Peter Ragonetti
(B.I.D. Industrial Design ’04)

Pet toy designer Peter Ragonetti’s motto is “design it, refine it, and make it.” And so he has. He has developed dozens of award-winning pet toy product designs since joining the New Jersey-based pet toy company JW Pet Company Inc. in 2004. He designs products for all animals, and his creations include cat toys, hamster cages, aquarium ornaments, and food bowls. When there is a new dog toy in the works, he tests it out with his brown mixed-breed dog Lola and his friends' dogs.
