Clearly this is for a puppy or smaller teething dog. Bought it for my malamute because he has an abscess tooth and likes to chew my furniture. I give it to him at night when I put him to bed. It’s definitely sturdy and he loves carrying it around the house even when it’s not cold. My only complaint is how small the freeze pockets are. If not for that I’d give it five stars.
My Cairn Terrier puppy is teething, and she was chewing on everything. This teether is the best. I keep it in the freezer overnight, and she actually sits in front of the refrigerator each morning to get it!
I bought this for a 10 week old large breed rescue pup that I was fostering. It was much harder than I expected so she had no interest in it. While not ideal for the little pups I like the concept of it being like a teething ring for babies. Probably would be best for pups that are older.
Even though some of the prev reviews warned that the area for actually freeing water in it is minimal, the bone itself is still proving to be a good toy for my pup. We haven't actually tried putting it in the freezer yet since our dog took to it right away but I'll be curious to see how it goes once we do.
We fill the holes with cheese or peanut butter then leave it in the freezer. Great to leave with our puppy when we’re crate training!!
Our 2 lab puppies love this toy without the chill. So far, they haven't destroyed it.
My dog absolutely LOVES his Chill & Chew! On a hot day, he is at it until all the treats are out and then continues to lick at the ice cold toy. We just use little pieces of soft treats and add the water. It keeps him calm and cool!
Both my pups enjoy this treat. I fill it with cheese spread or peanut butter and it provides a great relaxing distraction.
I have a puppy who's teething and has been chewing everything, I thought this would help. I initially thought that you put the water into the bone to freeze, similar to a baby teething toy. They have these little holes on the back of the bone where you can fill it with water and freeze it, but the ice falls out almost immediately when the puppy is chewing on it, only keeping it cold for a few seconds. My puppy doesn't touch this at all.
My pup loves to chew and most chew toys maybe will last a day. But we are going to over a month and she loves this toy. She hasn't torn it up. She plays with it and she sleeps with it. I recommend this toy highly.
