"Great!! One squeakersstill works..." - By ProBenzo
It's hard to find toys that very large dogs will not just tear apart and ruin the squeakers rather quickly. After tons of play one squeaker still works and the other one not so much (it comes with 2). But I'm sure it will just be a cute play toy after a couple days, or a week until the other one goes out. Good overall though and it stretches for extra fun play!
Usually my dog either doesn't play with a toy at all or else it gets destroyed, there is no middle ground. I was surprised by this toy because he will actually play with it. As others have said, the 'S' shape makes it easy for them to lay on their back and hold it to chew on. Also it's very good for playing tug because the rubber seems to take away some of the shock from when he pulls. It is easier to play tug with than a rope. It is his only remaining Christmas present.
I should mention, when he first got it we didn't allow him to chew it, only play tug or fetch.
We travel on a 42' motor home with a 90 lb German Shepard. On long travel days and overnighting in RV parks it's hard to get in enough exercise since she has to be on a leash at all times. This ball is a lifesaver. It is soft enough we can play with it in the RV. I throw it against the walls with no fear of damage and it bounces all over the place with dog in chase mode. It is hilarious. The dog gets a little exercise and I get a laugh watching her. She catches it, drops it so it will bounce, catches it again and chews it. We have used it on several trips and it seems to be holding up well. Whoever brought this to the market for dogs is genius.
"Long Lasting" - By Emily (Wilmington, DE United States)
As I've come to expect from Kong products, this little moose has held up remarkably well. I have a beagle/jack russel terrier mix, and at least once a day is puts this little guy through the ringer. We've even played a light game of tug of war on a few occasions. It's her favorite!
I'm training my 12 week old Belgian Malinois as a Search & Rescue Cadaver (Human Remains) Dog. This toy has peaked her drive in a way that no other toy - even those on ropes - has. Kong is sturdy, quality toy for dogs that have a strong need to chew. As she grows I will get larger rope toys, but for now, it's PERFECT!
I have two miniature wiener dogs and they had the stuffing out in the first hour of chewing. That's the only reason I gave four stars, but the outer shell has lasted and they still drag them around the house. I have only found one toy that they never tore apart and the company no longer produces them so this was the next comparable item. Overall I would say it still a good toy!
"Another awesome toy by West Paw Design" - By alienmurphy
We got this for a small 19 pound chewer. We got the West Paw Design large Hurley bone at the same time. You can put a treat inside the ball and then push one end of the Hurley bone into the open side of the ball. It took the dog a couple of hours the first time to get the two apart so he could get the treat. The second time 30 minutes and the next time immediately. That's OK. This has a great bounce and you never know which direction it will bounce in. This keeps the dog on his toes. We have prior experience with toys from this company and always return for more. They make long lasting toys that are reasonably priced.
I see the word "KONG" on a dog toy and immediately want to associate it with "indestructible". I've learned in the short time I've had my dog that this is not always the case. However, I was impressed that it took about 3 hours before my dog figured out she could start to chew off the yellow material. I do wish it were somehow possible to have a similar material that was not easily chewed off. I have an American Staffy mix and so far buying a variety of toys has prevented most of her destructible chewing. I think the balls are actually pretty great, I bought a large size knowing her mouth would be able to grab it but it would not be a leisurely chew for her. I also buy things knowing she'll chew the crud out of them; better $5.00 toys over my carpet, wood floors, ... full review
My dog is not big on toys. She's extremely food-motivated, so Kong and Squirrel Dude have been her favorites--up to now. The bone shape is perfect for her to carry around and hold on with her paws while she's chewing. The goodie openings are smaller than I expected. I've found the Eukanuba Healthy Extra treats for puppies are a perfect fit. You can fit one in each opening for a challenge, or fit two in each opening so a little sticks out on each end. She will actually hold the bone in her mouth and toss it up in the air, in the hopes that a biscuit will break and fall out. The Goodie Bone keeps her occupied for a long time--hooray!
