At the time of filming, the company had $30,000 in total sales. According to Meg and Matt, the company was featured at a tradeshow recently, but no orders were taken. The sharks didn’t like hearing this, especially given their high valuation. This caused Daymond John to drop out, and Mark Cuban followed out for the same reason.

Kevin O’Leary went out next, stating that the category was too small and he didn’t find the company investable. Lori Greiner went out next, stating that it was too early to invest. Robert Herjavec thought these things were very effective, but in the end he said he went out over the valuation.

With no offers from the sharks, Meg, Matt and their pups were forced to leave the tank without a deal. So what happened next for their company? Keep reading The Bear & The Rat update to find out!
