Available Toys- click to purchase

Pros:
  • Very durable construction, heavy duty stitching around length of toy

  • Mesh fabric on main body, teeth do not seem to penetrate it

  • Pre-determined “Tuffness” scale for easy product identification/expectation

  • Toy is tested on TIGERS!

  • Squeakers safe in a “squeaker pocket”

  • Dog seems to enjoy playing fetch with toy

  • Dog enjoys playing tug of war with toy

  • Company offers a range of toys for small to large dogs

  • Colorful, fun designs

  • Floats in water, machine washable

  • Plush, soft on guns and no sharp edges or plastic

  • 15 days in, no stuffing removed, toy not breached

  • 25 days in, no stuffing removed, toy not breached, stitching becoming frayed. Testing over.

Cons:
  • Dog working on “stitching joint” and was able to loosen stitching after 5 days

  • Loud squeakers

  • Higher cost than Pet Smart plush toys (average $20, large toys $30 or $40)

  • Some toys have hard to squeak squeakers, since they are padded

  • Animal shaped toys have ears, tusks, eyes, etc...places of focus of the dog. This must be the reason that they are ranked 8 on the scale. Avoid animal toys if you have a truly destructive dog.
