The folks over at Pet Paws sent our office some wonderful pet toys: CrocoBob and Sharkiana. I’m not sure what to actually call the Pet Paws products; they are toys, but also puppets. Whatever you call them, they are fun and engaging!
Paw Pets bases its philosophy on not just having toys that you watch your pet play with, they encourage playing with your pet. Get into the action! And in doing so, you’re diminishing rough play like tug of war and encouraging them to play with a friend on healthy less aggressive level.
The Paw Pets do fit on your hands like a glove puppet, and each part is moveable. Our test panelist Keely the Lab played with CrocoBob. The construction is of durable polyester plush that will stand up to hours of play and puppy cuddlin’. However, I do not recommend this product for larger dogs as there is not much protection against strong bites. Remember your pup may know he’s playing with you, but he may not know it’s your hand inside the toy. I wouldn’t recommend this toy for Barney, President Bush’s Scottish Terrier quite yet.
At $29 per toy this may be the ideal holiday gift for the new puppy mommy and daddy or parents of smaller dogs and kitties. Go to www.getpawpets.com for ordering information.
