    I've just picked this up from Aldi, clearly modelled on a kong. The hole is a bit smaller thank a kong, so i dont know if Monty is going to get frustrated with not being able to extract the wet food Ive put in there, he's been at it for a good ten minutes so far. It's really strong rubber, I can't see it cracking or being chewed to bits anytime soon . 20170810_172446.jpg

    Just had a quick look online...lots of stuff! large memory foam beds for £12.99 with removable covers, perfect for the car :)

    Quick question, does the rubber toy have holes at both ends?

    @Beanwood Yes it does have 2 x holes , i actually think it might be more robust than a kong:eek:
    I have filled it up a few times and monty has emptied them pretty well. I probably wouldn't jam pack food in as the main hole is definitely smaller and it might get frustrating. I liked the fact the outside is all bobbly so will hopefully act as a teeth cleaner. At under a fiver I'll be buying another. And yes, the beds looked excellent , proper memory foam and easily big enough for a lab. I cannot justify another bed right now ....

    Another alternative to a Kong - Home Bargains have a similar toy in different colours for a few pound. They also have spikes and grooves on the outside so brilliant for a pup who is teething.

    This is a resurrected old thread. It caught me out, too, I went to see if they were available to buy online. I believe they're pretty good, so if you see them for sale at any point, it's worth grabbing some :)

    We’ve got some of these in green.

    To be honest - it was 2 for a fiver so although good value I still think I (and Stanley) prefer the real thing. The hole is really small so I use kibble and soak it and the pieces don’t fit and you struggle to stuff it with anything else as spoons, knives etc don’t fit.

    But in terms of durability they’re still going strong!

    Be careful with the home bargains one, I bought for my mild chewed (collie x) and he chewed the end off and nearly choked!

    Funnily enough, Aldi have been selling pet stuff again recently, not these chew toys, but a couple of things caught my eye, raised feeding bowls, electronic treat dispensers, and folding metal ramps.
