The info with the toy indicated it could withstand rough play. It can’t. It’s very cute though if your dog is gentle.
This is the only squeaking toy I've found to date that my bully boy can not find and destroy every speaker within a few hours. The squeaker in this toy stands up to him for at least a few weeks.
My dog loves this duck. Usually he can rip a toy up in a day, but this one takes a year before the face is gone, so I buy him a new one every year for his birthday.
It is difficult to find a toy or toy company that provides large, durable and safe toy options I still believe in supervised play with Rottweilers... we love these enough to have 2 on each floor of the house. This is grander than the purple elephant and the orange bull.
Although rated a 9 on the toughness scale, my dog had this duck apart in minutes and the squeakers out of the balls in less than twenty minutes. He loves to de-stuff but given the reputation and rating, I was hoping for more than a few minutes. Unfortunately, I've had to take away the remaining ducky because the duck is a bunch of individual strands (which I thought would be cool for him to chew on) and they are everywhere. And I mean everywhere....on the carpet, sofa, bed.....it's like the duck sheds. Save your money.
My puppy has destroyed many, MANY toys but has yet to make a tear in this!! Each of the arms and body have squeakers in it, which keeps her interested. I also like that there is very little stuffing in it, if any, so just in case she does tear into it, I don’t have to worry as much about her eating any of that!!! It’s also soft enough that she loves to cuddle with it and use it as a pillow. Overall, we love this toy!!
