It LASTS! :^)
We try so many doggie toys at our house - most of them lose big time. We have managed to keep the kong toys (black or red ones) but I use the kongs every day for treats & they get tiresome, also I have to really pack the kong and put nut butters or freeze them to make the fun last - Squirrel Dude holds our p. newman treats, bits of kibble & other goodies and it is difficult to get them out so they last a long time. My dogs (2) toss them about and mess with them for hours trying to get the last of the goodies to fall out. We have 75 lb Goldendoodles who are master chewers. Squirrel Dude gets an A+ at our house.

I bought 2 squirrel dude, one for my mallinois who is a strong bitter, and it worked excellent better than a kong.
It just arrived and already I know I have to order another! This is so much better than Kongs, which I loved when they were babies. They just mostly lay down and lick treats out. This one is so much harder to get the treats out that it is more entertaining, for me even. (Also, I can't get the broken cookie parts out of it either!) They work and work at it, then try to ignore it, then bark at it and toss it. It is hilarious, especially, as one of my dogs does not like to play and usually lacks persistence. It's been three hours now and he's back at it, growling at it, even. Now, I need a bigger one for the large dog and wish it were time for gifts, as I'm ready to buy everyone I know one!!!
This is a G-R-E-A-T toy!! The prongs on the bottom opening keep the little treats from falling out. Keeps my pet busy trying to get treats out!!
Other brands have huge openings on bottom (and no prongs) and treats easily fall out! Pet doesnt have to 'work' to get anything out of other brands!! Just tip them over and treats spill out.
Only bad thing about Squirrel Dude is I can't find it in stores!!

Bought this at Pabby's Pet Pantry a few months back...it has been awesome! We have a Golden Retriever and he loves to chew, chew, chew. We give this to him after placing a few smaller treats in the inside...he rolls on his side and back holding the toy to get treats out of it. He will pick it up and bring it to us. It's very simliar to a "Kong" toy, but the big (or should I say little) difference is that at the bottom of the toy, there are a few "teeth" that hold the treats inside the toy. The treats won't just drop out of the bottom...the dog has to earn it. I'm thrilled with this toy and it has endured the scrutiny of my Golden. Excellent product, I would buy it again.
The Squirl Dude chew toy is the only toy of the type that will last more than a week or two. The "Gorrila Kong" chew toy is the short lived toy I am talking about. The big black toy gets the top round bitten off in about 4 days.
Squirrel Dude is a huge hit

Squirrel Dude is a huge hit - with my cat! It didn't take him long to figure out how it works and it gives him hours of entertainment.
My dogs really like the "squirrel dude"....I put cat food in it for them and it takes them awhile to get it out!
My dogs favorite toy!
My black lab loves this toy! It's tough enough to handle his chewing.

Super cute and fun to play with. This is a perfect food/treat dispenser for the dog who gobbles up his food. Great for even strong chewers.
Luv squirrel dudes!
These make Excellent food dishes for dogs! We recommend them to all of our clients :)
Great Treat Ball
Have used a lot of different treat balls and this by far is the best. I like the 4 prongs which make it more difficult but can cut if you need to make it easier. My dogs were able to chew up other treat balls very easily but have never chewed these up. I do have to replace them every 3-6 months though because the prongs do eventually fall out. My dogs usually use them twice a day so I figured replacing them every so often is not that bad. We have used them for several years now and will continue to use them.
Squirrel dude broke first use
from Raleigh NC11/16/2011
My dog usually uses the black kongs. However, the squirrel dude was recommended to me as one of the top four rubber chew toys for dogs (along with the regular kong). My dog was able to tear it (break the rubber near the larger hole) the first time he used it. This toy is not very durable.
my dog loves this i would recommend it to anybody who has a dog that chews things up!
