Hedgehog dog toy has a loud grunter inside. You'll be impressed with the size and quality of this toy for your dog. This hedgehog Rattles and Gruts! Filling made from recycled plastic bottles The poly fiber fill stuffing inside this toy is made from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.

This lovable, best-selling Hedgehog has a deep-sounding grunt noisemaker and a rattle inside. Hedgehogs fit naturally in a dogís mouth, making them enjoyable to carry. Compared to most other plush toys, the soft faux fur and minimal seams lessen a dogís need to rip and tear this toy.

Review for Medium Grunting Hedgehog (Brown)
August 17, 2017
My dog LOVES this hedge hog. She had a Jumbo, and that was way too big for her... she's an English Springer Spaniel, 42#.
I'm going to order another one for a spare!!

Great noisemaker.
July 30, 2017
I try to look for toys with noise other than squeakers. My dog likes them and so do I.
This one is a cutie. I've had this kind of honking noise before but in another sort of toy. It seemed to last quite a while. When they go, I usually try to open them up to see if they can be fixed. Was successful a few times and then it became irreparable. Don't know how long this one will last for but she is enjoying it.

My Lab loves her hedge hog.
This one has 3 different squeakers but the grunt is the best. Stands up pretty well to large teeth but won't withstand ripping.

Our dog loves this toy!

Our dog fell in love with this hedgehog as a pup and continues to love it! He carries it around, room to room, in our house and cuddles with it when he lies down. It is a well made toy and he isnt a destructive dog, so he still has his original hedgehog. I occassionally throw it in the washer to freshen it up. Since he loves it so, we thought we'd better buy a couple of spares to have on hand for when his first one eventually wears out!

My Lab loves these hedgehogs
March 22, 2016
These are my Lab's go to toy. It seems like they are making these more to squeak than grunting. My dog loves the grunt more than the squeak. She carries them everywhere and even carries them when chasing the rabbits in the backyard and doing a muffled bark at them. Even after chewing them up and I remove the squeaker and grunter noise maker out of them she still loves them. The large size is perfect. Hope they don't change them and make them only to squeak.

Still squeekingly alive

My Lab/Shepard/chow had this as her favorite to carry around. The Dachshund Beagle mix next door got one as a gift. It is his favorite to carry around. Fast forward, My Black lab mix carries it outside, as well as my Aussie. I am glad I bought in bulk. This toy is a winner especially if your dogs breed is one that has to have a critter in his / her mouth. I am sure the wildlife outside appreciates this toy as a substitute.

Great toy

I felt very lucky to find a hedgehog on your site. I've been looking for them in many different stores and other websites, but had no luck. My pup really enjoys playing with this toy.

Fun, well made, durable
March 5, 2014
My puppy is still a little small for this but it doesn't stop her from playing with this as much as possible. She loves the weird sound and so far we only had to cut the "fingernail" claws on the toy. She was ripping them off pretty quick but i'm already cutting tags off all her toys since she chews at those first. Amazing toy, if this ever falls apart I will buy another. My border collie is so hyper active and this really distracts her

My 105lb dog loves it. Makes honking sound when squeezed and has rattle sound as well. He carries it everywhere. Sturdy and cute.

Just ordered our second one!

This is a dog owner's salvation! Our Shitzu loves this thing. Great for travel, as they can play in the hotel room and not make a huge racket or break things. She shakes the heck out of it to relieve built up energy while in the car too. We have a basket full of all sorts of toys, but this one is her number 1 choice. Do they wear out, of course, but after daily beating up for two years, what can you expect??

Great toy for the money
June 24, 2013
I've purchased a number of these for my dogs. They love all the noises they make and they are just the right size to thrash around. The grunting sound doesn't work after they sink their teeth in the toy to deep. I do a little surgery to repair it a double of times before buying another. Only thing I'd change is add more protection to the part that grunts. Still a great toy for the money.

Funny toy - our dog enjoys playing with it as much as we enjoy it when he plays with his new furry friend.

Noisy, But FUN
February 12, 2013
My English Springer Spaniel is absolutely crazy about this grunting hedgehog. I has two different sounds plus a shake/rattle sound. He walks around gently crying with this in his mouth. It's gotten a great deal of vigorous squeaking and still going strong!

We call this his 'piggy' - he loves that grunting noise. I bought a couple as backups for the day it grunts no more.

Durable toy
December 4, 2012
I have had a large hedgehog for several years. It is one of my favorites because of the grunts; it sounds different than my other toys. My cousin is very hard on his plush toys. Even though he is bigger than me, I think the hedgehog is very durable and will be a great toy for him also.

The large hedgehog is holding up well even though it is used for tug of war. It's a little on the big size for the mouth of our springer.

Long Lasting and High Quality

All dogs seem to love hedgehogs... this particular one seems better made than any I've purchased in the past. Most of them don't last very long but this one is going strong. Reordering when it wears out!

Dog loved this toy but it didn't last long. She is a puppy and not a strong chewer and this lasted a week or two tops.

My lab loves these toys. They are good quality and remain in tact a fairly long time with constant chewing. The 'grunt' noise is different than your normal squeak and keeps my dog's attention.

I have a 13lb little guy with power jaws. This hedge lasted only 30 minutes. In the destruction process, he was able to pull out all the "fur".

Okay for small dogs
February 14, 2012
I purchased these for my 130lb Lab/Great Dane thinking the 9" size was large enough well 9" is from tail to nose. Very small in height. Definetly would recommend the Jumbo. Maybe they need to carry an X Large. I know they are out there I have had them before. Thats what I thought I was getting. Oh well now I have 4 tiny babies for the 2 Jumbo ones I had to reorder. They are the only toy my dog likes, but I would recommend if you have a smaller dog. This is the Jumbo in the pictures.

Great Gift!
December 14, 2011
This is a wonderful dog toy as it is sturdy and will get alot of playing time! There are no small parts to rip off. It is almost "destuff proof", too!

The grunting noise adds to the fun.

One of our favorite torys for our Lab and Bulldog!
