Have you ever played with your dog? We don't mean games like fetch or tug of war. Not how humans play but how dogs play. 

When puppies are learning how to play, they can be nippy, ear pulling, tail biting, little wrestlers. It's difficult for us to play with our puppies in the way that they are used to. We were tired of all the toys on the market that were designed to be given to our dogs. We wanted to play with them. We wanted to make a truly interactive dog toy that considered both the dog and owner

Pupr Pals™ are lovable plush animals that your dogs can befriend, and puppets for interactive play. 

We developed Pupr Pals™ dog puppets because we wanted to make an interactive dog toy for both pets and their parents. The puppet has elements to stimulate the dog during play, and protective elements for the owner. It can be used to stop puppy biting, for roughhousing, enrichment, play, and training. 

  • Padding on the inner lining of the puppet protects against sharp puppy teeth during play.
  • Robust arm sleeve protects against sharp nails and prevents playful scratches.
  • Hidden squeaker in the throat and extra crinkly tail entertains and stimulates the dog's prey drive.
  • Great enrichment tool for tiring and training energetic puppies. Bond with your dog in a new way through shared play. 
  • We now offer a 90 day no-hassle Bite Back Warranty. If you forget to put away your toy and your dog destroys it, we will replace it once within 90 days without taking another bite out of your wallet.
  • Designed in the USA. Patent Pending.

Have fun bringing the inner puppy in your dog back to life!

My Dog's Favorite Toy

This is, without question, my cockapoo's all time favorite toy. She goes wild every time it comes out of the toy box. She loves trying to attack and kill it! It's a very well-made puppet and does a great job protecting our hands when our dog bites at the squirrel. It holds up well, too. Shipping was super fast, and my package came with a very sweet hand written note. Please keep making these. They make my dog so happy. When she wears one out, I'll be back for another. Thank you!

Much improved

My first review was in 2022, and it wasn’t positive, however I got a second chance in trying this awesome product and let me tell you, one month in of constant tugging, and its perfect. Would definitely recommend it to everyone!

Never wants to stop!

My 12 year old terrier mix never wants to stop playing with this toy. It became his favorite instantly. Because of his heart condition, we've had to limit his time a little bit (he gets really into it!), but he truly cannot get enough. Excellent product.

It's a hit!

I have a very high drive toller who has an obsession with squirrels. We got this toy as a way to feed her prey drive and allow her a way to engage in this behavior in an acceptable way. She's hooked and loves it! I love that it's a puppet so I can truly animate the toy for her and we wrestle with her - I pretend to "attack" her and she works on trying to pull it off my hand - and I'll eventually let her pull it off and she gets time to finish her "kill" which usually ends with her finding the squeak and she's so proud and happy at the end of the session. Great enrichment toy that feeds this behavior need.
