When it comes to testing toys, I have an assortment of volunteers. One of the most avid toy testers is Fuzzy who has owned Gary Rohde in Southern California ever since Gary rescued him from a shelter. A rather insecure, anxious dog who seemed to come not with baggage but a full set of luggage, he has flourished under Gary's loving care, great socialization and gentle training.

Fuzzy has turned into a connoisseur of dog toys. Give him one and he'll be happy to play until he has either destroyed the toy or finally grows tired, whichever comes first. When I was offered an opportunity to test Chuckit, a LIGHTPLAY toy by Petmate, Fuzzy was a pretty obvious choice.

A bonus of this group of new toys is that it can be seen when it's starting to get dark and great indoors to keep you from falling over the toy in the middle of the night if it's still charged. The Max Glow rubber charges under a bright light - including light from a cell phone in less than 10 minutes and the glow lasts for up to 30 minutes of nighttime play.

I asked that one of the toys be shipped directly to Gary and Fuzzy. It arrived quickly and Fuzzy immediately bonded with the box - after all, it was for him, contents and all.
Gary unpacked the toy and Fuzzy loved it, playing with it on the sofa in their apartment. Then off they went for the real test - outdoors on one of their multiple daily walks.

Fuzzy gives this toy 4 paws up! Gary and Luke seem to concur. The fact that Fuzzy hasn't been able to destroy it is another major plus since he's hard on toys. Gary enthused that, "Fuzzy loves it!"
As you can see in the pictures (and the video below), Chuckit is a big hit with Fuzzy, Gary and Luke.

If you want a LIGHTPLAY toy for your special canine friend, please comment on this post. A winner in the U.S. will be chosen at random from all entries. Check back on Monday when I'll announce the lucky winner!
NOTE: I was not paid for this review. The toy was sent to Gary Rohde so he and his dog, Fuzzy, could test it. No money changed hands. This review is based on Gary's experiences with the toy, his dog and their young friend, Luke.
