Petmate Offers New Interactive Dog Toys That Are Ideal For Any Style of Summer Play


Arlington, TX (June 03, 2013) – Longer days and warmer temperatures can mean only one thing: more time spent outdoors! This includes Fido, who wants to spend as much time possible playing outside. Petmate recently launched a variety of new interactive toys under the JW® Pet and ChuckIt® brands that are durable, tuggable, original, colorful and everything in between.


The fetch pet toy segment was forever changed with the introduction of the iconic ChuckIt! ball launcher thirteen years ago. Since then, the brand has continued to expand and now offers a complete suite of fetch games. Ideal for larger dogs, the Pro 26L Launcher is a high performance launcher with an improved grip that provides added control and comfort. As with other launchers, pet parents can enjoy the no-slobber, hands-free pick-up and launching of balls. Compatible with the Pro 26L Launcher, are several new balls including the: durable Ultra Ball that delivers a high bounce and floats through the air, providing hours of fetching fun; the Erratic Ball that boasts random bounces to enhance play interest and keep dogs on their paws; and the Max Glow Ball, which is ideal for tor those who want to extend playtime into the evening hours.

For hours of running and retrieving, the ChuckIt! ground pursuit line has a toy for every dog. Kick Fetch™ is perfect for high-energy, athletic dogs. Kickable like a traditional soccer ball, the grooved design allows for easy pick up and return. The Fumble Fetch is ideal for dogs that can return a punt. Both are lightweight and can go the distance for dogs of any activity level. Available in various sizes.

For pups that can’t get enough swim time, the Water Skimmer skips across the water and floats high on the water when it comes to rest for easy visibility. The Water Skimmer is easy on a dog’s mouth and gums, but durable enough to withstand hours of fun. The Tumble Bumper is also great for interactive play in the water. An expansion of the ever-popular Tug, Shake or Toss line, it floats high for easy visibility and is unsinkable to help make sure the pup won’t have to come back to shore without his new favorite toy. Available in two sizes, medium and large.

Specially designed to work with the Indoor Launcher, the soft, light and durable Indoor Tumbler is perfect for interactive indoor play when the weather is not cooperating. The fun flying shape features BounceFlex Core Technology, making the toy light and able to bounce off walls and furniture without damage. The Indoor Tumbler is ideal for puppies and small dogs. Its soft, feathery texture makes it easy for little mouths to pick up.


Offering a wide variety of chews and toys that combine nylon with rugged materials such as natural rubber and BPA-free thermoplastic rubber, the JW Pet EverTuff™ Line provides dogs of every size and breed with great ways to release energy, exercise and stay mentally stimulated. The durable EverTuff Nylon Bones help teach proper chewing behavior. Available in a variety of different flavors and sizes to appeal to any pup, the Nylon Bones come in both a single and two-pack version. The EverTuff Nylon Squeaky Barbell is a new toy with a tough exterior that protects a squeaky natural rubber toy resting inside. Made of durable materials like natural rubber and nylon, the toy also makes fun sounds that help encourage hours of interactive play. The EverTuff Nylon Treat Pods feature treat pods that rest on a durable nylon bone. Treats can be inserted into each pod for a mentally stimulating and challenging reward, while the nylon bone will help satisfy the dogs chewing instinct in a healthy way. Available in two sizes, small and large. The EverTuff Nylon Wobbling Ball rolls, bounces, spins and slides for interactive and boredom-busting play. Available in two sizes, medium and large.

The new Treat Tower is a puzzle toy that wobbles and spins while releasing yummy treats. The treats are easy to insert and the difficulty level can be adjusted to keep the dog mentally stimulated and challenged. Available in two sizes, small and large.

An addition to the popular Hol-ee Roller line, the Hol-ee Treat N Squeak is a one-of-a-kind combination squeaky treat toy that comes in the shape of a ball. Made of durable natural rubber, half of the “ball” is open where treats can be inserted for stimulating play, while the other half squeaks for added playtime fun. Available in assorted colors.
