Santa Clarita-based celebrity dog trainer Cesar Millan is partnering with a company that provides a collagen supplement formula for dogs.
Happy Again Pet is a one-year-old Venice Beach company with a product that is formulated to improve the joint health of dogs. It was created to maintain the cartilage of younger dogs to prolong their youth, and to help rebuild it in older dogs with the aim of improving their mobility.
Happy Again Pet combines collagen with a blend of glucosamine, hyaluronic acid and vitamins for maximum effectiveness. Because a dog’s joints are primarily composed of collagen, the natural deterioration that occurs with age can result in stiffness and discomfort.
The partnership arose from a common goal, to ensure dogs are living their happiest and healthiest life possible. Founder Anja Skodda created Happy Again Pet and developed its mission when her beloved English bulldog, Tony, could no longer skateboard due to joint issues. As the first Happy Again test case, not only was Tony able to return to skateboarding, but he also lived a long and playful life.
Cesar Millan, meanwhile, was unwittingly already playing a role in Skodda & Tony’s life, as she used the Dog Whisperer’s methods to train the stubborn bulldog. When at last they met, the celebrity trainer tried the supplement on his own dogs for several months, and can now speak to its effectiveness, saying:
Every pet parent’s goal should be to provide their dog with the most healthy and happy lifestyle possible. A big part of accomplishing this is being aware of the five body motions, which are: stretch, walk, run, rest and sleep. Happy Again is not only a preventative supplement for stiff joints and joint discomfort, its collagen base helps dogs stay moving, youthful and active well into their senior years. I give Happy Again to my dogs and can confidently say that it works.
This partnership announcement kicks off a busy fall for them both. Millan will be touring, starting with a week-long residency at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada before heading to Europe. Happy Again Pet plans to expand its range of products to include chews, as well as joining Cesar Millan’s live tour.
