After 35 years with the Atlanta newspapers, Marcia currently serves as Retail VP for the Buckhead Business Association, where she delivers news and trends (laced with a little gossip).

Michael Jenkins, a Sandy Springs resident and British subject, was always looking for opportunities. In training his poodle Rocco, he became fed up with potty pads and the frustration of coaxing his pooch not to go in the house.

So he developed a retail product that is easy to set up and use. Jenkins’ PupAlert aims to take the stress and difficulty out of house training dogs. “I firmly believe this will revolutionize the pup potty home training as it’s so easy to do and will enhance home hygiene. ” said Jenkins.

Doggie Potty Alert System™️ from PupAlert, uses technology to act as a communication bridge between you and your dog. When used with an integrated training system, you learn when your pup needs to go out.

The system is connected to home Wi-Fi. When your pet approaches the door linked with the Doggie Potty Alert System, a dog tag sends a message to a sensor that, in turn, delivers a clear, audible sound that your dog has to go. Through a free app, you receive an audio-visual notification on any smartphones linked to the system.

You can add as many smartphones as you want so the whole family gets notified, plus you can add multiple sensors and multiple tags. The app also allows you to customize and manage your dog’s schedule.
Jenkins spent a year researching his product and assembling a team of contractors skilled in electronic engineering, app development, printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing and assembling, not to mention label and box suppliers.

The key to a potty-trained pup is consistency, Jenkins said. “This way, you’ll always know when your dog has to go.” ■
