I have Boston Terriers that can tear up any chew toy out there. So I thought I would give the large dumbbell a try, and they love it! I figured they would just lay and chew on it but they carry it around like it's no problem. I would recommend this toy or any dog that is passionate about chewing or playing fetch! It definitely is a 10 + in my book. I will be ordering more of these for my gang.
I have gone through so many toys with my dog. The only one that has lasted. I got the XL for my 50lb dog because it's hard for her to fully get her teeth in it so she can't destroy it as quickly. She not only loves to chew on it and throw it around, but also loves to carry it around and use it as a pillow. She still hasn't destroyed it.
Our lab is a destructive chewer and had already gnawed right through several toys when Chopper & Otis was recommended to us. The Big Dawg Dumbbell (extra large size) was the first toy we bought, and he was an immediate fan. It is quite heavy, but the rubber bounces multiple times, even when tossed gently. He enjoys playing fetch and tug of war with it in addition to gnawing and pawing at it. It is easy to clean and its surface is appealingly smooth. Definitely recommend for power chewers.
Our pit mix absolutely loves this toy. Once she got it, her day was spent outside enjoying it for hours.
