Portland, Maine (September 2006) – More than half of the dog lovers nationwide will buy holiday gifts for their pets this year, according to the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association 2005-2006 National Pet Owners Survey. In 2004, 55% of them said they buy gifts for their dogs at Christmas at an average expense of $13 per gift. This pet gift giving trend continues to rise as more and more celebrate special occasions with their animal companions. To meet this growing demand, Planet Dog has created the new Orbee-Tuff® Bulb with Treat Spot™ and a Squeaky "Naughty or Nice" 2-Pack designed with holiday gift-giving in mind.
Deck the Halls with Bulbs of Orbee this Holiday Season
Orbee-Tuff® is Planet Dog's award-winning material used to make doggie-durable, buoyant and bouncy toys for dogs. The Bulb, a vintage holiday light bulb shape with an authentic silver threaded base and a peppermint scent, offers dogs of all sizes a festive, all-purpose dog toy made by elves in the USA. Hollow by design, the toy sports a Treat SpotÔ which is the perfect place for stuffing holiday leftovers - a practice that can entertain dogs for hours. Available in red, green and glow-in-the-dark, the Bulb with Treat Spot retails for $9.95.
He Sees You When You're Drooling. He Knows When You're Awake.
The Squeaky "Naughty or Nice" 2-Pack includes two 2.5" plush red balls embroidered with either "Naughty" or "Nice" in silver thread. Whether dogs are good or bad, their tails will wag for these new toys. Nicely packed with decorative "tinsel" in a clear reusable satchel with drawstring closure, this gift pack retails for $9.95.
