New Products 2015: Mini Skinneeez Stuffingless Animal Dog Toy

Once completed you think they would have nothing left to play with but they do, they love to shake the skin around and play tug with it. The Skinneeez line of dog toys basically takes the stuffing removal step out of the picture and allows your dog to have happy pleasure while winging the toy from one side of the room to the other.
