Recently, I had a conversation with a friend who mentioned she didn’t like to shop at certain pet boutiques because of the high prices and snooty retailers. She mentioned that, while she is incredibly attracted to the beautiful merchandise, she is often intimidated by the atmosphere. Personally, you can’t drag me out of a pet boutique, but I completely understand the issue this friend of mine was having. It’s a critique I’ve often heard from others. After this conversation I was inspired to dig around the web to see if I could find merchandise that had the “boutique look” without the intimidation factor. I was beyond surprised to find a collection of great items from an unexpected source, Bed Bath and Beyond!
The Gourdo from Ruffwear is — well — shaped like a gourd. Although now that I see them all grouped together like this they kinda look like multicolored sperm. Anyway, it is made from natural latex rubber, a renewable and sustainable resource and the black one contains 30% reclaimed-rubber.
Remember I told you that I went to that Boston Meetup? Well, when I was there someone had recommended Orbee-Tuff® toys by Planet Dog to me when I explained that my dogs pretty much eat their toys like treats rather than play with them. I talked about the eco-friendly bone a few weeks back, and wondered whether my dogs would be able to destroy it. Many of the toys are over $10, so before I splurge can anyone weigh in as to whether these toys live up to the rumors? The Amazon reviews are not very informative.
