aww those pics are so cute! My Murphy (GR) used to carry a stuffie with him every place he went, including on walks and to the Vet.
Bentley has a few but he would much rather play with a noisy bottle or an empty box. If I give him a box he's busy for the rest of the day. He puts it on his head, tries to sit in it, throws it in the air, drags it from room to room. He's a cheap date

EDIT: I just watched the video above my post which came on same time I posted, If your dog chews up boxes like in the video I wouldn't let them have it. Too dangerous. Bentley just play but if he ever starts tearing them up he won't be getting them anymore.

Yeah, good point Joyce, I also would remove the box. Same with the ice cream thing on a plastic container. My dog would just eat the plastic I guess, so no boxes and ice cream except in a kong. But I did like the milk jugs idea. Always with close supervision, of course.

Brew loves bottles! Sometimes the kids will leave a 500ml empty bottle out and I'll catch Brew knocking it around and I'll take it away from him because I'm scared he might puncture it and cut himself on a sharp plastic splinter.
I prefer to let him play with the large pop bottles because he can't actually pick the whole thing up in his mouth unless he grabs it by the spout. He has a BLAST with the bottles.

Bella has one of these. It comes with a replaceable water bottle inside with a squeaker cap. She's had it for about two months. She ripped the cover off a tennis ball today, but she has not been able to ruin this.

Amazon has some good prices on these.
Thanks for sharing this! Have always worried about them having plastic water bottles and this looks like a great, safe way for them to enjoy chewing on them. We have just ordered Sammy a cow one

I used to just put it on very tight but recently DH has started this..he puts a lighter to the mouth of the bottle for just a second, then screws the top on. It melts together and even I am unable to take it off.

Just a note on this....the bottle is kept inside with a strong Velcro strip. In two months, Bella hasn't opened it up, but it's something to keep an eye on just in case. I wouldn't hesitate to sew it shut if necessary. We haven't had to replace the bottle it came with.
