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.
These are expensive sqeakers and when they arrived I was really impressed as they are very large and seemed very sturdy. So I spent on afternoon replacing the sqeakers in the dog's toys...the plush toys which cost a lot to buy. Even though they were supposed to squeak when punctured my weimaraner managed to destroy the whole lot...six toys..in under two hours and none of them now squeak. She realised that the head of the squeaker is weak so went at them that way. Do not waste your money buying these they are just not worth it.
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.
I have a little 13# doxy. She has always been a terror with squeaky toys. She loves them to death ! In other words until she kills the squeaky! Paying $13.00 + for each toy was not an option, SO, I bought these replacement squeak's. They were a bit bigger then I thought, but I use them anyway. I did find it better to make a "pocket" out of old jean material first, then slid it into the toy you are repairing or make a completely new toy out of the same old jean material ! The "pocket" made the toy harder for her to get her sharp little teeth into the squeaky to destroy it !! I also put a "drop" of Elmer's Glue around the squeak its self. It comes out very easy, and stuck it back in where it goes. Let it dry and then put it in the pocket.
