    Chad's Crappy Corner & His Final Gadgets For His Theme For May 2017, Pet Gadgets

    Chad polled our amazing Patreon members and asked them to vote on a theme for May. Their choice was “cheap pet gadgets”. This week Chad ends the month with two cheap pet gadgets. Here's what Amazon said about them:

    The Wobble Wag Giggle™ Ball is a noise-making ball that will quickly become your dog's favorite toy. This unique ball toy features 6 clutch pockets spread around the surface of the ball that allow dogs to easily grab the ball and carry it. When the ball moves, it produces a unique giggle sound that will excite and delight your pup, enticing them into longer, more rewarding play sessions. Wobble Wag Giggle™ Ball is made of flexible and durable phthalate-free vinyl to ensure that it is safe for your pooch. The ball uses simple tubes to produce the noise without the use of batteries, making it long-lasting and easy to maintain. $9.99



    Humunga Chomp Dog Toy My what big teeth you have! Your pooch will the envy of the dog run when he’s sporting these million-dollar molars. Perfect, pearly-whites (of the human variety!) surround the circumference of this gummy-pink, durable, natural rubber hollow ball. These crazy canines are ideal for your crazy canine! Heh heh! Made of all non-toxic materials; ball is hollow with a hole on the top and bottom. Ideal for dogs 25 lbs +; ball diameter is 2.4" which is similar to a tennis ball. $12.69



    And Chad's and Charlie's (Chad's Dog) Take On These Gadgets?


    The Wobble Wag Giggle ball is big and so Charlie didn't even attempt to pick it up. But Charlie seemed to enjoy the sounds the ball makes, and he quickly learned to push it around with his nose. So I guess that's a 'paws up' from Charlie. The fun, at least for the pet owner, of the Humunga Chomp Dog Toy is that it might look like your dog has huge pearly-white teeth if they pick the ball up in the exact correct position. Charlie didn't quite manage to do that, but let Chad arrange the ball so it looked pretty cute. (Be sure to watch this week's show to see Charlie in action.) White Teeth look aside, Charlie seemed to enjoy this just as a ball, so the decision is probably up to the pet owner whether to just buy a cheap ball, or spend $12.69 on a cute one. But all in all, Chad thought the two pet gadgets for under $30 wasn't a bad deal.
