Why Every Dog Should Have a Sumo Dog Play Toy
The large Sumo chew toy is a very durable dog toy that can be used as a fetch toy or can be filled with treats turning it into a treat toy as needed.
The Large Sumo makes a good chew and fetch toy. Because of its long shape it can tumble randomly like a football. The large version has a good size and weight that bigger dogs will enjoy. My Rottweiler Eli certainly prefers the it over the medium which I also have.
The middle cavity has a good size to it and I like to put large treats like Milk Bones inside. It then becomes a treat toy that your dogs will enjoy chewing on for the tasty reward. Your pups will also get valuable mental stimulation and become occupied for long periods of time.
Another good use for the large Sumo dog toy is to pack it with wet food or a wet + dry combination and freeze it which is great for teething dogs. The frozen option also comes in handy when you need your dogs to be on their for a while and want to leave them with something fun to do.
Quality & Durability
The Sumo dog toy is made of super durable, high-quality rubber and it easily earned a place in my indestructible dog toys list. It is very sturdy and has the feel and weight of something that is heavy duty. After over a year of daily use it only has a few tiny chunks missing.
The only visible signs of wear are the little pointy bits where my Rottweiler’s teeth gripped the Sumo. This only started to appear when I began putting food in the toy. That motivated my dog to crush the toy so that the stuffed treats would fall out
This Sumo toy is very safe and will not fall apart on you any time soon, it was built to last. I can leave this toy and my dog together unattended with confidence.
Indoor Use: The product is so big and durable the biggest worry you’ll have is tripping on this thing. Thankfully it is red and easy to see. It does have a lot of weight to it so playing indoor fetch will require careful attention. This toy can and will knock over big objects if you’re careless, you’ve been warned!
Outdoor Use: The cavity and ridges on this can trap dirt so keep an eye on that and clean as necessary.
Sumo toys are dishwasher safe which might be the easier to clean out the middle cavity.
Being an indestructible dog toy, the large Sumo dog toy has fantastic value. It withstood heavy use from my power chewer Rottweiler when he was in his puppy teething stage and continues to do so every day after he turned into an adult pup. Based on that, I’m sure the large Sumo would make an excellent chew toy for Pitbull or other power chewing breeds.
After a year of very heavy chewing, tugging, tossing, and
roughing around, this dog chew toy has held up remarkably well. Being able to
stuff treats in them adds so much value to it. Just use caution when tossing
this thing indoors.
Whether you need an indestructible chew toy that you can play fetch with or something that you can fit treats in this toy makes a great choice that will keep your dog entertained for hours.
