It is a program that has different names in different countries, I know Dragon's Lair is used in I think the UK and Canada. Anyway, It has different venture capitialists investing in essentially start up or companies that haven't been in business that long, but have some kind of following. They pick the ones they want to invest in. Anyway, they had a funny one on the other day of people who made dog treats look like fancy pastries. Of course it was for the owner..like the dog cares what his treats look like. They will eat out of the garbage for goodness sakes. Anyway, it was roughly 15.00 for these fancy little treats..that looked like cupcakes and what not. I could see if you had unlimited cash..and wanted to celebrate your dog's bday or something..or wanted to impress his friends..otherwise..it falls into the more money than sense category. I got Nico some treats at Sharp Shopper that are designed to look like chocolate bars. You break off the pieces. I don't think he likes them, and this boy is ga, ga for treats. I am putting my foot down though..no 15.00 treats!

My dad used to love that show. I don’t think I could bring myself to buy a treat for Sadie that cost $15 unless it had a magic elixir that would keep her healthy for 20 years.

I mean if it was some kind of vitamin or supplement that is really good for them sure, but not some salmon mousse cupcake.

Its called the Dragon's Den here. I watch it every once in awhile. $15 treats is a bit extreme.

@Happy2BeMe I know a store that sells really expensive cupcakes and they are delicious..but I guarantee they are not 15.00 per, and those are for people anyway.

@snowy22315 ya seems a bit ridiculous. I would never pay $15 for a cupcake for anyone.

@dodo19 Yes, my problem is most of them wouldn't be useful in my life or cost too much.

@snowy22315 For sure. There were quite a few interesting ideas, when I watched.

$15 is too much for dog treats. Did anyone invest in those treats? I've heard of the show and saw maybe one episode.

I don't think they did. They didn't see it as scalable, in other words it was a niche market that probably wouldn't grow that much.

I haven't watched Shark Tank in quite some time. $15 is a lot to spend for dog treats! Have a good day.

Here too in India they have recently started Shark Tank and we had few seasons in the last few years. I have not watched it, but got the glimpse of it during TV commercials. You are right. The innovative idea of treats is for the owner and not for the pet

Yes, so they can take a pic of the treat and the pet with a birthday hat on before they gobble it down or something.

@snowy22315 Yes, these days it's more about showing off. People live a parallel life on social media platforms and they do all these things for getting the attention on these platforms.

@arunima25 Well, yes but in Shark Tank it is all about marketing the product whatever it happens to be. Alot of very smart people on there, and I am not talking about the venture capitialists.

I've never watched that show. Not sure why but I thought it had to do with fitness and losing weight.

No., they are venture capitalists.
