When left alone for too long, dogs tend to calm their nerves either by chewing up furniture or dressing up in your clothes and speaking in your voice. Give your dog something better to do with this Groupon.
$13 for $27 Worth of Dog Toys
Pet owners can treat pups to a combination frisbee-and-water-bowl ($13.99) or entertain pets with a squeaky toy that dispenses treats ($18.99). All of the toys are crafted from a special mix of FDA-approved rubber, with each toy color pertaining to a charity that receives 20% of profits.
It started out as a way to get an A, but now Dura Doggie helps people in need throughout the world. When a trio of entrepreneurial undergrads were told to come up with a fake product to demonstrate their business savvy, they immediately settled on a simple concept: durable dog toys. The idea proved so popular, the group decided to take the leap and mass produce their toys, using a signature blend of nontoxic rubber that would outlast energetic chewing by toothy pups or teething cacti. When sales started flowing in, the group decided to share the profits, donating 20% of each toy’s profits to one of four charities as part of the Chews Your Cause program.
Additionally, all the toys have dual purposes, with the original frisbee doubling as a water dish to hydrate after a bout of catch and squeaker toys rewarding dogs’ ingenuity with dispensed treats. The toys come in a range of sizes to best suit the bites of different breeds and are composed of eco-friendly materials that float in water while giving off a light vanilla scent. All the toys come bearing a quality guarantee, which ensures a replacement for any toy torn apart within 15 days of purchase.
