***Disclaimer: I was reimbursed with free product for an honest review. My opinions do not reflect those of PrideBites company.***
I was really excited when I became a PrideBites “PAWtner” back in February 2014. I got invited to review toys and products throughout the year on my blog. There was a conference call in February between me and a representative for PrideBites and I was promised a toy within 3 weeks to review. Well, after sending numerous emails over several months, I finally received a toy in September. It took them 7 months to get a toy for me to review after a plethora of broken promises about getting me a great product for Wynston to enjoy.
When I finally opened the package, Wynston was not impressed. He loves toys. All toys. He didn’t even want to touch this one. He sniffed it and pawed at it, but simply walked away. I have never seen him act that way with a toy. Maybe he sensed my frustration?
I think the toy is meant for dogs that tear toys up easily. It’s very light and durable. The one Wynston received was the ice cream cone. It’s cute, but nothing special. PrideBites toys are known for lasting through many different types of play – tug of war, water play and fetch. The toy Wyn got is priced at $9.99.
I may recommend PrideBites toys for dogs who play rough and tough. But I won’t recommend PrideBites overall as a company. I feel they treated me poorly, broke promise after promise and it took 7 WHOLE MONTHS to get me a toy after being told I’d get one in February. I’m surprised I got treated so poorly since I am a voice for dog moms, and such a heavy influence in my area. Overall, it’s been a disappointing experience, and I am no longer going to associate myself with the company.
