 Nan Siemer, Inventor

Nan Siemer, Inventor

It's the case of the accidental inventor. Nan Siemer is actually a speaker and trainer with a broadcast journalism background. However, like many dog owners, much of her life revolves around trying to make her dog's life easier.

It's true: "Necessity is the mother of invention." Nan owns a dog who refused to go outside in the rain. She noticed he was trying to seek shelter under the patio furniture and firewood rack when he was forced to go out in the rain, but there was not enough room for him to complete his tasks.

In early 2005, at a product innovation seminar in Cancun, an idea took hold and would not let go. After a sleepless night, Nan discussed her idea of a Poop TentTM with the "faculty." Encouraged by everyone to proceed, she immediately drafted a business plan on cocktail napkins.

The Poop TentTM prototype was embraced by Nan's dog, who happily uses the tent on rainy days. Nine months after the idea was conceived, the Poop TentTM hit the marketplace.

 Benji, Product Tester

Benji, Product Tester

Benji is first and foremost lovable! A Bichon Frise who was bred to be a lapdog, Benji does his "job" very well. However, he has a stubborn streak.

Early on, Benji made it known he would NOT go outside in the rain. It was a bone of contention between Benji and his owner; often leading to "accidents" in the house and Benji spending "time out" in his crate.

After four years of struggling, Benji and his owner decided something needed to be done. Contractors were consulted to determine if something could be constructed to offer temporary shelter without using too much of the yard. Since the cover would only be needed when it rains and snows, a temporary structure seemed ideal.

Today, Benji loves his Poop TentTM. He is not interested in using it on sunny days, but on rainy days the Poop TentTM is the only way to persuade Benji to go outside. Now, Benji doesn't have rainy day "accidents," and HE chooses when he wants to spend time in his crate.
