You have to find the “right” treats for this toy

I got the largest size of this for my Bloodhound mix. She’s an extremely smart dog and gets bored easily, so I try to get her interactive toys. It’s really great! However, you may have to try a few different shapes and sizes of treats to see what works best. If they’re too big they won’t come out, if they’re too small it’s too easy. I only gave 4 instead of 5 stars because the smaller chamber is kind of useless. No matter what kind of treats I put in that one she can’t get them out. The best treats for the largest size are broken up stick-type treats stuffed into the big and medium chambers. I think the negative reviews are for the small version of this toy, so maybe only buy the large size for a big dog. It’s a great toy for them.

Great treat dispenser

This works great to keep my dogs busy for a short time getting their meals. The openings are small so I find kibble works but not even the smallest biscuits will come out once inserted. My dogs both enjoy rolling this around for kibble and the material is soft enough that it doesn't damage my furnishings. This toy has a vanilla scent which is not unpleasant, but it is a very strong scent. I find it's best when not used in a small room or near where people are eating.

Tough toy!

This toy is a great toy for rough dogs. She hasn't figured out how to get the cookies out yet! Other toys with somewhat the same design were no challenge for her at all. She is quite proud of this one, however and carries it all around.

LOVE this dispenser

I have three intense chewers who love puzzle dispensers but how torn all of them apart within a week. I’ve tried 3-4 other brands that my dogs were able to tear open. This has lasted MONTHS without tearing or breaking. Love this

love this toy!!

Olive got this the other day and spent 2 HOURS totally engrossed! I filled the pockets with a variety of snacks and it was great! I love pet safe chew toys and this exceeded my expectations!

Toy was torn apart on first use and under 10 minutes. My dog was super excited and really enjoyed the toy but I'm more than disappointed at the lack of durability. He didn't even finish getting the treats out.

great toy for fun breakfast

This is a fun one he flips around with his snoot to get the food to come out. I had to cut down the things inside quite a bit cause he’d get a little impatient with it. Haven’t let him sit and chew on it for fear that it won’t last, but it’s perfect for what we bought it for!

Best Brain Stimulation

Tough toy for hard chewing dogs. It keeps my dogs attention for hours. Not easy to clean, but can use a baby bottle brush.

By GracieJamesMama on Mar 24, 2023

highly recommend

Gracie James has destroyed every treat dispensing toy I have bought her, but this one has held up really well! It dispenses the treats slowly enough to keep her busy for awhile and is super sturdy. She has chewed on it but has not be able to tear it apart (it still looks fairly new)

Just Strange

We bought this based on the reviews and our dog hasn't been interested in the least. It's also very awkward to prepare given the different sizes and uneven design.
