This is the second one of these toys. The first just had 2 squeakers. That toy is still played with but the squeakers don't squeak anymore. I had to sew up one of the seams, but this is one of his toys we first bought for him 2 yrs ago. The current snake he's had since Christmas 2022. All the squeakers still squeak. This is his to go to toy in the am. It's a little long for him, the two squeak snake would have been better, but he's happy which make me happier.
I'll start off by saying my Rottie absolutely loves it. That is where the positive review ends. While the toy feels very strong and durable within a short amount of time my dog began tearing up the tail. It's not going to take long for your dog to figure out the areas to chew to rip apart the sewing.
I have bought the invincibles squeaky dog toy in the past and finally had to retire it after 9 years. The new one is just as hardy and fun as the last one. The best part of the bigger version is it puts distance between you and the dog's mouth since they love to leap for it. I highly recommend this toy.
My dog is a super chewer. Black Kongs don’t stand a chance. This is the only squeaky toy that has lasted longer than a day. She has ripped the black trim off around the outside but the snake still squeaks and she hasn’t gotten into the part where the squeakers are held.
My small Cavalier King Charles is 11 months old. 20 lbs. I’m setting the scene for you. He loves soft toys and is brilliant at locating the weakest point and working it until destruction. Accepting this fact, I know I’ll be buying a new toy every couple weeks. I had hope for this one, but while seemingly durable, there was an overlap in the canvas stitching he found and exploited immediately. I took it from him before he could get much further and plan to stitch up that part in hopes he will get a few more minutes of enjoyment from it. I can’t find my sewing kit. So it sits on the counter for now. Along with the other invincible canvas toys for heavy chewers that I will one day patch up. This was a fail for us, but we will persist!
I had purchased the 6 squeaker size, which was recevied about 1 - 1.5 hours ago. I was hoping this would last longer, a lot longer, but don't waste your money. The company, Outward Hound, claims the following: It's durable and reinforced for superior chew resistance and the squeakers are made to keep squeaking, even if punctured. In the UNLIKELY event that your dog does get through the fabric, there's no stuffing. All of these claims are false. If it was durable, I don't think super chewers would get through it so quickly if it has superior chew resistance, the squeakers have been punctured and DO NOT work, and my dog DID get through the fabric.
Shadow (GSD mix) has been obsessed with this toy for a year. He brings it around with him everywhere. It is just now showing signs of wear after many games of tug of war, tossing, and gingerly chewing. I would love to see his reaction to the 70 in version. For now though I have tucked away a second medium sized one so he will always have his favorite toy. I love that it has the plush feel while being very heavy duty with a canvass type fabric lining the seams and a thick poly material on the body.
My Rott loves squeaky toys. I got the 3-squeak and it’s a good size for her. It’s holding up well. I will definitely repurchase this one when it does inevitably squeak its last.
We go through about 1 of these per year, which is less often than most of the favorite toys. The doberman squeaks it and then sings the song of her people. She loves it the most.
I ordered the 3 squeaker first and then, because it made it through the first month, I ordered the 6 squeaker. Neither of them made it through the next month. The squeakers were removed one by one and, once my shepherd realized the balck side stitching went the length of the snake, it became like a zipper to her. When I took away the squeaker she just ripped the side stitching down to the next one. Also, those squeaker are the perfect size to block a dog's throat when loose so she had to be supervised when playing with this toy. My hound loved it, didn't tear it up and was sad when it was gone. So the dogs love it, but a big chewer will have it destroyed fairly quickly.
