Dog Toys by Kyjen: Squeaker Mat Character Sheep! Enter to Win!

Hi everyone! It’s Dakota!  Anyone that knows ANYTHING about Shetland Sheepdogs knows that we are herders, and there is a certain animal that we just LOVE to herd. Sheep!!! Don’t believe me? See for yourself!

See? I told ya!

A few weeks ago I was sitting around feeling kinda blue and I couldn’t figure out why. Then it dawned on me! It hit me like a bolt out of the blue! I had NO SHEEP to herd!

I walked over to Mom and tapped her with my paw. I directed her to the computer and told her with my barks that since I test toys for Kyjen I felt the toy that I should test next should be a Sheep! Brilliant idea wasn’t it? Look at what Mom found! It’s the:

It was the answer to my prayers!! Not only could I herd this Sheep but :

It’s like Bubble Wrap for dogs!

Row after row of squeakers create long-lasting fun for dogs

It’s plush, it is super  soft and it squeaks! It squeaks everywhere!

The squeaker mats are durable, and if I were to take out a squeaker, (which I haven’t), there are plenty more inside of the toy!

I love to shake this squeaker mat, I run around with it, it’s so much fun! Unfortunately, Mom couldn’t shoot a video of me playing with my Squeaker Mat Character Sheep  because I will only play with it when she isn’t pointing a video camera in my face!  Let me show you a video on the Kyjen web site that shows other squeaker  mat toys made by Kyjen that are the same concept, they just aren’t the Sheep.

When I’m not playing with my sheep I often will sleep with it! Let me tell you my furiends you will love this and guess what? You can enter to win!!! My buddies at Kyjen are going to give THREE LUCKY DOGGIES (We apologize but U.S. only due to shipping costs) their own Squeaker Mat Sheep, just like mine!

HOW TO ENTER: Just leave a comment telling me why you want to win the Kyjen Squeaker Mat Character Sheep! Hurry and enter! The contest will close Tuesday, January 15 at 5pm and the winner will be announced Thursday, January 17th!


Barks and licks and good luck!!

Friday Fun Find! Bionic® Pet Products And A Give-Away!

Hi everyone! It’s Dakota! Wow what a week it has been hasn’t it? Hurricanes, Halloween, a dog doesn’t get a break does he? Well, today I am bringing you a MUCH NEEDED break and A LOT OF FUN!

Today I am honored to present to you

 Bionic® Pet Products!!

About Bionic® Pet Products 

Bionic® Pet Products was launched after the Luhrs family dog, Duke, successfully destroyed another new toy with ease.  They combined their knowledge of designing products for strength, their scientific expertise in materials that are durable and were able to create toys that stand up to the most aggressive doggies, no matter how much they chew! That’s right up my alley!

Several weeks ago I was given the opportunity to try the BIONIC BALL (which is featured on the bottom left)



also called the BIONIC FLYER

which is featured on the bottom right

The toy on the top left is the BIONIC BONE

on the top right is the BIONIC STUFFER

As many of you sadly know, Mom’s camera and video skills are sometimes kinda lame. Mom’s photos/video of me didn’t do the toys justice, so the kind folks at Bionic® Pet Products shared the above photo and the photo below:

The Bionic Flyer or the Bionic Toss N Tug “The Toss-N-Tug’s center has been designed to provide strength to the overall design, while offering dogs several options on where to pick up the toy to bring it back to you.”



What is super cool is these particular toys are a part of the expansion of  Bionic® Pet Products popular line of ultra-tough toys into MEDIUM AND SMALL sized toys! That means that now not just the BIG BOYS (or GIRLS) get to have fun, we medium-sized and small dogs get to have fun too!

Why did Bionic® Pet Products want to include miniaturized additions? The answer is easy-peasy! Bionic® Pet Products wants to provide shoppers with more options when selecting the proper size and shape for their pet.  When designing their toys, Bionic® Pet Products demonstrates an advanced understanding of geometry and science. Each size and shape is specifically tailored for the appropriate dog’s bite and strength.

To make it easier to choose the appropriate size for your dog, Bionic® Pet Products has included a size chart:



Bionic Ball

– Small (1-20 lbs) NEW

– Medium (15-35 lbs)




Bionic Bone

– Small (1-20 lbs) NEW

– Medium (15-35 lbs)

Bionic Toss-N-Tug

– Mini (1-35 lbs) NEW

– Standard (15-60 lbs)



Bionic Stuffer

Don’t ya just love the Halloween-ish color of these toys? The are such a cheerful orange! Bionic® toys are flexible, bouncy, and practically puncture proof. Even with my shark-like teeth! They are made from FDA Food Grade materials that are non-toxic.

They come in innovative shapes and the great color makes them easy to see while playing outside or in the water.

Speaking of PLAYING,  WANNA WIN?
