Throw, Fetch, Repeat

Hank can sniff out a great product from a mile away. Having spent the last several years with his nose down here at The Grommet headquarters, he jumped on the chance to finally launch his own discovery, The Stik. Hank knows innovation, especially when it comes to the pet industry. He understands what makes one pet product stand out from the rest and is ready to take a leap, representing all of the four-legged Pet-Entrepreneurs out there. Made in the U.S.,The Stik is Mother Nature’s ultimate form of entertainment for dogs. This toy is 100% made of recycled wood, which is a great fit for pets because it’s natural and nontoxic. Hank knows that The Stik will make any pup out there wag their tail, and we're pretty confident that Hank knows his stuff. Who would second guess a dog in a tie, right?

    Hello Grommet Community, Hank Williams Jr. Jr. here. Since Mother Earth is a bit tied up today, I’ll be answering any questions you might have about my amazing discovery, The Stik. By the way, what did you think of my tie in the video? Dapper right? I really think red is my color…

    Can you choose size of stick. When will we be able to buy it. My dog is a chewer and 20 lb dashound about how long will a stick last when chewed everyday. What makes dogs attracted to the stick?

  • Hank
    Hank – Special Guest
    4/1/2014 12:34 PM

    @Joan There is an endless possibilities of shapes and sizes you can choose from. Just pick one up in any wooded area near you. Depending on the size of The Stik you choose, your Dashound could go eat through it within an hour to a couple days.

    Many things attract dogs to The Stik. The wooded texture, variety of tastes, woodsy smell...what else can a pooch ask for?

    Do I need to wait until a stick falls to the ground or can I actually snap a stick of choice off of a tree? I think this is ingenious and look forward to rescuing a dog to try out these "sticks" Is there a certain breed or dog you would recommend I rescue or are sticks inherent in your society as stress releases.

  • Hank
    Hank – Special Guest
    4/1/2014 12:41 PM

    @DENNIS Hi Dennis,

    I would personally recommend waiting until The Stik hits the ground. Mother Earth may not appreciate breaking them off before they are ready.

    Any breed of dog will appreciate this but I definitely recommend a rescue pup. Feel free to reach out more if you should need some help finding a good rescue organization. I am a bit of a expert in this department.

    4/1/2014 1:05 PM

    @sandra Hi Sandra, I would definitely not recommend humans chewing on them. Your teeth are not built for the barky goodness. However, you can relieve some stress by going out to wooded areas with your pup and playing fetch. The woods have extreme powers to calm the human mind...or so I hear.

    You'll be hearing from our attorney Mr. Barksdale.

    Dear Igor & Mr, Barksdale,

    I am sorry to hear that you have a moral opposition to The Stik. We certainly do not want to encourage dangerous play, however, the Stik is safe in almost all circumstances. It sounds as if Igor may need some glasses to help ensure safe play with Stiks. I can recommend someone who can hook him up with a great pair of glasses. Either way, I bet Igor is a good-looking fellow and I would love to see some photos of him.

    Igor and Mr. Barksdale, I think upon further inspection you will find The Grommet to be a top notch place to find the best pet toy. Please look around our site a bit as I am sure you discover something wonderful. Maybe start with Crinket. It is a very safe toy that can be used indoors. Thanks again.

  • Angela

    @Hank it is not a joke, dogs can die or are seriously injured playing with sticks.

    Please stop promoting dangerous toys. The Grommet should expect to hear from dog owners who have lost dogs due to playing with sticks.

    Each year veterinarians across the planet see injured patients. It is not worth it. I emailed your staff but received no reply. I assume you feel a joke is just that, a joke.

    I sincerely hope your promotion of unsafe play toys as being very safe, does not result in a lawsuit. Shame on you.

    @Aimee Hi there Aimee,

    We are so happy to have brought some joy into your day. Dogs love The Stik because it connects them to nature. Why do you think we love riding in the car with our heads out the window? So many sights and smells to be experienced. The Stik is perfect for active or lazy pups and can be incorporated into many activities.

