These milkers immediately got a response from The Beasts. From first glance they KNEW that these were toys for them!

Durability:

The Beasts have gone ballistic on these toys for a month and have not even a tooth mark to show for their efforts!

Lifespan:

June 2002 and counting.
Update: After 3 months of the most brutal attacks of tug of war and serious chewing sessions, the Beasts were able to damage the milkers. One was torn in half and the other the end was chewed. We trimmed the end and it is as good as new.
Update: I have bought a second batch of Milkers. I've been filling them with treats & jamming a Nylabone in the big end. This keeps the Beasts busy for 5 minutes (Bergamot) and 15 minutes (Emrys). The scraping of the Nylabone against the rubber weakens it and this is where the tears were occuring. If I leave them alone they last for more than 6 months.

Cost vs. Durability:

Well worth the price for the time they last. These are one of the few toys that the Beasts will entertain themselves with.

Safety:

No squeeker or hard parts just tough, black rubber. I do check all the toys daily just to be sure. Bergamot was able to chew off some pieces.

Boston Proof?

Alas, no. By far the most durable toy aside from a Kong (and much more exciting than an empty Kong)
