Other Dog Stuffz | Dog Coats & Sweaters

Yes, this particular site is supposed to be devoted primarily to dog toys but, if you’ll notice, the actual name DT Stuffz also implies other stuffs, like dog stuff that may not be a dog toy. Ok??! Anyway, today we were actually talking about dog coats and whether or not a dog really needs the added warmth in winter. Well, I say yes! Think about it, your dog feels you when you scratch or tickle. One of my dogs loves to leave his head out of the window of my car and you know it’s to feel the wind rushing of his face. Why in the world would anyone expect that your dog or puppy wouldn’t feel the cold? Sure,...

No-squeaker eco-friendly organic dog toy – Sydney’s all time favorite

I can’t believe I found it... my all time favorite dog toy that has no squeaker in it. It’s a little different from the rope ball I found a while ago for my dog Sydney but it sure is close enough – it has an extra rope handle that the original rope ball didn’t have which makes it easier for tossing to my dog – and a little less slobber to come in contact with!!

Some of you have asked why we decided to point out the difference between dog toys that have squeakers in them and those that don’t. The diagram below shows the different sound elements that can be used in various interactive dog toys. You’ll also see many of them in most stuffed and soft plush dog toys too. The main thing to note is the size of the squeakers for these dog toys. Depending on the size of your dog, you will want to be careful in choosing the toy that has a noise maker or interactive part. There are a couple of reasons you may choose or not choose a particular interactive toy and that’s to help with our own...

Oprah Goes to the Dogs & Puppies Behind Bars

We love how so many celebrities are advocates for helping puppies and dogs. As you know our house is full of rescued dogs so we love to hear how others get that need! Oprah Winfrey is one of those wonderful celebrities. A few months ago Oprah added to her pack by adopting a couple of shelter puppies. We are sad to report that the adopted puppies were both diagnosed with the deadly parvo virus. One of the puppies didn’t make it, but one of them did. This month, and next, Sadie will help Oprah out with alerting the public to all sorts of animal needs both for dogs as well as for humans! Tomorrow, May 15th, Oprah will air her...
