Ahead of their second appearance at PATS Telford this weekend, small furry accessories brand, HayPigs!® have some extremely exciting news to share. With help from their 'pawtners' Guinea Pigs Australia, they have just signed a deal to stock over 150 Petbarn stores in Australia.

HayPigs!® MD and self-proclaimed Ringmaster, Rik, is overjoyed with the news, "This is obviously really exciting news and we are delighted that our range has been so warmly welcomed over in Australia. We can't thank Niomie, Steve and the team at Guinea Pigs Australia enough for their hard work and dedication in helping make this happen. It's humbling to think that we will be enriching the lives of so many small furries across the length and breadth of Australia."

Steven Ferrante of Guinea Pigs Australia had this to add, "Guinea Pigs Australia is so excited to be officially launching HayPigs!® into Petbarn, Australia. With Petbarn's fantastic reach across Australia it will give more guinea pig owners the opportunity to access high quality, fun and creative enclosure accessories. HayPigs!® product range will be available on Petbarn online and at over 150 Petbarn stores by December 2018."

In a triple celebration, HayPigs!® are also thrilled to have made it to the final of the PetQuip Awards for Marketing Project of the Year and also the Essex Business Awards for Best New Business. HayPigs!® Co-founder Helen is really looking forward to the awards events, "It's just lovely to have been recognised for all our hard work. As HayPigs!® is a family business, there have been a lot of sacrifices over the last couple of years, so this is a great opportunity to give ourselves a pat on the back and let our hair down a bit!"

HayPigs!® will be exhibiting at PATS Telford this Sunday and Monday and will also be unveiling a brand new product at the show. For more information, contact or check out their website:

Fresh from scooping the best new product award for the small animals category in the PATS Telford showcase, newcomers HayPigs!® are already looking forward to exciting times ahead, "We're really chuffed to have won this award in our first year of trading." says Rik Cridland, MD and self-proclaimed Ringmaster, "PATS Telford was a wonderful experience and we are really appreciative of the warm welcome we received from the pet trade community. It feels like we are part of one big family already! Thank you to everyone who has supported us to date, it really means a lot. It's been an exhausting experience, but so worth it! We look forward to the exciting journey ahead and can't wait to show you what else we've got planned for HayPigs!®"

HayPigs!® mix of product innovation, quirkiness and good humour, caught the judges' eye after they entered four of their six circus themed launch products into the showcase. Their winning product, the HayPigs!® Piggy Weightlifter™, is said to be the World's first, horizontal, pet friendly, vegetable kebab maker. It provides guinea pigs and other small animals with an enriching food challenge while also entertaining their owners. "The judges were unanimous in their choice of this winning product." said the panel "They felt a fun circus range for small animals was a great addition to the market. The winning product from the range was a novel idea and will provide hours of enjoyment."
