The most recent awards were held on the 1st of October 2019 in the Renaissance Beijing Capital Hotel (北京富力万丽酒店), co-organised by Dog Network (狗民网) and LingdangChongwu （铃铛宠物). The official name of the event is “The Awards Ceremony of Pet Industry Users’ Favourite Brands of 2018.”
Julius-K9 won the Pet Industry Users’ Favourite Brands award within the so-called “Leads” category. In the Chinese language, this terminology means far more than “leashes”: it includes every other item connected with dog walking. It is not hard to guess that the most popular item on the list was JULIUS-K9’s dog harness. It’s not the first time that this iconic design has received international recognition.
