their lives as pet owners a bit easier. We’re eager to work with Natural Dog Company and we know our customers will be just as excited to experience the well-known brand right alongside ours,” said Meggie, CEO of Skipper.

Skipper and Natural Dog Company invite the Charlotte community of dog lovers to come out to Skipper’s 21st Birthday Paw-Ty for free products, treats, dog services, giveaways and Sycamore beer on March 21, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
