Thank you to fellow BT Lover Pam Murphy of
PaMaKa Bostons for telling us about these fun toys.
These milkers immediately got a response from The Beasts.
From first glance they KNEW that these were toys for them!
"Yes!Yes! Chewy, bend-y, and I can
pick them up easily during a good game fo fetch! I grab
them in my mouth & run with joy!"

"This is my favorite thing to hit
Bergamot in the face with!"
The Beasts have gone ballistic on these toys for a month
and have not even a tooth mark to show for their efforts!
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
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.
Alas, no. By far the most durable toy aside from a Kong (and
much more exciting than an empty Kong)
