This is to show you that sometimes, it is worth the $8 to buy the better dog toy. I rarely buy the pups toys from Petco because they’re so expensive, and I stay away from plush toys now as they end up de-stuffed in a matter of hours. But, I saw this fire hydrant toy (on left) at Petco and it said it was great for intense chewers, so I thought I’d give it a shot. That was two weeks ago. The one on the right came from Walmart, also marketed as a fire hydrant toy and it was only $4. The damage you see was done in one night. Obviously, it’s not made of the same material. I’d probably buy another Petco fire hydrant toy so the dogs think they have a stuffed one but can’t rip it up. Plus, Sadie likes to fetch it in the yard.
