Dublin Dog Eco Friendly Eco Lucks Dog Collars and Roxxter Eco-Minded Vanilla Scented Dog Toy Review and Giveaway $42 Value




My Rescue Dogs are very excited once again to be reviewing an amazing pet loving and understanding company. 

First of all I want to start be sharing a little bit about this Dog Friendly Company that I was so "Lucky" to find:

"When you get right down to it, we're just a bunch of folks who really like dogs. And it's easy to see why: dogs have more fun, worry less, are incredibly loyal and give you their heart with every wag of their tail. It's impossible not to like someone like that, whether they walk on two legs or four."

The Dublin Dog Philosophy
"When it comes to running our business, we want to make you and your pet feel like the luckiest pair on the planet. We do that two ways. First, by offering unique and dependable products that you'll both enjoy. Second, by stealing a page from Lassie's book and going the extra mile, in the snow, uphill both ways to make sure you're not just satisfied, but thrilled. That's the Dublin Dog Philosophy."

Okay as a dog LOVER and owner of two Rescued dogs - Lucky a yellow lab and Radar a Corgi....if the Dublin Dog Philosophy doesn't have you a little excited and wanting to know more, this review is not for your eyes.

But....

If it does, keep reading and enter for your chance to win some Dublin Dog Products for your Furry Companion!

Dublin Dog was amazing and sent me out two wonderful items to review and giveaway....but even better yet, they totally understood and sent me two of everything so my dogs were treated equal and thank heavens they did...the story will follow.

 I am thrilled I was able to get a picture taken of what was inside the box.  It is like Lucky and Radar have a feeling when a package arrives in the mail...and they know it is for them. 
 Look at these amazing items.
Aren't these Fearless Blue Eco Lucks Collars beautiful.  As a Cervical Cancer Survivor I love the message on the collars and the color as teal is the color for Cervical Cancer. (Dublin Dog carries a large line of well made collars)

I was impressed at how durable and practical these tough collars are.  They are made from 100% post-consumer plastic bottles, keeping the equivalent of 1.5 bottles out of our landfills with every collar sold!  Amazing how one dog collar can make such a difference...not only a difference in our landfills but....Proceeds from the sale of this collar will go to the Chase Away K9 Cancer Campaign from the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine Foundation.



I have never seen a buckle on a dog collar this strong before.  When it clicks closed, there is no doubt it is going to be that way, until you, yourself unbuckle it.  They feature extremely strong hardware with a special coating on the D-ring that is completely waterproof.  The D-ring is very large and easy to attach a leash too (love it!) Each unique design is printed using water-based ink containing no chemical by products. With normal use, the collar should retain its bright and beautiful design for several years!

I can't wait to get years of use out of these collars.  It seams like we typically go through at least a collar a year at the longest.  They even come with a....
"Lifetime Guarantee.
All our products come with a lifetime guarantee against defective craftsmanship. Plus, our collars are tested to hold over seven times your dog's weight. Bottom line: unless your best friend is from Krypton, these things aren't breaking."

I have to laugh.  I decided to put on Lucky's collar first.  My dogs are so like little children....Radar sat watching and as soon as Lucky's collar was on he was up nudging my hand wanting to know where his was.  Thank you Dublin Dog!

The Dublin Dog Roxxter Toy was a hit!  It has a sweet vanilla scent....It Floats...It has a Treat Chamber...It Wibbles....It Wabbles...It is Wacky Fun!  It even will Self Right!  Fill it with Goodies to keep your Dog Entertained!  Made in the USA and Eco Minded.




"Satisfaction Guarantee:Dublin Dog Co. will provide a one-time replacement of the Roxxter if you're not satisfied with it's performance. Proof of purchase is required along with the returned product so we can inspect the toy to better understand the weakness. We certainly understand that every dog has it's varied level of tenacity. Some can eat through a small sapling faster than a woodchuck, while others like to carry a toy around like a new prized possession. "

Okay I have to confess...Lucky must be a related to a woodchuck!  He is a very aggressive chewer and unfortunately the necks of the Roxxter's didn't even last a week.  The base is still entacked and they enjoy chasing what is left around the house.  Radar wasn't even putting a dent in the Roxxter, before Lucky decided to has his way with both of them. 

Now on to the giveaway details.....
