The "eau de bovine" grabbed the Beasts interest before I even opened the box! Emrys was doing pogo jumps on her hind legs next to me and Bergamot was doing his stampy-foot dance in anticipation.

Bergamot's brain went into his "this is too good" mode. He took the double handled tug and layed down with his chin resting on the tug. He only does this when I give him a big recreational marrow bone to chew on - it is SO good that he can't even chew it - he just lays with it and makes sure Emrys the stealer does not take it.
Emrys went wild chewing and shaking the tugs. One by one she collected them all - even the one Bergamot was holding. Great fun was had by playing fetch and tug with all the different styles: single handled, double handled pocket toy & fetch tug.

These are just as durable as the milker toys we reviewed. The cords are a very durable nylon and many of the tugs are reinforced with garden hose on the interior. Just like the majority of dog toys, these are meant to be used interactively and will last the longest if they are not left with your dogs unsupervised. recommends using these toys as an interactive toy and we agree.

Cost vs. Durability:

These are well made and durable toys. We think they are very reasonably priced for a toy that will last and bring this much excitement to your Bostons. It is obvious that a lot of ingenuity went into the creation of these toys. It is also great to know that buying these toys for your Bostons to enjoy will benefit Boston Terrier rescue.

The Beasts have only damaged one out of 4 Udder Tugs. (Yes, it was Emrys!) They are still playing with the remains of the toy. What I like so much about the inflations/moo-moos/milkers/uddder tugs is that as they succumb to Boston terrier abuse, you can trim the damage off with scissors and keep the remainder. Sometimes you get a new toy out of it!
As always, keep an eye on your Boston Terrier with any toy. It should be removed if it begins to show chew damage.

Boston Proof?  

Very close!
