In August of 2007, Aim to Beginn, LLC was formed based on the mission to create a product that would raise and sustain awareness of animal abuse and to give back to animal support organizations thru the sales of The Official Vick's Dog Chew Toy.  Since it's inception, the toy has been in high demand by dog lovers and football fans all over the world.  Dogs everywhere are chewing on Vick - in the USA, Canada, the UK, Iraq, Mexico and everywhere in between!

The Lapdogs were more than happy to join in the chew-fest, but seemed to be disappointed in the lack of a squeaker.  Zeus happily tossed it up in the air repeatedly, then proceed to bite and stomp on it...

Darren Usher, President and CEO of Aim to Beginn, LCC says "Many have asked how we created this product and how this endeavor surfaced and became reality. The simple answer is we were motivated, frustrated, appalled, and taken over by a self proposed call of duty to make a difference. That is how The Official Vick Dog Chew Toy came to life and that is why it continues to go strong more than 2 years after being announced to the public."

Thanks for Your Review on the Vicks Chew Toy. That is exactly how I Feel about the guy, he should be all chewed up and the spit back out! I Feel he has no business playing football,except in jail, but the famous always get away with everything!

Uncle just read his first blog. His favorite photo was Zeus... the one where only Vick's knees down are visible. I love it!!!!!! Of course, should we win, the toy would have to go to Uncle's pack...

I love it! What better way to show how I feel about Vick than by letting the ladies chew him up! In his early years, I had positive feelings about Vick. He had come from a tough background and seemed to be successful without falling victim to the fame and fortune. His younger brother, however, was a mess. Then the dogfighting came out and I was so thoroughly disgusted and appalled by the bits of information that I heard. I cannot imagine condoning something like that, nevermind participating in it. You cannot be human. As for Vick's punishment, it was too weak. If he had served a decent sentence, I'd be willing to give him a second chance. But he just got a slap on the wrist. I hope that he understands the error of his ways and puts a lot of effort into promoting proper pet care and treatment and becomes an advocate for animals. (I can dream, can't I?!)

This is great Nichole! Thank you for your nice comments on my quilt. I'm hoping to finish the grass tomorrow and maybe get the binding started. I know the recipient is going to be really surprised and I hope she likes it and that it doesn't make her sad. xxxooo

What a perfect pet gift! I can't think of any human more deserving of a good chewing by my Zeus and he'll probably wind up buried in the backyard for good measure.

I'd get one for each of my babies but, alas, Apollo and Electra don't really relish chew toys the way Zeus does. We don't call him "Chewie" for nothing.

Ugh, what can I say about Vick? Seems serial killers always start out abusing animals...is this next for him?

He's not worth my time.

My word verification word is "disers". How appropriate to diss Vick.

While I love the concept of the toy, I'm afraid to give them to my dogs. I bought 10 of them and the first two were ripped arpart withing the first 10 minutes. One by my smallest dog (about 25lbs). There were tiny pieces of plastic legs all over that I had to pick up to keep the dogs from swallowing. Are these things guaranteed to be safe???

Our New Beginning said...

I love it!! Thank you for your review of this toy, I have yet to get one but if I were to win, I am sure my Arwen (8 month old APBT) would love to just chew him up!! I can not stand that man and can not believe that the Eagles resigned him...how do we not know he's still fighting? Do the police have patrol on him 24/7? I think not! He disgusts me, I think I would rather chew him up!!!

Good luck to everyone that posts!!

I've bought several of these, 1 for my dog - who has learned the command "Get the Vick!" & has made Vick leg-less. Gave the others as gifts & they were a big hit. It's fun for us, fun for the dogs, & generates donations for a good cause. I'd call that a perfect gift for any dog-lover!

Even though we live in Canada and don't watch the footballs we hate only one football player and that's Vick!

Great blog, by the way... we'll be back!

My pit tore it apart in 5 minutes. First went the feet then the legs, and then the head....unrecognizable except for the #7. Too bad Vic didn't get the same treatment. I was kind of going for the Voodoo doll.

Nice to support such a cause, but I didn't care for "Made in China" mark.

I have 3 Bully breeds and want to try this chew toy out!! The only thing mine can't destroy is Nylabones... I want one just to take pics of them chomping on Vick's ugly self!
