  • Very indestructible

    By on

    This is a good treat dispensing ball for dogs that are chewers. The only thing I don't like is how easily the treats can come out. I only cut the little tabs off one end, but the treats still fall out too easily on that end. I used to have one of those hard plastic treat balls that screwed together and had a tray dividing it in half, so the treats would have to fall through 2 holes, but my dog eventually learned how to unscrew it by chewing on it and would destroy them too easily. This one holds up great, but the treats inside don't last as long. Still very glad I have it though!

  • Needed a distraction for my pup

    By on

    My Basset hound, Reuben, just recovered from his 2nd abdominal surgery of the year. He likes to eat inedible things (crayons, checkers, Fitbits, rocks, etc). I suspect it's pica given that there's no rhyme or reason to what he's eating, just that he eats everything. Soooo, I was looking for toys that would occupy him and wouldn't be destroyed very easily. He's not an overly aggressive chewer, but I knew that if he was able to get pieces of the toy off, then he'd eat them. The Chew ball toy has worked great! I enlarged the opening to allow the kibble to go in (and come out) easier, although in retrospect, enlarging the opening on one side would have done the trick instead of both sides.

No matter, the kibble is easy enough to load into the ball without a funnel. I might drop a few pieces, but that just give Reuben something to clean up while I load the ball. He bats it around and plays with it until it's empty and even after it's empty. Perhaps a really aggressive chewer would have been able to destroy the ball, but he hasn't. It's held up really well. Will definitely buy again if this one gets lost or worn out and would definitely recommend for someone looking for a way to entertain their dog. … more

  • Excellent Toy

    By on

    Very durable. I placed small "bones" and charlie bears inside. My one year old golden played with it all the time but none of the treats came out. The ball is pretty stiff so breaking the treats to dispense didn't work. I clipped the ends of the tabs off and the charlie bears fall out. He continues to work to get the larger treats out. A must buy to keep your fur baby occupied.

  • Very cheaply made

    By on

    I normally do not write reviews, but I was utterly disappointed with this toy. The description says it is very durable, but it is not. I could easily rip it with my fingers if I wanted to. I bought it for my German Shepherd but I would not feel safe giving this toy to any dog, let alone my chewer. Chewy is a great website and I am very pleased with their service, but I caution against buying this toy.

  • Medium/Large Works for my 68 lb & 54 lb dogs

    By on

    I purchased one of these in Medium/Large initially for my 1.5 year old Blue Heeler/Lab/Bully mix. She is about 54 lbs and enjoys chewing and is food motivated. All I do is put the kibble in and let her roll. With her kong, she can lay down and just lick out the insides, with this ball, it keeps her up. She can't hold it down and get the treats out due to the effective tabs that can be adjusted. With her, we kept all the tabs in so the toy was more difficult. I love watching her push this around the house, it keeps her attention and keeps her busy for a while. I had to purchase another one, because my senior 12 year old labrador, who only likes balls when they are in the water, LOVES this toy.

I had to purchase another one, because my senior 12 year old labrador, who only likes balls when they are in the water, LOVES this toy. She enjoys laying on the ground and pushing it back and forth with me watching the treats dispense. We've had to close off rooms when giving these to the dogs, otherwise they get stuck under various things and then the dogs stare at me until I go find it! For the senior, we took out just 1 of the notches to help the treats disperse better for her as this is the first mental stimulation toy she took any interest in. I would say the worst part about this toy is getting the kibble IN the ball. I know a funnel would work fine, I just don't have one so I manually put the kibble in. HOWEVER, I don't mind it, because that makes it more difficult for my dogs to get the kibble OUT. The last piece of kibble is always the hardest for my senior to get out and she ends up giving up until I get it out for her, but otherwise, both my dogs stay very interested in this toy, I am very happy with it! My Heeler mix likes to chew and she will put this whole ball in her mouth and bite down to try to get the treats out and it is soft in her mouth, but durable and strong and she has yet to break any part of it, looks the same as when we got it! If you are looking for something for your pet to do in the crate while you're gone, I would go with a frozen kong w/ peanut butter and kibble in it. If you're home to supervise, I would suggest this treat ball as it keeps your dogs moving (my heeler lays flat on the ground with frog legs and will army crawl around the whole house) and it keeps them interested. It's fun to watch my 12 year old play with this... makes her look and act like a puppy again :) … more

  • Not For Strong Chewers

    By on

    I have a basset hound mix that is a super chewer. He was on his way to destroying this ball within 20 minutes. Had to take it away. This would be a great indoor fetch ball when the weather is bad, if your dog will actually bring it back. Soft enough to not do damage. It just didn't work with our destroyer.

  • Actually Used As Intended!

    By on

    My dog Uhura usually does not play with these kinds of toys the way they're meant to be played with. I got another one a while ago that was a different shape that she just chewed up (and swallowed...). This one she figured out and loved it! It's a ball, so for a dog obsessed with balls it's perfect plus it seems pretty indestructible. She can't eat it! All in all, 10 out of 10.

  • We love it!

    By on

    We have 5 dogs but our AB plays the most with this toy. All his other kong toys were destroyed in a matter of hours, we've had this ball about a month or so and its still holding up fine. He's a heavy chewer too. We have this in a size large.

  • best chew ball!

    By on

    This has been one of the best toys I've given my pitbull. He hasn't destroyed it yet and I've had it for over a month. I love that i can dispense treats within the ball, it makes playing fetch even more fun because he try's to also get the treats out.

  • Awesome toy!

    By on

    I purchased this for our boxer who is 1 1/2 years old and chews on everything! She loves this toy! The only suggestion I would make is to make the openings a little more flexible as the treats we put inside never come out.
