Our products provide for an excellent interactive period with your dog.* While they are very durable, they are not chew toys and should not be left with your dog.
Our products float very well, they are soft on the dog's mouth, they are great to play fetch with a puppy that is teething, and the dog's really seem to enjoy them.

The kind folks at armadillofoam.com asked us if we'd like to try out a couple of their toys.* We received two armadillo foam products on Friday and have been having fun testing them out on Ender (and some other pups on our path).* I was particularly interested because none of the toys I had seemed to get his retrieving genes going in a consistent way.* He lost interest in his tennis balls and I think they were harder for him to carry.
We used the dynamite stick looking one in Lake Michigan and Ender must have retrieved that thing 20-30 times before we decided to call it a day.* The toy floated great and was just the right size/texture for Ender to get a easy handle on it.* (It has raised bumps on it)* I think it's called the "barber shop pole" bumper on their website.
THEN... we tested the mallard duck (made out of the same substance) with Ender's pal Norman, a 6 month old black lab...* They tugged and tugged and retrieved the thing for a good 15 minutes.* Surely, two razor sharp puppy teeth would do some damage pulling eachother around the woods (well it was mostly Norman pulling Ender lol) but other than some color change... the foam gave in just enough that those little teeth didn't puncture the toy but still had grip.
Anyways... just wanted y'all to know an actual lab (or two) loved these toys.* I'll keep you updated as to how these two toys hold up in the coming weeks.* They are NOT chew toys and I make sure Ender only gets them when we are doing actual retreives.* This is also the first toy he has ever carried all the way home, prancing all the way.
Great review! I WANT ONE TOO!!! Can you ask the lovely people at armadillofoam.com if they sell to somebody in New Zealand?
Oh well I will send them an e-mail nothing like that here even the Kong's are hard to get.
