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.
My dog is a sweet little Boston Terrier, cute as a button, calm in demeanor, except when he sees another animal. He then becomes Mr. Hyde and goes for the kill, right to the throat. His greatest joy, since I keep him away from other animals, is the destruction of squeaky toys. He can demolish ANY toy, no matter how durable it's supposed to be, within minutes. When a package arrives at the house, he is hot on its trail, waiting expectantly while I open it, hoping it's a squeaky toy for him. Now, these toys are not cheap at $10 + for a few moments of doggie bliss.
Here is a solution, although not perfect. I bought these heavy duty squeakers and a dozen cheap athletic socks, for about the price of three toys at $10 ea. I roll up a squeaker in one of the socks; if I have some brown paper or cellophane I add that around the squeaker as well, and place it in the other sock in the middle and tie a knot on either side of the squeaker.
He loves these no less than the complete toys with fur and faces. I save some money and he's just as happy.
Our squeaker-addicted 2-year old Labrador was thrilled when I repaired his favorite but now mute toys with these heavy duty wonders!
Be sure you read the description as these are very large. The toys they wouldn't fit in had to be retired but I made new ones by stuffing a couple of squeakers inside gloves and sewing them up. No failures as yet. The best part? The squeak is a tone that doesn't make your ears bleed or want to ground your pet from their favorite toys.
As with some of the other reviewers, 3 of the squeakers in my order shipped without the cap that allows them to make noise. I wrote a quick e-mail to the company and they offered to give me a partial refund or replace the defective items. Since Samson loves them so much, we took replacements. In just a few days, I received 5 replacements! Now that is great customer service. If you have a big dog who loves squeaky toys, you should give these from Pet Supply City a try.
I used these squeakers to replace several non-functional ones in my dogs' toys. Nothing is indestructible when subjected to my dogs teeth and tug sessions, but these are the best I've found. They continue to squeak even with some damage. Sometimes the reed or squeaker comes out of the unit, but that can be put back in and the toy resewn. I resew the toys with dental floss...don't know if that works better than normal thread, but it seems to keep the toy together quite well. These definitely outlast another brand I tried.
