Playology -Toys That Add Science to Doggy Play Time


Playology is a dog lifestyle toy brand that caters to a pooch’s of all ages but with special emphasis on senior dogs. They may still have the play drive but are hindered by aging teeth and jaws.

The toys, with the tagline “We’ve Got Happy Down to a Science” have patented Encapsiscent® Technology, a process that embeds all-natural scents directly into the material of the toy instantly engaging a dog’s sense of smell via a variety of all-natural scents, including beef, cheddar cheese, chicken, peanut butter, pork sausage and sweet potato. Plus, the Playology toy shapes cater to dog’s unique characteristics beyond scent based on age, size, breed, chew strength and play style.

We tested the peanut butter infused rope on Riley, a seven-year-old pooch who despite technically being classified as an adult dog, is an aggressive chewer. She gravitated to the chew rope immediately and it has become a first favorite keeping her actively engaged for long chew sessions.

The website Playology features a quiz that helps to take the guessing game out of which of the toys in the range are most suitable for a particular dog.

We gave them the Must Have Stamp of Approval because they deserve to be in every dog’s toy box.

The Must Have Stamp of Approval is based on my personal opinion and the test experiences of the Reigning Cats and Dogs product testers as well as my personal knowledge of the product category. The Must Have Stamp of Approval is designed to advise pet parents on products that will in some way improve their pet’s health and well being, or, their own experiences as a pet parent. Manufacturers are welcome to submit information and samples of new and innovative products for testing. The product testing team consists of dogs and cats of different temperaments and activity levels etc in an attempt to cover a lot of bases and produce worthwhile reviews. The team loves what they do and get to keep the products so they can show off to their friends and further spread the word.
