My friend Archie runs a doggie spa boutique where we live here in London. I don’t know if you’ve ever met him, but he’s kind of a little guy – you can see him here where we celebrated his birthday last year. I asked him if he couldn’t order some bigger, tougher toys for dogs like me who like to shake my toys around for a while before burying my teeth into them. He looked at me, smiled and said.
‘Alfie, I have just the job for you. I have just got this new batch of Tuffy toys and was wondering if you could test them for me and let me know what you think.’
‘Rooooo – can I test them? Boy will I test them for you!’ I replied and wagged my tail.
Then I set about testing the toy properly for a couple of days. So far the Octopus has survived tug-o-wars, shaking, chewing and being slammed in the muddy ground and still those big eyes are starring at me asking for more. I think that means top marks for both the fun factor as well as durability!
Then I thought, why don’t I get my human to write some more reviews about all the hundreds of toys we’ve tested since I moved in with them as a puppy? After all, we are kind of experts now when it comes to knowing what toys will break after five minutes and which ones are more durable. Said and done, we went through our photo archives and wrote this article about tried and tested durable dog toys together. Hope you find it useful!
