Every toy with a squeekie is meant to be either torn open or meticulously opened by unthreading it and removing the noise maker. Do other people's dogs remove these things too?

YES!! I am scared to see how much money I have spent on these kinds of toys. I thought the CUZ was the answer. He finally got the squeaky out of this as well. But he has a high prey drive and hates little yapping squeaky sounding dogs.

Am I doing wrong to give him this sort of TOY?

Re: Does your dog pull the squeekies out of toys??

Sheba is so gentle with her toys that they can last for a very long time. All of her balls are a couple of years old, squeekers are still intact. She has a bully stick that she has carried around the house for about a month, but has yet to put her teeth into. She would rather bury it in furniture than chew on it. Even on the rare occasion that she gets a soft toy with a squeeker, its easily good for a month before she might tear into it.

Coke routinely performs stufficides complete with squeakerectomies. He always seems so pleased with himself. I don't understand, the hedgehog has always been his best friend, until...

LOL around Halloween my sister and her kids bought Rocky a stuffed squeeky ghost for his birthday. The toy lasted approximately 2 seconds before there was white stuff coming out of it.

He has no problems tearing up the stuffed animals.

I wish Elmo knew how to take out the squeekies from his toys. They drive me nuts. I don't have the hearts to resolve the situation myself.

DaKota too. LOL I replace her Duckie about every 3 months or so.
Mom's Dog Rusty is terrible for this. I honestly don't mind one or 2 being chewed, but not all one after another!
My sister always puts my girls squeakies up when she comes over.
Her Bully loves squeakies! Sister doesn't want her pup to tear any toys up at all. Like I said 1 or 2 are fine at least I know the dogs had a great time with them.

The eldest "operated" to remove squeekies. The funniest was when I picked up a "talking" animal, maybe a cow? She systematically removed the squeeky but the squeeky bit! (It had a battery) Oh the look on her face!

BTW you can purchase replacement squeekies. I've done a lot of squeeky transplants....

Squeeky transplants? LOL Oh no if it dies it is dead until the toy has to be replaced. Some of the toys he has had for 2 years and now the squeekys just sound really really sick

If its a stuffed animal with a squeaky (or without) it will be destroyed in seconds, lol. When my youngest daughter leaves her room open, Chloe will sometimes go in there and grab an animal. I will find it with stuffing gone, eyeballs, nose etc off, and if it has a squeaker, its out too.

She's good with her Cuz. She just loves to squeak it all the time.

Her tugs don't last but a day before they are shredded up or useless.

My gsd was very good with her stuffed toys until her little "sister", Lucy the lab, taught her what fun it was to tear the stuffing and squeakers out of toys. Lucy and toys had to be monitored. Then I found toys by Dr. Noyes. They are the toughest toys ever and come in different sizes. They do not have stuffing and sometimes come with extra squeakers. They have velcro openings for the squeaker that are Lucy proof. The girls each weigh 100 pounds and play tug with these toys, not even a tiny tear, ever. I take the squeaker out and throw them in the washer. I have bought these toys online and from ebay. They are not too costly, it's worth giving one a try for your problem child.

I love the term 'squeakerectomies':) Sable has been carrying around a pig ear all week; she asked for one the other day, she will ignore these most of the time. In a week it has a little chewed off the edges. But squeakerectomies must be done and she never chews up toys in the house. She undid the stiching in the last toy without tearing the fabric or pulling out the stuffing; it was amazing.

Funny someone mentioned duckies...the longest lasting toy we have was one of the kids floating bathtub duckies. It was made of a pretty strong but soft plastic and has no squeaker.
