Our HuggleHounds Original Knotties® Story
HUGGLEHOUNDS® KNOTTIES® - THE ORIGINAL KNOTTED, PLUSH DOG TOY!
Back in 2009, our very first HuggleHounds® Knotties® arrived on store shelves as the original knotted, plush dog toy. The Woodland KnottiesTM remain in our collection to this day, and are still among our best-sellers. Each year, they’re joined by new toy colors and characters, along with exclusive, new holiday designs and officially licensed college mascot Knotties(TM). Why are HuggleHounds® Knotties® the most sought after plush toy? There are many reasons, and we love having the opportunity to detail the ways HuggleHounds® and our Knotties® are truly exceptional dog toys!
BACKED BY TECHNOLOGY
We pack more research, technology, cuteness and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques into our toys than most manufacturers, and nowhere is that more evident than in our Knotties®.
Each one of our Knotties® is designed by us here in the U.S., and each is an original work of art.
HuggleHounds® Tuffut Technology® lining means extra layers of lining give our plush Knotties® extra durability and strength.
DOGS LOVE THEM!
We understand how dogs play, so we purposely designed our toys with knotted limbs – perfect for how dogs love to tug and pull, both instinctive drives. These “knotted” limbs and overall design shape make our Knotties® unique and original - yes, we understand (and LOVE!) dogs!
HuggleHounds® Knotties® are loaded with squeakers, and are all machine washable!
WE'VE DONE THE RESEARCH
We spend countless hours traveling the world to bring the newest, freshest colors and fabrics to our designs. Knotties® are created with the softest plush corduroy fabric available, and embellishments which give our toys design detail few, if any, manufacturers can duplicate.
CE Certification means our toys comply with the highest safety and environmental standards - good for you, good for your pet and good for the world around us. Every one of our Knotties® goes through a thorough quality control inspection before shipping, and before reaching our inventory.
OUR EXCLUSIVE TUFFUT TECHNOLOGY®! IT’S THE INGREDIENT THAT MAKES OUR KNOTTIES® THE STRONGEST, MOST DURABLE PLUSH TOYS PRODUCED.
Other manufacturers might tout tough toys, but HuggleHounds® invented the durable, double-layer Tuffut Technology® lining, identified by its firefly green color, so don’t settle for less. HHU_TUFFUT_LOGO Our innovative, exclusive lining means every Tuffut Technology® lined toy comes equipped with two hidden layers – tested to withstand 100# of tugging and pulling pressure – and the layers are laminated to one another. It is then affixed to the outside plush fabric before being sewn into the toys. This 2-layer process makes our toys so special – extra protection from aggressive chewers! Look for our tag with a sample of our Tuffut Technology® lining when you shop for plush toys for your pet.
YOUR DOG’S SAFETY IS OUR JOB #1
HuggleHounds® dedicated the time and resources necessary to ensure our Knotties® carry the CE mark, recognizable worldwide as declaration our products comply with the requirements of the European health, safety and environmental legislation.
Our innovative, brand new 2019 Holiday Sparkle collection even goes a step further, certified to carry the Underwriters Laboratories label. UL is a world leader in product safety testing and certification.
Of course, no toy is indestructible. As strong and well-made as our toys are, always supervise play with your dog to prevent accidental swallowing of any part of a toy. Loose parts can present a choking hazard or an intestinal blockage. If any part of a toy becomes damaged or separated, replace the toy. If your dog swallows any part of a toy, take your dog to a veterinarian immediately. And keep this toy away from children.
