This was a great toy that my 11 mo beagle loved...while it lasted.
This plush toy is a "stuffed" animal that has an empty water bottle inside instead of stuffing. It has a velcro flap that opens at the bottom so you can easily replace the bottle when it's worn out. The bottle gives a fun crunching sound and the material makes the bottle last longer and keeps it from exposing sharp edges that can cut my puppy's mouth.
I used to give my pup empty water bottles to play with until he started tearing thru them too fast. I bought this in the hopes that he could have fun crunching them again without the danger of ripping the bottle up.
Early on I noticed that he popped the seam on one of the bottom feet. Luckily, there's no stuffing in the feet and they aren't connected to any main seam on the body, so I cut off the feet without any real harm to the toy.
Worked great for the first few weeks, then I left it out, unsupervised, and it got shredded. The material was just too thin to withstand long-term usage.
I've since found a bottle cover made by Purina that looks kind of like firehose material. It's lasted much better/longer.
If you plan to let your dog use this toy in small doses and are good about picking up their toys immediately after use, then you could get some good mileage out of this.
