Speckles loves a good squeak toy, as many dogs do. The only time it gets irritating is at 5am in the morning or when it’s a constant stream of, “Squeak…squeak…squeak…squeak”. You get the picture. Hear Doggy! is a new line of ultrasonic toys that makes noise for your dog at a pitch only they can hear. The concept obviously makes sense and is along the lines of a dog whistle. We received one of each variety: one flat, one large plush, and one small plush. Speckles was pretty patient as I took some photos first…at least for a while that is…
She immediately fell in love with the whale as it was a nice size and one she could easily handle. The fins and tail were perfect for sucking on and she could easily get her mouth around the squeaker. As for the moose, well, that lost an antler immediately. We tried to curb her from eating the other one but I ended up just cutting it off. Speckles will run around the house shaking it back and forth.
Now, how do you know if the squeaker is actually audible to the dog if you can’t hear it yourself? You can hear what sounds like a puff of air escaping but how we know it worked was by watching Speckles. When she has a normal squeak toy, she will put it in her mouth and constantly press on it so she can hear the sound. With the Hear Doggy toys, after she finds the squeaker, she does the exact same thing. Speaking of finding the squeaker, it was much harder with the blowfish since it’s so big and round. That didn’t stop Speckles from having fun looking for it though.
These are great toys and do what they are advertised to do. If you have a chewer, though, you may not want them to play with these unless you are actively watching them. Though the Hear Doggy! products are sewn well, they are still plush toys and are not make to withstand a lot of chomping abuse or tug-of-war. Otherwise, these are toys you won’t mind your dog playing with at all hours of the day and will may even save your sanity.
You can buy Hear Doggy! toys at Amazon for $6-12.
