    DefaultDog toys and Suckyballs

    I have a list of toys here that I was considering purchasing but was wondering if anyone on JL has tried them.

    Chuckit! Bumpers
    Chuckit! Rubber Balls
    Petmate Dogzilla Arctic Freeze
    Tuffy Toys or Mighty Toys
    Kuranda dog beds
    Cuz (hol-ee and regular one)
    Kong Wubba Friends
    Toyshoppe Squeaky Rope Toy (Petsmart)
    Kong Aqua
    West Paw Design (all zogoflex toys)

    Could you rate from a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the most durable and longest lasting, the toys that you have used?

    I have read a few old threads about a suckyball (I understand that labby started that name). What are their real names and where do you get them? I have tried Petco but couldn't find them anywhere. Are they just not sold anymore?

    I wanted to purchase her a toy that you can soak or fill up with water (like the Fat Cat Freeze n Chew or Dogzilla Arctic Freeze)and freeze, does anyone know of any other products similar to those?

    Thank you in advance!

    Kongs are about the only thing my dogs do not routinely destroy (but Thumper (Kodi and Hoss' sister) destroys even the black ones).

    Busy Buddy toys work pretty well for us (stuffed with treats), but must be supervised

    Chuck It's are a must but skip their balls and use tennis balls.

    I think the term "sucky ball" can apply to any favorite ball. Kassabella's siggy picture is a perfect example!!

    Sophie loves this dogzilla toy. She's had it over 2 months and it hasn't been destroyed! It has a squeeky ball in it, and she loves to run through the house squeeking it! Its also a water toy and floats!

    Dio LOVES the Chuck It balls. He'll chose that over any ball. I think that it's because they squish in his mouth and bounce real high. I also love that they are bright orange, so easy to see in the grass. He's favorite stuffie right now is the Kong Cozie. He's had it for 3 weeks and it's still good! Just don't tug with it...

    Not a toy, but Bean eats his meals from a Kong Wobbler.
    Loves his Kong frisbee.
    Buy dog tennis balls; regular ones wear down teeth.
    We have a BouncyBone Bouncy Bone Product Description - Premier Pet- you're supposed to replace chewhide circles (Bean loves them), but they're $$. We improvise and the rubber ball is awesome for fetch. Good weight, and also makes a whistling noise when you throw it. I also stick goodies in the holes of the ball. Lotsa bang for the buck with this toy.

    I recently played with a Zogoflex when someone brought one to the dogpark and it seemed really good. Koviu and another lab had a couple serious tug sessions and the toy was none the worse for wear. They sell them at the training facility/day care I take him to and I'm thinking of picking one up.
    I've had good luck with the cuz and similar toys as well. We use them outside as fetch toys - Koivu's not much of a fetch dog, but he likes those toys. We've played tug with those as well and no problem. The squeaker goes eventually, but they can take a beating.

    I want to thank everyone for their replies. I am also really wondering about this toy Amazon - Kyjen Egg Babies.

    BTW, I had another thread and did purchase a Kong Extreme. I am happy with it and she hasn't put a tooth mark in it. But it is Dixie's last toy and she looses interest in it when it doesn't have a treat (with the new Kong Ziggies, they are extremely difficult to put in, not to mention get out, so she chews off the exposed end and gives up).

    For those of you recommending Nylabones, could you let me know what style? I did get her one but she chewed through it (it was made of hard plastic).
