Petmate Dog Products Review

**All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I was not compensated for this post.  I was given products for review purposes.**

Our story. It was 50 years ago that Petmate created the first dog kennel at our home office in Arlington, Texas. It’s our passion for pets that drove us then and continues today.

What started with kennels has grown to encompass a full line of products and solutions for the pet industry and, more importantly, pet families. Many of our products are made in that same factory that produced the world’s very first kennel.

Petmate, an international company, continues to produce many of our products in the USA at our manufacturing facilities in Arlington, Texas. We source much of the plastic we use in our manufacturing from our Spectrum Plastics Facility, also based in Arlington. It is at this award-winning manufacturing operation that we produce nearly 80 million pounds of resin each year. We purchase post-industrial, pre-consumer, recyclable materials to reduce our carbon footprint. We also utilize eco-friendly manufacturing techniques to ensure that our pets and their families have a beautiful world to play in.

We are proud that our manufacturing facility has been given the Edison Green Award, for being "a leader in globally recognizing, honoring and fostering innovation and innovators to create a positive impact in the world." At Petmate, we are committed to enhancing the lives of pets and their owners every day.

This past June we gained a new family member.  His name is Kevin and he is a hand full!!  We got him from a shelter so we are not 100% sure how old he is.  We think he's about 11 months.  We also think he is a Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix.

Kevin is very different from The Sam.  He has no food hangups (he eats everything!!)  He also plays with a lot more toy varieties then Sam did.  Sammy was very gentle with her toys, where Kevin likes to break them apart.  We have found a couple toys that with stand his rough play, but not many.  I was very excited to give Petmates JW Megalast Glow toys a try.  

These toys are made of their durable Megalastomer material which makes them perfect for rough and tumble play.  These toys float, bounce, and hold up to all manner of play.  They glow in the dark (which is pretty cool,) and they are infused with Vanilla!!  Kevin loves his, and plays with it all the time.  So far there are no dings or dents, so I think this one is going to be a keeper!!

Petmate also carries leashes.  This is a problem area for us.  We have had Kevin for 4 months now, and have gone through just as many leashes.  He runs so fast and rough, that he snaps them easily.  So far I have found the Petmate Walkabout Glow In The Dark Retractable Leash to be staying strong against hurricane Kevin!!

I like that the leash is strong, but that it also glows in the dark!!  I can see Kevin at night when he is running around like a mad man!!

Petmate has a lot of other products for your favorite friends.  Products for dogs, cats and birds.

Don't forget your favorite pet this holiday season.  Check out Petmate to get them the items on their wish list!!
