New Toy Stimulates All 5 of Your Dog’s Senses

09 Jun

Dogzilla is the first dog toy that engages all five senses, guaranteed to help keep your dog entertained for hours. Dogzilla appeals to your dog’s sense of taste with an innovative material that includes protein flavors. Unlike humans, dogs have taste buds for protein, enabling them to smell and taste it. Dogzilla is infused with protein to make it deliciously crave-able. Dogzilla appeals to your dog’s sense of smell by adding vanilla into the rubber to bring the scent of human food to the dog’s toy. You can also fill the center with tasty treats whose aroma will keep you dog engaged. The design is specially created to visually appeal to the canine eye. Studies show that while dogs can see only certain shades of red and green, they see blue in all of the same shades as humans. In addition, evolutionary processes shaped the canine vision to be an acute detector of movement. The shape of Dogzilla enables the toy to be easily set in motion, which catches a dog’s eye.

Your dog’s sense of touch is stimulated by a tough rubber material that that can be chewed, and comes in wobbly shapes that keep a dog interacting with the toy with his paws, mouth and nose for hours. In addition, specially-placed ridges aid in gripping the toy in paws and mouth, which assists play and helps the dog to work on getting peanut butter, spray cheese or treats out of the center.

Finally, Dogzilla is made of rubber and not hard plastic, which protects a dog’s sensitive hearing. Dogzilla has a calming effect by not adding more noise to the dog’s environment during high-stress times such as separation anxiety, allowing your dog to play quietly and happily. For more stimulation, you can add kibble or small treats inside that will rattle and activate a dog’s hunting instinct. So you can have a quiet toy or a rattling toy, depending on whether you want to soothe or stimulate your dog.

By addressing all the senses, the manufacturer — in collaboration with an evolutionary biologist, an animal behaviorist and a color specialist — has created a toy with the ideal color, shape, size and scent for dogs to enjoy.

Sizes:

Although it is designed to withstand focused chewing, you should never leave your dog alone with any toy until you determine that he will not break off small pieces and swallow them.

    Much the same as a Kong though as I understand it the material used to make the toy is impregnated with “tasty” protein. Hmmm suggest a fresh raw bone from the butchers would be far more healthy

    I have a Great Dane Puppy, is 8 months old and It took about 5 minutes for him to take little pieces apart from this toy. Actually I haven’t been able to find a toy that he doesn’t destroty that soon.

    I bought a dogzilla rope toy from walmart and within 15-20 minutes my 15lb snoodle ate the rope in half. She has never done this with a rope toy before. What a waste of ten dollars.

    We have a year and a half old lab… she tore the Dogzilla to pieces within an hour… for the money, I’d highly recommend the Kong. She hasn’t been able to destroy that in about a year. Highly disappointed!

      I agree. The black Kong is super.

    I have a five year old golden doodle and I have only found two toys that she hasn’t torn apart in about ten minutes. I feel so sad for my mini dachshund because she can never have a toy because her “BIG sister” will demolish it.

    This Dogzilla looks like a great toy. My dog is big andestroys all toys I get him. Can’t wait to try this one on him. I don’t think he will destroy this one. Thanks

    Thanks for pointing out differences in dog toys. Dogs may seem to get stimulated by toys that engage most if not all of their senses. Good post.

    This was on the clearance rack at Petco for $2.00. I like the smell but my 2 year old American Bulldog/Pit mix had it ripped during the first day. Therefore, it is going in the trash. I don’t feel like looking a blue speckled dog turds.
