Outward Hound Car Seat Hammock Protector review

Kyjen Outward Hound Car Seat Hammock Protector














Kelly and Ike love to come with us for car rides, but they always leave behind a memento of the trip...a car seat full of dog hair. There are many different types of car seat covers, but we were particular intrigued by this one from Outward Hound. Kyjen sent us one to try out and review.

1. The hammock was easy to install.
2. It forms a barrier between the front and back seats so the dogs can't worm their way in front.
3. It's made of sturdy nylon material.

We give the Outward Hound Back Seat Hammock Protector high marks for ease of use and durability. Kelly and Ike enjoyed the ride, and when it was done, our car seats were free of pet hair!

Week of Christmas Giveaway #5: Orbee Old Soul ball review and giveaway

A Week of Christmas Giveaways Day #5!
Today--Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Old Soul Ball

























The Planet Dog Old Soul ball is designed for seniors. This is the greatest idea, a ball that is specifically designed for the needs of our older friends! The toy addresses the issues of reduced vision and smell, weakened jaw muscles and brittle teeth. The ball is double soft, and double minty. I could smell the mint the minute I opened the packaging. Ike loved the mint too, licking the ball for minutes. He loved chewing on it and didn't want to stop. I think it's fantastic that a company has considered the play needs of senior dogs and designed a toy just for them.



















One word of caution: I thought Ike was a weak chewer. He even is missing half his teeth! He's never ripped apart a toy or broken into a tennis ball. But he chewed through the Old Soul ball and ate a few large chunks. So please watch your dog, as with any toy, because even if they are a senior, they still may have stronger chewing ability than is appropriate for this ball.


We are giving away one Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Old Soul ball to each of THREE winners! Enter below.

Week of Christmas Giveaways Day 4: Orbee Recycle Ball review and giveaway

A Week of Christmas Giveaways Day #4!
Today--Orbee-Tuff RecycleBALL































































 I don't know if there's any way to explain it. My dogs are crazy for the Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff balls.
It could be the material. The rubber ball is durable, yet soft to chew. And the RecycleBALL is made of scraps from other Orbee-Tuff balls that otherwise would have been discarded!
Or maybe it's the taste. The RecycleBALL is minty. My dogs actually lick it because it tastes so good.
Whatever the reason, this ball is a winner. We love the Orbee-Tuff RecycleBALL!

We're giving away one Orbee-Tuff RecycleBALL each to THREE lucky winners. Enter below! And good luck.

Week of Christmas Giveaways Day #3: Tennis Slider Review and Giveaway

A Week of Christmas Giveaways Day #3!
Today--Tennis Slider


















Kyjen provided us with a Tennis Slider Dog Toy Puzzle to review. I thought this toy would be a big hit, especially with Ike who LOVES tennis balls. The puzzle works by hiding a tennis ball behind rotating panels. Treats are also put behind the panels, to help guide your dog to the hidden treats. The toy is challenging, well-made and durable. The only trouble for us was that the treats became the sole focus, and the dogs had no interest at all in the tennis balls. The game was a bit too complicated for poor Ike, but Kelly mastered it quite well. This game would be excellent for your intelligent dogs who like a challenge!





















Today's giveaway: Your choice of Cross slider OR Tennis slider toy.

Week of Christmas Giveaways Day #2: Cross Slider Review and Giveaway

A Week of Christmas Giveaways!
Today--Cross Slider

















I love Interactive toys. They give your dog a little challenge, while solving a puzzle to win a treat.  Kyjen sent us the Cross Slider toy to review. The toy works by hiding treats in a hollow ball, and placing it in the Cross Slider. The dog has to work the ball out of the tunnels with his paws and mouth.

Different dogs will do differently with this toy, depending upon their patience and puzzle solving skills. Let me just say upfront that Ike is still in puppy Kindergarten when it comes to puzzle solving.


 
Kelly is a quick learner. She used her paws to efficiently get at the toy, and even lifted it and dropped it with her mouth for maximum effect. The Cross Slider is durable, fun, challenging, and great for keeping your dog entertained for extended periods of time. Both dogs enjoyed it, and seemed to understand it. The Cross Slider appeals to all their senses--they can smell the treats, they can see the ball, they can feel the ball, and they can taste the treats. There would be a lot of repeat value in this toy.






Enter to win your choice of either the Cross Slider OR the Tennis Slider (reviewed tomorrow)!
