.....as long as it squeaks, it's alive.

I agree with this but this is definitely not something the dog whisperer came up with! Every time my dog squeaks a toy my husband says "remember when they caught that rabbit at the same time?....." Squeak toys imitate prey.

Nala loves her 6 foot long squeak snake. It is divided into 6 inch sections all with separate squeaks. I think it is hysterical watching her play with it.

All the Hooligans have always LOVED squeak toys ... the more obnoxious and loud the squeak the better they like them!!!

Here is a strange thing; my Lacy goes bonkers for any type of toy that makes noise. His favorite is the Kong squeaker tennis ball (he likes to bat it around like a cat).

But, we have a monkey toy that you sling, when it hits the ground it makes a monkey tarzan type sound. This drives him totally nuts. He will not touch it, until it stops the tarzan yell. He runs in a circle around it, a million miles an hour. The moment it's quiet he snatches it up and brings it back for more. I just found out his brother (different litter) does the exact same thing with the exact same toy!

Makes me wonder if he ever does give chase to something wild (rabbit etc.) and they make a noise, will it stop the drive but will he toy with it like a cat. I hope I never find out!

Apollo is OBSESSED with squeak toys!
This is a new thing for me, because my past dogs (a Rough Collie, a Papillion and a mutt) never really cared for them, but Apollo goes nuts! He's perfectly content holding a squeak toy in his mouth and squeaking it all day long!

Lilie - last weekend when we took Joey for his walks, my husband had the squeak in his pocket. Joey started to take off after a squirrel, my husband squeaked, and Joey's focus came right off the squirrel and onto my husband!

I don't know anything about the appeal I'm sure other folks know about that, but I know one thing: After 10pm the squeaking toys go in the bin!
