Favorite Toy of All Time

I would give this toy more stars if I could. I have a 50 lbs. lab puppy, and I can safely leave this toy with him. It is the only treat-dispenser that he has not destroyed, and this one is in perfect condition after months of intense chews. I use his regular kibble in the two smaller holes as they dump out of the largest. It is heavy, and he likes to drop it, so it may not be a great toy if you like your downstairs neighbors.

Tough Dogs

I have boughten this item 3 others times. I love how it has 3 holes to fill. Most interactive only have one or two. Also, it very easy to clean most Kongs or other plastic interactive toys have one opening making it very difficult to keep clean. Also, it bouces as is great for big dogs.

Oh, barnacles!

I like this for my puppy. It tilts, rolls, bounces, and keeps her busy very well. I used the very small or the largest holes for her treats, but she knows what to do and she keeps at it. She's very persistent, so I'm glad I chose this fun toy.

Drives Her Crazy!

She can’t get the treats out! When she gives up, she gets stressed and brings it to us for help. We can’t get them out either and we also get stressed! We have tried table knives to break up the treats into smaller pieces to shake them out, but even that doesn’t work. We cut off the rubber teeth but even that does not make it any easier to win getting a treat.

Great toy!

My pup get treats out quickly of most toys and I was looking for something more challenging for her. Its great!!! I love watching her bounce it around to get the treats. I did cut some of the plastic because it was too challenging at first. That's what the toy directions recommended. I also give it to her on days that are cold and she's got a lot of energy... Just great.

Best toy ever!

This thing is amazing! It has kept my dog occupied for hours! I will probably trim the inside tassels because it is challenging to get the treats, but my doggo doesn't seem to mind.

Great fun and challenging

I wanted to get my Sammy a tougher (durable and challenging) treat game and this one works great for him. He prefers to lick and chew to get the treats out, sometimes he tosses it around. The first day he spent a good two hours with this then I had to help. I like that the holes have adjustable (by cutting) flaps to adjust for your dog’s preference, but I have not done that. Instead, I make pieces smaller but still challenging. Overall great even for an aggressive chewer who destroys most toys.

Golden Retriever diet hack!

This is now the breakfast and dinner food dispenser for our food-focused Golden. It holds about a cup of kibble that she has to work to get out by flipping the barnacle and chasing it around. There are little prongs facing the interior of each sphere that help slow the egress of the treats/kibble. We put a little peanut butter in the opening of the 3 holes to make it even more fun and tasty. Having to work for her meals makes it more entertaining and slows her otherwise voracious snarfing speed. She loves the challenge and seems more satisfied afterwards. After trying other techniques, she is now finally shedding the pounds the vet has been hounding us about. Also, she is less likely to vomit as she had been likely due to eating so quickly. The barnacle is very durable.

Busy Buddy

I am mixed on this one. It really hold the treats in. We even cut some to the rubber teeth off so they can get to it. Now they get most of dog food out. But even the large one still has a hard time getting a small milk bone treat out of it. If you want to keep your dog busy for a long while this is your toy. But on the other hand it could be frustrating for them if they cannot get all of it out.
