When introducing consumers to her line of upscale dog-grooming products, Sexy Beast founder Renee Ryan is faced with striking a delicate balance: On the one hand, Sexy Beast is intended to be a luxury brand; on the other, Ryan needs to get her somewhat unconventional merchandise in front of her target customers and let them see it in action. (After all, even the most canine-centric consumer may not realize they need plant-based, hypo-allergenic, 100-percent vegan grooming products -- and frangrance -- for touch-ups in between regular trips to the groomer.)

Renee Ryan loves her white boxer, Austin. "For a single girl in New York, sometimes your dog is the only consistent thing in your life," says the cosmetics industry veteran, who started business development firm Ryan Basics in 2003.
But Austin balks at going to the groomer. In her search for products to use at home, Ms. Ryan discovered an overlooked niche. Though brands like Hermes and Gucci had introduced pet accessories, nobody sold shampoo or scent for pooches.
In May 2006, Ms. Ryan launched Sexy Beast, hiring a former Kiehl's chemist to work with a Swiss perfumer to develop a 100% vegan line of dog-grooming products.
The web site ( accounts for 30% of sales, and Ms. Ryan is eyeing expansion to upscale pet boutiques and luxury hotel chains.
MISSES Simplify, simplify
Initial marketing, which took the approach of using Sexy Beast between visits to the groomer, "was just too complicated," Ms. Ryan says. She also "wasted" more than $100,000 on three different "very large, very well-known" public relations firms, she says.
