For Refill Treats: [Click here]
my dog has lots of treat dispensing toys and for some reason with this one it just really frustrates her and she doesn't like to do it on her own she also starts chewing on the hard plastic which worries me (she's not a big chewer)
It took my dog less than a day to pick it up and drop it. The toy did not break surprisingly. However, it did open where it screws in the middle. Not a good enrichment toy for dogs clever enough to find their own quicker way to the treats inside.
My dog LOVES this! I have two dogs and one can’t figure it out, which is great because that’s the dog that steals all of the toys. Our older dog suddenly got this younger brother that steals everything except this toy that has FOOD in it, win win for him. The cap of the mushroom is an easy place for him to pick it up and he slams it on the floor even though that doesn’t help. He loves the treat puzzle ball but it’s too big for his mouth and rolls under the couch and low tables. He will still try to play with this even when it’s empty. Gave new life and energy to my 13 year old grump! He even plays fetch with it, and brings it to me to help make it easier or refill it. I would absolutely buy this again and again. I’ve ordered a second because the mechanism that limits treat release snapped off and won’t stay on, but he won’t let me throw it out (he fished it out of the toys to be donated bag) so I’ll give him this one with bigger treats.
Started out fun, pup dropped it and popped the mushroom part off. Took all of a few seconds to chew the section it screws onto. The bottom is still useable but not a challenge.
My dog only played with this twice and chewed the edge slightly, leaving hard sharp spikes. I had to throw it away
I’ve got a lab super chewer who wolfs all her food down without chewing if given the chance, so I grab whatever slow feeders I can to see if they stand up to her. This one does. You have to close it super tight to get it to stay closed, otherwise it unscrews while being knocked around, but I rarely have that issue anymore. It’s got three settings for food sizes, I find anything more than the middle setting and the food just pours out, and it comes out a bit quick on the middle one but the smallest setting is too small for her food (victor) and most treats, so we comprise. This feeder is her favorite out of our collection because she can pick it up by the ‘mushroom head’ and whip it around/throw it. It doesn’t seem all that sturdy when you first get it, but mine survives regularly getting screwed together very tightly, thrown into walls and furniture and the floor, and twice now thrown down an entire flight of hardwood stairs. I’ve had it a couple years now and even with a few scratches it still cleans and functions well, I would absolutely recommend this even for dogs tough on everything.
Magic Mushroom Treat Dispenser is a fun, mildly challenging meal delivery toy. It is designed to wobble, however the mushroom base is smaller than the cap and not properly weighted to return upright. As a result, it spends most of the time on its side, resembling other round treat dispensers. Our 20lb frenchie gets most of the treats by biting down on the mushroom cap and flinging it across the room. On the plus side, the dispensing hole adjustment lever is a nice feature. Pup likes it. We will keep it in rotation.
Charlie is having a difficult time figuring this one out. And honestly I am too. It seems it needs to be flipped upside down for the food to come out of the stem and into the mushroom cap and then right side up for the food to fall to the floor. The first meal is still in it. But the cat seems to get a few kibble out every now an again. I’ll probably keep it just in case she tries to figure it out one day. The Egg is a better fit for now.
My pug will not even try to figure this out no matter what I do. ..not a good interactive toy I don't think.
Our girl is very active and tends to get bored easily, which leads to destructive chewing. This toy has really helped curve her boredom. It's really nice because it takes her a little while to get all of the kibble out, and you can change the size of the drop holes so it makes the puzzle more challenging. It was much bigger than I expected it to be, but it works great for our 60lb hound mix.
