Tuffy Dog Toys' Hippopotamus dog toy is a favorite amongst soft-dog-toy-loving dogs! Hilda the Hippo dog toy is soft to chew on and that feels darn near perfect to some dogs on their teeth and gums. Not all dogs like the feel of those hard rubber and plastic chew toys, so for them, Tuffy's dog toys are the best choice in soft dog toys. Why? Because unlike ordinary stuffed animals, Tuffy's Dog Toys are made extra strong with 7 layers of stitching and 4 layers of fabric! Yep, that makes them some of the toughest soft dog toys around. Hilda Hippo measures 16 " x 7 " x 8 " .
Now, while Tuffy's dog toys are tough soft dog toys, they are not indestructible. Tuffy's Hilda Hippo Tuff Scale rating: 7 out of 10. This Hippo dog toy is easy to keep clean - just toss her right in the washing machine on a cold water setting and then air dry. Oh and if your pooch likes dog water toys then Tuffy's Hilda Hippo will be a big hit because she floats and is really fun to fetch in the water!
7 layers of stitching - Each dog toy’s four layers of material are sewn together with two rows of linear stitching and two rows of cross stitching. The four rows of stitching are protected with a webbing that is sewn three more times!
4 layers of material - Two layers of industrial grade luggage material, one layer of plastic coating, and finally one layer of soft Fleece. All four layers are rolled together and then sewn together four times in a one inch cross pattern to prevent layer separation.
Protective webbing - Additional industrial grade webbing is sewn around the outside edge with three rows of stitching to cover and protect the first four rows of stitching.
(Mighty Dog Toys has the same manufacturer as Tuffy's but Mighty Dog Toys have more of a "fluffy, stuffed animal" look and feel. However, Mighty Dog Toys are less tough than Tuffies - but more durable than average stuffed toys.)
