Not sure what to get your pooch for Valentine's Day this year? Let Planet Dog help with their Valentine's picks! Orbees, Slobber-Wicks and Squeakies galore... there's sure to be something to please your pack!

It didn't take long for the testers to get an up close look...

The adorable Squeaky Baby Blanket Buddy was most definitley the most popular item from this batch of review products!

Soft as can be, this toy is perfect for comforting, nuzzling and snuggling whenever your pup needs a buddy. If they made a super sized one, I'd steal it for a pillow (think soft as Brookstone's nap Collection, only much cuter)! The fabric naturally absorbs familiar scents and your pooch will make this toy a constant companion! The squeaker will keep pup entertained as well...

Squeaky Baby Blanket Buddy comes in two sizes, lil' pup is 5½" high and big pup is 8" high.

For those who may prefer a squeak-free buddy, check out the fantastic Slobber-Wick Squeakless Buddy!

PlanetDog_109_DroolMoreBuddy

This strong, silent type is machine washable and comes in three sizes to accommodate a wide range of droolers: small is 5", medium is 8" and large is 12". It also comes in a bone shape as well. These buddies are one of the best made plush toys we've ever had in our house! They are cleverly made with a gusset to add extra durability and chomp to your dog's gnawing experience. We've had 2 other Slobber-Wicks in our house for months now and neither has been destuffed or gotten any holes - a truly historic feat in a 4-doggy household!

If you're in the market for something minty fresh - and of appropriate Valentine's Day colors - check out the Orbee-Tuff Mint, where retro candy meets nouveau drool!

Made in the USA, this bouncy mint is very much doggie durable and it makes an incredibly sweet gift for adventurous pooches of all shapes and sizes.

"What's you talking about Mr. Mint??"

You've got some humans on your Valentine's list you say? Perhaps a well deserving doggy Daddy or Mama? Treat them to a Who's Your Doggie or You Had Me at Woof t-shirt, both of which come in standard adult white tees, as well as ladies cut blue and pink tees. Mr. Lapdog is happily enjoying this one...

I like the squeakless toy. Maybe my guys wouldn't be so quick to rip things apart if there was no squeaker to find. You sure have some lucky dogs that get to try out all these new products.

I wonder if my girls would play with a squeakerless toy?

My buddy Zeus doesn't look too happy with the mint on him...

we went flat on toys this year so the fluff does not end out in the yard, eventually! But squeekers she loves! Nice post, lots of good info.
