We finally got to go visit the World Headquarters of ECOXGEAR in Poway, CA and we had a ruffin’ blast. When we were researching gear for this adventure we heard about their waterproof speakers from an online review. Not knowing where to find one locally we just called them and an actual human picked up the phone and guided us to one of these incredible little speakers. We’ve now been using them for over 2 years and being that they’re completly waterproof and virtually indestructible, they have been perfect for our tour as they can handle being outside 24/7 through hot and cold and rain and still sound incredible. They’re also blutooth, the batteries last a very long time, USB chargeable and they look cool too. We started out with the ECOXBT then upgraded to their newer, more powerful ECOSTONE we have mounted to our handle bars. What’s really cool, is as we listen to music or NPR podcasts, we also have our GPS from our phone working so just like in your car, the volume will lower and that Google lady will tell you where to turn. Then when my human’s Mom calls, you push a button and the you have a loud speakerphone with a built in microphone. We enjoy promoting them because we fully believe that they have the best product on the market and after meeting them, they’re just good people with some exciting technology and they play a pretty mean game of fetch. We’re super excited for what’s coming down the line as well. A solar speaker that charges in practically any light will even indoors! The ability to daisy chain multiple speakers to one bluetooth signal. These guys are on the cutting edge of technology and we’re proud to lend them my Paw of Approval. Christmas will here here before you know it so go to their website and check them out. www.ecoxgear.com If you check out their Facebook page, they’re constantly offering big discounts if you order direct. Tell them Bixby, Chicken Charlie & some sweaty human guy on a bike sent you.

Come on. I'm a natural sales dog. Though these Rufftastic little speakers sale themselves.

Everyone was excited that we were there and we took pictures and Barked about our adventures and I took it upon myself to make sure that everyone there knew how to play fetch.

After I shared my expert opinion on future design ideas, I shared with the team some of the highlights of our adventures.

When one of their puppy loving' team members needed a break, I gladly stepped in to take calls and answer questions so other lucky people could share in the ECOLOVE. I ruff her calendar.

It took a little while for that cute little monster in the back ground to warm up to me, but once she did we were fast friends. This is the ECOTERRA. This is one of their first products and it's awesome. This one can house your smart phone or ipod or any other mp3 player and keep it water tight and it sounds great and the batteries last for up to 25 hours.

Everyone is working so hard I thought they might want little liquid pick-me-up. Bixby the doggie barista to the rescue. After all, I am a rescue dog. I mean I give me a cape already!

After dogging the phones and taking all those orders from eager customers, I waste no time boxing the speakers up and getting them ready to ship out. Note: Just after its picture that drink did indeed fall off the box and spill on the floor. ;(

The ECOROX bluetooth speaker is one of their newer products and is perfect to mount on the handlebars of your bicycle. There's a mount on the bottom (like that on the bottom of most cameras) and they make a handle bar mount and you just screw it on. The batteries last up to 12 hours and it has a microphone so you can take phone calls through it.

I took and order for an ECOSTONE while answering phones and I told her that she should be excited, for this is the one that we use and it's the Ruffin' Bomb! Two front facing speakers and a rear facing sub woofer (hahaha, I said woofer) this thing sounds amazing. As we pedal around people can hear us coming. It even drowns out my human's awful singing. Sometimes he's so embarrassing. You should hear him to to Yodel. Also, if your out and your phone goes dead, or bicycle light which I've used, you can charge your device directly from the speakers battery via USB. Really cool feature.

The ECOPEBBLE is their smallest waterproof bluetooth speaker, but don't let it's size fool you. This is a powerful little speaker and you can clip it to anything and bring it anywhere. Here my human has modified a doggie gopro mount and screwed it right on so that I can carry my own tunes with me wherever I want to go. I've used it in the ocean while listening to one of my favorite classic bands Three Dog Night, "joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea, joy to you and me!" These work great for pranks to. hide it somewhere, download any ringtone or sound effect, and prank your friends. My human thinks it's funny when he hides one in my bed on the back of our bicycle and as people walk by, he makes me sound like I'm meowing at them. Sometimes he makes it sound like I pooted too. It's so embarrassing.

After hanging out, answering phones, helping with designs, boxing up and shipping out speakers, demonstrating the different models and playing a fair amount of fetch, I found the break room and took a little doggie siesta.

I like it here.

I see why these are such great speakers. The people who work here really love what they do and believe in the company. I know we sure do. We use ours every single day.

Here's most of the different models they have right now so you can research them on your own on their website. Note: The ECOCLUCK was a limited edition and is no longer be available. www.ecoxgear.com

Bixby and her human, Mike, are bicycling across the U.S. They set out on a Yuba cargo bike from Galveston, TX to a family reunion in Texarkana, AR. That trip worked out well, so they drove to Lubec, ME (the easternmost town in the U.S.) and began pedaling down the east coast to Key West, FL and the southernmost point in the U.S. They are currently pedaling along the Gulf Coast headed to California.
