Los Angeles, CA, May 22, 2018 — Biff the Dog® branded pet products are coming to a store near you! The highly developed Biff the Dog brand has a PAWSitively lovable vibe. Our cute pooch with the spiked collar resonates with kids everywhere by exemplifying the attribute everyone loves in their own pets — unconditional love.
Since Biff the Dog is known for sporting his signature plush spiked collar, his sub-brand pays tribute to this feature in Biff’s new SPIKED! by P.L.A.Y. line. Now pets of all sizes, ages and breeds can unleash their inner Biff with this adorable array of spiked plush products, including eco-friendly beds, toys and collars. The collaboration with P.L.A.Y. (Pet Lifestyle And You), a premier pet products manufacturer and Certified B Corp, allows pet parents to feel confident in these durable and playfully designed products that have been thoughtfully made with sustainable materials.
The products are in production now and will be available this August on PetPlay.com and BifftheDog.com, and in local boutiques shortly after. Come check them out at the Licensing International Expo in Las Vegas in May, where Lawless Entertainment is featuring Biff the Dog at Booth A92.
