Rhino Play is Dog's Play

GoDog Rhino Play is as tough and fun as its name implies!
Barking from the Bayou, LLC received a goDog RhinoPlay toy in exchange for an honest review. We only share products that we use and believe would be of interest to our readers. GoDog is not responsible for the contents of this article
   Bentley and Pierre LOVE their toys. There are several go-to favorites you can depend on them to grab for a game of tug or catch. It is important those toys can stand up to Bentley’s strength and Pierre’s Terrierism! We received a new toy for Bentley’s birthday from goDog® but Pierre has claimed it as his own. It is a tough molded non-toxic PopFoamNT™ that has earned its name, RhinoPlay™. If goDog says it is durable, I believe them. After all, this is not our first goDog toy
