It’s no secret my hounds are spoiled. An abundance of toys is one of the ways it happens. Their toy box is overflowing at times. Then they decide to whittle down the collection with a little destruction. There is always a reason to get new ones. When I was given the opportunity to review the Spot® ZooYoos™ dog toy, I could not pass it up. I was all in and so were my hounds.
Why did I want to review the ZooYoos dog toy?
Luke loves squeaky toys. So much so, he’ll just sit and squeak them until they won’t squeak anymore. I was intrigued when I read the ZooYoos is supposed to keep squeaking if it has been punctured. Could that be true? Keep reading to find out.
I looked over the ZooYoos when it arrived. It’s a good size and seemed sturdy in construction. I’d prefer it not to have the fuzzy hair on it. Why? Because my hounds love to rip fuzzy stuff off any toy. It’s one of their methods of destruction. However, it’s a small patch so perhaps they would leave the fuzz alone.
Did my hounds like the ZooYoos dog toy?
Luke and Milo loved it! They were good boys and sat nicely for a photo before I took it off the packaging. I’m pretty sure they knew a new toy was coming their way.
Lots of ZooYoos dog toy fun happened outside. Milo and Luke love it when I throw a toy for them to fetch. Then they’ll play together with it. This is one of the ways I can tell if a toy will hold up. They can pull on it with a lot of force and some will tear apart. The ZooYoos held up nicely.
Here are some photos of them playing with the toy:

The next step to see if a toy will last is to give it to my hounds inside the house. They’ll take it to another room and play with it. Well, more like “let’s see how we can destroy this when mommy isn’t looking”. I’ll hear squeaking then it gets quiet. That’s when I know a toy has met its doom. Either the stuffing and/or the squeaker has been removed or the squeaker is broken.
Luke carried the ZooYoos toy to the bedroom. I could hear him squeaking it like crazy. I went in and took video of it. I also got video of him sharing the toy with Milo. Then I came back to the den and waited. A short while later I heard different noises. I knew something was up. Yep, sure enough. Luke had chewed a hold in the fabric and was trying to get to the stuffing. Darn it. That’s when I have to take the toy from them because all they will do is continue to destroy it.
At this point, I figured I might as well punch a hole in the squeaker to see if it would still squeak. Does it? Yes, it does and I have a video to prove it. How great!
The ZooYoos is an awesome toy for dogs who love squeaky toys. It will squeak and squeak and squeak even if their teeth puncture it.
