PrideBites Dog Toys contacted me on Twitter: Had I heard of their toys? Would I look at their toys? My answers were “No” and “Sure – no promises.” I don’t review items I don’t like. I don’t review quickly. My only promise is I won’t trash a product; if I don’t like something I just don’t talk about it.
So far there is a lot I don’t talk about.
Two of PrideBites toys arrived over a month ago. They are flat, firm, foam-filled toys which makes them unique. Pip apparently likes the feel as she carries them around chomping on them and even naps with them. (Which is off the charts cute in my book, pix below.)
Pip and I put these novel toys through their paces. We tossed and tugged. She chomped and I inspected. And you know what? They are still in one piece as we demonstrate in this video review:
Couple of notable features: Squeaker is stitched in place. Pip still destroyed it in seconds but she did not attempt to remove it. She has not attempted to destuff it either. The fabric is durable with heavy duty stitching. With our use, seams opening and punctures were slow to appear and not life threatening to the toyness of it all.
- If you have a gnawer, who puts toys in the back of their jaws, then this is for supervised play only. It is not a chew toy.
- It’s firmness makes it hard to Pip to catch. Disc dogs will have no problems and these might well be a great started toy for up-and-coming disc lovers.
- They also float but would sit so low in the water that I’d guess pool use would be the best use.
What do I think? I think this is a nice addition to the dog toys of the world. Use PrideBites under supervision, don’t leave them out with destructo-dogs (leave them durable toys) and you should get good, long use from them.
