We have been fans of Planet Dog ever since Zeus was a puppy. Not only is their resume and reputation hard to beat, but they are a Maine company and we love supporting New England based businesses!

If you find yourself in the Portland, Maine area, we highly recommend a visit to the Planet Dog Company Store. You'll find all of the products you see online, as well as many others, plus a full grooming salon. And, you're more than likely to be greeted by a friendly furry "employee" while shopping (your dogs are welcome too).

 

The Lapdogs recently received two new Planet Dog toys to help get them in the Earth Day spirit. Both are made in the USA, which makes their Mom smile too.

Orbee Ball with Rope

The Orbee Ball and it's familiar world design is what put Planet Dog on the map. Fittingly, it's been called the "world's best dog ball" by many industry experts. It's durable, buoyant, bouncy, chewy and minty fresh!

And it just got a little upgrade. With the addition of a bright yellow rope, your dog can not only fetch, but she can play tug with this Orbee too.

The Orbee Ball with Rope is available in two sizes - Medium 3" and Large 4"

Recycle Bone

Planet dog makes toys, not waste, and they're always looking for ways to reuse and recycle. No matter what they do, there will always be a certain amount of excess material as a result of their molding process. In an effort to virtually eliminate waste, the Orbee Tuff Recycle line was developed.

This line truly represents the term "recycle," as the toys are made with 100% of the left-over material. We think that is absolutely awesome and truly a way to reduce the brand's carbon paw-print!


The Recycle Bone is 6.5" in length and features the slogan "reduce. reuse. rewoof." While it is available in several colors, the color you receive will vary depending upon current supply (again, it's made with 100% recycled material).

I'll be in Portland, Maine this summer and I'll have to visit! Planet Dog sounds like a great company.

Sustainable products and they donate a portion of proceeds AND they're a Maine company? What's better than that!? I love that earth ball, it's adorable! Looks very durable too

They make nice toys. We recently gave one of their balls as a present.

Nice! Happy Earth Day. I never heard of Planet Dog before however like it when organizations can use part of their profits to pay it forward.

Beth Patterson said...

Happy Earth Day! I know these would be a big hit with Theo and possibly my Sophie. I love that they are made with recycled materials in the US.

I love Planet Dog toys and have both of those! Different colors. I have about 5 or so other styles too. Great quality and wonderful cause.

Karen H. said...

Eco-friendly and made in USA, give this line two paws up! I've looked for toys The Poodle Pair can't tear up, that they'll play with. Like the intention of this company, definitely one to check out! Thanks for sharing!

Dash Kitten said...

I keep hearing a lot of positive things about Planet Dog, and Made in the USA - has to be a BIG selling point.

I would rather buy USA made, or British made cat toys and accessories as I know they will be safer and not made 'on the cheap'.

Molly Mednikow said...

Happy Earth Day! I love these toys, and I really love that Planet Dog has a charitible foundation. Wouldn't it be great if other companies followed their example. I for one, prefer to shop at Planet Dog now that I know this information! And like Dash Kitten says....made in the USA is vital. I always enjoy your well written blogs!

My mom is always on the search for appropriate toys for her dog. They need to be something he wants to play with, safe, and long lasting. I'll have her check out Planet Dog.

Robin Mudge said...

That Orbee Ball is so cute! Your dog can have the whole world in their paws. :) Using recycled materials for pet toys is such a great idea! Dogs go through a ton of toys. This sounds like a wonderful company.

We love Planet Dog! Bean is particularly fond of their artichoke and strawberry toys. I do love that they smell minty and I also love how easy it is to clean them off with a rinse in the sink if they roll in dirt. I didn't know we could visit their home base in Maine. That'll be something we put on our to do list for this summer! Thanks for sharing!
