    These smell good!

    By Tracy48 on Feb 9, 2019

    These are good for dogs who like to chase things. They bounce around in a crazy way when you toss them. I'm not sure they actually calm my dog, but he likes trying to catch them.

    Unhappy doggie

    By Bella on May 13, 2019

    We put treats in and our 6 month old husky was not happy in retrieving treats. We cut the inner holdings back but she doesn’t seem to really work with it and it it’s quit heavy. The scent is good just doesn’t work for our fur baby.

    These are great!

    My anxious little basset hound mix loves these!! They have a strong chamomile smell, which is really relaxing. My pup likes all the nooks and crannies and various places to hide treats. We've only had this toy in rotation for a few days, but I'm hopeful that the chamomile scent will stick around.

    My dogs are pretty hard core chewers and this toy has lasted over a year now. I'm not sure if it really "calms" them or if they are just really into the toy so they sit still longer. Either way I do recommend!

    Huge Home Run for Anxious Dog

    By on

    We adopted our dog from animal control a few weeks ago. She had been on the street for an unknown length of time and was traumatized. Although we avoided leaving her at first, there were a few occasions when we needed to be away for an hour or two. This triggered some very extreme and destructive doggy separation anxiety. We decided we needed something to soothe her (since she loves to chew) and to entertain her during crate time. She destroyed a Kong in one day, but from that experience we found out that she was treat-motivated. We gave her the barnacle from this calming toy set and stuffed it with her little training treats.

She destroyed a Kong in one day, but from that experience we found out that she was treat-motivated. We gave her the barnacle from this calming toy set and stuffed it with her little training treats. We had to show her that there were treats inside, and once she figured out she could flip it around to get treats, she was hooked. She spends lengthy periods of time nudging it around with her nose, pouncing on it with her paws, and flipping it to get treats to pop out. This toy gave her an opportunity to re-learn how to play, and helped her relax enough to enjoy herself. She can also sit down and gnaw on it to soothe herself, and it has yet to give way to her teeth. I don't know whether the aromatherapy works or not, but I do know that this toy gives her a great deal of mental activity to take her mind off her anxiety. She is highly focused on it when she's playing with it. It's the best puzzle toy we have found for her, and once she manages to chew through it, I will buy her another one, because it is indispensable to us now. We call it her 'soothie'. For your reference, she is a 25 pound mutt, probably some type of lab/terrier mix. This toy is a good chewing size for her. … more

    Great for my small dog

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    My small dog had really bad anxiety and these seemed to help him. Always filled with peanut butter, yogurt, or pumpkin, and froze them and he loved it.

    Great for separation anxiety

    By on

    I bought this for the world's clingiest dog and it's worked wonderfully. He no longer destroys things around the house when I'm at work. He even nudges them around for hours when I'm home like a little bulldozer. Worth the money.

    Great toy, lasts, easy clean up.

    By on

    I'm not a big fan of the smell, but the pups like tearing the prongs out from inside? They don't try to get the treats out either, just enjoy the sweet smell and destroying it over time. All in all, the toy is great for keeping them occupied.

    Perfect size

    I have a 60 lbs doodle and I thought a medium size was going to be too small but its perfect, fill it up and he's entertained for a good while (:

    Calming/busy work for puppies

    I use these toys for my four month old Cockapoo when I am getting ready to keep him busy... and it works! All I do is put a little bit of dry food in it with a few treats and it keeps him occupied until he gets them all out!
