Brainy Bones help dogs become Brainiacs

One of the absolute hottest dog toys - Brainy Bones help dogs become brainiacs!

Brainy Bones are the newest and most unique interactive, treat dispensing dog toy puzzles on the market. Recommended by veterinarians and dog professionals to provide enrichment and mental stimulation, and very helpful in keeping those pups occupied, happier and healthier during the upcoming busy holiday season, each toy in the Brainy Bones family presents its own unique challenges that require skill, manipulation, and thought.

  • Whirl-a-Bone (Blue) - The most challenging of the three Brainy Bones has a rotating hatch that covers and hides treats inside its hollowed center. Just whirl open the hatch, hide the dog’s favorite treats inside, then close it and let them work to reveal the goodies.

  • Tug-a-Bone (Yellow) - Provides a medium challenge to dogs and features a retractable pivoting inner section that holds and hides treats. Fill the inner section with a dog's favorite treat, then close it and let them enjoy discovering the hidden reward.

  • Peek-a-Bone (Green) – Is the easiest challenge of the three Brainy Bones and opens at one end to expose treats hidden inside its hollow core. To fill it and hide a dog’s favorite treats inside, just pry open the end, close it and latch it. The latch remains locked until your dog opens it to enjoy the treat inside. Peek-a-Bone is a great toy for puppies and puppies in their developmental stages, as well as a great toy to fill with peanut butter for a more advanced challenge.

“At Brainy Bones, we believe that every caring pet parent turns to name brands they know and trust when looking for an effective, quality-made enrichment toy for their dog,” shared Mike Conde, inventor of Brainy Bones. “That's why, as a new company, we've started our toy-making journey bound and committed to earning the trust of pet parents with two simple missions: First, to consistently design fun, challenging and intellectually stimulating treat-dispensing toys for your beloved dog. And second, to develop these toys with safe, quality materials to ensure we're doing our part to keep your pets happy and healthy.”

Brainy Bones Company takes great pride in creating a new generation of enrichment toys and contributing to the mental stimulation, intellectual development, and engaged play of your pets. More than just manufacturing fun or interesting toys, Brainy Bones goal from the very beginning has been to make a difference in dog's lives. With Brainy Bones toys, your dog will stay interested in learning and exploring, as each toy in the Brainy Bones family require its own unique level of skill, manipulation, and thought as a part of the process of providing the intellectual stimulation and growth that your dog needs.

All three of the Brainy Bones puzzle toys are USA engineered and designed, durable, made of non-toxic recyclable rubber, and super easy to clean. With three different challenges there’s a Brainy Bone for every level of brainy-ness!

-The Nobbly Nubbly chew toy holds natural rawhide treat rings for long-lasting playtime. –

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. PetSafe is pleased to introduce the new Busy Buddy® Nobbly Nubbly treat holding chew toy. The Busy Buddy® line of dog toys and treats is designed for longer lasting playtime. Each Busy Buddy® toy is created with a unique experience in mind, to help redirect potentially destructive behavior into positive playtime.

The Busy Buddy® Nobbly Nubbly features durable nylon ends and a compressible center to give dogs stimulating surfaces to chew. The Nobbly Nubbly also holds Busy Buddy® treat rings to reward dogs for good chewing behavior and to encourage extended playtime and the grooves on the center of the toy can even be filled with smearable treats like cheese or peanut butter.

“So often we see dogs play with their toys for a few minutes and then want something else,” said PetSafe Brand Manager Robin Hawn. “These toys are a great option because not only do the rawhide rings keep them entertained for longer, but the smearable treat option allows owners to give their dogs more treat variety with the same toy, making it a fun new experience every time.”

To use, screw apart the Nobbly Nubbly and place a rawhide treat ring on either side of the center piece. Screw the toy back together and let the fun begin! Each Nobbly Nubbly toy is packaged with 4 natural rawhide treat ring refills. Refills are also available separately in 16-piece packs.

