We bought the Kong Wubba for our Alaskan Malamute Kunu after he loved the Kong Classic but it didn't go down too well with him. The bright red toy looked great, looked enticing even, but maybe Kunu is the wrong breed for this sort of toy.
Firstly, the Kong range isn't the cheapest out there which is a but annoying, especially when one of them lasts as long as this one did... Kunu managed to rip open the top part fairly quickly, revealing the squeaker ball and the tennis ball! He disregarding the tugging tassles after that, meaning the actual aim of the toy was completely lost. He has managed to enjoy the tennis ball, however. The squeaky lost its squeak shortly after too!
I guess if you have a dog that likes to tug then this toy will be ideal. The tugging tassels are pretty durable, it's just that the stitching isn't! Especially for inquisitive dogs! He's made use of the tennis ball, but hte sqeaky ball is quite small so be careful with smaller dogs that they don't swallow it!
A lot of the other items in the Kong range are more suitable for our dog, so I wouldn't judge the brand on this one product.
I bought a Wubba for my border collie and she absolutely loved it. The toy went everywhere with her but unfortunately she is one of those dogs that loves to chew anything chewable. Within a few weeks she had managed to break into the Wubba and I had to take it away. There was a small ball at the top which could possibly choke her or get lodged in her stomach if she managed to swallow it.
I did buy her another Wubba but this time it lasted less than half an hour. As these toys are expensive I gave up on anything that could be chewed up and bought things more suitable for my dog.
Having said that, I thought the Wubba was very well made and would last a long time with a different dog. The one that I bought had a squeaker safely inside where the dog couldn't get at it so it was a squeaky toy and a tuggy toy all in one. The tails also make it ideal for throwing.
This toy has proved to be so popular that Kong now make a number of different versions of the Wubba. You can get them with or without the squeaker and you can get one for puppies too. The one that I bought had an extremely tough ballistic nylon covering that less destructive dogs wouldn't necessarily chew. To be fair, Kong do say that the toy isn't for chewing.
Kong Wubbas come in different sizes and colours and I would highly recommend that you try one for your dog. They do absolutely love them.
If you want to buy a Wubba for your dog you can expect to pay anything from about £5.50 to £13 or £14 depending on the size and type. It sounds like a lot of money but I have found that buying cheaper toys is generally not worth it in the end.
