Melissa Crumb is no stranger to us here at Dublin...and now she is our newest Ambassador!   Melissa and her pups Freya and Loki have been putting our stuff to the test for quite a while.  We sent them a Gripple to test out and here's what happened!
About a month ago we received our Gripple and since then not a single day has gone by that my dogs, Loki and Freya, haven’t asked to play with it!  My dogs and I are incredibly active.  In a single day we go on two walks--one in the  morning and one in the evening, both usually somewhere between 30min to an hour long.  We play in our backyard, we train, and several times a week we go to our neighborhood lake park to play.  Once a week we do adventure day with my best friend and her dog... We are very active and the Gripple has been a perfect addition to our toy box.

At the lake park we toss it far away and Freya swims out for it, in the backyard we throw it around and it bounces crazily, which Loki finds irresistible, and in the evening we put treats inside it and the girls play with it like a puzzle toy to get the treats out.  It is a fantastic toy that my dogs continually pick over other toys. I don’t have kids (yet), so often my floors are strewn with all kinds of toys, but guess which toy my girls bring me when they want to entice me to come and play....? The Gripple.


They love the way that it bounces when I throw it, they love the rope because they can grab it when it's floating in the lake, they like the texture of the toy and love that it smells good (like vanilla), and the smell helps them find it when it bounces into a bush. The Gripple is durable but its material also has some give to it so my girls can bite down on it
without breaking it. I love this toy because my girls find it so rewarding and it’s easy to find when it gets lost in the grass.


It floats, it bounces, it’s durable, and we can use it as a puzzle toy. I couldn’t ask for more. It’s a toy that has lasted over a month which is a huge accomplishment for a toy in my house. I love playing with my dogs and I love when they get excited about a new toy.  The Gripple has been a spectacular play toy for us. I only hope that your dogs will enjoy it as much as my Loki and Freya have!!



As you may have heard, we’re a little obsessed with scent and odor over here, obsessed with eliminating it as much as possible that is. In fact, we’ve grown our brand from our meager beginnings in a spare bedroom back in early 2006 by creating the “Original All Style, No Stink” dog collar. Easy to clean, non-porous, and water tight materials created a barrier to help prevent the growth of odor causing bacteria on your dog’s collar. The ASNS collar as we refer to it was the catalyst behind our growth and the rest is history as they say.

Well we’re up to it again, except this time it’s about the scent of your sofa…. Your slumber series dog sofa. These beds are unique for several reasons. 1) They have a luxurious micro-fiber cover that’s easy to clean. 2) We use intelli-Loft™ recycled polyfill that is sewn into clump-free baffles to eliminate shifting. 3) We are using Scent-Lok® activated carbon alloy inside our polyfill. Our beds have incorporated cutting edge technology originally created in the scent elimination world  for hospitals, clinics, and even hunting sports. While we won’t bore you with a series of 6-syllable words, we will tell you what it means for you and our new Slumber series dog bed.  While you can clean your cover in the washing machine, how do you remove the odor from your large, polyfilled insert? Easy… you simply throw it in the dyer to reactivate the carbon alloy and the odor is eliminated. You can continue to do this every several months as you begin to detect odor from your insert. So let your dog be a dog, and get dirty, muddy, nasty, and stinky, we’ll continue to come up with ways to ensure your house doesn’t do likewise.

It’s that time of year again when the air gets a little more crisp, the leaves on the trees burst into brilliant hues of yellow, orange, and glorious reds and we take time to hit the trail. There’s something almost therapeutic about getting outdoors with your dog and enjoying what nature has to offer. We use the mantra “disconnect to reconnect”, meaning put down the iphone, unplug from your email and enjoy the exercise and inspiration that a day outside with your pet can provide…..for both of you.

In this line of thinking, you’ll note that Dublin Dog has been expanding our line of products built for the outdoors, and helping to foster great adventures on the go. From our new Nomadic series of pads & collapsible bowls, to our growing line of KOA collars (some of which take inspiration from trout-filled Carolina streams), we will continue to grow our offerings that help facilitate outdoor play.  So steal a page from us here at Dublin Dog and disconnect & reconnect to nature, to your dog, and to yourself. You’ll be glad you did.

As part of growing our blog community, Dublin Dog Co will start to test and review products submitted from our fan base. Our goal is share great products, be those for humans or for our dogs that we may all benefit from. First on the list is one that I have personally been trying over the last 3-4 months, the Kuranda Dog Bed. As many of you know, I'm the proud owner of a 65lb female German Shepherd Dog, "Kona" as well as an 85lb lab mix named "Jake" (the profile for our logo). Both dogs have started to crest the proverbial "hill" into old age with Kona being 9 and Jake being 10. As with many GSD's, Kona experiences some hip and joint issues, yet she is still as spry and puppy-like when it comes to chasing sticks and running after bunnies. However her recovery can take longer after extended days of play and romping.

Jake on the other hand has what I like to refer to as a sprinkle problem. That's right, he's a leaker. It appears in his older age he has become incontinent. While we have him on an aggressive regimen of Proin 3x a day, the positive effects are starting to wane. The result is the frustrating and disconcerting reality that he leaks all over his bed, our oriental rugs, the hardwoods, and everywhere else he decides to rest. While we certainly don't blame him for his malady, there is no getting around the constant struggle to keep the house clean, Jake clean, and mopping up everywhere he goes. While "male wraps" have been employed, we hate to have that on him all the time. And his bed, oh dear heavens. It was becoming a sponge for odor and urine, as even his wrap would eventually bleed through.

