Green Pets: Planet Dog Toys Thinking Globally & Acting Doggedly

planet_dog.jpg
Pet toys are typically made from the cheapest materials. They do not hold up to the demands of humans and dogs, and they end up in landfills. In fact, I usually will not buy a dog toy, as a stick can serve the same purpose, then again, a stick dog is an annoying dog.  My children, however, enjoy having toys for their dogs (I don't think the dogs mind).

Planet Dog's mission is "to amuse, explore, support, innovate, create, educate, celebrate, & philanthropate...all in the name of the dog". We (humans and canines) love Planet Dog!

We tried out two Planet Dog products:
Planet Dog Wood Chuck Ball Toss Toy with RecycleBall:

Engineered with sustainable bamboo and reused cork scraps. A sleek take on other ball-tossing devices, Wood Chuck's® bamboo core offers strength and maximum chuck-ability with an ergonomic cork handle for comfort and grip-ability throw, after throw. Wood Chuck's® 4-pronged claw coupled with the pliant nature of our Orbee-Tuff® products make it a cinch to grab and throw. Goes the distance every time. Wood Chuck® is offered with Orbee-Tuff® RecycleBALL®. Can be used with Planet Dog's Orbee-Tuff® 2.5" toys or certain unpressurized standard tennis balls.

Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Glow for Good Ball:
100-Percent of the sales of our doggie-durable, buoyant, bouncy, minty Glow for Good Ball go directly to the Planet Dog Foundation, our not-for-profit arm whose mission is to support canine service programs.

These are great, durable toys. I really like them both!  The ball tosser really flings the ball far, allowing the dogs to get a great work out running up and down the hill as I toss it. The glow-in-the-dark ball is fun for nighttime ball play!

Disclosure: I was sent free samples of these products to review. No prior assurances were given as to whether the review would be positive or negative.
