Hugs Hydro Fetch Dog Toy


As the US embraces for 100+ degrees F temperature this week, it is important to remember to keep your dogs hydrated.  Free access to fresh, clean water is imperative.  The Hugs Hydro Fetch Dog Toy can also help as its water-absorbent core will gradually release liquid as your dog puts it in his mouth and squeezes or chomps down on it.

This is especially important for brachycephalic dogs as their shorter airways make it harder to cool down.  Your dog will love this toy, and you will know he is getting hydrated when he plays with it.

K9 Kannon Tennis Ball Launcher Dog Toy


Hyper Pet K9 Kannon Ball Launcher Dog Toy

If your dog loves to retrieve, this K9 Kannon ball launcher is a must have. I had a friend with an Australian Cattle Dog named Kody that wanted to retrieve all day long. She just couldn’t get enough! For anyone that knows and loves Heelers, you know how intense they can be. I sat with Kody for over an hour tossing the ball over a hill, and she kept bringing it back to me, with those pleading eyes, please play with me! She just loved it. The problem was that Kody wore me out!  I tried throwing the ball down over the hillside so she would have to expend more energy to bring it back, but I couldn’t throw it far enough.  The K9 Kannon launches balls up to 75 feet.

Tether Tug Interactive Dog Toy


Tether Tug is the latest interactive tug toy to keep your active dog entertained!  My two Boerboels love to play with a flirt pole, but like most active dogs, they wear me out quickly.  The Tether Tug is designed so that your dog can entertain himself — and you can sit back and enjoy the show!

Tether Tug interactive tug toy for dogs — your dog will have a blast!

Tether Tug is dedicated to promoting healthy physical and mental play for dogs of all activity level. We recognize that pets are an important member of any family and it is our goal to keep them healthy and happy.

Tether Tug Small is designed for dogs and puppies under 15 pounds.

Cardiovascular Health Benefits from Tether Tug

Dogs, like humans, are at risk for health complications if they do not get enough physical activity. The Tether Tug allows dogs to play whenever they want and provides hours of healthy exercise.

Tether Tug Provides Play for Dogs of all Sizes

The Tether Tug is designed to be played with by dogs of any size. The durable construction is sturdy enough for big dogs, but adjustable to allow play for the smaller breeds.  Dogs of all sizes can play.  The Tether Tug comes in 4 sizes — Small, Medium, Large and XL.  Select the size that meets the needs of your dog depending on his size and strength.

Tether Tug Provides Hours of Outdoor Play

Dogs crave play and interaction, and when this can’t happen, destructive behavior can begin.  The Tether Tug allows the dog to interact as if it is playing tug with you, without the arm and shoulder pain or fatigue that causes owners to only pull for a few minutes.

Tether Tug for Small Dogs

The Tether Tug Small is designed for smaller breeds that have trouble grabbing a thick knotted rope.  The Tug is the same pole an in-ground base as the other Tether Tugs, but with a braided fleece toy to allow for easier grabbing and pulling and is easier on smaller teeth.  The fleece toy hangs lower to the ground for shorter dogs and puppies, but the pole still bends and flexes to keep your small dog engaged in play.

Tether Tug XL

The Tether Tug comes in four sizes so that you can select the best option for our dog, depending on his size and strength.  For the largest, strongest and most aggressive pullers, we suggest the Tether Tug XL.  The Tether Tug XL is the strongest and most durable Tether Tug.  It is built with the strongest, thickest core, as well as a larger, more heavy duty in-ground base.  The knotted rope toy in the XL is set higher than the original Tether Tug, but still provides the same level of energetic play as the original.  The XL comes with an in-ground base that allows the tug to spin and turn, as well as a quick connector to allow for toy changes.
