Dizzy Hedgehog Squeaky Dog Toy (Verified Review)
Instead of stuffing, this dog toy has an extra durable rubber squeaky ball hidden inside its plush shell. As the manufacturers explain, dogs have an innate desire to “destroy and annihilate their toys” and a mess can result from overstuffed plush toys.
Our tester’s Pit Bull put it to the test and loved it:
Verified Review: “My power chewer loved it! Looks sturdier than a tennis ball, and I like that the eyes and nose are stitched in and not removable pieces. Ball is non-toxic and there’s no stuffing to deal with. It has a bright squeak, but the outer cover kept her focused on ripping instead of crushing the ball in her jaws. It was just the right size to hold steady in her paws while she tore and ripped at the outer cloth cover. Did not take long to reach the ball. Within 15–20 minutes, she had about .25 of the ball exposed. However, cloth cover holds together pretty well, in spite of a determined chewer. I would love to give her a Dizzy Hedgehog every few months.”Shop on the Rover Store
