BarkingDeals.com Launches New Social Buying Group to Offer Exclusive Discounts on Leading Pet Products

Members Receive Discounts Between 50 to 90 Percent off Retail and Free Shipping on Purchases

OLDSMAR, FL--(Marketwire - December 6, 2010) - BarkingDeals.com today unveiled a service providing pet owning consumers with a unique way to buy discounted pet products online. BarkingDeals.com partners with recognizable pet product manufacturers and distributors to offer 50 - 90 percent discounts to members on toys, treats, pet accessories, lifestyle gear and more. The group-buying site includes free shipping for all purchased items, everyday. Members can share daily deals with friends via Facebook, Twitter and email. Among the first deals customers can expect to see on the site are from Green Dog Organics, producer of safe, effective, and green pet treats, cleansers and supplies, and Teddy the Dog, apparel for pet owners.

At a time when consumers are focused on smart spending, Barking Deals offers significant savings on their favorite pet products so there's no need to compromise on quality to save money. Additionally, manufacturers benefit by being able to introduce their brands to a niche group of receptive consumers who are likely to pass on recommendations to fellow pet-loving friends using social networks.

"When we noticed the popularity of economical, group-buying sites increase, we wanted to offer the same type of service to the pet owner community," said Steve Watters, CEO of Barking Deals. "By offering new deals daily, members can try products that they might not have tried otherwise. It's a great way for manufacturers to launch or expand their social media programs to committed buyers and a great way for consumers to see what else is out there for their furry friends. It's a win-win for all!"

"Barking Deals is a new and innovative approach to buying pet products, and we are excited to partner with them," said Clark Tran, Product Manager, Green Dog Organics. "With Barking Deals, we're able to reach a wider audience of pet owners who are eager to try new products -- especially when they are saving a ton to test it out!" 

"We are really looking forward to capitalizing on the social media aspects of the Barking Deals partnership," said Ted Pidcock, Owner of Teddy the Dog. "Having members share our deals on Facebook or Twitter will raise our awareness and expand our presence with new customers."
