Questions & Answers

12 Customer Questions

What do the dogs have to do in order to receive a treat? Like roll the ball a certain way? And the treat comes out? Or?
Answer by ChewyAug 26, 2018
Dogs can nudge, roll, and chase the ball to try to release the tasty bites inside.

If large dog accidentally chew and swallow its part, it is digestible?
Answer by ChewyAug 23, 2017
The ball is made from a hard, durable plastic that dissembles for cleaning purposes. It is not edible. It is recommended to supervise your pet during play time.

Does removing the pieces make it easier?
Answer by ChewyMay 13, 2020
This ball has interior pieces that may be removed to adjust the difficulty level of getting the treats out.

Is this dishwasher-safe?
Answer by ChewyMar 22, 2019
It is recommended to hand wash this toy with warm, soapy water.

Best toy to keep 'em busy

My chihuahua terrier mix is a chowhound. I fill this with his food and it keeps him occupied for a while. He needs a bit of activity so it helps with that and mind stimulation too as he comes up with different strategies to try to get the food out. I have lick mats, bullies, other treat balls, puzzles, forage mats, etc! And this is the best of all. I bought the small one for my 14 pounder. Note he is not an avid chewer/does not destroy toys but he did bite off part of a rubber treat ball before I bought this one. With this one there are no signs of that happening. It's very hard plastic so with small dogs it seems it'd be difficult for them to break it apart.

Slows down eating and entertains

My guy loves his new ball! He loudly bangs it into the walls all day. He's not the sharpest knife in the drawer, so I have it set as level one and it is just challenging enough. He's not a chewer, so no issues with him destroying it. However, I'm confused about why the part you unscrew is two pieces, it easily could've been one and would have been easier for the human to put it back together. <shrug> Overall, in this house it's a win!

it’s okay for smaller breed dogs

At first I thought this was great. It kept my beagle puppy entertained for a good amount of time but it was too small. I couldn’t put too much kibble in it at a time so I had to refill plus if he would hit it agains a baseboard too hard or pounce on it hard enough it pops open. I eventually glued it together and just shake the treats into the lower compartment. I think with a small dog or maybe just a calmer dog it would be great

Design change-used to be great

When I first got this for my cattle/border collie mix it was great. It lasted us about 6 months before I needed to replace it. They recently had a redesign of the product, because small dogs were getting their mouth stuck in the opening. while I understand the change, it now doesn't work at all for us. I've had to replace this twice in the last month.. and I only did that because it's my dog's favorite item. It constantly splits the top off in half, and it has small plastic strips that cause my dog to rip and pull it off. But I'll be searching for something else now, as I can't keep paying to replace this. Might work well for small dogs that can't fit their mouth around it.

Confusing to dogs and humans alike

I also have the pet IQ orange treat ball with the adjustable slider as comparison, and I really like that. I thought this was going to be similar, and that it would work well. However, I was mistaken. It says that it is adjustable, but neither of the instructions, nor the video tells you exactly how to adjust it. The only way I think it can be adjusted is by taking out one or two of the desks. However, when you take them out, it unbalance is the weight of the ball, making it harder for the dog to get the treat out of the hole. Furthermore, I am baffled by why they chose to make the top section split into two. Maybe I’m missing something here and it’s actually a brilliant design, but all I know is what I have observed: my dogs get frustrated by this toy since they can’t get the treats out of the hole in the intended manner, and they find it is much easier to dismantle the toy. I think that the split top design makes it too easy for the dog to dismantle. I am a product designer myself (admittedly I design digital products for humans, not dog toys) but I can’t understand why the toy was made this way if it just makes it easy to break and hard to use. Did they even do usability testing on the prototype before rolling it out? If there is a way to use the toy that my dogs and I are missing, the company should outline that in the product instructions or make a video. Not including a photo since I see plenty of other customers photos with the dismantled ball.

Great idea, poor execution

Loved the concept of this, especially with the different advancement levels as your dog gets used to one. I have a medium/large size dog. He's a one year old lab mix at maybe 55lbs. He loved the toy, but within 2-3 uses, it started chipping plastic pieces. This toy isn't great if you have non-carpeted floors as the impact causes the top to unscrew pretty easily and tear apart within minutes, exposing all of the treats and leaving four big plastic pieces for your dog to chew if he's a chewer (two quarter spheres, a half sphere, and the inside section). This toy would be of better quality if the ball was only two pieces instead of three (the quarter sphere top makes it easier for your dog to rip the to toy apart to grab all the treats at once) or the two half spheres locked tighter.

Put that noodle to work

At first Amadeus kept trying to bite the ball instead of moving it around to get the treats out of it. We put in some of his kibble instead of treats and it's great to tire out your pup. However, Amadeus did get frustrated very quickly with this one since the treats are on a multi level and he's new to dispensing toys.

Not for woodfloors

We have a 50 lb doodle that tosses this thing around on our wood floors and against the wall and it is extremely loud and annoying. Hard plastic in the design was not the way to go. Going to trash this and get a soft plastic or rubbery replacement that is easier on the ears and floors.

keeps him entertained

I have a 3 month old golden retriever that is too smart for his own good! I’ve been trying to find something that will keep him occupied for a while and help stimulate his brain. I found it! I broke up two little puppy bone treats and put it in the ball and he rolled it all around and got mad because because nothing was happening! So I helped him and showed him how it worked and that was all it took! He’s chased that thing all over the house! I’m not sure why one side of it is two halves, but so far, it hasn’t been a problem for us.

Doesn't roll well

Spins more than rolls so it is difficult to get the treats out (even for me:)), almost like its bottom heavy, but my foster dog still enjoys it. He has also figured out how to but it open when he gets frustrated. I have tried multiple configurations for the food/pieces but haven't figured out a solution.
