Rated 4 out of 5 by Rainy77 Great product for most dogs
I have three dogs--all different level chewers. The puppy does great with this; it lasts forever. Our middle dog (a determined chewer and very good motivated) did great with the first one, but once he realized the treat came out, that was it--the next time I used it, the treat was out in 5 minutes. Our toughest chewer and compulsive boy was the same with the first, good (but fast), until he realized it came out. With the next, he destroyed the ball until he had the treat--since he doesn't eat the plastic stuff, and it was already ruined, I let him go with it. Sadly, now only the puppy gets to use them. They are great products for the right dogs; my dogs aren't the right dogs. I would say they're perfect for most dogs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Debi Good idea, but not chew-proof
My dogs loved this initially, but had it ripped apart within 1/2 hour! Had to throw it away as too many little pieces that my dog had chewed off was making me nervous, I was afraid that he was going to choke on one of them! I have two terriers, they are not big dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mrshottmiller Perfect for Rough Players!!
I have a Working German Shepherd who gets bored easily and destroys every toy possible. I took a chance on this an not only does it keep him occupied for hours at a time but it's his favorite toy. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LaurieB Great toy for aggressive chewers
My Weimaraner has had one of these for several years now. She is a very aggressive chewer when it comes to her toys. This ball has held up very well & she loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GracieLake My energetic little pup loves it!
I have been looking for a toy to keep my smart little Swiss shepherd puppy occupied and I finally found it! She has been playing with it non stop since it came out of the chewy.com box! She gets bored with her other toys in minutes and this is the first thing to keep her attention (and not be destroyed right off the bat!). I would definitely buy this again.

I love this and so does blaze (pitt/lab mix) He tends to be a chow hound so this is great. I feed half his food in bowl and fill this up twice for him to chase around. Great for mental and physical stimulation. He has not tried to chew it up so not sure on that. He just loves to push and toss it to get his kibble.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kimster521 Very good but would be perfect with some easy fixes!
- Perfect shape for my large breed powerful chewer so he can't get his mouth around it enough to chew and destroy it
- Holds his blue buffalo food in it which is just the right size where it's hard to get out but not too hard!
- Keeps my pup busy for a while. He happily noses it around to get the kibbles out!
- Incredibly annoying to fill -- easy fix is to make it a funnel shape opening on either or both sides. The shallow funnel would prevent the kibble from falling out to easily while keeping it easy to just pour in the kibble.
- Only lasts a few months because the little prongs on each of the holes are so flimsy they break off either by the dog or squishing the kibbles in to fill it. Easy fix to make those prongs stronger or to do the funnel method as stated above

Rated 5 out of 5 by momofmrhandsomepierce keeps the pup busy
admittedly, my expectations for this ball were not high-- our young and active AmStaff didn't enjoy other food puzzle type toys, so I thought he might give this ball a go for a few minutes and then lose interest. I was wrong! Once I figured out the right treat for size of the opening (charlie bears are too big but zuke's minis are the perfect size and only ~3 calories), Pierce the dog wouldn't stop nosing it around until only a few treats were left. Since Pierce is also an aggressive chewer and the material of the ball is not very thick, I've been concerned he would puncture it when he picks it up and chews on it, but there's been no damage yet (of course this requires supervision like most toys). Overall, I've been EXTREMELY pleased with this purchase and just wish I had bought it sooner! This is the PERFECT toy to keep him entertained and active when it is just too cold to go out for a long walk. Four paws and two (human) thumbs up!
