If I rated this solely on how much my dog, Yeti (50lb heinz 57), loved it, it would easily be a 10/5 stars. It was his new favorite thing in the world! Unfortunately, he is a very aggressive chewer, and he quickly discovered that if he picked at the end of the toy, he could separate where the layers were glued together. He immediately did just that, so then it no longer squeaked (the inner chamber was no longer sealed). He then slowly began to take the "plug" of rubber that had sealed the end out in chunks, so we had to take it away before he tried eating them. So if your dog doesn't have the perseverance or determination of...well, a dog with a bone I guess, who won't single-mindedly chew at the end, but instead is content chewing laterally on the toy, I would not recommend this for aggressive chewers.
Elly is a 20 pound, 3 year old Terrier. She loves the Kong Squeezz Stick. She like the sound it makes, the size is perfect, and she likes the way it bounces. The one drawback is that Elly likes to chew and this is not a good chew toy (it actually warns this on the label). When Elly chews on it, the plastic breaks into little chunks that she sometimes swallows. So even though she loves this toy, it is not a good match for her.
These are my dogs absolute favorite toy. He goes nowhere and does nothing without his stick, even going potty. It holds up well to his chewing and he likes to throw it around and bend it when he's playing. Each stick lasts several months before it eventually wears out and we get a new one. A great toy for our boy Bowie.
My dogs love these, both the squeaky and the crackly versions. No, they are not chew toys. But if your dogs like to play fetch, or run around with something safe in their mouths, these are awesome. Originally purchased to keep the dogs from stealing small logs from the wood pile, worked like a charm! They last for several months and stand up to hours of daily play. If your dog's mail goal is to destroy things, then yes, they will be able to destroy these. If your dogs are normal/rough players, they will work well.
I have a foster dog that has a special ability to destroy any toy- even ones made for much bigger, stronger dogs. She loves playing tug and fetch with this one, carries it around and taunts my other dog with it, but does not chew it. It even squeaks and she has not been able to destroy the squeaker. I would imagine if she did chew it, it wouldn't last long, though.
My pit destroyed it in less than 5min. I thought I was safe buying the kong brand but she had other plans.
The product is well made, but my dog doesn't want to play with it. It is semi-hard and I thought she would enjoy it, but she has been choosing either hard chewy bones, or soft furry stuffed animals. So I'm rating it according to my dog!!!!!
Our Boxer loves this toy. He carries it around with great pride and then lays down for a long chew session. Very durable.
My pup is a strong chewer. He has already had surgery to remove a piece of Kong. This Kong has little knobs on it that they can shoot off and I can get stuck in their throat and intestines.
My pup got into this one rather quickly. Other kong toys he has for awhile but this one was only a few or two. Great for fetch though!
