Rated 1 out of 5 by BClark Did not hold up to chewing at all.
The toy was a great fetch toy to throw into the pond, but once the chewing began...this toy last 3 minutes, and I had to throw it out. Really disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nikkigirl Great fun!
My two dogs love playing with this. They each grab on and tug of war begins.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nico Sturdy but awkward
I've got some very large puppies and this is a bit big for them. It's sturdy and stands up to chewing but they don't like it as much as other toys because it's so big.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveReese Great "stick"
My German Shepherd puppy loved playing with sticks! It worried me that she was going to knock it down her throat running or her puppy friend would make it hurt her by accident. With this Kong Stix I don't have to worry about that anymore. I will say that the material is decently tough but it does get cracked by her teeth. It's not a good toy to use for tug of war or to allow just to lay and chew on. My girl always has hers available so it may be partially where she just lays and chews it. We had our first one for a year and she still plays with it. The pieces don't come off, but it's getting worn. Also, we accidentally left it ouside in the hot sun one day and it made it kinda curl a lil bit. Not a problem, but you may not want to leave it in the sun long on a hot, humid day. She loves to shake them around. Bought her a new one for Christmas. She loves them both! I definitely recommend this toy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve Great retrieve toy for boisterous dogs
Some other reviewers say their dogs chewed this up. Well, I suppose it COULD be chewed, but 1) It's not meant as a chew toy, but as a retrieve toy, 2) It WILL NOT be chewed up easily by any dog I've spent a lot of time around. It's quite tough. Just use it as it's meant to be used and you should be fine.
I purchased the large size (which is significantly cheaper at Chewy than anywhere else I checked). It's a very substantial toy -- the largest, most boisterous dog will get a big kick out of chasing, biting, tugging and running with this toy (large size). Chewy delivered it the next day for a low rate (I don't know how they're doing this! -- I've ordered from them for delivery to NJ, and also for delivery to IL, and I receive my order within a day or two every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Topshot Nice for chewers
I got this for my large (50 lbs) 7 month old puppy. He enjoys chewing it, and it's easy to throw for a game of fetch. It's also great for tug of war fun. I recommend the medium size for a large dog - it's just the right size without being too big or awkward and doesn't take up as much room as the large size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sharlie Great and durable toy
This toy is a crowd favorite with my dogs. They love to play tug of war with it. It's held up to 4 large breed dogs with heavy use. It's a winner in my book.
