My Dog Is A Toy Destroyer Challenge – Week Three

ryker-ruffwear-week3-4983This is the third and final week’s update on the Huckama™ by Ruffwear.  It’s been a thrilling three weeks and we thought that our hoard of hoodlums was going to do a number on this amazing toy but we were totally wrong!  Three weeks of abuse from Ryker with a handful of time by the rest of the hoard has proven insufficient on sending this toy to dog toy heaven and we can’t wait to go and get the Turnup™ and see how the crew likes this option as well.

As with the previous weeks, we were asked to send in a bit of information in regard to specifically asked questions (many of which were briefly touched on in previous weeks) and to add in any possible improvements to the toy and this is what we had to say:

Hard to believe it’s been three weeks already with the Huckama™. The ryker-ruffwear-week3-4952Huckama™ has held up exceedingly well for my toy destroying, brindle monster and I’m very, very pleased with it. We are actually going to be getting the Turnup™ to give around as well, and spoke with a few folks who were looking for sturdy toys while we were out shopping for dog food to head on over to Ruffwear.com for the Huckama™ or the Turnup™ for their toy destroyers too!

I don’t have enough time to be able to write down how much I absolutely adore this toy. It has been one of the sturdiest rubber toys we’ve had the chance to own and love. I can definitely see buying more in the future when they finally manage to kill this one (which will actually take quite some time for once!). The splits haven’t seemed to really progress any further but he’s been a little more gentle on it this week since it’s been so chilly out that he hasn’t been outside beating the orange off of it.

Durability is one of the biggest problems we’ve found with toys and we’ve tried just about everything on the market – but this toy has been a hit – not only with Ryker, but also with the rest of our hoard who he has politely shared it with on an occasion. So, along with being durable, it has had some major curb appeal even with our pickiest dogs.ryker-ruffwear-week3-4954

I really did try and find something I’d change, but other than having color choice options (it’s a girlie thing!), I’ve got nothing. This toy has the perfect shape and texture to it to be appealing and strong at the same time. The holes to stuff goodies into means I can turn this into not just a toss and go toy but also a working puzzle toy that isn’t too hard to figure out but provides entertainment none the less. It has been an absolute blast to have this toy in our house and I know Ryker will be looking forward to many more months (heck, maybe even years!) of abuse with it!

So there you have it, folks.  Three weeks of durability and product testing is done.  We have to say that this was one of the best contests we were lucky to have been selected for and would definitely recommend anyone who wants durable products to check out the good folks over at Ruffwear for just about anything they make.  An official review will be up in a few days as well so be sure to keep checking back in!
