Cycle Dog Toys
Dogs love novelty, but even more, they like treats! I’m loving the new durable toys from Cycle Dog, who makes products from post-consumer recycled non-toxic materials. I have their doggie bag dispenser, so I was eager to try out their Ecolast treat-hiding toys.
My dog Maddie spent a good half-hour trying to get all the wet food out of the pink 3-Play Hippo’s belly, which squeaks, floats and hides treats. For some dogs the squeak is the thing, and the head of the toy has a strong squeaker.
The Hippo and Cycle Dog’s also adorable 3-Play Turtle both float. Some consumers report that their dogs chew off the toy’s legs, but the rest of the toy still lasts and retains its treat hiding, squeaking and floating qualities. For monster chewers, I’d recommend putting the toy away when a dog isn’t fetching it out of the water or licking treats out of it. This adorable, durable toy would make a great gift!
