KONG Safestix Dog Toy
Not for small dogs
I'm a big fan of most Kong products. So I ordered this in small for my ten pound mix breed dog since he loves to run through the yard with real sticks. This thing arrived in the neon green color and it's very large, but also heavy. I knew it was 11 inches or so, but it's much thicker than I anticipated and quite heavy. Since he's part chihuahua, he has a tiny mouth and had trouble carrying this.
As for appearance, my entire family immediately commented that this looked like an adult toy. It's VERY ill conceived in design.
Sorry, Kong, but you blew it on this item. I'm seriously disappointed and can't (and wouldn't) use this for reasons above. I can't even recommend it.

Not for power chewer
It was destroyed in less than 5 minutes by my super power chewer GSD. I was hoping that it would be a rope substitute since he usually ends up eating the ropes. It seemed to be pretty flexible and durable enough when we played tug and I let him ngaw on it. When I turned around, I heard a snap sound and the thing was broken into two pieces - not sure how he did it. He looked surprised himself... So, if you have a power chewer, it won't survive.

Ordered this in Medium for my 7 1/2 month old golden retriever. It arrived, and it's green. It's also HUGE! Definitely an outdoor only toy. It's thick, heavy duty, and will last a long, long time. The green shows up well in the grass. Loki likes it, and it is so much better, imho, than a regular stick.

Much Larger than they appear in pictures!!
Very well made but wish the came in a brighter color...we were shipped the blue which can be tough to find in the woods!! Definitely bigger than I expected but it will work well for my 2 weimaraners (it is big enough that they can use it together).

my GSD loves this toy! It's tough and easy to clean.

Disturbing looking dog toy!
If I had any idea how disturbing of a toy this would look like I would never have bought it. It looks like something you'd find in an adult store, not a pet toy. I can't even leave it out as it is embarrassing looking.

Heavy chewers will love this...
My dog is a had chewer and it has ben a challenge to find a toy that she will not destroy in 5 minutes. this was a nice surprise! She has not been able to chew thru it and likes the toy also....It was bigger than I expected and when she carries it around we do have to be careful when she swings it around as she will knock down items.

GOOD chew toy
This is another quality, indestructible toy from KONG. The only problem I found, was it was too long, especially for indoors. I solved that by cutting it in half, and now it is perfect.
