Portland, ME (September 8, 2011) - Planet Dog's holiday collection offers canine companions on shopping lists holiday-themed soft and squeaky toys and durable Orbee-Tuff® toys for dogs of all sizes and ages as well as a new, Classic Canine Stocking. The socially responsible pet industry leader is proud to offer shoppers high-quality, unique and meaningful gifts this holiday season.

Sit. Speak. Act.

Planet Dog is proud to donate 2% of every purchase to the Planet Dog Foundation (PDF) to support canine service programs nationwide. Since January 2006, PDF has given away more than $750,000 in cash grants and in-kind product donations to help more dogs help more people in need. In addition, PDF receives 100% of the profits from its best-selling Orbee-Tuff® Glow for Good Ball.

For the soft and squeaky toy lover, Planet Dog is introducing the perfect companion to its popular Gingerbread Buddy - the Squeaky Snowman Buddy. Soft and plush and standing 9” tall, these toys are just right for medium to large dogs who love to have a buddy around at all times. They are made with super-soft fleece and a double-bellow squeaker for a cozy snuggle under the tree or a very satisfying, squeaky chew.

Dogs will also be barking for Planet Dog's new Slobber-Wick® Wishbone this holiday season. Dog caretakers will love how easy-to clean it is thanks to a material that will wick away even the messiest holiday drool. It features red and green colors and "I wish" is embroidered on the top right "bone". It is also gusseted for extra durability and "chompability".

Planet Dog's new Classic Canine Stocking features traditional holiday tartan colors. This soft fleece stuffable stocking is 100% lined and includes a soft white Berber fleece cuff making it easy to personalize.

Planet Dog EATS are 100% natural dog treats that aid in tartar control and offer super nutrients in every bite for optimal health and wellness. Chicken & Pumpkin Pot Pie and PB and J (with real Maine blueberries) are new flavors that feature powerful antioxidants and other healthy ingredients to naturally support digestion and can help lower the risk of diseases.

The treat line is a perfect companion for Planet Dog's award-winning Orbee-Tuff toys. Made in the USA without wheat, corn and soy ingredients, they are designed to fit the Treat-Spot® in all of the Orbee-Tuff toys and provide hours of interactive play and wholesome goodness.

The hugely popular and seasonal favorite Orbee-Tuff Bulb (6" tall) is back and will be offered in classic red and green holiday colors as well as the whimsical Lil' Bulb in a smaller size (4.25" tall) for the small chew-frenzied, drool-happy dogs. Each features the Treat Spot for stuffing Planet Dog EATS or other healthy treats, spreads and Christmas “cookies” that may show up in a dog’s stocking.

The Orbee-Tuff Snowball is a 2 ½” winter-white ball that won’t melt like your run-of-the-mill snowball or contain yellow snow. It rates 5 out of 5 chompers on Planet Dog's Chew-O-Meter scale. And, as the seasons turn, it can be frozen to bring back the true feeling of winter and provide a refreshing summer treat.

Not only does Orbee-Tuff Mint (4" diameter) feature the retro red and white swirls of the real candy treat, this "sweet" toy is infused with natural mint oil. Like all Orbee-Tuff products, it is made in the U.S.A. and is non-toxic, recyclable, durable, bouncy and buoyant.
