APPA Promotes Member Products for Summer Fun

According to the American Pet Products Association’s (APPA) 2019-2020 National Pet Owners Survey, the benefits of pet ownership are many. Pets promote exercise, provide companionship and are good for the health of the pet owner. As temperatures warm up across the nation, summer is just around the corner and that means more time will be spent outdoors with pets.

The following products are manufactured by APPA members and ideal for enjoying time outdoors.

Get dogs moving during the lazy days of summer or when pet owners are at work (from home or from the office). The Tether Tug Toy allows dogs to pull, tug, spin, or fetch all day long. It’s perfect to keep a dog’s physical and mental activity stimulated even when pet owners aren’t home. It’s available in three sizes so all dogs can participate in the fun.