Welome the Kuranda Bed. These beds offer both orthopedic comfort for the dog by keeping them elevated off the ground through a supportive woven fabric that is supported by an indestructible PVC pipe frame that comes in both Almond and Walnut, or aluminum  if you so desire. There other benefit of these beds are the fact that they breathe, in that they allow air to flow through the material based on which material you choose from their selection of 40 oz. Vinyl, Ballistic Nylon, Cordura, or a vinyl weave all in a variety of colors. We chose the vinyl weave as it allows for the most air flow and is extremely easy to clean with a hose. While it can't cure Jake's incontinence, it does allow for a more sanitary environment while also doing wonderful things for his joints. 

While they did not initially take to sleeping in the beds for long periods, they have grown to really enjoy them. There are also fleece covers that you can purchase for the beds (think pillow top) to make them even more comfortable. These are a great option for dog owners who would like an alternative to traditional mattress style beds, or who may have dogs with joint problems, allergies, or incontinence. We're big fans of these beds and this company as they do a lot for shelters and rescues as well. Kudos to Kuranda!

Check out Mickey with his Roxxter from Dublin Dog Co. The more videos we get on this, the more we find that dogs just go nuts for the wild action of this toy. They are a lot of fun, both with & without treats. We especially love the ending of this video where Mickey shows off his skills. Great fan contribution, we love it, and of course we love Mickey!

Dublin Dog Co has just released our newest member to the Original All Style, No Stink family, and she packs a punch, a Poinsettia Punch that is. Modeled after our best selling collection, the Daisy Daze, our Poinsettia Punch features our brand new E3 formulation (Extreme Element Elastomers) with a color palette that just looks festive. The white background looks like crisp white snow, while the poinsettias seem to float right off the collar with their dimensional design. Even though the design features Poinsettias, they're abstract enough to work for both male or female dogs.  However, for those men who are a little scared of the flower power, Dublin Dog has released a brand new Simply Solid color way featuring traditional Red & Green, the hallmark color of the holidays. Whichever model you choose, any recipient will be overjoyed to be on your shopping list this season.

Two cockers plus one sunny afternoon and a big back yard. The ball has been played with, the pool sits silent, the two cocker buddies await their next move. Enter the Roxxter.

Roxxter is a fun toy for dogs from the Dublin Dog Company. Made in the USA, it is designed to make Fido think, try to dispense the treats and have a rolling good, intellectually stimulating time doing so.

Our trusty testers went tally ho and em”barked” (pun intended) on the Roxxter toys. We filled them with a few of their favorite treats and made certain the treats would not get stuck inside. The idea is to have the dog toss the toy around, get the treats out, and in the meantime, get a pretty fun cerebral workout doing so. Double cockers, double fun, two Roxxters and a yummy vanilla scent provided a half hour of giggles to the human pet parents. Supervision is recommended with this and any toy so Fido does not chew through it. However, the super tough material of the Roxxter did not get damaged by the cockers. Actually, after the treats were dispensed, these two buds decided to flip the toy in the air (no doubt, looking for more goodies).

The Roxxter is available and a variety of stores and online. Check out the Dublin Dog Company website at Dublin Dog Company. They retail at about 13.95 and wash clean quite easily; available in a variety of colors.

The long wait is now over! After 4 years of watching the original all style, no stink collar grow, both in popularity and in pure scope we have learned a lot. We are grateful to our customers and critics alike, who remind us that we too can't rely on luck alone to make our products better. Every version of the original All Style, No Stink dog collar has taught us invaluable lessons about what makes a product more than just a commodity. It has to do with safety, reliability, design, and an unspoken agreement of trust with the company behind the product. So with that, we feel we have answered the most pressing desires of our customers and of our own goals for the collar. Featuring completely new hardware, new tooling, new materials including our extreme element elastomers (E3) that has made our collars, softer, stronger, and lighter than ever before; and did I mention made in the USA? So thank you for your patience and we hope that you agree with us, that the wait was well worth it.

As many of you have noticed we are currently out of stock of 90% of the Original All Style, No Stink dog collars? "What's the deal with that?" you say. Well, unless your dog has drug you into the closet or buried you in the backyard you've probably heard a little something about Dublin Dog Co now producing our world renowned collars in the USA. That's right, starting the first full week of July, we'll begin selling our newest version of our versatile All Style, No Stink collars. However, while we've been in production with our new E3 formulation (see blog below), new tooling, and new hardware, we had to deplete our existing stock without manufacturing new inventory from our former factory, using our previous methods. Our success has been predicated on "going for it", taking chances where others were afraid to go. The result; a really good product that makes a lot of sense. However, through your feedback, comments, and wonderful stories, we've found ways to correct our mistakes, improve where we could, and make some advancements. The result is a brand new facelift to our tried and true product line. So thank you for your patience and we hope you love what you see, and feel. As a way of saying thank you for reading this blog, enter "blowout" at checkout to receive 50% off your order from June 29th-July 7th, 2011 on whatever Original All Style, No Stink dog collars are left in stock. It never hurts to have a few on standby. (supplies are limited) Lucky day to you and yours.
