Interzoo 2012: Karlie and Harald Glööckler convince with exclusive dog collection

Harald Glööckler & Harald Glööckler International GmbH

The company Karlie Heimtierbedarf GmbH and Harald Glööckler truly deserved the applause of hundreds of fair visitors and over 50 journalists of print and online media, radio and TV on the first day of the Interzoo, the most important specialist trade fair for pet products worldwide.

Together, they presented the new dog collection Glööckler Dog Couture by Karlie at the largest stand of the fair in hall 7, which is available in selected stores as of autumn of this year. Advance orders are possible now at

Stars of the world premiere were not only Harald Glööckler and the new products by Karlie, but the dogs that impressively and skilfully presented this collection to the audience during the exclusive dog walk on the runway. Among other items, the adorable dog models displayed rhinestone-studded collars, extravagant leashes and elaborately processed dog coats that carry fine-sounding names like „St. Tropez“, „Kampen“ or „Ascot“, and are described in detail in the new Karlie catalogue.

Currently, the new dog collection Glööckler Dog Couture by Karlie includes 16 products in the glamorous style typical for Glööckler. Among others, the following items of the collection could be seen on the dog walk: Günter with a black collar and black leash, Sophie with a pink leash and collar (both Chihuahuas); Taotao (Papillion) and Krusty (Yorkshire Terrier) with the harness St. Tropez; Lady Gaga (Poodle) with the coat Ascot and the West Highland Terriers Maya and Carlotta with future fashion designs in sequins and coats in gold and green. Last but not least, the French bulldog enthused the audience with her studded leather coat for the cold season.

„The cooperation with the star designer Harald Glööckler gives our product range that certain something. We would have never expected the opening day with our world premiere to be such a great success“, says Dr. Angelika Westerwelle, Manager of Karlie Heimtierbedarf GmbH. „In spite of the flurry of camera flashes and the huge crowd, our dog models were very brave and proved that they are very special. They felt visibly comfortable in the new dog fashion by Mr Glööckler.“

„My personal recommendation from the collection is the Resting-Pad. It is a foldable dog pillow with a carrying handle – of course with the Glööckler-crown. Little Günter, a Chihuahua who was sitting on my lap during the presentation of the collection was already flirting with the Resting-Pad – at least that was my impression“, says Harald Glööckler and laughs.
