Tough Toy Pros Review
The Kong® Squeezz Jels Pig drives Willie nuts when it bounces like crazy down the hall. This little oinker packs a big punch of a good time when Willie gets ahold of it. And if you’re looking for a nearly indestructible dog toy that’s going to last a long, long time, you already know you can trust the Kong® name.
The pig is hard enough to withstand the rough mauling Willie dishes out, yet pliable enough that he can squeak it himself while he carries it in his mouth. He will throw the pig in
the air and chase it down himself, which is fun to watch.
It is made out of smooth, non-toxic, rubber-like material. It has no flavor or scent that a human can discern. We use it inside and outside. It wipes right off or comes clean under the faucet.
In reading the reviews I learned that some dogs chew off its nose or ears, which I understand can be an issue. If your dog is a nibbler, the Kong Squeezz Ball is likely a better option.
The Squeezz Jel family comes in medium and large sizes. Willie’s pig is a large size (see product specifications below for measurements) and it fits in his big mouth nicely.
It’s a pig, it’s my pig, I got my pig, I looove my purple pig, yes I do. It bounces and I chase it and I squeeze it and it squeaks and I looove my purple pig, yes I do. Mom throws it and it goes all wonky haywire bouncing all over the place and it’s awesome, my purpley purple pig!

Dogs were able to chew this toy into pieces in 5, 10, 15, 20, and 30 minutes, three hours, four hours, a day and a couple days. The little ears, nose and legs can entice dogs to chew them off. Sometimes the squeaker will break. A repeated complaint is that the toy is smaller than expected.
A lot of reviews say the erratic bounce keeps their dogs interested in playing with this toy. Dogs enjoy squeaking it in their mouths themselves. Some dogs throw it and entertain themselves with it on their own. Ninety percent of Chewy reviewers recommend this Squeezz Jel pig, and 61% of Amazon reviewers rate it four stars or higher. It is said to be durable and long lasting even with aggressive chewers. Time periods reviewers have said this toy has lasted them include: two weeks, three weeks, three months, six months, a year, a year and a half, and three years.
The Jel Squeezz family are great products. It is definitely worth your time to invest a few dollars to see if your power chewer enjoys these as much as others do.
