GoughNuts pet toys are designed to address the simple but serious issue of SAFETY. The GoughNuts chew toys are designed knowing that safety and fun go hand in hand. Each GoughNuts pet toy has included in its design the GoughNuts patent pending visual safety indicator where Green means “Go” and Red means “Stop”.
GoughNuts Original is a terrific chew toy. There are three variations to choose from.
GoughNuts Black – Most dog owners that have a “power chewer” want the strongest available chew toy. The GoughNuts Black incorporates the original GoughNuts green but then adds carbon technology to enhance performance. It is recommended for extreme chewers, and is guaranteed.
GoughNut Original Green – It all started in the inventors kitchen, with an idea of “Green means Go and Red means Stop.” The GoughNut Original green is tough, bounces, rolls, floats, and whatever else you can think of. Plus there are few/no weak points on this original shape and thus the one of the reasons for its toughness.
GoughNut Original Yellow – Our New Yellow is very vibrant and is the same recipe as our original green which means the durability on the yellow will be the same as our green. Part of our company is fun and this color sure is fun!
The MAXX – If you have a very large breed or you have “that” dog, you need the MAXX, which is the largest version of the original design. The MaXX is 6.25 inches in diameter where the original is 5 inches. The cross section of the MaXX is 2.1 inches versus the 1.75 inches on the original.
Maybe your dog needs a GoughNut!
Below is a test comparison between our GoughNut Black and our Original GoughNut Green. Please understand that regardless of how strong any chew toy is made, certain dogs will chew through it. Therefore, our two layered patent pending safety design is incorporated in our GoughNuts Black. The two layered patent pending design gives a clear indication when the Goughnut Black turns color from Black to Red it is time to take the GoughNut Black away from your dog.
Every GoughNut toy is guaranteed and when any red is seen, this indicates that the diameters of the toy are damaged.
Please read the entire patent online to understand the details of our two layered patent pending design.
Please note that the The Original GoughNut has a cross section of 1.75″. Physical properties shown below are measured in PSI or pounds per square inch.
The test results shown follow ASTM methods D412, D2240, & D624 (seen in sections 9.01 & 9.02)
GoughNuts Green GoughNuts Black
Tensile 3500 PSI 3800 PSI
Tear Die C 140 PSI 180 PSI
Hardness 43 48
The GoughNuts Black properties are higher. The hardness will hold your dog’s jaw open more than the Green taking leverages away that lessen the dog’s power. The higher tear strength and tensile strength testing show the GoughNut Black increase in physical properties.
Our goal is safety. The additional of carbon technology incorporated with the GoughNuts base recipe allows for the additional strength of the GoughNut Black. Please adhere to the two layered patent pending technology.
Remember – Please take your GoughNut away if your dog can chew through the Black or Green layer to expose the Red.
