Having checked two Walmarts for these without any luck, I finally found a Mini Skineez at my local pet supply store. I bought the "racoon", and it was an instant hit....especially with Petie the Minpin. He LOVES this toy, kinda like I figured he might. Two thumbs up from me! :thumbs up :thumbs up

I picked some up for each of the dogs yesterday. They're a hit :thumbs up..

Lucky went completely insane thinking they were real :rolleyes:. The squeakers in them confirmed they were alive :laughing:. He grabbed one and went straight for his crate. He's not always possessive of his toys but this was certainly an exception.

Ava and Emma played tug with their two, soaking them in slobber.

Penny took hers outside and wanted to play fetch with it :rolleyes: (they're not so easy to throw any distance :D).

And all three adults tried to bury them :eek:. The Skinneeez will now remain indoor toys.

I love the fact they can't be 'gutted.' It's a great alternative to stuffies with this pack.

Lucky, Penny, Ava, and Emma all give :pawprint::pawprint::pawprint::pawprint::pawprint:

bea and maggie are not fans:sad: not enough stuffing i guess:rolleyes: oh well the cuz is still a big hit:D

Iggy neither WD, no stuffing no fun for him. Once he kills something then he has no interest in it.

ok, so i ofund these at one of the loacl stores, just wondering how storng and tough they are?

Sugar has 4 ,she continually squeaks the squeakers non stop. I have replaced squeakers twice. It's ok if your dog doesn't squeak them non stop. Friend got one for their Rottweilers they don't seem to squeak them like Sugar does and its held up pretty good. Even when Sugar has killed the squeaker she still plays with them.

I bought the skunk skinnees today and everyone had a piece of it in their mouths, there was the longest tug-of-war I've ever seen, hilarious. Joe finally got it away from the others and hid it in the tall grass or so he thought. We all came in the house and when they went out later Phoebe remembered exactly where he'd hidden it and the tug started all over again. Best toy I've purchased in a long time.

Are they durable enough to stand up to 8 dogs between 33 and 65 pounds? Possibly all of them at once? :o We're always looking for indestructible toys here...so far, black Kongs are the best. Cuzes have been banned :sad:...too easy to get pieces off them. :shrug:

I bought this for Riley on saturday afternoon. He LOVED it! But ... he had killed the squeekers within about 30 min and had destuffed the squeekers shortly after that :frustrated:. The toy itself actually lasted much longer than most, he played with it on Sunday and Monday and by last night there was too many big holes and pieces coming off so I took it away for good. He did enjoy it very much and it lasted much longer then most but definately would not hold up to eight dogs.

Hazel, I would recommend any of the orbeez-tuff by planet dog. They are kinda pricey but they are rated on a "chomp meter" and they are amazing. The dogs love them and they are easily as strong as kongs. Riley and Sam together are brutal on the toys but these have easily held up to anything they have done to them :thumbs up.

but there is one in planet dog it is call a tug, that is NOT strong..
I bought it for bree and within a day she managed to destroy the handle that you use for a tug toy.....the plastic part that you hold does NOT stand up to one dog
