My dog absolutely loves this. She is very food motivated and loves treat balls but this one is different than her usual treat balls and it's nice to have some variety. I put food in the cavity and then a long thin dental chew under the ropes (sometimes one on each side) and pull the ropes tight. As one reviewer said, you can't put big items under the ropes, but for any type of treat ball you have to get the right sort of treat to put in it for it to work.
Well, I was very excited to try out this toy. I specifically wanted to use it for yak chews, but when it arrived, found that wouldn't work. Only a very specific size of treat actually seems to fit in it and it isn't nearly as adjustable as I was hoping. On top of that, puppy teeth are doing a number on the ropes that actually hold the chew in place, and he isn't even trying to chew on them. It isn't a BAD toy and I will try it with the chew it is advertised with, but it isn't nearly as versatile as I was thinking it would be.
My dog quickly and easily pulled out small Jumbones, chicken tenders, bully sticks, etc. The only treats that last are regular Jumbones or medium sized yaks.
I ordered this for my medium sized collie/german shepherd mix dog who loves all toys, all treats, and, well, everything! She's young and active and I was taking her on a long wilderness camping trip and wanted her to have something new and entertaining. I put a large rolled pork-skin chew under the ropes, which fit securely. She first played with it, then settled in to chew on the treat. It kept her busy for quite awhile. It's a different design - part ball, part rope/tug material, and part chew treat/toy. For my inquisitive and active dog, it was a great purchase.
