  • I love these.

    By on

    I've had two of these in the last decade. I bought my first one for my Labrador I had when I was in college. I filled it with kibble and he loved the puzzle of it. We'd play with it empty, tossing it around the yard, he adored this thing. I never had to replace it, he had it till the day he died. I had never tried the treat stick for it, as he was contented without. I recently bought the medium for my female Cardigan Corgi. Unlike my Pembroke, who isn't a chewer, and is completely chill. she has a lot of anxiety. We've tried a lot. In seven years, we've been through so many toys, treats, chews. She likes to chew, really enjoys the Starmark chew disks. I did buy her the hydrant and I've had two of these in the last decade. I bought my first one for my Labrador I had when I was in college.

On a whim, remembering my lab, I bought this with the treat stick/wheels, and I did a test run during a rain storm while I was home. She ran off onto the couch with it, nestled in and gnawed happily for two hours. Anxiety was very low. Treat stick/wheels, throw a few pieces of kibble in there, She's happy. I can give it to her when I'm leaving the house, knowing she's going to work through the worst of the anxiety, and, it's been great for both of us. Large was great for my Lab. (English Lab) Medium is great for my Corgi. (Standard size, corgi, beagle,etc) … more

  • Great small treat dispenser

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I love this. It is a great and quiet, soft type ball that dispenses treats. I put my puppy's kibble or other small training treats inside and he can roll it all over the place for the treats to dispense and it's quiet ! Love it ! It also in the area where the treats come out has little pieces you can cut to accommodate larger treats if necessary. I only cut 1 and left the rest intact and it dispensed just perfect for my dog. A great deal !

  • She LOVES it-EXERCISE Mind SMELLS GREAT

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    Our 4 yr old recently Adopted Aussie girl absolutely LOVEs this ball. She gobbled her food in less than 15 seconds. We use this along with the Outward Hound Mini slow Feeder Bowls and both EXCELLENT they Work. She absolutely loves getting her Goodie ball and will work it for half hour and come back for more. Thankful to have found replacement on Chewy if she loses it. VERY durable and easy to rinse, It smells like Vanilla very pleasant nad natual not rubbery. Wish we found for our now passed elderly corgi girl who hated Kongs and rubbery toys. My suggestion is DO NOT cut the tabs off!! We did only one to HElp and makes food slip out too easily and can't undo! She VERY quickly Our 4 yr old recently Adopted Aussie girl absolutely LOVEs this ball.

Block the ends with large treat or we use Sweet potato sliver and a few cutup Ziwipeak dehydrated jerky type treats whateer is fave with kibble. Her newest kibble Evangers is VERY VERY Small and slips out even faster so have to add larger pieces to it, it makes her not try as hard. Do try it.... Thanks Starmark and Chewy! Working for food and Mental mind exercise is VERY important as well as physical for all pup/cats /animals. Active thinking pups help to tire them out makes pup more satisfied. especially those who get bored quickly and create their own fun! Vary the type feeder and toys.. Herding dog approved! … more

  • Almost indestructible!

    By on

    We adopted an American Bulldog that needed a long lasting toy. We found this ball at another retailer (before I knew about Chewy of course) and our dog absolutely LOVED it! It lasted for at least 2 years before it finally caved under the pressure of powerful jaws and jillions of hours of being thrown. I was so happy to find this ball on Chewy for way less than what I had paid at the retailer. So now we are back business with lots of play time!

  • Keeps them busy

    By on

    We've only had this ball for a little over 2 weeks now and so far so good, I only use it when I have to leave the house, I put treats in it to keep my dogs entertained, we do not use this as a play toy so I put the ball up as soon as I get back home. My dogs are real quick to tear up toys usually within a couple hours but this is still in great shape so far! I have 3 Boxers, 2 are mine and 1 I'm fostering.

  • One of the best!

    By on

    This ball is one of my favorites for my toy-destroyer. She loves it too. She plays with it daily and each ball has lasted months - great value. My pup likes to carry the ball around in her mouth and squeeze it, no treats required. We do use it as a treat ball too, usually with the Halo Healthsome bone-shaped treats from Chewy (Milkbones work well too). Here's how: Squeeze the ball to make the opening wider, pop the treat inside, and give to your dog. The dog has to chew on the ball to break the treat into pieces and make the pieces fall out. This took our pup a while to learn (she got her first ball when we first brought her home, and she had to grow into it), but once she got it, she really This ball is one of my favorites for my toy-destroyer.

We all have large dogs and the largest size ball. … more

  • Everything gets stuck

    By on

    My dog likes to get his hard food out of a snack ball. I bought this one because I read it was soft; however, the material can be a problem because my dog sheds and all his hair sticks to it. So after my dog rolls it around all over the house, it has his hair stuff stuck all over it; gross. So we have to clean it every time we put more food in it.

  • Waiting to see...

    By on

    Just bought this one, and I'm waiting to see how the dogs like it. Ball is a nice size and I've put small training treats and kibble in it. My older dog hasn't showed a lot of interest yet, but she loves the orange Bento Balls. My puppy likes to roll this around and get it lost behind the couch. :)

  • Extremely Tough Ball

    By on

    This ball is TOUGH. My German Shorthaired Pointer has destroyed many chew toys and balls. This ball is different. It has lasted 1 month now and that's with him literally gnawing on it! I keep inspecting it, waiting to see it's starting to lose shape or show signs of wear, but it still looks brand new. When I need to keep him occupied, I throw a few treats in the center and it actually takes him time to get them out. This is our new favorite toy!

  • So far so good (with help)

    By on

    I had to cut ONE prong on each side that holds the kibble in. Otherwise not enough food was coming out and I wanted it to be rewarding not frustrating. I read a lot of reviews before I bought it of some who cut them all off and it was too much. It really just depends on the size of your dog food. The smallest pieces of my dog's kibble are .25" while just a few irregular shaped chunks are an inch (from the longest ends). Even though my dog is a Miniature Schnauzer I got the large ball. To prevent his frustration I plan on cutting those largest pieces in half next time because those wouldn't come out until I squeezed them out for him. Also I took the time to show him how it works with my "Paw" I had to cut ONE prong on each side that holds the kibble in.

I MADE SURE HE WAS HUNGRY AND HADNT EVEN GIVEN HIM TREATS for hours so that he would be persistent. After a five minute session and later on a ten minute session he started doing it on his own. This one meal was our first attempt and I would consider it a success. If your dog "just isn't interested" I would suggest trying some of the things I mentioned. … more
