Nylabone® FUN ‘N’ FIT Treat Toys and Treat Refills Now Available Through FDM Channel
Keep Dogs Busy While Making Treats Last Longer
January 16, 2012NEPTUNE CITY, NJ – — Seven new items from Nylabone®, the makers of safe, healthy chews since 1955, will soon be available in Walmart stores and other fine FDM retailers. The new interactive toys are designed to keep dogs busy and entertained while making treats last longer.
“Great for interactive toss and retrieval play, our FUN ‘N’ FIT line can be used with any Nylabone® edible treats, or your dog’s favorite treat or kibble to keep dogs happy and entertained while making the treats last a long, long time,” says Mike Connelly, Vice President of Marketing for Nylabone® Products based in Neptune City, N.J. “They are all made in the USA of high-grade rubber and the toys are vanilla-scented to really pique your pet’s interest.”
Designed for dogs of all sizes, the line include two Treat-Holder Balls (small and medium), a treat-holder cone, small and large Treat-Holder Wobblers, the large Hollow Stick, and treat refills.
Like all Nylabone products, in addition to being fun, they promote good canine dental health as ridges and nubs help clean teeth and massage gums. In classic shapes dogs love, the toys are great for interactive toss and retrieval play.
The 5-piece Treat Refills, which slip inside the toys, are all natural and made in the USA with real chicken. They contain no added sugar, salt, artificial preservatives or artificial colors and are perfect refills for Nylabone treat toys or as an anytime treat.
Nylabone’s FUN ‘N’ FIT line is now available to the FDM channel and will be seen on shelves of Walmart stores and other fine retailers this spring. Suggested retail prices range from $0.00 to $0.00.
