Toys and Products for Dogs

The Martha Stewart Show, March 2009

If you have dogs, you're likely on the lookout for new products that will help keep them healthy, entertained, and even challenged -- these pet products do exactly that!

Talk To Me Treat Ball

The Talk To Me treat ball, by Talk To Me Pet Products:

  • Won best new product at Global Pet Expo, the largest annual pet trade show in the world, in 2004.
  • Was ranked Best Toy by Tufts University because it appeals to a dog's five senses.
  • Rewards dogs for their actions. (There's a cat ball, too, only smaller.)
  • Can help with separation anxiety.
  • Can record a personal message as often as you like so it's like a new toy every day.
  • Can be filled with small treats or kibble.
  • Is available in three sizes: mini, small-med, and large, plus one for cats. (A new rubber version works great on hardwood floors.)