The Nobbly Nubbly is top rack dishwasher safe for easy cleaning and available in four sizes: extra small for dogs under 10 lbs., small for dogs 10-25 lbs., medium for dogs 25-50 lbs., and large for dogs 50-90 lbs.

-The Magic Mushroom helps prevent dogs from consuming their food too fast while providing entertainment and stimulation. -

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. PetSafe is pleased to introduce the new Busy Buddy® Magic Mushroom™ toy and meal dispenser in one. The Busy Buddy® line of dog toys and treats is designed for longer lasting playtime. Each Busy Buddy® toy is created with a unique experience in mind, to help redirect potentially destructive behavior into positive playtime.

The Busy Buddy® Magic Mushroom™ randomly dispenses small portions of a dog’s meal instead of giving him full access to an open food bowl. By extending mealtime, the Magic Mushroom™ helps prevent dogs from consuming food too quickly.

The multi-functional Magic Mushroom™ not only slows down food consumption, but also turns mealtime into playtime. As the toy is tipped, flipped and rolled, kibble will randomly dispense to encourage further play. By increasing activity levels during mealtime, the Magic Mushroom™ can be used as a tool to assist with weight management efforts.

To use, simply twist off the base to load with kibble and let the fun begin! Treat dispensing windows under the cap can be adjusted to increase the challenge over time.

The Magic Mushroom™ is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning and is available in two sizes: small for dogs under 20 lbs., and medium/large for dogs over 20 lbs.

New research confirms adoption is the best option;
study shows better experience than pet store purchases

NEW YORK—October is officially recognized as Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month and the ASPCA® (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) is urging animal lovers across the country to commemorate the occasion by doing their part to help raise awareness for homeless animals.

The observation of Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month brings attention to the plight of homeless animals in every community and the unfortunate fact that only 20 to 30 percent of cats and dogs are adopted from shelters and rescue groups.

“There are 3 to 4 million dogs living in shelters nationwide who would make a fantastic addition to anybody’s family, all they need is a second chance,” said Gail Buchwald, senior vice president of the ASPCA Adoption Center. “During Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month, the ASPCA encourages everyone to visit their local shelter, adopt one of these amazing animals or help us spread the word to potential pet owners to make pet adoption their first option.”

A newly released poll conducted by Edge Research and commissioned by the ASPCA reveals that individuals who adopt a dog from a shelter are much more likely to be happy with their experience than consumers who purchase a dog from a pet store. In addition, adopters (77 percent) are more likely to feel that overall bringing the dog into their home has been a positive experience compared to pet store dog owners (63 percent). Shelter dog adopters (74 percent) are also more likely than pet store dog owners (40 percent) to feel that the process through which they got their dog was honest and transparent, and they are twice as likely as pet store consumers to recommend the place where they got their new dog to a friend (71 percent of adopters and 35 percent of pet store purchasers). Further, the research shows that dogs from shelters tend to require less veterinary care than those purchased from pet stores.

“The ASPCA’s research confirms that adoption really is the best option when it comes to adding a new dog to your home,” said Cori Menkin, senior director of the ASPCA Puppy Mills Campaign. “Most pet store puppies come from puppy mills, and we continue to urge those who are looking for a new companion to adopt a dog from a shelter so that the puppy mill industry becomes unsustainable.”

There are tons of ways to get involved this October, ranging from sending a single tweet to making the commitment to adopt. Here are some ways the public can get involved and make a difference during Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month:

