The new Rubber Collection from Harry Barker features classic, well-designed, colorful toys that I’m excited to try. The toys are inspired by 18th-century French design (if your pup’s fancy like that) and are made from recyclable, non-toxic rubber. There’s a tassel toss toy that can be stuffed with treats, a tossing ball, a chewy tug ring, and a classic, bouncy ball. Toss, treat, tug, ball, chew… those are some of my dogs’ very favorite words.
Well, Memorial Day has come and gone, the days are longer and warmer, and I’ve got 6 mosquito bites. I’m calling it: Summer is here! Get your pup in the swing of all things summer with the nautically themed Floats My Boat buoy toy and Have a Ball rope toy, both by Waggo and offered with free shipping from West Elm. The floating buoy toy is perfect for a game of fetch at the lake or the beach, and Have a Ball’s giant knot is great for cleaning and flossing those pearly whites. (Unfortunately, though, neither will keep the bugs away. Ahhh, summertime.)
Huskymutts Mingus and Dottie enjoy their job as official Dog Milk doggie product testers, especially when it means eating things or playing with toys. (And sometimes those two activities tragically intersect.) In this month’s installment of Mingus & Dottie Try It, these two pros put the Holobon and Holobal from Petprojekt to the test. Check out our review below!
West Paw Design doesn’t introduce new toys often, but when they do, they usually hit the nail right on the head. Or the dog on the nose. (Please don’t hit your dog on the nose.) West Paw’s latest offering, Twiz, is a funky-shaped toss, tug, and chew toy that aims to make your standard game of fetch a little more interesting. Twiz flies through the air, bounces unpredictably and even floats — and you can untwist Twiz’s handles to reveal a spot to stash a secret treat surprise for your pup. Twiz is made in the good ol’ USA from recyclable materials and is nontoxic and BPA- and phthalate-free. Cherry on top? It’s dishwasher-safe and guaranteed against dog damage. See it in action in this video, and fetch it from West Paw Design.
I’ve always wanted to teach my dogs (well, Mingus – Dottie’s not smart enough) to fetch me a beer from the fridge. I mean, really, how much would that trick kill at parties — plus just be generally useful in daily life? I think the Doggle, designed by Tommaso Ceschi for United Pets, might be a crucial tool in my mission.
