After my boy outgrew the small version of this (still intact and he still plays with it sometimes - he's a lover not a destroyer :)) I bought him the large which was more appropriate to his size. Unfortunately within minutes of me giving him the toy, part of it had come loose and there was thread everywhere. I removed the toy and contacted VetUK whose customer service was brilliant. I sent a picture of the damaged toy and they agreed to send a replacement. I can only conclude the fault in the original was a manufacturing defect as the replacement has lasted a few months now and is still going strong. A great toy for indoor, supervised play.
My Greyhound and Whippet love this toy. They play tug-of-war and chase with it. The octopus legs mean they can toss it around as well. I like that it doesn't have a squeak. It has survived many trips into the garden, although it's not as robust as some toys.
A great puppy toy, my german shepherd loves to play with this toy and snuggle up in bed with this toy.
