Chopper & Otis Talk Room

    TPE dog toys are the latest buzz words for sustainable dog products, but what are these popular toys, and what makes them so much better than traditional dog toys? 

    Second only to perhaps bones, rope toy is a quintessential toy that dogs can’t resist pulling on and showing off their ferocious sides. However, like dog bones, rope toys can actually be dangerous to your ferocious pup, making them a big no-no for dogs.

    In this post, we’re going to talk about the dangers of traditional rope toys and how you can choose rope toys that are safe for your dog’s playtime fun.

    Dogs love rubber toys. After all, what’s not to love with the bouncy, exciting ingredient commonly found in many dog products? While many dog products are made from rubber, a surprising number of these toys are actually made from synthetic or artificial rubber. These products can be dangerous to your dog and should best be avoided.
    It’s that dreaded time of the year again: allergy season. Itchy or swollen eyes, sneezing, skin rash and excessive paw licking are just a few of the unpleasant symptoms of allergy sufferers. These symptoms can be made even worse when you’re a pet owner.
    Here at Chopper & Otis, we love our dogs and our planet, which is why we are dedicated to creating a healthier lifestyle for our furry friends by providing them with environmentally-friendly dog toys. 

    Many dog parents fondly refer to their dogs as their fur babies. It’s easy for a doting parent or family members to go above and beyond in providing quality toys for their kiddos. This well-intended gesture of love, however, can sometimes have unintended effects. Like children, dogs can benefit from a variety of parenting methods that lead to a happy, more fulfilled pup.

    If you’re wondering how to keep your pup engaged with his toys, sometimes it’s as simple as the cleaning old toys and rotating them. Let’s take a look at some of the easy things you can do to encourage your dog to play with toys!

    Summer is here, and we’re sure there’s no one more excited for this season than your pup!  You and your doggo can both enjoy the sunny skies, warm weather  and gentle breezes this season brings! It also gets lighter earlier, and stays bright later during summer - bringing a seemingly unlimited amount of playtime hours! 

    Sustainability and green initiatives are very important to us, because a healthy planet equals happy puppies and dog parents! But what exactly are eco-friendly dog toys and how do they help both our furry friends and the environment?

    With so many dog toys for pet parents to choose from today, it’s important for pet parents to consider certain factors when buying a dog toy. This includes the age of your dog, size of the dog, whether you’re using the toy for outdoor or indoor play, and play style.

    It’s with this in mind that we here at Chopper & Otis have reviewed the top 50 best eco-friendly toys ever made. This means that all our products are 100% non-toxic and recyclable! Have fun!

    Pet parents become very concerned when their little buddies get sick. Watery eyes, diarrhea, lack of appetite, itching and lethargy can all indicate that something is wrong. If a trip to the vet doesn’t shed light on the cause, it’s time to be a doggy detective.

    You have to break out the notebook and investigate. Allergies and toxins can mess with your pup’s health. We have three areas for you to search for health clues.
