Kyjen Dog Toys Review and Giveaway!

Doggy Days Post #7




Hi Neighbors,
You might remember that I have done a previous review with Kyjen. I love their dog toys. We recently bought Roxie a 2 pack of Dog Tennis Balls and she destroyed both of them within 3 days. I haven't figured out yet how a Morkie (Maltese Yorkie cross) does it, but she does. Not so with the toys Kyjen sent us. Normally I have to put her toys away when she is done playing so she doesn't chew them up when we are not watching, but with the Kyjen Ricky Racoon Squeaker Mat and the Boris Bee Hardboiled Softies I can leave them out for Roxie to play with. Especially the Boris Bee.


Above is one of Roxie's Tennis Balls.

The Ricky Racoon mat has realistic fur and looks like a flat racoon. He has 12 separate squeakers in his body and an extra grunt squeaker in his tail. Roxie loves him! All we have to do is make him squeak once or twice and she starts searching for him. The funniest thing is, if Shadow gets him first she actually tries to take Ricky away from Shadow! Shadow enjoys playing with the Ricky Racoon mat also.

Boris Bee is one of my favorite toys for Roxie (a Hardboiled Softie). Boris is a thick durable egg shaped rubber core, with a really loud squeak. Sounds sort of like a duck. The core is covered with a soft exterior cover that looks like a bee. It is a really great toy. Boris bounces around in irregular patterns. Roxie really enjoys playing fetch with Boris. Boris (at least for Roxie) is an indestructible toy. Even if she damages the the outer cover, I doubt she would be able to destry the core. My children love to squeak Boris for Roxie!

I have had a chance to try out some different toys from Kyjen and have always been pleased. Of course they have many difeerent toys available. You might want to like Kyjen on Facebook.

Kyjen is going to send the winner of this giveaway one Squeaker mat and one Hardboiled Softie.


Roxie and Shadow give Kyjen a Paws up!

I have two black labs (2 years old each) and they destroy every toy they get and they have gotten lots. They chew them up, rip them apart, play tug o'war with them until their history but we love them all the same.
