After I ordered the S-S Stretch I realized that Tucker already had one which he plays tug with his Westie friends. He has had it for a while and has never destroyed it. I am saving the new one to give to one of his Westie friends during the holidays. I am so grateful for your company and the products you make in the USA. My Tucker got got very ill (an infection in his colon) after he played with a toy from China. All of your toys, beds, blankets and mats are the best ever. Thank You.

The S-S-Stretch was for our two Boxers. We bought the blue and rust colored (one for each) and our babies have not destroyed them yet, but they have tried. Very few toys have survived more than 1 day, but these are Boxer approved and tough, and they squeak! The biggest reason I bought them, they are made in the USA, not Chinese junk laced lead....Thank you for a great product made in the U.S.A.!

Ooops my last review was actually for the wacky worm I bought! Can we modify? The S-S-Strech is a great tug toy with a squeaker, this toy is still in one piece and my dogs play some serious tug games! I highly recommend this toy.

My dog, Walter, a 15 month-old pitbull, loved this toy -- for about 35 minutes.
The head was ripped off first, the squeak was no more, and the tail was shredded. OK, I was being unrealistic - I know Walter can destroy any dog toy known to mankind, but I live in hope that one day someone will create a squeaky toy that lasts.
Huck and Tux work well, but no squeak. Unfortunately, Walter is squeak obsessed.
Can't believe it passed the Lily test!

Our puppy Lily is almost one year old and she was going through toys faster than I could find them! She LOVES this snake. She squeaks it, tugs on it, throws it and sleeps with it. It's been several months and this is by far our longest-lasting toy ever. Thank you so much!
Cutter's # 1

We gave Cutter (6 yr old swiss mtn mutt) S-S-Stretch for Christmas this past year. He LOVES it. We play tug-of-war almost daily, and S-S-Stretch still squeaks and is still perfectly intact. I didn't think it was possible to find a toy that was made in America by a great company, that he would love so much, and that would withstand so much vigorous play. "Snake" is Cutter's best Christmas gift ever! Thanks!

This is my one Jack Russells favorite toy. It has got to be 7-8 years old and while the squeaker is long gone and it is chewed up and frayed, Butch will cuddle up with his "snakey" every night. His brother Boots tries to steal it from him but we don't allow that. Thank you for making such a great toy!
The first one lasted a while...

Our little toy rat terrier can destroy just about any toy in record breaking time. If you hand him a Loofa dog you might as well just toss him some cash to eat instead, it will last about as long. He loves to tug with his 30lb older 'brother,' and since this snake didn't have much stuffing we decided to give it a try. The first one lasted several weeks, which is unheard of with most toys like this. Only two fabric toys have survived longer, and beileve me... we have been through LOTS of toys. The dogs had a lot of fun, but eventually the little rat did succeed it ripping open a seem at the "neck" of the snake. It of course it didn't take long before he happily succeeded in creating a pile of fluff. I must say the fabric held up quite while, relatively at least. We bought a second snake, hoping it might last as long as the first. Sadly, the second snake didn't last long at all. The first snake has white and black markings, the second was the black and gold spotted print. I don't know if there was any difference in the fabrics, or if he had just learned the weak points of the toy. I would recommend buying this one for tug-loving dogs, but once it is destroyed it might not be worth replacing depending on your dog's skills in toy destruction.

After destroying (quickly) every chew toy she ever had my Malinois Molly and I discovered "Li'l Stretch". Upon seeing it was "Made in America" and having become increasingly upset having to buy items made in a certain Asian country we decided to keep our money in the U.S.A. The price was more than the others but believe me this toy lasts! It is over a year old and other than being a little dirty it is as good as new. You get what you pay for. If it ever wears out we will definitely purchase another. Thank you!

I bought L'il Stretch and Wacky Worm for my year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. These were bought for tugging and retrieving, not as chew toys. L'il Stretch lasted about 5 minutes before the stuffing started coming out of the tail end. Because of this I took away the Wacky Worm, and although we tried to repair L'il Stretch by sewing it up, it comes apart. She is an aggressive chewer and she is good with her Hurley, but the plush toys don't last more than a few minutes before she goes through them between retrieves!
