We've all been there. We find the cutest little dog toy. It's fluffy and colorful and looks at you with big cartoon eyes that just seem to say "don't worry, your dog could never destroy someone as adorable as me!" Then you bring it home, and sure enough, the toy does, in fact, get destroyed. But what if we were to tell you that we knew of a plush toy that can withstand your pup's jaws...and what if we told you it was also...machine washable??? Too good to be true? We thought so at first, too. Meet Fluff & Tuff, one of our favorite plush brands that opened a very new, very cuddly door of playtime opportunities for our dogs! First and foremost, Fluff & Tuff values safety above all else. One of the biggest issues with many plush toys is that you dont know what theyre made of or where they come from. Dogs have been known to get sick from ingesting the materials of cheap toys, or choke on the squeakers inside them. There have also been issues with foreign objects like plastic or metal accidentally getting stuffed inside, leading to illness and even fatality. Thats because the safety standards for dog toys are typically much lower than human-grade products. Needless to say, we find that unacceptable, you probably find that unacceptable, and Fluff & Tuff definitely finds that unacceptable. All the materials used are American-made and non-toxic, right down to the polyester filling and squeaker inside. To avoid choking hazards, every detail (eyes, mouths, etc.) are embroidered on, rather than using plastic that could fall off. The squeaker has also gotten a safety upgrade by being sewn in a little pouch, so you can rest easy knowing that your pup wont choke. Theyre also double scanned individually for any foreign objects, and fit the same tough standards that human toys do. It's those little ways of going the extra mile that make Fluff & Tuff such an amazing brand. It almost feels as if you were the one who designed the toy, because if we're being honest with ourselves, we can all be a little neurotic when it comes to making sure our furry friends are kept safe! That's because this family-owned company is headed by pet parents, just like you, and their quality testers are their own canine companions since nobody knows what dogs like better than dogs! But what exactly makes Fluff & Tuff so “tuff”? The secret is in the extra layer of Tuffweb mesh lining and double-stitched seams. In short; everything is super reinforced and ready to withstand a whole bunch of tugging, tossing, and snuggling. Our very own Beamer and Sassy actually have several Fluff & Tuff toys of their own, and were proud to report firsthand that they definitely live up to their expectations! That being said, its important to remember that a plush toy is still a plush toy and therefore not indestructible (nothing is when is comes to a dog with a goal!). A common misconception weve run into is that people mistake them for chew toys since theyre marketed as a durable brand. Theyre definitely durable! But not for extended chewing. Thats why its always important to know what types of toys your dog prefers, and to always supervise them during play. If you still arent sold on why we love Fluff & Tuff as much as we do, you should come by Two Bostons and feel one for yourself. “Fluff” isnt half their name for nothing! Theres a reason dogs love them so much, and weve even had reports from pet parents who find typically "un-cuddly" dogs asleep with their fuzzy friends. Theyre so soft, youll have trouble believing theyre actually dog toys, and with the huge selection of animals to choose from, you might even end up wanting one for yourself. Wed be lying if we said we didnt!
