I was hoping to hold off doing this review until summer. After all the Ruff Wear Hydro Plane is a soft disc that is (according to Ruff Wear’s website) “built for dogs that love to play fetch in or around water”. Cassie and Moxie got this toy for Christmas, a present from my sister in Seattle and her two Shiloh Shepherds. Each dog got one. Honestly, the toy is so lightweight, I was afraid the dogs would destroy it before spring, so we put one toy away for pool use, and kept one out for the dogs to play with in the house.
It’s back! Last week, I started to post about our favorite winter toy, the Ruff Dawg K-9 Flyer. Unfortunately, before I had a chance to take many pictures, the toy went missing! We eventually found it, trapped under the deck, where I presumed it would stay until the snow melts, sometime in July by the looks of things here in Boston.
My sister told us about trying deer antlers for chew toys, so we’ve been experimenting with them at our house since November. Our first try was a 5″ section of antler. At about $10, we decided to buy one and see if they liked it. Of course, we immediately learned that sharing a chewie was not going to bring peace to our household, as both dogs really liked the chew and spent a lot of energy trying to steal it away from each other.
We have two AWESOME tough toys to review this week. The Tuffy’s Mega Creature Large Octopus Dog Toy, Tiger Print and the Tuffy’s Mega Ring Dog Toy were Cassie and Moxie’s birthday gifts this past November. They’ve had tons of play now for about two months and both toys are showing no signs of wear. We are so happy with these toys and the dogs love them!
My friends who run Canine University suggested this toy for review. They have a large pack of active Golden Retrievers (including Cassie’s Mom, Cameo), and they love this toy. Schnoodleware.com is a local company that makes fleece dog toys, blankets and dog coats. We decided to try the Criss Cross & Toss toy because the website suggested this toy for multiple dog households. That’s us!
