Sumo Dog Toy (Large) Review

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.

Quality & Durability

Made of a highly durable and high-quality rubber I would definitely put this under the indestructible dog toy 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 very small chunks missing.

The only wear signs visible are the little point marks where the teeth gripped the Sumo. This only started when I began putting food in it and is how my dog crushes the treats so he can get them out.

Fun Factor

The Large Sumo makes a good chew and fetch toy. Because of its long shape it can tumble randomly like a football. Also because of its size my dog prefers this one to the medium sized Sumo which I also have. It has a good size and weight for larger dogs.

Also since it has a good size cavity I like to put large treats on the inside like Milk Bones and then it becomes a treat toy that the dog really enjoys working on for the reward. It can keep your dog occupied for long periods of time and offers good mental stimulation for your dog. You can also pack it with wet food or a wet/dry combination and freeze it, this is great for teething dogs or if you are away from the dog for a while and want to leave it with something fun to do.

Value

Since it is an indestructible dog toy, I think it has great value. It has withstood heavy use from my power chewer dog when he was in a puppy teething stage and every day since as an adult. I have a Rottweiler but would make an excellent Pitbull chew toy or other power chewing breed.

Safety

This dog chew toy is very safe and will not fall apart on you any time soon. These are built to last. I can leave this with my dog when unattended.

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 with this requires attention. This can and will knock over big objects if you’re not careful, you’ve been warned!

Outdoor Use: The cavity and ridges on this can trap dirt so monitor closely and clean as necessary.

Sumo toys can be cleaned by hand or in a dishwasher which might be easier to get into the cavity.

Final Thoughts

After a year of use of very heavy chewing, tugging, tossing and roughing around with this dog chew toy has held up remarkably well. Being able to stuff treats in them makes this an excellent chew toy overall. Just use caution when tossing this thing indoors.
