At The Grommet, we get to test out every product on our site. Often, our pets enjoy that perk just as much as we do. Everything from an automatic ball launcher to a whisker relief food bowl goes home for rigorous testing and we document the results. And those results are in, let the team recommendations begin!
Himalayan – Dog Chew Treats
Tester: Bacon, French bulldog and Madaline Spinks, Senior Designer
Review: “This is Bacon’s favorite chew bone by far. It has no preservatives and natural ingredients cleans her teeth as she chews and lasts a super long time. Also, when it gets down to a little nub, you can pop it in the microwave for a cheese puff treat!”
Playday Labs – Pet Tag Silencer
Testers: Riley, Lab Mix and Erica Simons, Merchandising Director
Results: “I have Playday Labs on my dog’s collar. The jingling of her collar always drove me crazy, especially in the middle of the night when the sound would wake me up. It was easy to add to her collar and basically just secures all the tags together so they can’t move around. It’s super durable too. I’ve had the same one on her collar for two years and it’s lasted through runs, swims and trips to the dog park.”
Zen Clipper – Safety Pet Nail Trimmer
Testers: Marty, Mixed Breed and Doug Murphy, Community Experience Director
Review: “I never had any luck clipping Marty’s nails before Zen Clipper. I was a little afraid and he knew it and got scared, too. With Zen Clipper, I’m confident in the process and he barely notices.”
Polydactyl – Organic Catnip Toya
Testers: Bruce and Rosie, Jamie Weliver, Software Engineer.
Review: “Bruce and Rosie actually fight over these they love them so much.”
HandsOn Gloves – Grooved Grooming Gloves
Testers: Sydney, Golden Retriever, and Joanne Domeniconi, Co-Founder and Chief Discovery Officer
Results: “Sydney loves to be groomed. He just laid there so still and the hair just flew off into the wind with these gloves—it was actually quite miraculous.”
Lilly Brush – Be Forever Furless Brush
Testers: Anbesa, Half-Maine Coon and Dan Shults, User Experience and Interface Designer
Results: “I’ve tried a variety of tools for removing fur from carpets and furniture, but this brush has them all beat. It’s easy to use, effective, and easy to clean.”
Whisker+Box – Nylon & Felt Compression Cat Box
Testers: Tilly, aka ‘Kitty Cat’ and Front End Website Developer Corrin Barnes
Results: “I like spending my money on this small creature who bites me. Tilly loves all boxes, but personally, I prefer something I can easily clean and fold up for storage like this. And it looks a lot nicer than shredded cardboard.”
So, there you have it! Our lives in pets.
But the tests don’t end there. Be sure to share your own opinion in a review if you (or your beloved pet) give any of these a go. We’d be glad to hear it!
