More Information

To use, load the Squirrel Dude with your dog's favourite treats or kibble. If you would like treats to come out faster, you can trim the Treat Meter® prongs. Once the prongs are cut, there's no going back, so we recommend trimming only a little at a time and then testing.



"We don't put kibble in our squirrel buddy, as my two girls will fight to the death over it. I do, however, put some peanut butter inside the opening each morning when I leave for work. Keeps them busy for a good little while. The squirrel buddy is stronger than Kong -- my mild-mannered, but very persistent 60 pound Weimaraner destroyed two Kongs -- one regular and one heavy-duty. She hasn't managed to chew up the squirrel. Other toys from the same company haven't fared as well against her, but the squirrel continues to survive my ferocious chewers. Ordering three more!"

"This is one of the only chew toys that my english bulldog has not destroyed within a few days of getting it. He is a fairly aggressive chewer, and can destroy a nylon or cloth toy in less than 30 minutes. I would highly recommend for an aggressive chewer."

"I have German Shepherds and have used these Purple Squirrel for years! I love regular kongs for the younger puppies but they are way too easy for my older dogs to get the treats from. These squirrels are made from the same type of tough rubber but made to be more of a challenge. The larger ones can fit more than 1/2 cup of their kibble so I can even give them part of a meal in the squirrel. To make it even more user friendly you can cut one or more of the flaps covering the hole if your dog isn't getting it..... but then make sure you buy some more later on!"

  1. A great buy

    Posted by Ferris Bueller on 20th May 2012

    Our dog won't touch a toy unless it's filled with food. She's figured a lot of the puzzle toys out, and cleans out a classic Kong in record time.

    I really needed something to keep her occupied for an extended time, and Squirrel Dude is my man. It's similar to a classic Kong, except it has four flexible, triangular tabs in the opening.

    You can control the "flow" of food--simply leave the tabs as is to make the dog's job harder, or trim them so the food falls out faster. You'll have to gauge it based on the size of the treat you plan to use, and how dedicated your dog is.

    We like to fill this with smaller treats--kibble, bits of chicken jerky, Zuke's, and broken-up biscuits, so I just barely trimmed each tab and it works great.

    She'll work at this off and on all day, and sometimes will take longer than a day to empty it. We've had Squirrel Dude about six months--he takes a beating every day and has held up incredibly well. This was truly money well spent.
