    I have a very assertive, active 8 year old mini poodle who loves this. I got him the size small which is larger than I thought it would be, but he can still handle it. This is a great toy for a smart dog! I would not, however, use this as your dog's first puzzle toy because it is pretty challenging. A better pick for a first toy is the Buster Cube. The Tug a Jug toy seems to get more difficult the less food there is inside, so when you give it to doggie for the first time, make it pretty full. My dog has been known to play with it for at least an hour at a time, which is a fantastic break for me and very good for him.

  • Disappointing

    By on

    It's extremely difficult for even small bits of kibble or treats to come out because the rope is so thick. I took pity on my dog and unscrewed the bottom cap so she could get at the treats. She did but then she started chewing the bottom (she's a vigorous chewer) so that I wasn't able to screw the cap on anymore and had to throw the toy away. On the plus side, she did enjoy chewing the rope.

  • Not for every smart dog!

    By on

    Penny is 9 years old and has been using this "purple jug" since she was 8 months old. I use it as part of her daily feeding. Once she finishes her bowl of food, she grabs that jug and heads to a favorite spot to eat. If I forget to put it down, she's looking all over the house for it. She quickly learned how to push the rope in and then paw the jug to release the kibble. I'm replacing this today, because I have a puppy that probably won't ever use it properly and chewed the rope. Now the kibble won't come out. Love this "Purple Jug"!!

  • Great quality

    By on

    We purchased one of your tug toys years ago. It was heavily used and starting to look sad. I found the name of your company on the toy and googled you. Was so happy to find your company. Very reasonable prices and a superior quality product! Quick turn around on shipping. Absolutely satisfied.

  • Great idea

    By on

    Although my puppy chewed up the rope and I cut it off, I continue to put treats in the bottle and he still has to work at getting them out. But he has figured out if he continues to turn the bottle upside down the treats will fall out! Keeps him entertained though.

  • Our dog loves it

    We had a larger version that was too big for our dog to pick up on the wide end. This one he carries by the rope, rubber ball, and the base. He occupies himself getting kibble out using several techniques.

  • Great interactive toy.

    I have used this toy to keep the minds busy for 2 of my dogs. I place kibble in the jug and let them go to town. Great stimulation for dogs that need it.

  • Ridiculously hard

    This toy is definitely not for everyone. It's awesome because it is well made and very challenging. The bad thing is that it's very, very challenging. Our sweet, exrtremely smart girl who can figure out every puzzle and toy in minutes has struggled with this one. It's not because it's ingenius but because dogs don't have human dexterity. You have to be able to hold the bottle upside down while simultaneously pulling the rope in and out. Almost impossible if you primarily work with a set of jaws. However, my dog "problem solved" this by bringing the toy to her bed and resting it on top so the side of the toy was hanging over the edge of the bed. She then tugged the rope for treats.

However, my dog "problem solved" this by bringing the toy to her bed and resting it on top so the side of the toy was hanging over the edge of the bed. She then tugged the rope for treats. But, she hasn't figured out to push the rope back in. She just moves the toy again. If your dog isn't a creative problem solver, this toy may be disappointing. I'm just glad to have something other than a ball for her to roll around. I'd give it 5 stars for quality and challenge, but 3 stars for the average dog who will struggle with it. … more
