Rated 4 out of 5 by NeonDragonfly Try these treats with it
I bought the large size for my 5 month old Malinois mix, to stuff with some treats to keep him busy with a puzzle. When i received it i soon found that the holes were too large for most treats, and most of them just fell right out, so unless you have some rather large treats you may need to stuff it with a toy or something else. I did find that "Blue Buffalo Health Bars Baked" work really well with the large Hol-ee. It took my pup 15 minutes (with a little help from me) to get the treat out. these treats come in plenty of flavors, and my dog likes them (but then again, he eats anything and everything). so try them out if none of the other treats you've tried work.
I can't comment on the durability of the Hol-ee because my dog has never sat there and chewed on it, so it's still intact, but I'm sure a heavy chewer would easily rip though the soft material.
Oh, and one more thing, I love the way the Hol-ee smells. It's like vanilla rubber scented. Lol i know it's strange, but hey.

Rated 4 out of 5 by boxerlove Stuff it with things!!!
My dog LOVES this ball. I bought one a couple years ago and its still holding up but its now an "outside" toy because it has been thrown in dirt and mud and has just become a little too dirty for inside. Even after washing.. its an outside toy now. So we had to buy another one for inside. I saw online someone shredded up an old shirt and stuffed it inside this and the dog could pull the pieces out..having a dog that likes to destroy stuff and tear things up i thought it was a great idea. So we bought a new one for inside and we did fill it with pieces of fabric and she does love to tear out all the pieces. So happy to have a new ball. Hands down this is her favorite toy. One change from our old ball...this new one has a strong scent of vanilla or something. Im not a big fan of this new added feature. Not sure why its scented this way. Would prefer it not to smell like that. .but its still her favorite and will probably buy another...i got a medium and we could have gone a size up. I have a 48 pound dog. Ita a good size for her catch and run around with though. Would definitely recommend!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Redpyre Good, with some big caveats
I can imagine a lot of dogs just totally obliterating these within minutes, and the holes really are quite large, but it worked well for my particular situation. I have a treat-motivated chihuahua mix that is energetic but doesn't tend to mouth or chew much. So, filling this ball with large and/or odd-shaped treats that don't immediately fall through the holes has worked well. It has great movement across the floor when played with because it's so bouncy and lightweight, but I don't know how well it would hold up with play rougher than that.

Rated 3 out of 5 by nashoba19 Definitely destructible but still kinda holding up
My dachshund rat terrier loves this ball (as any ball he owns those are his top choices). This one however he has tons of rubber pieces he had bitten to separate them but hasn't pulled them off yet. They're hanging on by a few rubber strands. Any day or moment for that matter they will come off and they come off in big chunks so be careful if your dog were to injest one it could get expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by karmar Great Busy-Time Toy
My young Boxer loves this toy with a treat put inside. Keeps her busy while I need a break from her constant need to play with me. Had a few days now and toy, so far, seems tough; as she is quite a chewer. I only wish the manufacturer would make a large size ball with smaller holes, so I could put in smaller treats. Have to use a large treat so it won't fall out quickly. Would prefer to use smaller treats so I can give more frequently. After about 20 minutes of trying to get treat out, I break it up so she doesn't get too frustrated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2Doodlesmom Dogs love it. Easy to grab.
The holes made it easy for my puppy to grab and run with it. It's soft so it will squish down if they push on it, then bounce back into shape. it's even put up with my two playing tug-o-war with it so far. Glad I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jessa412 Keeps my dog SO entertained!
My german shepherd is OBSESSED with tennis balls but she always destroys them if she gets ahold of them and doesn't get as much playtime out of it. With the holey roller, we put a tennis ball inside and she stays entertained for HOURS without reaching the tennis ball to destroy it!
