’s Favorite Things for the Holidays!

Posted on December 1, 2010. Filed under: 2. Fun Pet Stuff We're Trying | Tags: , , , , , , |

If Oprah can have her “favorite things” for the holidays, so can the “furry” reviewers at We’re really impressed with some of the cool dog toys we’ve been testing out. Check out Indy and Lola at the beach with the Soft Bite Floppy Disc.



Fortunately for Lola and her little mouth, the discs come in three different sizes. They not only fly pretty high, but they also float when they hit the water, which means you’re not going to lose it when  your dog misses a catch. Our “furry” critics had no problem keeping busy chasing these fun floppy discs up and down the lovely beaches of La Jolla, California.

The Dogzilla Disc is another saucer type disc, which also flies and floats. It seems a lot more rugged for dogs that like to sink their teeth into things. It’s made of a high-quality foam which is puncture proof. Another flying disc to check out is the BOODA Designer Flyer which is actually made from parachute material, although I doubt your dog will realize it. Still it makes it very light weight and easy to toss around for both you and your pet. I especially like the saying on the disc, “A house is not a home without a dog,”  We fully agree!

Now if your pet is crazy for squeakers, the BIGSQUEAKS will definitely get its attention. It promises not to rip apart or unravel, so for those dogs determined to gut the toy and kill the squeaker, good luck. Indy, my Border Collie tried, but the toy held up. I like that each BIGSQUEAK has a different fun word on it like “Zip!” “Pow!” and “Splat!” Of course we would not want to leave out the little dogs and puppies, so BOODA has the  Tuff Plush Cookie Cutter toys. Their cute, tiny, soft and squeaky, just like a puppy.

Indy especially enjoyed BOODA’s Dogzilla Tug, because he thinks he’s the top dog and is determined to win in any tug-of-war game. What’s also pretty cool about the Tug is that it has a little compartment for treats, which is another reason your dog will want to win in tug-of-war match.

If your dog is a ball fanatic, Indy recommends the Go Get It! Retractable Ball Launcher. We liked it too because who really likes picking up the goopy mess of a tennis ball after a few rounds of fetch. With the launcher you can pick the ball up, no hands required, and launch the ball farther then any major league pitcher. Since it’s retractable you can easily throw it into your beach bag and pack it up very easily.

The first thing you notice about a lot of these pet toys is the sweet vanilla scent. Also, according to the manufacturer the toys are designed for canine eyesight, which is interesting if you consider the limited colors dogs can see. Many of the toys are in shades of blue, which apparently is one of the shades dogs can see. Indy and Lola just loved testing out all of these products and give them the paws up! If your looking for ideas for your pet’s Christmas stocking ask your local pet store for the Petmate products featured here.  The best part is everything we checked out was under $20.00. Of course they also have some great products for the cat of the house too.
