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

My 60lb set of teeth has chewed through every other toy he has had(except his Kong) in a matter of minutes. This is the second one of these balls we have had. The first one lasted 8 months and only started breaking down because we left it outside. He loves to play fetch with this ball and we play several times throughout the day. At night he likes to just lay and chew on it. There is never a mark on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HimmelreichGSD Stronger than expected!
Very strong ball. I wanted something with a more rubbery base of a ball, wasn't worried about the treat dispensing, as I wasn't using it as a treat ball and never used a treat in it. I bought a few of these for my 6 working GSDs, something to keep them busy/as a reward as they are in their kennels after working. These balls lasted them 7-8 MONTHS! My GSDs can break and tear into anything (if they want to). Extremely powerful bite force, especially when they get bored. This ball lasted through all of it for 7-8 months. Extremely impressed because almost nothing lasts that long with them, including my chain-link fence around our lake. (Of course my GSDs chewed through that like butter when they wanted to go for a swim).
Although almost nothing lasts in the jaws of a German Shepherd, this large ball did for quite a while. Definately reccomend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mikki595 The Best!!!
After trying numerous balls years and years ago I found this one. Haven't used any other since. They typically last my GSDs 4+ years. And they are used daily for fetch and chewing. I highly recommend them!!!!!

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by myoldkyhome Fantastic Chew Toy
I bought this for our German Shepherd who loves to chew! This ball has held up very well, in fact doesn't look like it has been chewed on at all! Would definitely recommend for dogs who are strong chewers!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by K9LVR Frustrating
Too big even for my big 110 pound Bernese Mt Dog
Too Frustrating because he can"t bite down on it enough to get the treats out
If you want to order this, buy a smaller size than you normally would..
