Boston Terrier Attacks a Space Alien: We Review New Martian Dog Toys from Hear Doggy
Someone once asked me, "Why would you give Spot and Dolly a toy you know they will just destroy in five minutes?" This person did not have dogs, or I would not have had to explain that the pure pleasure they get from gutting and silencing a plush squeaky toy is worth any amount of ear-splitting noise and whatever money I spent.
That being said, I wouldn't mind a product that gave them similar satisfaction without the death cries and mess to clean up. Enter Hear Doggy, a line of ultrasonic plush squeaky toys with new technology that promises to stand up to even the toughest teeth. We were more than happy to give them a try.
I began our test by squeezing the squeaker from a few rooms away. Neither dog stirred. I headed to Spot's napping spot in my bedroom, squeezed the toy behind my back and woke the pup up. Dolly, a bit lazy thanks to the Benadryl keeping an outbreak of hives in check, ignored us as we headed to the backyard.
Once I threw the largest of the Martian toys to Spot, he did what he normally does with a new plush squeaky toy.
Paul has lasted longer than the usual five minutes his kind does in our house, which remains quiet and free of stuffing. Thank you, Hear Doggy.
Hear Doggy toys squeak in the ultrasonic range of 24 to 28 KHz frequency; dogs hear 0 to 45 KHz and humans 0 to 20 KHz. The toys come stuffed and flat (no stuffing), with the newest Martians line featuring Chew Guard Technology, a manufacturing process that includes a tough, durable liner and reinforced seams.
