Although they have many devoted dog fans, traditional rawhide chews may pose a risk of intestinal obstruction. Your canine companion can continue its slobbery love affair with meaty treats with Scott Pet’s Pork Chomps, a pork-skin chew product that’s safer and more easily digestible than beef rawhide, according to the manufacturer. Pork Chomps also keep your dog’s teeth clean and are safe for weaned puppies.

Has the average game of fetch lost its challenge for your fantastically fit dog? If so, add a little oomph to your throw with StarMark’s FarFlung, a foam-ball launcher with a telescoping handle that extends from 17 to 26 inches for variable-distance throwing. Without bending over, you can launch a ball up to 100 yards, according to the company.
