WHY we love Planet Dog

We love the Planet dog toys because they are non-toxic, eco-friendly, outrageously durable, and 100% guaranteed. By 100% guaranteed, we mean if your dog destroys this toy, bring it back and you get a new one! Over the years we have refined our favourites based on value for money, durability and assistance for providing fun & enrichment for pooch! We have selected the toys that place on the 5/5 chompers scale indicated below; The Durability Rating  CHEW-O-METER Perfect round shape For the most aggressive chewers 5 - 5 out of 5 Chompers "Roundish Shape" For fairly aggressive chewers 4 - 4 out of 5 Chompers Non-ball Shape For moderate chewers 3 - 3 out of 5 Chompers Important note stressed by Planet Dog: no dog toy is indestructible, small pieces may be torn off and create a choking hazard. Toys should be inspected regularly and not left with any dog unattended. If damage occurs, replace/bring back the toy for replacement immediately! All the toys have a hole on each end so if by some weird accident they swallowed the toy hole, there is an way for air to passthrough and avoid suffocation. With our experience, the toys we have selected by trialling with pups that attend our daycare as well as our own pets at home, these have limited pieces that can fall/ be chewed off which could create a choking hazard BUT we do need to say let you know that with all toys with a dog they do pose a risk if left unattended. The toys we have chosen can also be used to pop their kibble or other homemade frozen treats to go in. All but one fit the Acana and Orijen Kibble which we also sell! I use lots of them with Frankie who usually takes 3 minutes before destroying toys (RIP Kmart toys..) so I've loved that these have provided longevity. Our current Planet Dog range in no particular order.. Orbee-Tuff DIAMOND PLATE BALL

Everyone knows diamond plate is a dog's best friend. The Diamond Plate Ball is a tried and true favourite, ranking among our most durable offerings. The round, single colour mold, coupled with the textured finish makes for an outrageously durable, exceedingly dynamic dog toy. Colour: Steel, Orange Sizes: Medium (76mm) Chew-o-meter Rating: 5 out of 5 Price: $22 Kibble test: PASS (tested by putting Acana Puppy & Junior food inside) Frankie test: Frankie the spoilt Boxer does not have this toy...yet.

Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Diamond Double Plated

Double stuff the Double-Tuff®. We double-dog dare you! Inspired by our extra tough Diamond Plate balls, the Double-Tuff is made from the same doggie-durable, bouncy, buoyant and mint-scented Orbee-Tuff® material. Its asymmetrical “doubled” design makes for amazingly unpredictable bounces, making it a toy that can stimulate a dog mentally much more than a standard fetch toy. Colour: Steel, Orange Sizes: Small (75mm), Medium (100mm), Large (125mm) Chew-o-meter Rating: 5 out of 5 Price: S: $15. M:$23 L:$27 Kibble test: PASS (tested by putting Acana Puppy & Junior food inside) Note: the size "S" only fits the Acana Small Breed Puppy which has tiny pellets. Frankie test: She LOVES it and hasn't destroyed it. Winner winner!! Frankie has the size: L so we could use it to feed her her dinner in the Orbee instead of bowl feeding. She eats Orijen Original and it squeezes SO MUCH MORE FOOD in it than a Kong, I usually give it a squeeze so I can fit more kibble in there which makes it take a bit longer to get any food out of it. Frankie has all her food at dinner now so we fill this up a few times and her Kong to keep her going.

Behind the name: This ball gives back, and that's GOOD! 100% of the proceeds made by Planet Dog of the best-selling Orbee-Tuff® Glow for Good Ball go directly to the Planet Dog Foundation, which funds the training, placement and support of dogs who are saving human lives. So that's good, right? But so is the fact that it is doggie-durable for all chewers, and it glows in the dark!  Colour: Glow Sizes: 64mm - 127mm Chew-o-meter Rating: 5 out of 5 Price: S: $20.50. L: $22 Kibble test: Pass with Orijen Original + Acana Puppy Junior Kibble. Frankie test: Pass! Frankie loves it, it's easier to find it when she boops it under the sofa too...
