America’s Pets Are Going Red, White and Blue For The Holidays

December 5, 2011

FARMINGTON HILLS, MI – (For Immediate Release) – It may be hard to find Made-In-The USA home electronics products this holiday season, but pet lovers should have no problem buying American when it comes to selecting gifts for their dogs, cats and other critters. American manufacturers have come up with a variety of products to amuse and pamper our nation’s nearly 220 million pets this holiday season and throughout 2012 – all while helping to provide jobs for their human companions. Here’s a brief rundown:

KONG Genius – Made by the Golden, Colorado based KONG Company these toys interlocking canine IQ toys are designed to boost a dog’s problem-solving skills (or “Yankee Ingenuity”). Although they’re named after Italian Renaissance figures Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo, these unique toys are as American as apple pie. For photos and more information: and

KONG Kitty Wobbler – A treat-dispensing toy that resembles an oversized Weeble, this interactive USA-made toy appeals to the problem-solving skills of cats and makes them work for their treats. When swatted it moves in unique and unpredictable ways, kind of in keeping with the American spirit.
