Portland, ME (August 13, 2013) – This holiday season, Planet Dog will offer holiday-themed soft and squeaky toys and durable Orbee-Tuff® toys for dogs of all sizes and ages as well as a Classic Canine Stocking. Shoppers with naughty canine companions on their shopping lists will love the new Orbee-Tuff® Lump o’ Coal (a new Orbee-Tuff doggie-durable ball for the dog who promises to be better next year). The socially responsible pet industry leader is proud to offer dog lovers high-quality, unique and meaningful gifts this holiday season.

Sit. Speak. Act.®

Planet Dog donates 2% of every purchase to the Planet Dog Foundation (PDF) to support canine service programs nationwide. Since January 2006, PDF has given away more than $1 million in cash grants and in-kind product donations to help more dogs help more people in need. In addition, PDF receives 100% of the profits from Planet Dog’s best-selling Orbee-Tuff® Glow for Good Ball.

Orbee-Tuff® Coal is the latest tail-wagging addition to Planet Dog’s popular collection of Orbee-Tuff products. Our Lump o’ Coal is the world's first doggie-durable, buoyant, bouncy, and minty lump of coal with no carbon emissions! Coal is a 2 ½” textured ball that rates 5 out of 5 chompers on Planet Dog's Chew-O-Meter scale. Like all Orbee-Tuff® products, it is made in the USA and is non-toxic, recyclable, durable, bouncy, buoyant and mint-scented.

Planet Dog's Classic Canine Stocking features traditional holiday tartan colors. This soft fleece stuffable stocking is 100% lined and includes a soft white Berber fleece cuff making it easy to personalize. Planet Dog suggests stuffing it with Planet Dog EATS, 100% natural dog treats that aid in tartar control and offer super nutrients in every bite for optimal health and wellness. The Chicken & Pumpkin Pot Pie and PB and J (with real Maine blueberries) flavors feature powerful antioxidants and other healthy ingredients to naturally support digestion and help lower the risk of diseases.

Made in the USA without wheat, corn and soy ingredients, they are designed to fit the Treat-Spot® in all of the Orbee-Tuff toys and provide hours of interactive play and wholesome goodness. Dogs love the challenge of getting them out of the Orbee-Tuff® Mazee which features a maze for treats inside of an Orbee-Tuff ball. Although Mazee is made from Planet Dog’s award-winning Orbee-Tuff®, it is intended for puzzle play, not chewing. Its transparent shell makes it fun for dogs and people to watch the treats navigate their way through the maze. It is available in one size and two colors – green and raspberry.

The hugely popular and seasonal favorite Orbee-Tuff® Bulb (6" tall) is back and will be offered in classic red and green holiday colors as well as the whimsical Lil' Bulb in a smaller size (4.25" tall) for small chew-frenzied, drool-happy dogs.

The Orbee-Tuff® Snowball is a 2 ½” winter-white ball that won’t melt like your run-of-the-mill snowball or contain yellow snow. It rates 5 out of 5 chompers on Planet Dog's Chew-O-Meter scale. And, as the seasons turn, it can be frozen to bring back the true feeling of winter and provide a refreshing summer treat.

The Orbee-Tuff® Mint (4" diameter) features the retro red and white swirls of the real candy treat. This "sweet" toy is infused with natural mint oil.

Dogs will also be barking for Planet Dog's Slobber-Wick® Wishbone. Dog caretakers will love how easy-to clean it is thanks to a material that will wick away even the messiest holiday drool. It features red and green holiday colors and "I wish" is embroidered on the top right "bone". It is also gusseted for extra durability and "chompability".

All of Planet Dog's products are covered by the company's 100% satisfaction guarantee. Consumers can buy them online at, by calling Planet Dog toll-free at 800-381-1516 or at retailers nationwide.