  • Adopt, Don’t Shop. Visit your local shelter or rescue organization and give a lucky dog a loving home. Consumers who purchase a puppy from a pet store or website run the risk of taking home an unhealthy puppy in addition to the likelihood of supporting the cruel puppy mill industry. Operators of puppy mills breed dogs in unsanitary, overcrowded conditions where profit is given priority over the well-being of the dogs.
  • Take the Pledge. Join the more than 100,000 people who have already taken the “No Pet Store Puppies” pledge to help fight puppy mill cruelty by refusing to buy anything—including food, supplies or toys—at pet stores and on websites that sell puppies.
  • Spread the Word. Spread the adoption message to all of your friends and followers online! Join the ASPCA in a live Ustream event on October 30 from 7 to 8 p.m. when veterinarians and behaviorists will be chatting and answering your best pet questions. A Halloween costume contest will also be held, with prizes being awarded in several categories. In addition, send a Tweet with Twitter®, post a Facebook® status, shoot a YouTube® video, take an Instagram® photo, and pin on Pinterest® throughout the entire month of October; every mention makes a difference.
  • Get Active for Animals. Volunteering at your local shelter is a great way to make a difference in the lives of shelter dogs. Volunteers can take dogs for walks, socialize them, make the rounds during meal times, or just offer a friendly face for attention. Rescue organizations are always in need of supplies; gather up gently used blankets, towels and toys from friends and family to donate—just be sure to check first to see what rescue groups and shelters need most.

Gov. Brown signs bill prohibiting the cruel use of dogs in hunting bears, bobcats

NEW YORK— The ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) today commended California legislators and Gov. Jerry Brown for enacting Senate Bill 1221 to prohibit the cruel and unsporting practice of “hounding” bears and bobcats. Sponsored by Sen. Ted Lieu (D-Torrance), the new law bans the use of packs of dogs to chase and kill wildlife for trophy hunting. California now joins the more than 30 states that do not permit the inhumane and unnecessary practice of hounding.

“Today Governor Brown has ended a blatant and needless form of animal cruelty,” said Nancy Perry, senior vice president of ASPCA Government Relations. “We commend him for signing Senator Ted Lieu’s bill into law and for adding California to the list of states where hounding is no longer allowed. Enactment of this law illustrates that when citizens are opposed to a cruel practice, their elected officials will listen and take action on their behalf.”

Hounding involves fitting dogs with radio devices that allow the bear or bobcat hunters to monitor the dogs' movements remotely. Dogs are released to chase a frightened wild animal for miles until the animal is exhausted and typically seeks refuge in a tree. At that point, the hunter approaches the cornered animal and shoots the bear or bobcat down from a limb at close range.

In addition to the fatally wounded bears and bobcats, the hunting dogs are frequently injured, too. In the course of defending themselves, bears have inflicted fatal injuries to dogs. Often times, when a dog becomes injured or is perceived as being too timid or slow, the dog is abandoned and left to starve to death. Due to this type of hunting, animal shelters are often inundated with abandoned or injured hunting dogs that are no longer wanted by their owners.

“Even in states where hunting is still a popular practice, hounding has long been banned,” added Perry. “California is viewed as a leader in animal welfare and a ban on this disgraceful practice was long overdue.”

Dear Dog Lover,

You may not know us, but we know your dog. We are Morris Animal Foundation—the place where science meets hope. Whether big, small, spotted or fluffy, dogs inspire us. Because of this, we believe they deserve the best in veterinary medicine. That’s why we fund science that will make the world a brighter place for dogs and those who care about them—and we’ve been doing so since 1948.

Our loyal supporters believe in us because they want to make a difference. They believe in our ultimate vision of a world in which animals—dogs, cats, horses and wildlife—are healthy and experience high-quality of lives. As we work to provide a brighter tomorrow for animals, we encourage you to learn about Betsy, a beautiful Labrador Retriever, who died too soon.

Betsy’s story is like that of so many. She loved the outdoors. She often joined her owner Jay Clark on adventures, including backpacking trips, and was by his side when he would do yard work. But five months ago Betsy’s life was claimed by canine cancer, a disease that no family is ever prepared for. Click here to read Betsy’s full story.

This disease is one that touches many of us—that is why Betsy’s forever companions, Stacy and Jay Clark and so many others are taking a stand against canine cancer by participating in an upcoming K9 Cancer Walk, an event that celebrates dogs and raises money to give scientists the tools they need to find a cure for canine cancer.

You can help, too! Check out a list of our upcoming K9 Cancer Walks and see how you can make a difference.
