About Pet Qwerks Toys

Enriching the lives of pets is our top priority.

Jim and Koko

Pet Qwerks was started with a single toy, the Babble Ball. That was our first product and it remains our flagship today.

How It All Started

It all started with a man and his dog. In 2003, Jim Gick’s dog Koko brought him his favorite toy. The toy was broken and Koko was asking his dad to fix it. Not sure quite how to fix it yet, Jim put the toy on a workbench in the garage where it stayed until one day when a trip to the hardware store changed everything.

Jim came home with a rubber yoyo ball and an idea.

He worked on Koko’s toy – reimagining it – until it became the first prototype of what is now the Babble Ball. He added a key element to Koko’s favorite toy, a motion sensor that made it make noise whenever Koko touched it. After some more tweaking, the Babble Ball was born, given a name, and ready to sell.

Since then more fun wisecracks have been added to the Babble Ball and its gone from a rubber to a strong plastic casing. It didn’t take long for the Babble Ball to become the best toy option for dogs with hearing or vision impairments. And now, it even blinks while it talks at the same!

Innovation

Since the Babble Ball, Jim hasn’t stopped creating. (And he doesn’t intend to anytime soon!) Since Pet Qwerks Toys was born in 2003, Jim has kept inventing new ideas based on the simple principle that pets come first. Every product made by Pet Qwerks is carefully crafted with the assumption that pets are smart. Every product made by Pet Qwerks is done with the care and safety of your pets.

While the heart of Pet Qwerks remains in the interactive category, we have grown to also manufacture rubber, tire toys and talking plush toys.

In 2013, Jim decided it was time to expand the offerings of Pet Qwerks Toys and added dog chews to the product line. First, he noticed how much dogs like deer antlers, but that they weren’t always safe. So he created an antler option without the fear of splintering. The Flavorit Bone dog chews came next with small cells you can fill with your dog’s favorite flavor.

Innovation

And since Jim was on a roll, he invented the BarkBone. Another chew toy that would change the world of dog chews forever. Jim created this bone with authenticity in mind. He saw the other dog chews available and noticed that none of them were authentic to the shape of a bone, and although they might be flavored, that flavor didn’t stick around long after your dog started gnawing on it.

That’s when Jim decided these options weren’t good enough. So he created one that was The BarkBone. It’s a dog chew that gives your dog an authentic experience of chewing on a bone. Our BarkBone category has expanded since.

Pet Qwerks Toys Gives Back

We know how important it is to give back to the community. That’s why we decided to team up with two non-profit organizations that give to those in need.

In 2019, Pet Qwerks Toys partnered with Guide Dog Foundation and America’s VetDogs to provide toys and chews to the dogs who will spend their lives in service to others. The Guide Dog Foundation works to breed, raise, train, and then place dogs with people who are visually impaired or have special needs. America’s VetDogs organization works to train and place dogs with veterans who need independence, enhanced mobility, and companionship.

By providing these outstanding organizations with toys and chews, Pet Qwerks is able to reach out to communities all across the US. We are proud to give back to our community and serve those in need.
