As dog owners and purchasers of countless dog toys over the years, my wife and I have come across a multitude of toys scented like bacon, cheese, hamburgers, chicken, salmon, and other delectable food items. They seem all well and good to dogs, and even appealing to our own human senses, but we felt something was missing. Why not scent a dog toy with a smell that is natural and inherent to a dog? Seemed obvious to us at least. Why not scent a dog toy with a smell that comes from the most popular anatomical location known to all dogkind? Why not scent a dog toy that smells like a dog's butt?
So one day we decided to make a dog toy scented like a dog's butt. But how? It started with understanding what's so attractive and special about a dog's butt. It turns out, a dog's butt is very special. New York Times bestselling author, Alexandra Horowitz writes in her new book, Being a Dog, "At either side of the anus - 'at four and eight o'clock,' one writer helpfully guides the clock-readers among us - are anal sacs producing a strong odor of dog." She continues, "A sniff of another dog reveals who he is, but also information that only the more undignified gaze would catch as it falls. Dogs do not glance under the belly to see if the new dog is male or female. They smell male or female. Moreover, they may smell ready to mate, or being recently ill, or of having recently eaten. They smell their age: age is but a metabolic process, chemistry. And chemistry smells. Dogs smell of having had a bath or not having had one; they smell of having recently peed or very much having to pee. They smell of themselves, their status, and, likely, whether they are scared or happy or anxious." As you can see, a dog's butt is a comprehensive information center.
Our research identified the organic compounds that come from a dog's anal sacs that produce that strong scent of a dog. From there we replicated synthetic versions of these organic compounds. Each of our unique, patent pending dog toys contain an amount that is safe for dogs of any weight, an amount only a dog can detect, and an amount a dog owner can appreciate.
Dogs of every breed and their owners are choosing our Mutt Butts dog toys because they're fun and long-lasting. Even among those Olympian chewers who normally destroy their stuffed toys in mere moments, our toys are lasting weeks and months. So treat your dog to the toys that are EVERY DOG'S DESIRE®!
