    GoughNuts are my all time favorite dog toy. I have big dogs that like to chew and these are great not only for the dogs but also let's you know when the toy needs to be replaced. They come in different colors but have a warning color inside. In other words once you see red on the toy it is time to replace it. Instead of finding pieces of what was once a toy we look for red spots on the toy and once we find them we know it is time to replace. Less of a chance that our dogs ingest the toy. Another upside is that the company replaces the toys for you. All you pay is shipping and for the lifetime of the dog they will replace the toy. Here is a pic of what one looks like cut in half so you can see the color change.

    It is really nice that the toy or product has a lifetime warranty just pay the shipping. Also nice that it comes in different colors for options.

    Wow, I haven't heard about this toy before. I'm afraid it would be too big for my Homer though - does it come in different sizes? Homer is a Yorkie so he needs really small toys.
    One thing concerns me - is this toy made of plastic? I'd be scared that my dog could swallow some of it.

    They do come in a smaller size for little dogs. Dogs around 10 to 45 pounds. It is made of a material similar to what KONGS are made out of. I have never had a problem with any of my dogs with them. My girl Brooklyn actually got one to the point that the red was showing through but she didn't ingest any of the pieces. She seemed to spit them out like we would old bubble gum.

    Thank you for the response. My Homer always swallows small parts of sticks and cones that he chews...but I guess no one would make a toy from materials dangerous to dogs so it shouldn't be a problem. It's food to know that they come in different sizes, I must look for them at the store:)
