HGG 2011 Gift-A-Day: AirDog toys by Kong

UP IN THE AIR

Kong’s Airdog line is for those dogs with an athletic bent. OK, they all can jump and run, but these toys will give them a good workout. The line is made from tennis ball material that doesn’t irritate a dog’s gums and teeth. For the dog who can’t help but likes to get wet, toss the Fetch Stick with rope that floats high on the water for Fido to fetch easily. The Squeaker Stick speaks for itself and is also made with the same materials, as are all the items in Kong’s AirDog line. The items in medium size are priced at $8.99–$9.99.

Available at PetSmart, PETCO and Target retailers.
