Rated 4 out of 5 by Dlc46 Fun toy for pups
My pups enjoy this toy when it is pulled around on a hard surface. I tried putting food treats inside but they ate it all up pretty fast....wish there were a way to put something in there that made the noise but was harmless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Myndi Challenging Toy
This toy is great for dogs who like a challenge and who do not give up easily. This is not a pull the rope a couple of times and all the food comes out toy. They definitely have to work at it and some owner/dog training may be involved in order for the dog to figure it out. My dog is not highly motivated so I am having to train her to push and pull the rope back and forth and even then if she is not rewarded with food coming out after a few times of moving it she gives up. The more food you put in the better, once it gets down to a low volume it gets very hard to get the food out. I would give this product 5 stars for dogs who are highly motivated and find other interactive toys too easy, however, I would only rate it a 3 if your dog gives up easily, and you aren't interested in training your dog to use it since they more than likely will give up.
One thing I've thought about doing to make it easier for my dog is to replace the original rope with one I can tie a smaller knot in to see if that would help.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Roxy Fun, but not hardy
My dog really enjoyed the puzzle, but the bottle didn't hold up well at all. He got it twice before he was able to start pulling little shards of plastic off and I had to take it away. Not recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angie Awesome toy!!!
Honestly, I never write reviews but this toy is so cool I wanted to. I can't stop laughing watching my dog (a boxer) play with it! She spins it around with her nose and kicks it with her feet. Then the treats fall out and she can't find them at first because they are under her. Anyway, totally unique toy and very durable. Use really small hard treats.

This is a sturdy fun toy for my German Shepherd. He just lives getting the kibble and treats out

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jen45 Doesn't work the way dog wants to play
When dog naturally pulls on rope, it cuts off access to food so he can't really get any out. Design doesn't make sense.

The 'rubber' purple portion (the soft component with the spikes on it) is really smelly. It has the smell of rubber or plastic. After 3 weeks, I'm still trying to 'air it out' after washing it (mild soap and hot water).
I think it will work okay, hence the 3/5 stars, but I haven't even tried to give it to my dog yet. I'm waiting for the smell to abate to a level where it doesn't offend me, anymore!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Venny Not very durable
Bought this on a whim. My Tzipora is a pup and loves different toys in her kennel while I'm at work. I came home from work at it was completely torn into pieces. I even purchased the bigger size thinking it would be more durable for my 35lb pup but nope. It was in shreds. Disappointed and asking for a refund.
