To amuse, explore, support, innovate, create,
educate, celebrate and “philanthropate”. . .
all in the name of the dog

A Values-Led Business

Planet Dog is an industry leader in “romping the romp.” Since 2006, our corporate philanthropic arm, the Planet Dog Foundation (PDF), has contributed more than $1,000,000 in cash and in-kind donations to canine service programs across the country. Unlike many philanthropic efforts in our industry, we will always give back regardless of our financial strength. And, our giving comes primarily from our sales, not donations from others. In other words, we don’t just facilitate giving, we actually give back using our company‘s revenue. Why do we do this? We’re in business for a cause, not just because.

A percentage of every sale of Planet Dog products is donated to PDF, which provides cash grants to programs throughout the country that train, place and support dogs helping people in need. Service dogs, therapy dogs, police, fire & military dogs, K-9 search & rescue dogs - we celebrate ALL “working” dogs that are enhancing and saving human lives. Thanks to our dog-loving customers, PDF has supported exemplary canine service programs nationwide. Visit www.planetdogfoundation.org to see our grantees whose programs help dogs to help children and adults in need.

“The World’s Best Dog Ball”

The majority of our offering consists of award-winning toys for dogs of all ages – from pups to “old souls.” The toys are complemented by all-natural dog treats, collars and leashes, on the go products, gifts for dogs and dog lovers, and more.

Our impressive growth has been due to the Orbee® Ball. It is made of Planet Dog's eco-friendly, 100% recyclable Orbee-Tuff® compound that was engineered specifically to create the best dog toys on the planet. We worked with our chemists for almost two years to make Orbee-Tuff® into the most durable, pliable, buoyant, bouncy compound on the market. We threw in some peppermint scent to ensure dogs love the smell as much as the feel. It consists of all FDA approved non-toxic ingredients. Toys made of Orbee-Tuff®, as well as all the products we make, come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Best of all, all Orbee-Tuff® toys are made in the U.S.A.
