Pup loves it but chewed the squirrels a***s off!
My 8-month pup really enjoys playing with this toy! But with this toy, I learned that she loves to chew up stuffed things to get the stuffing out. It seems she started with these squirrels and then worked her way around to chewing the stuffing out of anything else. So now I use the tree to put some un-stuffed toys in - she picks it up and tosses it around. When she gets older, I can give her another shot at the squirrels - after I sew up the back sides and reattach the tails.
Hide-A-Squirrel - Large
from North Attleboro, MA07/30/2012
Our 11-mo. old puppy Kongo (Shorkie) loves his Hide-A-Squirrel.....but he has already bitten one of the ears off, his favorite part of the squirrel. Not only does he like the squirrels, but he likes to put his head in the tree trunk. I am glad that I got the large even though Kongo is considered a small dog (12 lbs.). I think anything smaller would have been too small.
This is my (large) llasa-apso's favorite toy. She is 12 years old and this is the third time I had to buy the toy because she played with them so much during her entire life they absolutely had to be replaced. They are well made, like I said she had each one for about 6 years each. They really look like chipmunks so she runs to the "chippy" as soon as I say the word. As soon as it is purchased, place the three animals in a dirty pile of laundry for a few hours then put them in the "tree trunk". It is truly an interactive toy for your dog and they squeak of course which adds to their delight. The other big pet supply store stopped selling them and I could not find the product in time for Christmas for my dog so I purchased something else. I don't know how lucky I was that Entireley Pets came onto my computer, I had no idea it existed as yet but I searched "Hide-A-Squirrel" and they amazingly had it. I am extremely pleased that my old dog can be happy in her "twilight" years with this toy, it really is making her act young again!

Dog likes to play with it. Once he's gotten the squirrels out, he plays with the tree stump. It's not too big for a 15 lb. dog. Only problem is that it is too easy to get the squirrels out, so he doesn't have to spend a lot of time on the puzzle.
hide a squirrel toy is wonderful
my dog plays with it all the time and loves it. taking the squirrels out every time i put them inside the tree :) good price and investment.

Our puppy loves this toy. He enjoys the challenge of pulling the squirrels out of their soft "house" and then he runs outside with each one, one at a time. He puts them in a pile and plays with them. At the end of the day, I refill the "house" with the 3 squirrels, so the game can start over again the next morning.
I will definitely replace this toy with a new one when this one is no longer identifiable.

Our Westie's favorite toy. She works hard to get the suirrels out, then waits for us to pack them back in. Such a great toy, we bought a spare. As much as she plays with this, we want a backup. A great bargain, too!
Dogs LOVE this toy
My three dogs (2 retrievers and a lhasa) LOVE the squirrels. We have had this toy for 3 years, and it is is the only stuffed animal toy they have not completely destroyed. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, because the treehouse part of it was torn to pieces within a month of buying it, but the squirrels are extremely durable, and the dogs love the "squeak" they make when they munch on them.
The dogs loved it,wish it was better made.
All 3 of my dogs love this. Unfortunately all 3 squirrels either had split seams when they got here or the seams split open within a few minutes. It would be great if they could reinforce the stitching and use a better quality material. I stuffed some other toys into it and the dogs had fun getting them out also.
Greatest toy for hiding treats
Our dog loves this toy! We use it to hide treats inside of it when we leave the house. We stuff other small toys inside of it as well as the small squirrels and it is a challenge for her to pull out all of the toys and find the treats. She hasn't chewed up any of the little squirrels and she loves squeezing them and making them squeak.

My dog really loved this. He went crazy taking the squirrels out and couldn't wait for me to put them back in, BUT he ate the squirrels apart in no time ( and he's only 15 lbs). He still throws the tree trunk around though!
Little Faith loves it
She had a 'hide a bee' before this and she eventually tore the 'bee hive' so I threw that away. For a change I bought the Hide a squirrel as the replacement, she loves playing with this too.
She loves it.
Jasmine loves this toy. She likes to squeak the squirrels and whip them by their tails. She carries the trunk around and sticks her nose in to get the squirrels. Best toy I have every bought for her.

