I recently came across an article discussing Pethead grooming products in Pet Product News International magazine. Pethead is licensed to Skaffles LLC by Bedhead, which is an edgy brand of human hair products which features packaging with unusual shapes, colors and fonts. This is the first time I’ve seen any human hair care or personal care brand extended into the pet space. Like the Bedhead brand, Pethead products are positioned at a premium price point, with shampoos at $18 on Amazon.com According to the article, this is also Skaffles’ first foray into pet products, the company previously specialized in trendy accessories targeted at teenage girls. The Pethead brand also includes accessories for dogs. Skaffles plans to further extend its pet products into grooming items for cats and American Kennel Club (AKC) licensed merchandise. This product line again confirms the humanization of pets trend and marks a breakthrough in crossover branding, which I’ve previously only seen in pet toys and clothing. I’m eager to see what pops up next!
