Some companies that appear on the show have not achieved great success, and the PDX Pet Design was one of them. Sometimes businesses don’t succeed because of many reasons. Sometimes, the deal falls through after the founders say yes on camera. Or, as you’ll see, sometimes things happen to the founders themselves, and they choose to abandon the business. Anything is possible. However,  PDX Pet Design went out of business in 2021. And the product is no longer available in the market.
