Is it puppy safe
Answer by ChewyOct 15, 2022
This toy is designed for adult dogs.

Our Squirrel Dude arrived smelling like it’s been in a container with a melted vanilla candle. It’s a strong smell that permeated the whole kitchen. Ran it through the dishwasher and the smell didn’t change. Is that just how the toy is supposed to smell?
Answer by ChewyNov 08, 2020
This toy features natural vanilla-scented rubber.

Purple teether

We got this thinking it would help with teeth/chewing issues and start our girl on catch ball games. The treat dispensing part was not a hit but other treat dispensers aren't either so no big deal there, she just doesn't care for that part. she chewed on it for a bit and then lost interest in it along with many other toys before and since.

Terrific Toy!

This terrific snack toy has my Golden Retriever puppy gnawing away happily to get the goodies out from within. We love it!

Royally Fun

The only bad thing about this is that it is smallish for a big dog. Love how the treat is held in, so those smart pups don't get it out after 3 heart beats! Royal purple makes it easy to find!

Does what it says

My pup is not as excited with the toy as I was with giving it to him. He does not yet understand how to use it and also I probably have a learning curve on what to put it in to keep him occupied. I like it for what it is and will work to get Noir to love it too.

I just received the toys yesterday and I have to say so far so awesome! My doggies usually destroy everything in the first 5 minutes. These ones have survived the first 24 hours. I used to buy the Kong ones but they don’t last and the hard material is easy to tear apart, at least by my Weimaraners. I’m glad I gave this one a try regardless of the bad reviews. I always try to check the reviews first before moving forward to not lose money. But I needed a dispenser chew toy and they are not so many on the marker for tough chewers. This toy seems to have a good and strong material. After chewing for the whole afternoon and evening, the toys are still intact (see pictures). I’m So Happy with this purchase so far!!! I will update in a week :).

My pit bull puppy, almost 2, is the HEAVIEST chewer I’ve seen. She’s chewed through every single toy she’s had - including a Kong that is very similar to this. We got the package on Tuesday, today is Thursday, and I SWEAR this thing has occupied her nonstop! And, she hasn’t chewed through one piece of it yet! She’s a HUGE fan, and now I need to order another for my lab, didn’t think she’d like it, but she does, and my pit ISN’T going to give it up. BEST $9 spent Ever.

Best Feeder

This is a strong, durable slow feeder-best one I have come across! I have a 1 1/2 year old lab mix, that’s curious and highly food motivated. This toy allows me an opportunity to enjoy my morning meal while keeping her busy. I highly recommend

Seems sturdy, intense odor

This has a very intense odor to it. Very perfume-y. Think "cheap candle section at the mall" perfume stink. I've soaked it in hot water and Dawn, left it by a window to air out, still nothing. I'm waiting for the weather to get above freezing and then I'll set it outside and see if direct sunlight/air does something about the dizzying odor emanating from this toy.

Survived the Pibble Test

Added peanut butter and let the pup have at it. It survived the chewing test and have used it at least 3 times already. It's a keeper.

Busy Buddy= Great!

I have bought literally $100’s in toys since getting my two pups in September. Only for them to destroy them in a couple of days tops. The BB squirrel so far has been indestructible and they play with it all the time!!
