Nylabone® Announces Refillable Triple Action Treat Hold’ems™
Natural Treat Hold’ems™ Treat Refills drive traffic and deliver repeat purchases
November 4, 2010NEPTUNE CITY, NJ – — Nylabone®, the Leader in Responsible Animal Care for Over 50 Years®, announces a new way to fight canine boredom: Triple Action Treat Hold’emsTM and Natural Treat Refills.
“Triple Action Treat Hold’ems by Nylabone® offer multiple ways to keep your dog healthy and occupied,” says Mark E. Johnson, Executive Vice President of Nylabone® Products and parent company T.F.H. Publications, Inc., based in Neptune City, N.J. “These durable, vet-recommended treat holders keep pet pals busy and out of trouble.”
Johnson explained that the Treat Hold’emsTM are triple action because the center of the sturdy rubber holder can be filled with treats like the Nylabone® Natural Treat Refills included with each holder, or can be filled with your pooch’s other favorite wholesome treat. In addition, side pockets can be filled with kibble and the little treat pockets can be packed with peanut butter. The result is a three-way, irresistible treat/toy combo that can be “re-loaded” with treats for hours and hours of exercise and chewing enjoyment.
Nylabone® Triple Action Treat Hold’emsTM are available in two sizes suitable for small/medium dogs and large dogs, and each package includes three Treats Refills. (MSRP $11.99 and $15.99.) Additional Natural Treat Refills can be purchased separately.
The Treat Hold’emsTM Natural Treat Refills are made in the USA and have no sugar, salt, artificial preservatives or artificial colors. They are made with real chicken and have a great flavor that dogs really love. Additionally, Natural Treat Refills drive traffic and deliver repeat purchases. Treat Hold’ems TM Natural Treat Refills come in 6-count and 12-count packages. (MSRP $6.99 and $9.99.)
