Ginormous Hide-A-Squirrel Puzzle Dog Toy *Daisy Favorite + HOT Deal*

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


Dog lovers, I just spotted one of Daisy’s favorite dog toys on sale for HALF OFF right now. It’s the Hide-A-Squirrel and Puzzle Plush Squeaking Toy for Dogs from the fine folks at Outward Hound.

It’s the Ginormous Size and the sale price is $14.99 ($15 OFF). Other sizes are also available, but this one is the best deal since it’s got the most squirrels and holes to hide them in, making the activity more exciting and challenging for your dog. It’s the lowest price we’ve seen on this dog toy favorite since we reported it on sale for $15.55 back in 2012!

This toy is very well-made, and I recommend you supervise the play with your dog. This will help keep your dog from chewing up the squirrels…it’s NOT a chew toy but an interactive puzzle toy.

The way Daisy and I play is that I show her how I stuff the squirrels in the tree trunk and then hold it out while she figures out how to find each squirrel and pull them out of their holes. Sometimes she wants to run away with one of the squirrels, so I use the opportunity to practice “Bring” and “Drop” and reward her with lots of squeaks and start the game all over again.

The squirrels are also fun for throwing in a game of fetch, and I sometimes use them for hide and seek, sticking one or two behind sofa cushions and letting her “find” them. I keep this toy put away in my office closet and she sometimes comes to nudge me and goes to the closet to show me she wants to play. I also keep her Indoor ChuckIt Set (also on sale) in the closet, too. I think these are her two favorite games because they both involve human participation and aren’t toys that are just left lying around for her to play with all the time on her own.

Anyway, as with all deals, this one can change quickly and without notice so be sure to head on over HERE if you want one. And always remember to verify the price in your online shopping cart before checking out. The deal includes FREE 2-Day Shipping for Prime Members (or free shipping with min. purchase for non-Prime shoppers).

KONG FlyerKONG Flyer
We recently featured the KONG Flyer dog toy in our weekly K9 Kamp Fitness Challenge called ‘Just a Doggone Minute to Win It!’ and I can’t say enough about how fun this toy is.  The KONG Flyer is a flexible and durable flying disc toy that can be used both indoors and outside. Because it’s made from soft rubber, it’s gentle on your dog’s teeth. It’s also easier to catch and is super accurate in flight – even though Mama has horrible aim! We’re keeping ours in the trunk of my car so it’s handy all summer long, wherever we go!

Yes…dogs CAN swim, but if your family does water sports, boating or spends a lot of time on and near the water, it’s very important to have a lifejacket for your dog.  Providing flotation and buoyancy with bright colors, pet parents can easily track their pup as the family enjoys water activities.  Take your dog with you to PetSmart so that you can fit them with the proper size   Outward Hound Pet Saver Lifejacket and enjoy peace of mind all summer!
