First of all, a brand that already features in Bakers toy box, Gor Pets got in touch asking if he'd like some new toys to test out. Ever the hoarder, of course he said yes (and I did ask him!) and a week and a bit later there was a knock from the postman and we tore open a little parcel to reveal the above!
[I decided that to get a true view of how robust and fun the toys were that I would leave this post for a number of weeks so here it finally is!]
Baker has sat in his bed and just made it squeak over and over, he's splashed about with it in his swimming pool and thrown it around bouncing it down the path and thoroughly enjoys playing with it so that is a giant thumbs up from me.
I like this because it's not only something he can use alone or with us but he can play with his doggy friends with it too, as most other rope toys are far too small for two dogs to get a grip of and actually play tug of war. It's main claim however is that it keeps teeth and gums clean and healthy which I can actually vouch for, Bakers knashers are gleaming!
If you take a look online you'll be surprised at how affordable Gor Pets products are but also the vast range of, as they state on their website, 'quality, safe, ethical and beneficial pet accessories' they provide.
Other goodies Baker has been enjoying lately include a couple of items that I ordered from Barks and Bunnies for him to play with in his pool in the warm weather.
The Kong Aqua was intended for perhaps playing at the beach with (now that he can swim, eek!) but I'm too afraid of him deciding not to swim to it and us losing it like we have with 3 other toys haha! He has had fun with it in his swimming pool though so thats the main thing.
The Freeze n Chew is another story. This was the main item I wanted to order but it was out of stock :( Our lovely, amazingly helpful, customer service extraordinaire, friends at Barks and Bunnies did what they could to get this back in stock and I ordered it that day! Like the Gor Pets Gizmo, it was what he took to first and spent many of the sunny summer days chewing on it, keeping him cool just as I wanted.
I'll leave with with another video, this one of him opening his forage box. It's so funny!
