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.

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.

great Product

This cleverly designed chew toy give loads of time with our 22 week lab. I would recommend this to friends. It is as described and terrific for chewers.

Worked well for my Great Dane and Chihuahua

Bought this a year ago for my chihuahua to chew on as a treat toy and keep him entertained. Of course both my chihuahua and great dane played with it, neither are crazy chewers but my Dane can bite on things pretty rough if food is the motivator, it only just now started getting its first signs of wear, it still has lots of life left but I'm buying a second one so I can prevent them fighting over it. Super excited to get it on my next autoship order, highly recommended for a pup that will only toys if treats are involved

Still figuring it out

My dog hasn't gotten the hang of this yet. It's a nice feature you can cut out the tabs to make it easier, but then you can't make it harder.

treat dispenser

Very disappointed with this toy. It’s difficult to stuff with treats and impossible for dogs to get treats out. My dog lost interest very quickly. Waste of money

Doesn't work for my pup

I think the concept of this dog toy is a good one, but not for my dog. I worked okay on the smaller parts but the larger one was hard for her. She is a smaller dog, 22lbs, may of been the reason. I'm not sure how this may work on large dogs, so this may still be an option. I gave the product 3 stars, because it's just not for my dog.

Sturdy and challenging

This is easy to fill, makes my dog take time to eat versus chowing down. A new favorite that seems like it will last a long time . I would recommend this for dogs of all sizes.

The Smell!!

When I opened my Chewy box the smell was overwhelming! The description states that they add a vanilla scent to disguise the rubber smell. The combination of the rubber and vanilla is awful, strong, and won’t go away. It gave me a headache and made me nauseous within a half hour. I tried several things to get rid of it (dishwasher, baking soda, vinegar) to no avail and now my dishwasher smells like it. In the end I threw it away. I considered returning it, but couldn’t take the smell long enough to package it back up. This may be a wonderful toy, but I’ll never know.
