Holiday Gift Guide: goDog® RhinoPlay™ Tough Toys for Playful Pups!

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

Is your pup tough on toys?  Harley Mae sure is!  We recently got to check out a great variety of chew toys from goDog® RhinoPlay™ that our tough chewer really loved.  Check them out:


goDog® RhinoPlay™ is a line of unique and durable foam dog toys that was developed by Worldwise® in conjunction with the One World Play Project™.   The line is made from an environmentally safe and non-toxic foam and is available in several fun shapes.  The unique material is called PopFoam® NT™. This makes for a dog toy that is incredibly strong but still very lightweight. Dogs will love the feel of this material and pet parents will love the durability. 


The Vexo™ is a fun, stick-shaped toy. A concave shape makes it easy for dogs to carry. 



The Flip™ is a fun, chip-shaped toy that always lands with one side up so it is easy for dogs to carry! 



The Cirq™ is a fun round toy shape with a square center. A channel around the underside of the toys makes it easier for dogs to carry and is a great place to hide treats!


The Beast™ ball is a puncture-proof ball that never goes flat! The Beast features a unique self-inflating valve so it will reinflate, even through tough play! 

All of these toys are water safe, they even float!  They are great for indoor and outdoor play.  They stand up pretty well to heavy chewing and though they do eventually break down, we were able to get weeks of play out of them making them a great value.  Harley really loves them and it's a safe bet your playful pup will too:)

As an added bonus, all sales of these fun toys include a charitable give-back to organizations that promote play and enhance the human-animal bond.

Holiday Gift Guide: Hear Doggy! Toys for Your Pup!

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

Another great gift idea for your favorite pup, Hear Doggy toys!


Any pet lover knows that dogs love the feel and sound of “squeaky” toys, but enduring the high-pitched repetition in the wee hours of the night can drive any pet-parent crazy!   Ultrasonic HEAR DOGGY!® toys are made with a squeaker ONLY your dog can hear.  Hear Doggy! plush toys give your pet the same sensation and enjoyment of traditional squeaky toys without the irritating noise. 


The science behind Hear Doggy!: 
Dogs can hear sounds at a higher frequency (0 to 45 KHz) than humans (0 to 20 KHz).  Tuned to an ultrasonic range in the 24-28 KHz frequency, each Hear Doggy! squeaker is out of human hearing range, but still fun for your four-legged friend.
Hear Doggy! toys give your pet the same sensation and enjoyment of traditional squeaky toys without the irritating noise!


These sturdy characters are made with Chew Guard Technology™ a manufacturing process that adds a tough, durable liner to every toy. The reinforced seams and specially engineered lining were made to withstand the rigors of a dog's play. Dogs are tough but Chew Guard™ is tougher!

Harley loves the Hear Doggy toys.  She is a bit of a rough chewer, so in order to make them last she only gets to play with them under supervision, but she is a huge fan!  I love that she gets so much enjoyment out of them and I don't have to put up with a barrage of squeaking while she chews:)

Hear Doggy toys are super cute and would make a fun gift for your pup this holiday season!