My puggle loves this toy. She has a blast getting the squirrels out of their home especially if I put a treat in there for her to find also. It is great to watch her figuring it out.
BEST TOY THERE IS
from Bowling Green, KY10/23/2012
My friend's little dog had this toy. My yorkie just loved it! I got her one. There is nothing to compare to it! She loved for me to put the squirrels inside the squirrel house and her get them out. We are not on our fourth one. She plays with it all the time. If you love your little dog, you must get her one of these! She will love it and love you for getting it for him.
I love this- my dog even gets the squirrels out of it- so funny!
Alot smaller then it was in the picture. And I mean alot smaller
I almost think I enjoy this toy more than her! It is well made. She figured out how to get the squirrels out quickly but is happy to do it over and over. She loves throwing around the empty tree trunk as well.
Lots of fun
My pup loves finding the squirrels and playing with each one.
Sammy loves it!!!

Sammy loves all of the little sweaky squirels and it took him no time to figure out how to get them all out of their treehouse. Sammy even plays with the treehouse. Great toy to keep him occupied.
So much fun
from Northern California10/31/2012
This wasn't a great puppy toy, as it got deconstructed fairly quickly, but now that she's a big girl, she's completely interested in the mechanics of it, just like previous dogs. I miss the bird house that has been discontinued, but we'll sure give the beehive a try, and probably hide the Skinneeez stuffing free pink flamingo in that one too. I'm sure she thinks we need to go back to school.
Hide A Squirrel
My dog loves this toy. She learned to get all of the "squirrels" out very quickly and we play over and over.
dog likes it...
my dog can get the squirrels, or really chipmunks, out in 2 sec's other than that, it is super cute, and glad i got it! :)
Lots of fun!
My dog loves this toy. He brings me the "tree trunk" and then one by one brings me the squirrels so I can "hide" them again. The squirrels have squeakers so he loves that too. It really is a fun interactive toy and very unique.
best toy purchased yet
siberian husky plays with her squirrel more than any other toy she has. She picked up on getting the squirrels out of the holder very quicky. Would highly recommend for hours of entertainment for the dog and yourself.

My dog Honey got this toy not even in 5 mins was playing with it like crazy. It is the best toy ever! She loves sticking her nose in the toy to get a squirel out or shake it around.
Hide a Squirrel
I bought this as a gift for my Dad's dog for Christmas as a cute gift because she has a particular interest in squirrels. The only problem I had with it was that it was much smaller than I expected considering I ordered the large size. This is a fun toy but is definitely for smaller breeds.
Great for little dogs
I only have to get a new set when the big dog has gotten ahold of it. My shitzu loves it and likes me to stuff them back in the tree so he can dig them out. My moms Maltese has had the same set for years and its still his favorite!
Great idea. My dog loves it! We have a lot of fun playing with and hiding the squirrels. I purchased the Large, because there was no smaller size available; it was not as "Large" as I thought it would be, which is fine because I have a small dog (12 lbs.) and the Large size is a Perfect size for him.
Dogs love it
I bought a second one - my dogs love it. Even without the squirrels they love throwing it around.

My mini schnauzer loves this toy! I had purchased two last Christmas, but I gave them away as gifts. Gretta was so sad, but now that she has her own, she is happily shaking out and pulling out the chipmunks over and over again.

The squirrel tree was hidden in a box in a closet waiting to be wrapped as a Christmas present for my Elkhound Mix. Apparently she didn't want to wait for Xmas because I came home from work and she proudly showed off her new toy! She loves pulling the squirrels out of the tree house or just parading around with the whole treehouse in her mouth! Great Toy!
Love watching dog play with this toy!
Lacey, my 75-lb. Rotti mix, absolutely loves this toy! It is so much fun to watch her play with it. She absolutely hates when the squirrels are in the tree. She figured it out fast and gets the squirrels out quickly but then just jams her snout in looking for more. The squeaker on one squirrel broke within minutes but the other 2 still work great. Hopefully, she doesn't destroy this time for a long time.

This is a great toy. Buddy, a large lab plays with this very gently. He takes out the squirrels and carries them around hiding them and when we put them back in, he starts all over. Never tries to destroy as he does so many others. Keeps him busy and thinking.
Ordered for a pair of Shih-Poos who just love this toy. They have played with it daily since it arrived.
Great design and sturdy

I love watching Max take the squirrels out of the tree and watch him bury his nose in the tree stump. He loves the soft fabric on his face.

My dog loves thisoy, it keeps her busy for a few hours at a time.
My 3 dogs are all loving this toy. Fun for them to squeak the squirrels and we also stick other toys inside the tree to keep them entertained.
