I have a pretty destructive high energy dog, with all his toys i started at the easiest level and worked up to harder difficulties. Working slowly prevented my dog from getting frustrated and destroying a toy, and also naturally taught him to take more frequent breaks if the difficulty was too high. With this toy I jumped to adding long jerky treats that were hard to access right away which caused my dog to treat this object more like a kong than an exercise toy. He did already begin to rip it apart, but stepping back and adding easier to remove treats promotes him to roll it around versus chewing it to pieces which tells me to move more slowly
Bought two so each dog could have their own. They absolutely love this toy and it will keep them busy for awhile. No issues with them chewing through the ball or destroying it. Bought the medium because it was on sale, but they’ve played with the large before at a friend’s house. I think any size would work- just a matter of treat capacity.
We have a one-and-a-half-year-old labradoodle who loves to chew and enjoys treat dispensers. Within five minutes of receiving this ball, she had chewed off large chunks. We took it away from her as soon as we notice it. How can a treat-dispensing toy be so destructible? I have tried to upload an image of the destroyed ball but have been unsuccessful.
I got this for my 50 lb dog for Christmas. She's getting up there in age (15 next month!) so I'm always looking for ways to keep her engaged and active. Usually she doesn't like rubber toys, preferring plush. But she loves this! She very quickly figured out how to roll it around to get the treats out. However they don't come out super-fast, which is great because it keeps her engaged longer. I'm really glad we bought this. It's a great stimulating toy for our dog.
Great toy. nice heavy duty. we have a treat crazed big chewer. it has held up well. However, small treats fall out immediately. bigger treats get stuck under the rim inside and don't come out at all. which is fine for us, cuz it keeps her busy longer.
Kibble comes out at first but the enormous lip inside the ball will not let the last couple pieces out, even with me trying to press on the toy lip to shake the pieces out. My dog tried to lick out the kibble, which just made the kibble inside wet and stick inside the ball. There appears to be no way to clean this toy, so the soggy kibble pieces are stuck inside the ball. Basically it is a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. This thing is not sanitary for more than one use.
People this isn’t made for a chew toy! My dog is a chewer. Once he gets the treats out I refill or put it away but it’s great to watch him get the treats out.
My 2 year old YorkiePoo destroyed this ball in 20 minutes. If you have a chewer, this may not be the best.
My dog loves this treat ball! he has never tried to tear it up and with a little encouragement, learned how to roll it to get the treats out. I can fit about a half cup of kibble in the ball. It doesn't last very long though, he can get the treats out fairly quickly.
My puppy loves this ball for a little snack fun. I fill it with kibbles and he loves it.
