Westbrook, Maine (February 12, 2013) – Planet Dog is excited to showcase the updated Cosmos line, a new universe of Orbee-Tuff toys, at the Global Pet Expo (Booth #3844) taking place in Orlando, FL from February 20th until February 22nd. The Cosmos collection features three dog balls of different shapes, sizes and colors: Sol.; Luna.; and Ringo. They may be inspired from out of this world, but they are made in the USA and are doggie-durable, buoyant, bouncy, minty, recyclable, non-toxic and 100% guaranteed.

Designed for bigger dogs and representing the sun, the 5” translucent orange Sol. is the largest ball in the Cosmos collection. Planet Dog offers the moon to medium and smaller sized dogs with the 4” glow-in-the dark Luna. Any dog will be star struck by the unpredictable bounces of the 3” emerald green Ringo. with its Saturn-style ring.

Because of their shapes and sizes, Planet Dog rates the Sol. and the Luna. toys 4 out of 5 chompers on their Chew-o-Meter Scale meaning they are suitable for “fairly aggressive” chewers. The Ringo. will suit even the most aggressive chewers, with a 5 out of 5 Durability Rating. Their Treat Spots™ are perfect for stuffing Planet Dog’s eats, treats made in the USA from healthy, all-natural ingredients.

They are socially responsible too since Planet Dog donates 2% of every purchase to the Planet Dog Foundation (PDF) to support canine service programs across the country. “The Planet Dog Foundation (PDF) is approaching the one million dollar mark for grants and product donations,” says Kristen Smith, PDF’s Executive Director. “Our customers and their canine companions are helping us make a difference in the lives of people with special needs.” adds Smith.

Retailers can place an order at the show, online at or at 800-381-1516 (toll-free). Consumers can purchase Cosmos online at and at pet stores nationwide.
