Are USA-K9 dog toys made in
- Yes! All of our products are 100% manufactured in the USA, even our rope. - Natural rubber is a natural ingredient that comes from rubber trees. Rubber trees grow in equatorial climates where there is high heat and humidity and lots of rain. Rubber trees do not grow in the USA. So, we import raw natural rubber and work with compounding facilities in the USA to create our specific rubber compound for dog toys. This compound is engineered for high durability and tear strength.
Are Spotnik dog toys safe?
- Yes! All SodaPup dog toys, including in the Spotnik collection, are made from FDA compliant materials that are safe for dogs (and people) to have in their mouths. - Product design is another important consideration when creating a dog toy. While no dog toy is indestructible, SodaPup strives to create toy designs that are less susceptible to destruction. You should always supervise your dog when playing with toys and remove damaged toys immediately.
What types of toys are in the Spotnik Collection?
The Spotnik Collection includes toys made from natural rubber which is a soft, pliable material. It also includes toys made from nylon which is a hard plastic material.
