JW Pet Company continues to bring innovation and fun to pets and their owners with the launch of the Crackle Heads toy line. These truly unique toys feature the crackle sound and crunchy feel of water bottles that dogs love, but they are a safer alternative. The patent pending Bottle Balls are safely enclosed in engaging non-toxic rubber, plush & canvas toys. The JW Bottle Balls do not have caps or screw tops which can pose dangers to a chewing pet. The Crackle Heads will be available later this spring.
More than seven million pets enter animal shelters each year, according the to ASPCA. Most are given up because of behavioral problems their owners can’t manage or change. SENTRY® calming products could help resolve some issues. The line, which includes Calming Sprays, Calming Diffusers and more, contain patented Good Behavior™ Pheromone Technology. Pheromones are natural substances that animals produce to communicate with each other. Each SENTRY® calming product contains pheromones specfically chosen for their scientifically-proven effectiveness. They help pets overcome anxiety. They also reduce or stop behaviors such as inappropriate marking, scratching, digging, begging, whining, jumping and chewing.
