Nano Pet Products Partners With Lone Star Pet Supply Inc. To Distribute Dog Gone Smart™ Pet Beds Using Proprietary Nanosphere® Fabric Technology

WILTON, Conn., and SCHERTZ, Texas, Dec. 16, 2009 - Nano Pet Products, LLC, a Wilton, Connecticut-based company dedicated to bringing cleaner and healthier pet products to pet owners worldwide through nanotechnology, has partnered with TX-based pet products distributor, Lone Star Pet Supply, Inc. to carry its Dog Gone Smart(TM) line of dog beds according to Nano Pet's Chris Onthank. Nano Pet Products, LLC is the worldwide exclusive licensee of NanoSphere®, a revolutionary proprietary fabric finish technology based on nanotechnology from Schoeller® Technologies AG, Switzerland for the pet industry.

"The Dog Gone Smart pet products line is high quality and long lasting which we know our customer base appreciates and demands," said Danny Selman, vice president and general manager of Lone Star Pet Supply, Inc. He added, "We demonstrated the Dog Gone Smart pet beds at our open house and the response was very positive." According to Selman, Lone Star has also offered some of the Dog Gone Smart(TM) pet apparel line and plans to expand it in the near future. Lone Star Pet Supply, Inc. is one of America's leading regional pet products distributors, offering the largest selection and availability of the products pet lovers desire most.

NanoSphere®, a certified nanotechnology, is impregnated into the fabric without altering the fabric texture and feel, producing a non-visible structured textile surface that coat oil, dirt, and liquids cannot stick to. Residue can easily be rinsed off with water or machine washed. The fabric stands up to frequent washing and is highly abrasion resistant.

"As pioneers of nanotechnology in the pet industry, our products have earned the distinction as some of the most environmentally pet safe and durable worldwide," said Chris Onthank, Dog Gone Smart founder." NanoSphere® carries the label "bluesign® approved" which is based on the world's strictest EHS (environment, health and safety) stipulations for textiles and examines all the relevant components from the very beginning of the manufacturing process. Nano Pet Products are also bacteriostatic, which inhibits the spread of bacteria that can cause odor.

The Dog Gone Smart™ Bed is available in more than 25 styles and sizes, including round, rectangular (both available with Sherpa top), donut, crate pad, and knife-edge memory foam, each in six different colors. The beds, regular and extra large crate pads are priced from MSRP $24.95 to $159.95.

Nano Pet Products can be purchased through retailers like Pet Food Express, Pet People, Joyful Honda in Japan, and Fressnaph in Europe, as well as U.S. and international distributors covering 24 countries on 4 continents. For more information please visit www.doggonesmartbed.com.
