We’ve purchased 2 of these now and I’m waiting to purchase a third, as soon as they are back in stock. Our pup carries this rocket around every day. Struts it in front of her brother and plays tug of war with her brother with this toy. To clean it, I hand wash it in the sink and let it air dry. Highly recommend!! We have had a couple of tears in in BUT I just take a needle and thread to it and it’s good as new!
