Both sizes are ok for my bichon - at least she thinks so - but the 'large' works better. She has no problem carrying the larger log or getting the squirrels out. With the junior, she'll hoard the squirrels once they're out of the log (they're not small enough to be a choking hazard), but the log holes are smaller and it's harder for her to jam her face in there and pull them out.
With my maltese, it's just the opposite. She had no problem with the large squirrels and she had some fun dragging the larger log around the room, but the combination is too unwieldy for her. The junior is a perfect size.
I've included a few pictures, with a standard AA battery to scale.
The squirrels are the perfect size for him to hold in his mouth and carry around and they're a good size to toss around for a game of catch. If left to his own devices, he will absolutely shred this toy in about a minute. However, when we used it with him - by hiding the squirrels over and over and tossing them in the air for him to catch - and then put it away after playtime, they lasted quite a while. This toy will definitely not hold up to chewing but when used interactively and with supervision it's fun and will last a bit longer.
The squirrels have quite a few seams and are easy to tear apart. There's not really a whole lot of stuffing so not a huge mess but a mess nonetheless. The squeaker is just stuck in there with the stuffing with not extra reinforcement or protection so be aware of that if your dog likes to kill things that squeak. I really like that you can buy replacement squirrels and they're not that expensive.
The tree stump itself has generally held up well, although there is some tearing around the holes just from the dog shoving his nose in there over and over again. Some extra reinforcement around the openings would be wonderful and would make this last even longer.
Bottom line, I think most dogs would love this toy and if you're willing to supervise the play this should be a must buy. However, if your dog is a heavy chewer and you're looking for something you can leave out for them to play with at will, this is probably not the best choice.
You can't beat Amazon prices on these animal puzzles - they're terrific as compared to ordering directly from Outward Hound, though here are correct dimensions/MSRPs - straight from the manufacturer's pages - to give you a better grasp of the sizes (dimensions shown are L x W x H) of the available puzzles (along with their MSRPs)... HIDE-A-SQUIRREL: Junior (5" x 5" x 5", $12.99), Large (6" x 6" x 7", $16.99), Jumbo (7" x 7" x 8", $24.99), Ginormous (7" x 7" x 12", $29.99). There's only one size available for the other two; HIDE-A-BEE is 7" x 6" x 8", HIDE-A-BIRD is 8" x 6" x 6", each listed for $19.99. All of the puzzles come with three squeaky animals (except the Ginormous squirrel puzzle, which has six) to hide inside of a nicely durable plush (well, as durable as they can be when our canine friends have their way with them!)
According to my son, the two younger girls have NOT stopped chomping on this toy since the day it arrived, and are just enjoying the heck out of it! Obviously, a toy like this will eventually end up in shreds the more it's played with, but better this than my son's shoes! Makes me feel good, with the distance between us, to be able to send a little love their way every now and then.
