My Beagle Gracie Mae is hard on toys. Most toys last her 5 -15 minutes to get a hole to start to remove the inside. This Kong toy last for weeks to months. Inside the body of the toy it’s only knotted ropes. Gracie will eventually chew through the knots. The squeaky is in the head with a little stuffing. Well worth the money.
My dog loves his Kong Elephant. At first he was a little different about it then other toys. But once he played with it for a while he was good. Now it’s the first thing he gets when he’s ready to play first thing in the morning.
I have three dogs - two who are older and don’t play much and they love these! My third pup is a 2-year old Dalmatian who is ready to pull, tug, chew 24/7. He loves this toy and has not destroyed it yet!!
This has never been my dogs favorite toy, but it's sturdy and good for fetch and he picks it about as often as any of the others. I'd recommend this for dogs that need sturdy toys, as far as I can tell even if they chew through the outside the rope inside will still hold it all together.
My 1 year old had the stuffing out within 5 minutes. I was expecting a Kong toy to be a bit more durable, it says for aggressive chewers. That is not the case.
King is supposed to be an enjoyable safe indestructible toy for dogs. These ropes on the ends of the arms and legs were chewed off and pieces swallowed in five minutes! and the nose. I threw it away!
The kong soft toys including the elephant are wonderful for one dog to nibble on and for my two dogs to play tug of war with. The rope construction is brilliant!
I got the fox version of this and it held up well, so I bought this one. It's held up much better than the rabbit, though my corgi has learned the secret of how to unravel the ends. Still, he really loves it and I'm happy with the purchase.
I have a Beagle who is a very tough chewer and so far this toy has stood up to the task.
Our little mixed breed dog loves this elephant. It's so cute! Keep in mind that she isn't rough on her toys that she plays with occasionally. I don't know how it would hold up to a bigger, more aggressive chewer.
