Mdeho Pet Toys Rubber Throw Toy

I’m a sucker for things for our little girl. She’s getting on in years and we spoil her every chance we get. Even at 12 years old, some days she acts like a crazy puppy and she wants to do is play, play, play. So when a Pet Supply company offers us a “durable” toy for our girl, we’re thrilled to take it for a spin.

I’m happy to report that this one went over like gangbusters. Usually, a new toy is “the new hotness” for about two days until our dog decides it’s “old and busted” and won’t give it the time of day. Very few toys have what she considers “replayability”, but the Mdeho toy had it in spades. The only thing I’ll say that could be a negative is that our dog tends to like to grab the “human” end of the toy, which means when she runs away with it, the spike-ey ball sways to and fro, and usually ends up bopping her on the noggin, or worse, right in the face. And because they had to make the rubber a little hard to make sure it stands up to determined chewers, that also means it causes an ouchie when she gets bopped and fun time is officially over. What I would like is if Mdeho would make different “hardness” levels, ala Kong, so that there’s a super durable one for the chewers, and a softer one for the “throw-and-tug” crowd. The color is a bright blue, so it doesn’t end up blending with the grass and get missed by our dog, or by Hubby if it gets left outside. Because I suspect it would wreak havoc on his mower. The braided cord that attached handle to ball is strong and tough, but doesn’t separate to allow her teeth to get caught in it either. So far, there’s not been a single chunk, cut of gouge in the rubber, and no funk smell when it arrived either. I’m ecstatic that now, a few weeks later, our dog still plays with and enjoys this Mdeho Dog Toy, and that it’s still going strong with no sigh of it giving up the ghost any time soon.

Dog toys are a tough nut to crack. Too strong and the dog will hurt itself. Too weak and it will be destroyed, and the dog might hurt itself. Mdeho seems to have found that happy middle ground where durability meets playability. At $12.99, it seems to me a decent value, especially now that I know it’s made to last. Mdeho claims it “make engaging play-with-me sounds”, but this toy has never made a peep. Maybe something got lost in translation there. I’d still recommend it, though.

Pheenx Pets “Big Bone” Squeaker Toy for Dogs

284468-0e24ae2c80bb4603be2679f0ec7a9753

We’re dog people in this house, and some might say our pooch rules the roost. She took over the garage about 12 years ago and doesn’t seem to be willing to concede ownership back to us any time soon. She also in a connoisseur of dog toys, even now in her rip old age. If it’s sub-par, she’ll soon find a way to let us know, and it usually involves a pile of fluff in the middle of the floor. We were pleasantly surprised to find that this Pheenx Pets “Big Bone” Squeaky Toy met muster.

Made of durable plush fleece fabric, with a “honk” type squeaker instead of the piercing high-pitched type, and with a “tail” at the end made of braided rope, this toy checked off just about every metric required by our 55lbs of furry fury. After a long period of sniffing inspection, this Big Bone became her most favorite-est thing EVER for the next couple of weeks. The braided rope stood up to her tug-of-war games, and sailed quite nicely when thrown for fetch. When not in “people” use, the rope and squeaker could be heard in the garage getting the working over of a lifetime. In fact, it was one of the few toys deemed “worthy of bed”, while most toys in the bed get dropped out with a quickness.

While she’s not particularly rough on toys, the poor quality ones tend to get exposed quite quickly. This Pheenx Pets Big Bone Squeaker Toy held up well, was much beloved, and almost made us wish we’d saved it for Christmas for her, but it would make an absolutely awesome toy for those with more willpower than us. One look and the face when she saw it, and we knew it had to be hers immediately. At only $8.99 it’s a steal, and we’ve paid twice as much before for half the quality. You should probably pick up one for your furry friend too.
