What makes the ‘squeak’ in a squeaky dog toy

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...

Removable Squeaker Dog Toy Recall

We are issuing our own Dog Toy Recall. We had mistakenly believed SimplyFido in their labeling of certain plush dog toys that we backed up here at DogToyStuffz.com. We were told, via the SimplyFido website, that they had products that were not only organic dog toys but that they offered these dog toys with removable squeakers. We even wrote about these great safe, soft, plush organic dog and puppy toys in our Cutest Organic Dog Toys article. We even invited Oscar The Monkey into our house! We are going to leave our original article up, but will be updating it with more appropriate information so you can keep up with us and our suggestions on safe organic dog toys. Note...

Cutest Organic Dog Toys – and safe with removable squeaker!

We are so excited to find these cutest ever soft plush organic dog toys – or puppy toys – from Simply Fido! They are not only safe because of their organic nature for dogs but they also have a removable squeaky. This is great for any pet owner because if you have concerns about the squeaker toy part for your dog or puppy you can simply remove it – or leave it in for those dogs who are drawn to the crazy squeaky noise when playing and chewing on their toys. Our dogs love the soft plush dog toys almost better than their hard rubber or plastic toys. We love these toys because they follow our personal safety concerns and...

Another reason for safe dog toys

Wow! It sure feels nice to know that creating the DogToyStuffz website is going to help a variety of people find truly safe dog and puppy toys. We just found out about a terrible situation for a Labrador-mix dog and why really paying attention to how a dog toy works is so important for the pets we love so much. Apparently, this 10 year old lab-mix was given a Four Paws Pimple Ball with Bell and his tongue got sucked into it. Yikes! And what a tragedy, they had to amputate his tongue! I can’t even imagine. Four Paws has recalled these un-safe dog toys for a refund or replacement. But seriously, folks, let’s try to understand the physics here...
