These two toys are not for dogs that like to chew. I was sent a second set of them after I let customer service know that my two dogs, one a 75 lb black lab and one a 30 lb lab/husky, tore them apart for the second time within 30 minutes to an hour. So the description that it’s for big chewers and that since it’s made from knotted rope inside is inaccurate. This product is not well made. It’s still filled with stuffing as well and a squeaker that my dogs almost choked on. Thankfully I monitor them when they have any type of chew toy or bones. I don’t want a third order of them so my dogs can choke on the stuffing and squeak balls inside of them right away. It’s not a safe toy. I’d like a refund and the descriptions should be edited to not mislead pet parents.
We have had another of these Kong rope animals for three months and were excited to get a different animal for our puppy. Within 10 minutes, our dog totally destroyed this! We are so disappointed.
I have in the past bought the Kong Fox. Actually, it seems to be my 1 yr. old labs favorite so I've bought many because as much as Riley seems to love it, it does eventually need replacing. I think Riley thinks he is on a fox hunt so when he has it, he feels the need to kill it. ha, ha I was hoping that the hippo would last as long as the fox always did but it didn't. I gave it to him on Christmas evening and two days later, both squeakers had been removed(yes, I threw those right away) and all of the stuffing. He is quite the chewer though. So, the only thing left is body parts, minus the ears. lol That's why I only gave it a 4 star rating. If you want one to last, I would say definitely go for the fox one. I haven't given him the bunny one yet. I thought I would wait for awhile.
My 1 year old pointer Tuula loved this toy for 3 days. It is now in the trash because she found the squeaker. The nose of the hippo was easily accessible for her. Great toy if your dog doesn't have a thing for squeakers. Unfortunately, mine now finds squeakers fascinating and accessible. I fear for the rest of her Christmas presents.
I have always like Kong toys because they seem to hold up. Got this toy for my Aussie for Christmas and in less than 10 minutes, it was completely destroyed! Such a waste of money and I am SO disappointed in Kong for putting their name on a piece of junk.
This is a very good toy and lasted longer than most, However, it will not stand up to a heavy chewer who shreds toys. The ears were the first to go and to prevent the small amount of stuffing in the head from escaping, the holes mended The rope followed. The rope, while better than most, was shredded into fibrous strings requiring us to dispose of the toy. Our enthusiastic rambunctious little wire Fox Terrier loved this to death in less than a month. I would recommend this toy for less enthusiastic chewers.
We've had this exact toy for a year know and are just now having to replace it. My dog is a cattle dog/pit bull mix so she's a pretty aggressive chewer and this toy stood up to her for a year!
KONG Floppy Knots Hippo Dog Toy. My aussie LOVES it!
We have had several of these Kong Floppy Knot toys, and our dogs just love them. They are great for the dogs to play tug with one another or with us. They lost a super long time even with one of our girls being destructive.
It was destroyed really quick. This is from the same afternoon Jackson was given the toy. The next day the remains were all over the house. Jackson is a year old vizsla and average size and biting dog.
