Stuff We Love: Mutt Puppets

Oh fluff. Immortal enemy of dog owners everywhere. Seriously, just when you think you've cleaned it all up... there's always one rogue dust bunny lurking. 

In addition to being a nuisance, it's also hazardous for your pet, which is something Michael and Theresa Fraser, the founders of Muttpuppets, learned first hand. In 2003, their pup had a near death experience after having a little bit TOO much fun with a traditional stuffed toy. They transformed that experience into a business idea and Muttpuppets, stuffing-free toys for dogs, was born. 

We love this company for several reasons. First, safety is something that should be paramount in every pet companion's mind. If you wouldn't let a toddler play with marbles, why would you let your dog play with something that poses a risk? Second, we love people that are passionate about their pets. And third, we're big fans of supporting entrepreneurs and their ventures!

Their toys, which look like street tough muppets, feature NO FLUFF and combine a variety of entertainment features for your Barkista. Every Muttpuppet features three layers of durable cotton material, double stitched seams, sewn in squeakers and importantly-- embroidered faces (seriously... Paddy almost met her maker after detaching a stuffed googly eye from our pal the shag Lobster). 
Check out the treat pouch!
Muttpuppets was kind enough to let us test out the Original Muttpuppet and its sibbling, the Mini-Mutt. Both have sewn in cotton dog rope toys for arms and a really cool open-ended treat pouch. The Original Muttpuppet also features a detachable squeaker head for impromptu games of fetch. So far, Paddy is totally overwhelmed by all the fun things she can do with her new Muttpuppet. Initially she went for the rope toy, only to discover the secret (refillable) treat pouch, which got her immediate attention.
We can't wait to put our Muttpuppet and Mini-Mutt to the test, and will keep you updated!

In the meantime, pick up your Muttpuppet or Mini-Mutt from Muttpuppet's website for the affordable price of $11.99 and $8.00 repectively, and while you're there, check out their other Fido-friendly toys!
