Inventing items that will make a pet owner’s life a little easier has been Allen Simon’s expertise for nearly 50 years. The current CEO and president of PetProducts.com got his start working retail at a pet store in Brooklyn before opening his own business called Four Paws in 1970. Simon saw a space for himself in the pet industry where he could be creative and innovative while helping pet owners. “I manufactured and invented over 200 products, including the original and world-renowned Wee-Wee Pads and the Allen Pooper Scooper,” says Simon. “Over the years, we grew into one of the largest manufacturers in the pet industry.” If you have a puppy, you definitely have a box of Wee-Wee Pads on hand for training accidents.
