The inspirational story behind SophiPet 

During the recession several years ago in a town far, far away, my wife and I decided to lift our spirits by driving around to find the perfect bridge… that we would be living under. It was at that time I began to feel the bark side of the force when my wife requested on behalf of her boss that I design and build a set of dog stairs for her boss’s dog Babe, who sadly broke her back jumping from a high bed using a short step stool. Before the recession, I designed and made complex human staircases, so, after some heated discussion, and …my wife apparently using the “Jedi Mind Trick”, I somehow grudgingly agreed to do it. Her boss noted in a list: “The stairs need to reach my 40” high bed, can’t stick out too far in the room, and if possible, match my upscale style and bedroom décor.” So I turned to the internet for inspiration.  

giphyHelp me Google-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope! What I was shown is a whole galaxy of small-dog-lovin’ people out there with quadrupeds getting hurt from high beds, which makes sense because it’s the equivalent of a person jumping from the roof of a one-story building. Imagine doing that several times a day to be near the one you love! After seeing the feeble solutions to this preventable tragedy, I felt a great disturbance in the force. And when I later heard of “Babe’s” death, I knew It was time to fulfill my destiny and “turn to the bark side” by creating the world’s greatest patented pet staircase, SophiPet.  Read Full Story

What Inspires you?

When collaborating with a client to design a custom staircase for their home, to fit their needs & style, a checklist is taken to accomplish this. This checklist would include: What style handrail? Stain or paint & what colors? Specialty finishes: Patina, Satin Black, Pewter Vein? Which tread carpet design? etc. This is the same checklist SophiPet will offer with our D-I-T or Design-It-Together pet staircases. Alongside the inventor of SophiPet, William Moore, you and our design team can collaborate to create a custom SophiPet staircase to match your space by utilizing your photos, color swatches, and fabrics.

Risks and challenges

In-House Manufacturing– With our entry into the mass-production market, initially streamlining the production line is going to take some work and time; however, being familiar with logistics processes and project management, we are confident we can accomplish our objectives. With a combined 30+ years of experience in the woodwork manufacturing business, long-standing relationships with material, supplies, and packaging resources, vast knowledge & experience using production equipment (i.e. CNC Machines, wide-belt sanders, finishing processes, production saws), we have understood and adapted to the production line process on various projects over the years.

Complex Order Fulfillment – It’s not hard to see the difficulty in reward fulfillment with as many rewards as we offer. In a dream world, everything works out perfectly and everyone gets their rewards exactly on time, every time. In our world, the real world, expected & unexpected problems arise from all directions. With our list of reward tiers offered, executing the fulfillment is going to take some know-how, problem solving and honing to get it running smoothly. Once funded, we are confident that our strategic planning will be able to get the job done, proactively tackling challenges and getting the rewards to you with the indiegogo definition of “on time.”

Product Adjustments – Creativity and quality never ceases. Again, from experience, we find better and faster ways to produce top-of-the-line products with a little fine tuning here and there, all to better benefit your experience as the end user. Some people don’t like surprises, so we aim to keep you up to date on any improvements made.

Shipping

Overseas Shipping– Initially, overseas backers will get the same discounted shipping amount as our North American backers. Although, because of other unknown factors, there are extra shipping costs to consider. Once funded, oversees and galaxy shipping logistics will be worked out, but we’re not there yet. Each country is different and the process of customs, delays, extra charges is something to consider and other things we are not familiar with at this stage and can’t guarantee delivery on time with the potential for smugglers, bandits and raiders trading it on the black market?? Nevertheless, you can count on… most of us to get there and face the challenges and risks head on with hopefully no causalities.

It is not unexpected that there will be dog days ahead, but with your help, we can keep the barking and howling to a minimum. In order to get your paws on one of our perks, scroll up and select the perk you want or just back us by selecting “Back This Project.”
