Zugo Pet will enter the tank during Sunday’s episode of Shark Tank with the goal of scoring a deal with one of the investors. Zugo Pet has an interesting business concept, one that the sharks may need to think about.

Zugo Pet was founded by Juls Bindi, who loved driving to her grandmother’s ranch with her dog, Russell. There was just one problem — Russell hated the drive. He wasn’t comfortable or secure. Juls tried to find a pet carrier, but found nothing that worked for him.

Juls decided she should pursue something that could make dogs more comfortable when traveling in a car. She would conduct years of research, with numerous prototypes and meetings before creating the multifunctional Jetsetter.

The carrier is made with plush vegan-approved materials and interchangeable pads, in case your pet has an accident. The pad also heats and cools, depending on your pet’s needs.

Carolyn Shewfelt, who now works as the company’s lead product developer, created the Rocketeer Pack. It’s a car seat for animals that’s been approved by CPS – the Center for Pet Safety.

The car seat comes in five different sizes depending on the size and weight of your pet.

Another amazing feature that may sell the sharks is that the company donates at least $1 per purchase to animal-welfare organization. They also have an affiliate program for those who want to help promote the safety products for their pets.

You can get Zugo Pet products on Amazon and find everything from the bag between the seats for smaller pets to the harness for car seats.

On the company’s website, you’ll have a larger selection of products to choose from, and you can even get shipping to Canada if you are located up north.

Shark Tank airs this Sunday at 8/7c for a double-episode night on ABC.
