First Impression: Well this toy is very durable and challenging.
M. Brown
The prongs inside that keep treats in work too well for treats, it's almost impossible to get them out but it's been working well for his kibble.
Rachel Nash
They keep my two dogs busy and happy while I'm off at work (at least for a good while after I leave)!

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.

I bought this for my Pembroke Welsh Corgi and at first, he didn't like it. The food wouldn't come out because it would get stuck in the purple knobs that hold the food in. So finally, I just cut those off and the food came out easier (but it's not like it poured out; very subtle). He was bored with his generic dog food I put in there so I got into chopping up carrots and celery and mixing them with peanut butter and freezing it, and Little Bear goes NUTS!!! He LOVES it! And it takes him a good 30-45 minutes to get everything out. Just as long as its frozen food with some sort of buffer (like peanut butter or Kong Stuff), its one of his favorite things. It's a pretty exhaustive process to get everything out for him, and he's pooped afterwards. He likes it more than his Kong balls I'd have to say.

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!

My new 65 lb Malinois is a strong chewer and has chewed the tops off of several of the red Kongs. But these Buddy Squirrels appear to be thicker or of a denser material then the Kong brand. The medium sized Buddy Squirrel is the same size as a large Kong. Unless your dog is well over 65 lbs or has the jaws of a tiger, the medium size may be the correct size for your dog. My dogs have be unable to chewer through these. I cut out the four rubber "prongs" in the opening of the Buddy Squirrel with a box cutter and stuff them with canned dog food. I then freeze them over night. In the mornings when I want some peace and quiet I give my two Malinois the frozen stuffed Buddy Squirrels and this treat keeps them happily occupied for an hour or two. The medium sized Buddy Squirrels can handle almost 1/3rd a can of dog food which is exactly the amount I wish to feed of the canned food. I occasionally stuff in bits of carrot, apple, celery, peeled broccoli stems, fresh ground peanut butter (the other "Skippy-type" has too much fat and will give the dogs the runs) or even bits of raw meat to give the canned food a bit of texture. I believe dogs should have to work a bit for their food as it challenges them both physically and mentally. I have purchased a couple of the large Buddy Squirrels also but they are so big and heavy that I think they are better suited for a much larger dog. I'm afraid to play catch with the large Buddy Squirrel for fear of damaging her teeth. The large size is really, really heavy duty. I don't think a Tiger would chew through those. OK, maybe a Tiger. The medium sized ones are lighter and I feel more comfortable tossing them lightly and allowing her to catch them. Remember that dogs should be monitored with any chew-type toy.

I have 2 black labs and a rottweiler. This is my youngest labs FAVORITE! He has destroyed every toy I ever bought him except Squirrel Dude!
We have had this toy for 2 years and it still is in great shape.

Hoover has figured out how to lay the squirrel on his paw so that when he chews on it a certain way the treats will come out. My rotty's trick is to throw it down the stairs for her reward!

This toy is far better than the kong as the little tabs help hold the treats in longer. I break up a few treats so some will fall out easier than others. If I don't want all the treats eaten too quickly I just put in bigger ones. You could cut the tabs so that the treats come out easier, but I find that buying or making homemade treats in different sizes works better. Once the tabs are cut, then you are stuck with that size hole for good.

Mr. Squirrel is one awesome Dude!

My local independent pet store highly recommended the large Squirrel Dude for my big dog who loves to chew. I gave it to him, and he had chewed off the head in less than five minutes. He was starting to swallow the rubber chunks he chewed off. I'm getting a refund. The label said that this toy "is not considered indestructible" -- no kidding!
