Pawfun Product Test: Hear Doggy – a squeaky toy only dogs can hear


Every Tuesday night, from 9:30 to 10 p.m. EDT, I do a podcast called Beyond Social Media with my colleagues Albert Maruggi and Dave Erickson. The minute we start, Benny Bix Ochman Labradoodle Puppy gets the loudest squeaky toy in the house – a purple elephant – and begins squeaking happily.

Screen Shot 2013-05-28 at 10.10.53 PMLast week, a new toy arrived for Benny: an Ultrasonic Hear Doggy Martian plush toy with a squeaker only dogs can hear. And Benny’s blue Martian has Chew Guard, so he (or she) will be around a while. They’re made by Quaker Pet Group.

As the website explains, “The science behind Hear Doggy: Dogs can hear sounds at a higher frequency (0 to 45 KHz) than humans (0 to 20 KHz). Tuned to an ultrasonic range in the 24-28 KHz frequency, each Hear Doggy squeaker is out of human hearing range, but still fun for your four-legged friend.”

Apparently, our cat, The Nonster, can also hear the sound, as can all the dogs who live on our floor. They told Benny that they all want their own Hear Doggy toys. We give this toy Four Paws Up.
