Minneapolis, MN (April 20, 2018) — Upstart dog gear company, Stunt Puppy, has hired Park City-based SIMBOL Communications as their public relations agency of record. Stunt Puppy is a group of outdoor industry experts who put their technical sourcing and design skills to use outfitting active dogs, with carefully thought-out products that enhance their day-to-day adventures and service works.

Because it’s never just a dog: This the conviction that drives Stunt Puppy. Having begun during a run with man’s best friend, the startup moved from a basement-run operation – making better collars and leashes than anything they could find elsewhere – to a global brand. Gear that moves in sync with the dog without restricting freedom, doesn’t twist or shift un-necessarily, and offers greater visibility is at the heart of making comfortable and safe gear for this Minneapolis-based company.

All of their innovative, well-thought-out products – like a high-vis, waterproof, stink-free collar, for instance – have a design DNA that employs a deep understanding of the behavior and physiology of dogs and how that impacts dogs’ lives in our human world. The connection between man and dog is one of the oldest relationships in the history of humankind. The goal at Stunt Puppy is to build gear that enhances this connection, creating better experiences for both dogs and their people.

“We design with the highest quality fabrics, fittings, and supplies we can find. Just as athletes and outdoor lovers want gear that fits properly, performs and enriches their experience, we wanted the same for our own four-legged adventure buddies,” says Ken Goldman, founder of Stunt Puppy. “What we quickly discovered is that when we combine technical materials with skills to make gear that performs well without being fussy or complicated, our dogs are more comfortable and we all perform better. Additionally, the level of fun, positivity and trust is enhanced between dog and human when there is less leash tangling, less messiness. and less adjustment of ill-fitting or underperforming dog gear.”

“It’s so nice to be working with people with whom we’ve been able to develop a strong relationship over many years,” adds Goldman. “It’s all about people and dogs. They are amazing people and they absolutely get dogs and the role they play in our lives – that’s a special combination.”

Nic Sims, co-founder of SIMBOL says they share these sentiments completely: “We at SIMBOL absolutely share the passion for dogs. There are 1.5 dogs for every SIMBOL member, and we couldn’t be any happier to be working with Stunt Puppy. At heart, we are all nuts for great gear and believe our dogs deserve gear as nice as our own. The hands-free leash is brilliant on runs and hikes, with enough flexibility to keep my dog and me totally in sync over any terrain. It makes running with my dog that much safer and more fun.”

Stunt Puppy gear can be found at www.stuntpuppy.com and better running shops.
