Why do dogs do that? My puppy will chew a stuffed toy apart until she gets at the squeaker then promptly looses interest in the toy. Shes never interested in the squeaker-less toys for chewing apart. her dad does the same thing.

i think their find a challenge like everyone said, my dog use to do when he was younger but seem to stop doing it now and just use the squeaker toy to get our attention and play with him.

My dog loves toys but his favorite ones are fuzzy toys with a squeaker. he also likes this rubbery bone thing that squeaks. He has a bad habit of carrying all th toys outside when he is excited and then he never has them inside when he want to play.

my puppys dad will sit behind us while we watch tv and bite the squeaker until someone plays with him. He'll chew his toys to bits to get at the squeaker..or squeak it til he makes my pup and her mom chase him.

Well I no longer have a dog, but when I did, mine would do the very same thing. I too wondered why they would want to get this squeeker out of the toys.Then, they have no more interest in it at all.

She'll go back to it eventually...usually its AFTER i've sewn it back up with the squeaker in. Bells in it dont work the same as a squeaker.
