Will the sharks see the value in these cute headpieces during the Shark Tank Season 13 pitch? We’ll talk about it in our Pawnix update and recap.

Shark Tank Pawnix Update

Pawnix Update

  • Entrepreneur: Kirsten Brand
  • Business: Noise-cancelling headphones for nervous dogs
  • Ask: $150,000 for 10% equity
  • Result: No deal
  • Shark: None

When Pawnix came into Shark Tank, it was a relatively young brand. In just about a year, the company boasted $105,000 in sales—not bad for a very niche company. Pawnix was available in four sizes and helped dogs hope with louder noises.

First, the sharks loved how cute the helmet was. They also thought Kirsten’s sales were impressive, all things considered. However, they seemed less than enthusiastic about the product itself.

Robert Herjavec loved dogs but not the high price point. The Pawnix headphones sold for about $200, which was too much for him. He also thought the market was too niche, so he went out. Lori Greiner followed because she wasn’t sure they needed all of the electronic components, and she agreed with Robert about the high price point.

Meanwhile, Daymond John thought it would be challenging to explain. It wasn’t for him, so he went out. Mark Cuban, likewise, just wasn’t excited about the product. He went out, too. Kevin O’Leary was the last shark on deck. However, he didn’t think he wanted dog headphones in his portfolio and dropped out. Where is the company now? Find out in our Pawnix update.

There hasn’t been much news about Pawnix since Shark Tank. The headphones are still available on its website, so it seems for now Kirsten is still in business. Hopefully our next Pawnix update will have some more information!
