Hey there fellow dogs passionates such as myself, my name is Emma, and I’m a proud three dog mother or at least that’s how much I think I am to them.
I’ve discovered this affection I have for dogs since my 6th anniversary when my dad brought home a labrador, Teddy who was one of my best buddies if not the best in my childhood. Since then, I’ve become a permanent resident of dog shelters.
I even did a lot of beach-walks with different kinds of dogs. I really did enjoy those kinds of things that it made me in my humble opinion an expert on how to deal with dogs and make them not only in good health and behavior but also happier and loneliness.
Keeping up with the demands of two big dogs and satisfying their needs is a lot harder than you may think, especially when they live in your apartment. Things could get a little out of control.
It is why I am conducting a search for tools to keep them active in a controllable manner.
My strategy depends on using the best toys possible to keep our dogs in a good mood. Indeed, toys have their uses when it comes to make dogs playfull and have them spend their energy in doing so, toys could also draw their attention when needed to be.
Also, the shelter dogs help give me a different insight from the one I get with my dogs at home.
So yes, it’s pretty fair to say I spend A LOT of time researching and testing new toys and by now I pretty much know what works for me. And what can work for you too!
So, if you’re at all interested in unbiased, free, voluntary reviews of the newest dog toys, I welcome you again here. Check my reviews out and let me know if you agree/disagree or just need to know more.
Thank you for taking the time to read what I write, I hope you love it!
Our official dog toy testers
Roxy, the destroyer
Roxy is a Jack Russell mix. He’s about four years old.
He is obsessed with balls, particularly tennis balls and will chase them for as many hours as you’re willing to throw them or until he passes out (not that he ever did, we usually stop before that).
Roxy also loves to chew, so much so his canines are now a bit flatter than they’re supposed to be. He doesn’t mind it though, he just keeps on chewing.
But sometimes, he gets confused and ends up chewing other things as well, such as pillows, blankets, socks, pet beds and anything fluffy really. Hence his nickname.
Lola, the delightful
She is, she really is! She is also a Jack Russell mix, about three years old and she is simply the happiest dog alive!
We’ve never seen her sad or downcast, she is always content, always cheerful and it’s almost like she carries little sunshine beams with her, she just spreads the joy!
Lola also loves balls, but tennis balls are a little too subtle for her. She likes the big balls, basketballs, footballs, you name it. She’s that dog that steals your ball when you’re playing at the beach and just runs away with it and never comes back.
She also loves chewing but in a much more demure fashion than Tommy, so her teeth are still pretty and intact.
She’s girly and she loves it!
Dobby, the sourpuss
Dobby is a six-year-old Portuguese podengo mix who kind of thinks his a cat.
Do you know the character? Sad-eyed, big-eared Dobby from Harry Potter? That pretty much sums him up, except he is a bit chubbier than the house elf. But just as cute, really… And he knows it, of you ’re visiting, fully expect sad miserable eyes at mealtime peaking under the table.
He has no idea how to play with most toys. They either scare or bore him, he’ll chew on some, if he must, but not for long. His favorites are probably tree branches. Those he loves and fetches when he sees where they land because he is also a bit of a Mr. Magoo.
