Boz dog ball review by WelcomePup.com

I just received a case of new West Paw Design Zogoflex Air dog toys. Today, I’m reviewing the Boz dog ball, a textured squishy dog ball for obsessive fetchers.

It looks like a brain.
Sydney with 4 inch BozIt’s made from Zogoflex Air material that is soft on a dog’s mouth.
Kimber and 4 inch BozFeatures include:

  • More durable than a tennis ball
  • Floats
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Non-toxic and recyclable
  • High bounce
  • Easy to grab
  • Made in the U.S.A.

Boz pair for blog
The Boz comes in two sizes, 2.5″ and 4″. I currently carry the Currant and Peacock colors. Available individually at WelcomePup.com and also as part of the Fetching Pup Dog Gift Box that includes a 2.5″ Boz and the new Dash flying disc, made from the same Zogoflex Air material but with a funky new shape and look.
I have three pet retrievers and am VERY particular about the toys they play with. They destroy or ingest plush toys and some solid ones. West Paw Zogoflex toys are THE ONLY TOYS I’D RECOMMEND FOR TOUGH CHEWERS. Trust me–I’ve paid the medical bills for the intestinal surgery when one of my pups ate a rope toy. Don’t buy rope toys–ever!

Kurgo Bench Seat Cover Product Review

by Bonnie Sweebe

WelcomePup.com Product Review

I was given a bench seat cover by Kurgo in exchange for an honest review of their product. This product review has a twist at the end–literally!

Kurgo Bench Seat Cover

There is one thing you can say about Kurgo dog products–they are made very well. The Car Seat Cover has a lifetime warranty, which means Kurgo unconditionally guarantees their product against manufacturing defects for the life of their product.

 

Lifetime Warranty

Out of the box this durable waterproof double-stitched seam canvas bench seat cover looked simple enough to install. It was. I’ll show you how!

Kurgo Bench Seat Cover

This is what it looked like out of the box. This is not a sexy fabric folks. This is a practical fabric. This is canvas and it’s going to look like canvas, but it’s durable, waterproof and easy to clean or scrub. It will protect your seats. It will get the job done!

The seat cover has two black loops on top (to be slipped over the rear bench headrest), an adjustable black strap that adjusts behind the bench seat you are covering to provide a snug fit, and a thin elastic cord under seat attachment. The under seat attachment has a single barrel cord lock that keeps the canvas from slipping off the bottom bench cushion. That’s a good thing.

What to Get a Dog for Christmas

What to get the dog for Christmas? Here are a few ideas from our golden retriever, Sydney, pretending to snooze with visions of dog toys dancing in her head. Sydney, Get Up!

what to get a dog for Christmas

Mom’s right. I was faking it. What dog toys would I like? Oh boy, oh boy!

Retrievers are soft mouthed dogs, but we love to chew toys. Okay, we love to destroy toys. If you’re like me, you may want to choose the following:

Two great toys from Kyjen are Plush Puppy Tuff Ones Christmas Tree and Candy Cane with a squeaker and a rattle. The seams are double stitched with nylon and the fabric is as tough as plush dog toy fabric can get. Available to send to a dog you love, get the Tuff Pup Holiday Gift Box and all the toys you’ll see below at WelcomePup.com.

For those pups who enjoy ice cubes and snow, there’s the Holiday Chill Gift Box, a combination of Kyjen’s Plush Puppy Tuff Ones Penguin and Planet Dog’s uber-tough Snowball.

Review: Remarkabowl Sports Themed Dog Bowls

It’s product review time and I have a great gift idea for sports lovers that share their couch or “Bark”alounger with their beloved furry friend. In exchange for an honest review of their product, my friends over at Remarkabowl sent me a few of their brand new bowls made just for pets. Skye and Sydney checked them out.

There they are, ready for the big game and eyeing up the Remarkabowls. They know the bowls are empty, but they can’t take their eyes off how realistic they look. Remarkabowls are the first pet bowls that are textured to feel like a real sports ball.

Remarkabowl pet food bowl

Made of 100% polypropylene and 100% BPA free (that’s a good thing!), these bowls are for food or water and meet all ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and FDA (U.S. Food & Drug Administration) safety standards. They are also taste and odor free. That’s important because when the girls eat, they want to smell their dog food. The bowls are dishwasher safe and tough enough for indoor or outdoor use.

Product Review: Ruha.com Custom Leather Dog Collars & More

I was contacted by Ruha.com who offered me their product in exchange for an honest review of their custom leather permanent laser engraved dog collar. Excellent. My creative juices flowed all over my laptop!

They directed me to their site to begin my custom production and I’ve got to tell you, it was fun! Here’s the final product. Now I’ll cover the design process in more detail.

Ruha.com leather dog collars

I decided to design a collar for the top dog at WelcomePup.com, Skye! She likes a three-quarter inch collar and her favorite color is red. They had both. Fantastic!

The sizing is as follows:

  • Small: 1/2 inch leather collar fitting a 8-14 inch neck.
  • Medium: 3/4 inch leather collar fitting a 13-20 inch neck.
  • Large: 1 inch leather collar fitting an 18-23 inch neck.
  • Extra Large: 1 1/2 inch leather collar fitting a 22-27 inch neck.

Next you select your leather color: vintage white, red or tan.

Now on to the engraving.

The collars use permanent laser engraving. There are 5 design choices available:

Book Review: Ask Anna by Dean Koontz and his dog Anna

Hi! Skye from WelcomePup.com here with my friend Kimber, a Canine Companions for Independence® service puppy hopeful, reviewing our latest good read:Ask Anna by Dean Koontz

When Kimber suggested this book, it didn’t surprise me. After all, Dean Koontz (storyteller extraordinaire and bestselling author) and his dog Anna (a Canine Companions for Independence® release dog) wrote it–so it had to be good!

In the book Ask Anna – Advice for the Furry and Forlorn, Dean’s dog, Anna, is a wise canine advice-columnist. She is also a beautiful golden retriever. Dogs from around the nation write to Anna about their problems and ask her for advice. Some questions are very serious…like “Dear Anna, Lately I have been depressed.”

Ask Anna by Dean Koontz

Other questions are funny, like “Dear Anna, When I turn my ears just so, I can see the future.” One dog REALLY liked Anna, if you know what I mean. She really put him in his place in a sweet yet clever way. We snorted at that one.