    I do like to chew on Stiks but ALWAYS spit it out. No one wants to swallow splinters.....that's not to say that I have not eaten worse things. :)

    Aimee, here at The Grommet, we are relentless in our pursuit to make our customers happy. I am thrilled to hear that I have aided in that. Have a fantastic day!

    @Mary Hi Mary, the humans here at The Grommet never encourage any dangerous play but from a dog's point of view....we just love chewing on things. Stiks should always be used under human supervision as to prevent any mishaps. Pet safety is always our top priority. I apologize if my pitch did not state that enough. Sometimes, my puppy instinct takes over.

    Thank you for voicing your concern.

    Dear Hank, My younger brother used to brings sticks from a tree in our backyard, to my mother, as presents. He knew how much she liked sticks. (switches) She would save them for when she needed them. She would usually let me have it. The stick, would come from a tree/bush, that was a wiry type, with yellow flowers. Could you guarantee that the sticks you send, would not come from this type of tree? I don't like those, even though it has been 35 years, since I saw one coming. And, if you see my little brother, tell him how I still remember!! Thank you, Dawn

    Hi Dawn, Stiks come in so many varieties but we always stay away from any with wiry textures or thorns. We prefer smooth ones.

    If I happen to run into your brother at the dog park, I'll make sure to let him know. I have three older sisters, Stella, Zoë & Lilly (2 cats & 1 dog), so I know what siblings are like! :)

Even my cat loved The Stik (before the original was discontinued)--she liked to pick it up in her paws and fling it in the air, or bury it in a pile of leaves and stalk it. Hours of fun for cats AND dogs! How marvelous that The Stik has returned to amuse a whole new pet generation! Thanks, Hank! Happy April 1! :)

    I do like to chew on Stiks but ALWAYS spit it out. No one wants to swallow splinters.....that's not to say that I have not eaten worse things. :)

    Aimee, here at The Grommet, we are relentless in our pursuit to make our customers happy. I am thrilled to hear that I have aided in that. Have a fantastic day!

    @KymNoelle Hello KymNoelle, I am a pretty clever fellow. :) My ears a literally perked with delight in waiting to hear what our community thinks. I have been at The Grommet for about a year and a half now and this is my first launch. Soooo exciting!

    Please don't advertise dogs to chew on sticks. Very dangerous. Chards of sticks can get caught in their mouths, throat, intestines, stomach, etc. DO NOT let dogs chew on sticks.

    @Mary Hi Mary, the humans here at The Grommet never encourage any dangerous play but from a dog's point of view....we just love chewing on things. Stiks should always be used under human supervision as to prevent any mishaps. Pet safety is always our top priority. I apologize if my pitch did not state that enough. Sometimes, my puppy instinct takes over.

    Thank you for voicing your concern.

    @Hank dogs can die, even with supervision. That is the point. They can bleed to death right in front of their owners.

    I am done with this farce and this company.

    Dear Hank, My younger brother used to brings sticks from a tree in our backyard, to my mother, as presents. He knew how much she liked sticks. (switches) She would save them for when she needed them. She would usually let me have it. The stick, would come from a tree/bush, that was a wiry type, with yellow flowers. Could you guarantee that the sticks you send, would not come from this type of tree? I don't like those, even though it has been 35 years, since I saw one coming. And, if you see my little brother, tell him how I still remember!! Thank you, Dawn

    @Dawn

    Hi Dawn, Stiks come in so many varieties but we always stay away from any with wiry textures or thorns. We prefer smooth ones.

    If I happen to run into your brother at the dog park, I'll make sure to let him know. I have three older sisters, Stella, Zoë & Lilly (2 cats & 1 dog), so I know what siblings are like! :)

    Thanks for sharing your story, Dawn!

    Hank, you've done it again! Even my cat loved The Stik (before the original was discontinued)--she liked to pick it up in her paws and fling it in the air, or bury it in a pile of leaves and stalk it. Hours of fun for cats AND dogs! How marvelous that The Stik has returned to amuse a whole new pet generation! Thanks, Hank! Happy April 1! :)
