Trixie Koontz Good Dog Collection

Pet Product Review – Trixie Kootz Good Dog Collection

When I picked up my puppy the other week, what did I do? I went straight to Petsmart and filled up a shopping cart full of the best toys, treats and puppy essentials. That first puppy shopping spree, if anyone doesn’t know is a significant spend. But seeing your puppy play with his favorite toy is completely priceless. With that, I was starting to write about Charlie’s favorite toy, his stuffed yellow butterfly plush squeaky dog toy by Trixie Kootz Good Dog Collection.


Sorry couldn’t find a pic with the toy, but its coming.

Anyway, as I was doing my research, I realized that Dean Koontz has a whole like of products and accessories brought to you exclusively by Petsmart. I applaud Dean Koontz and Petsmart as all of the royalties and proceeds go to the CCI charities. These products are adorable and fun and your pet will love them. Look for them at Petsmart. Here is their press release:
