Skip to comments.Meet the man who sells testicular implants for dogs, “People thought I was nuts”

Gregg Miller says he's well aware that his business selling testicular implants for dogs invites just as many jokes as it does clients. That's because Miller's job is creating artificial dog testicles for canines that have been neutered.
"Dogs aren't stupid," he tells Business Week. "They would know if their eye was gouged out, or their foot was cut off. Why wouldn't they know if their testicles are now missing?"
But laugh all you want, Miller, 59, says his business has become a big success. He says 517,223 in all 50 U.S. states and 49 countries are now wearing "Neuticles" manufactured by his company. Though, as Business Week notes, even Miller can't avoid slipping into unintentional humor when discussing his unusual business.
"When Neuticles were introduced commercially in 1995," he says, "people thought I was nuts," he said.
But as the comedian Joan Rivers asked Miller, "What do they do?"
Miller claims the Neuticles gives dogs a sense of restored pride. Though he recommends the "very lifelike" (and more expensive) silicone version of his product (up to $600) compared to the "easily detected" though more affordable "rigid polypropylene version (about $150).
"Generally pet owners think (Neuticles) are genius and non-pet owners think we're insane," he says.
And while Miller offers several different styles and sizes, he also requires customers to include information about their dog's age, weight and breed before matching them with the right pair. "Going larger can create short- and long-term complications and discomfort for the pet," he said.

Probably inspired by the movie, “Van Wilder 2: The Rise Of Taj”.
I can see a market for extra smalls among the RINOs in Congress.
Only a man could think this was important to do.
I searched and searched for John’s name. I seriously thought this was satire.

How many hilarious comments before it gets banned?
“The years passed, mankind became stupider at a frightening rate. Some had high hopes the genetic engineering would correct this trend in evolution, but sadly the greatest minds and resources were focused on conquering hair loss and prolonging erections.” - Narrator, Idiocracy
Bacon or liver flavored?
“people thought I was nuts”
No we thought you sold them.
I guess dogs like licking a pair only.
A friend of mine bought a set for his great dane. Said it changed his personality . Gave him a sense of confidence.
....and the guy who invented breast implants was a real boob.....the guy who invented Viagra thought he pulled a boner.
Do they come in RINO size?
I don’t know if I should ping you with this or not? It does involve dogs... uh, yeah.
“Do they come in RINO size?”
I don’t know if they’re into nanotech or not.
I used to think you were crazy, but now I can see your nuts. :)
