Why I buy Penn Tennis Balls for My Dog

Skidboot The Blue Heeler Penn Tennis Ball Lover

Growing up playing junior tennis I always gravitated towards Penn tennis balls.

Some think all tennis balls are all the same and at first blush even I may honestly not know exactly why I like Penn. But actually, I do! I know I liked (and continue to like) the feel, the bounce and the sound. Though I love any tennis ball, Penn seems to stand out for me.

Now, after years of creative learning by way of studying Advertising and Marketing in college, ten years with a fashion watch company and having started Wristpect Sport with my business partner I also realize another reason I like Penn...it's the font (or letter type) they use for the word, 'Penn.' All of these details matter to a brand. Like take for instance the name 'Wristpect Sport' --our team is so glad we named ourself something unique. I still chuckle thinking about the day I called my business partner to share the name that began to flood my mind as we contemplated monikers for our sport accessory company. I said the name, then had to spell it, slowly...W-R-I-S-T-P-E-C-T then the word S-P-O-R-T (singular NOT plural...that was on purpose). We almost had an LOL moment when she initially responded with, silence. Then, it hit a big spark for both of us. And we embrace it with a lot of tennis LOVE!

I know for sure I'm NOT alone in pampering my pet/s! If you're the mama (or daddy) of any kind of four-legged baby (or two or three) of any kind you know this:

We're NUTS about our Pets!

So, today I'm confessing I buy my dog a CASE of Penn tennis balls on a regular basis.

And he tears through them, RAPIDLY! I have an Australian Cattle Dog (AKA Blue Heeler) and he loves Penn as much as I do. Honestly you can throw a Penn tennis ball vs. another brand and he will sniff out the PENN!! But my other confession today is, honestly he is happy with any tennis ball---such is the life of us tennis hounds.
