KONG Squeezz Stick Dog Toy
Tough but not tough enough!
We have a 2-year-old Alaskan Husky mix that is a serious chewer. Unfortunately, this Kong toy couldn't handle it. Dakota broke the squeaker within minutes of getting the toy. 5 hours later, he had chewed end pieces off. Although it is a Kong toy, it is not made from the same durable rubber as the classic rubber toys. If your dog isn't a serious chewer, then this toy would be great. I would still recommend it to people as it is a good quality toy.

Depends on the dog, I guess
This seemed so promising! I have a lab/shepherd mix who loves squeaky toys, and a beagle and a pit bull who chew toys up. I thought since this was by Kong, it would be able to withstand at least some abuse, and my mix loved it - until my SENIOR BEAGLE chewed it for a little while and the squeaker was dead. Seemed like the toy was awfully easy to 'kill' for something that was supposed to be more sturdy - it lasted one day. :(

Best and most durable toy for dogs. Period.
My dogs LOVE these squeezz sticks. It's the only toy they can't destroy. The squeakers still squeak after months of playing with them. They can sit there and gnaw on the toy and it doesn't disintegrate yet the toy is rubbery and chewy for them which they seem to like. Since the toys are shaped like sticks, it's easy for them for them to fetch and carry around with them in their mouths. This is the only toy I will buy my dogs now as they last forever. They have 4 of them, one of which is still around after a year.

Not good for strong chewers
I have a couple of rottweilers and a Lab, all of who are strong chewers, and this toy lasted maybe 5 minutes before they had big chunks bitten out of it. It would probably be OK for a puppy or maybe a dog that isn't a strong chewer, but if you have a large breed dog who loves to go to town on his chew toys, you should try something else.

Best toy to play fetch with
Our puppies love to play fetch and keep away and these are the best for that

Finally From Kong
Finally Kong seems to have solved the problem with the construction of "recessed squeaker" toys. This model (Squeez Stick) as well as the Squeez Ring have held together now for more than 4 weeks of nearly constant (2 to 4 hours per day) retrieving and chewing from my squeak obsessed Golden Retriever. The large balls and footballs came apart or stopped squeaking in less than an hour and I purchased 8 of these without any success. All of these failed without exception. My dog likes the ring much more than the stick. I have a couple of the small animals which also are holding up so far but it is too soon and too little play time to tell.

Lasts longer than most squeaky toys and is big enough for both of my girls to grab onto!
