To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
We have a Jack Russell who loves squeakers so I bought a bag of 20 of these Extra X large heavy duty squeakers because I thought they would last longer than the round ones. The verdict is on: they will squeak with a 3- 4 bite holes but he has them demolished and rendered trash in the same amount of time as the round squeakers. The pin falls out easily and once it is bent up and the hole stretched out there is no way to salvage the squeaker. For what these oblong squeakers costs they are certainly not worth the money - do not and will not recommend these squeakers. And yes, I did sew them into some of his old toys and he still has them rendered dead in 10 minutes. Given to him just naked they are completely dead in 2 minutes.
Had high hopes for these squeakers. We put them into leather toys for our mini dachshund and he had a blast squeaking them. Unfortunately, 3 of the 7 squeakers we used stopped squeaking within 2 days, even though they hadn't been punctured at all. These things are priced WAY too high to go through so many, so quickly. Won't be buying these again.
These are a good size, and my dogs, a Beagle, does love them, but he has the squeaker out in less than a minute. I have bought others that use a natural design instead of a plug-in squeaker. They eventually stop working too, but usually in a few weeks, not in a minute or less.
I don't know about these being "heavy duty." They seem to get destroyed just as quickly as the smaller squeakers (about 2-3 minutes). I like putting them into the dog toys I make for my pup because they have a different sound than others, but as soon as he manages to get them out, they're punctured and dead. I try to catch him once he's opened up a toy and patch it real quick, but I can't always and then there goes the (relatively expensive) squeaker. I've preferred getting the teeny squeakers to give to him as a special treat because they're so much less expensive and they stick around for about the same amount of time.
I'm returning these. The box arrived in great shape, but one came with no squeaker, two were split at the top and the squeaker fell out immediately, and others had loose squeakers. Had some slightly smaller ones previously that lasted for years, but unfortunately, I couldn't find them on Amazon this time.
I ordered these to replace the squeakers in our dogs toys as they removed them so I wasn't constantly buying new toys for them to have the squeakers. I just sew the toys back up with a new squeaker in them. However, these were SUPPOSED to be HEAVY DUTY. NOT!!! They destroy them in seconds. Yes you get 20 of them for a very reasonable price or so I thought but they are not heavy duty at all.
I read all the reviews and that is why I bought this product. After opening the box I pulled out the squeakers gave one to my Maltese and within 1 minute he had pulled out the PLUG that makes the toy squeak. Not very impressed with this at all. While I was able to place the plug back into place my dog continues to pull the plug out and I am afraid my dog will choke on the long plug....I will place a piece of fabric around the squeakers and maybe this is the purpose of this item. So I will do this and hope it works if my dog can get to the plug thru the fabric then I am out the cost of this item including S&H.........Either I have a very Smart dog or this product is useless
