Alan Cook wants to change the way you clean up dog poop when he pitches Brilliant Pad to the Sharks in episode 914. Cook created “the world’s first self-cleaning indoor dog potty for puppies and small dogs" when he introduced the idea in a successful IndieGoGo campaign in early 2017. He raised over $110,000 in April, 2017 and successfully delivered over 1600 units by August.
The Brilliant Pad is a small roller system. When dogs pee or poop on the pad, it rolls the waste into a sealed, air-tight packet. It's a lot like a vacuum sealer for food except it's automatic and it's for waste. All the parts are eco-friendly and the sealant material is biodegradable. The pad material soaks up pee and dries out poop quickly then rolls into a disposable tube. No more plastic bags and paper towels!
Each unit runs $159 and comes with 27 pads – enough for nearly a month. Replacement pads and rolls run $64 with a subscription priced at $57. Reviews indicate pet owners LOVE their product. Cook likely wants to make it a mass market item. Can a Shark help Mr. Cook take his business to the next level?

He'll need to convince Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O'Leary, Lori Grenier, and Alex Rodriguez that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but he’ll need to show them HE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards."
