When we found the Safestix dog fetch toy, the safe alternative to throwing sticks for your pooch we could not wait to hear what you thought about it. So imagine how pleased we were when we had these lovely pictures land in our mail box. Just take a look at these very happy doggies playing with their new toy on the beach.A you can see the Safestix has rounded ends so it will not lodge itself in the ground ( even sand) and Fudge and Muppet are also able to grab it and have a great game of tug of war. Safestix were designed by husband and wife team Paul and Helen after their Jack Russell Terrier Razzle sustained a mouth injury after chasing a wooden stick. If your dog loves chasing and fetching sticks then the Safestix is the toy you need. This super dog toy is one of a kind with nothing like it available in the UK. Made from tough non toxic rubber and will withstand a fair amount of chewing. But it comes into its own when used as a fetch toy, the bright orange colour makes it easy to spot for you and your dog and it even floats. We currently stock the 70cm chunky twist design which is suitable for medium to large dogs or a feisty terrier and soon we will have a smaller 50cm version as well as some super tough and dental versions. A huge thanks to @julieanddoods for taking these great pictures of her pooches having such fun on the beach they all look like they are having a great time. If you love labradoodles as much as Julie does then why not check out this great forum especially for doodle lovers !
Every now and then we need some products testing out and we always find lots of willing volunteers on twitter so when we needed someone to to a review of the Plague Rat Cat toy @ruthsimsmoore volunteered her puss cats to be our latest testers. A Plague Rat is no ordinary cat toy. These little bundles of fun are hand made by Sally Pointer in Wales, and are filled with a potent mixture of catnip and valerian root. They are made from linen with woollen tails, leather ears and small beady rat eyes. These little guys are so potent that we advise you to make sure that you are around when the postman delivers them, we have had more than a few people tell us that parcels have been opened by paw, by kitty cats who can't wait to get their paws on them. They are about 15cm long with a plaited 25cm tail, but as they are hand made sizes may vary. Our range has a red and black tail, with small orange/red bead eyes and black leather ears. So what did the cats think about them? This is what @ruthsimsmoore told us... "My 2 year old female cat loved the plague rat as you can see in the video! straight away she was really interested, and she is normally quite held back when it comes to new things or people that she comes across! She did enjoy a good play and then later returned to it, and a few days later when I gave it to her again she was again loving the rat :) My next door neighbour also tried it with her cat and he LOVED it also as you can see... They are a tad smelly but you soon forget that when you see the antics of your pussycat and the rat. I think the colours of the plague rat are brill! " We also sent a few little sample bags of Fish4dogs Complete Cat Food which went down a treat with Ruth's two cats. "This went down VERY well with my two cats! and I would love to buy some for them in the future. Maybe in a bigger pack if they are avalible? My cats seemed very satisfied, however, even after sharing a pack between them! Nice little treat for them I think." So a big thanks to Ruth for taking the time to review these products for us, you can find our full range of amazing finds for the furry kind on line, Oh and make sure you follow us on twitter to be in with a chance of winning one of our weekly competitions. This blog post is dedicated to Theo, Forever Loved, Always Missed RIP 2008-2011.
We were very excited to get our latest delivery from Kyjen because we now have the great Invincibles Snake Dog Toy to add to our range of fab dog toys. The snake toys come in two sizes with either three or six invincible squeakers. The usual problem with squeaky dog toys is that once your dog manages to puncture the squeaker, they usually lose interest in the toy. Not so with the invincible snake toy because even when punctured these toys keep on squeaking. You can check out this video for a demonstration of the amazing squeakers!
Your pooch will love this funky dog toy which is ideal for dogs who love squeaky dog toys, they can be chased, nibbled and flapped around in a frenzy of fun. All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to post a comment telling us which is your dog’s favourite long lasting toy. The competition ends on the 6th Feb at midnight and we will announce the winner on Monday 7th.
