Rated 4 out of 5 by LynW 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. 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.

Not the worst toy in the world but it took my puppy about 20 minutes to rip the rope to shreds when other rope toys usually last months.

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 OGSammy This product was not too fun for my puppy.
My puppy had little interest because it was very hard to get the snacks out. The opening is very small and maybe a larger older dog might be able to hold the bottle upside down for the treats to come out.

The product overall is great however my dog had the braided rope in pieces in minutes. The rest of the product seems like it will hold up well. We shall see!
