When it comes to our pets, product safety is a huge issue. I’ve talked about the recalls of toys made in China that were a major inspiration in my challenge to find products made in USA. Around this same time a massive recall of dog food and treats was announced after pets were becoming sickened. The culprit was found to be a manufacturer in China that was illegally adding melamine, typically used as in plastics and fertilizer, to the food to increase it’s protein content inexpensively.
Luckily, there is no short supply of pet products made in the USA. I present you with a list of American made dog collars, beds, treats and toys. Now you can feel even better about spoiling your pooches – I know I do!
Strong and sturdy dog gear from Skookum Dog, including dog beds, leashes, toys and duffles, is made in Seattle, Washington.
Nearly all Nylabone products are made in USA (look for the flag-waving lab on the packaging!) My two dogs are devoted Nylabone fans.
My dogs are big fans of these natural dog treats.
Kongs are a staple favorite dog toy that also happen to be American made!
