There’s more than one way to have fun with the Petstages Challenge Ball Treat Dispensing Dog Toy. First, you can stash your dog’s favorite treat inside and challenge him to the tastiest game of hide-and-go-seek ever, or you can just use it as a good ol’ chase and fetch toy. Made with three levels of adjustable difficulty, it keeps your dog guessing and engaged every time you add a new treat. Plus, it’s made from 100% natural, durable rubber that is safe and sturdy for your precious pooch.

Key Benefits
  • Treat-dispensing toy offers a mental challenge for bored dogs to release the reward.
  • Features three adjustable levels of difficulty to keep him guessing how to release the treat.
  • Also great for a good ol’ fashioned game of chase and fetch for two-in-one fun.
  • Made from 100% natural rubber with a blue and red color combo that is easy to spot.
  • Excellent choice to keep dogs physically and mentally stimulated.

Every dog plays differently and, since not all toys are created equal, it’s always best to keep a close watch on your pup in case things get ruff. Supervised play will help toys last longer and most importantly keep your pal safe. No dog toy is truly indestructible, so always remove the toy from playtime if pieces begin to break off.

About Petstages Toys for Dogs

Chew the Right Thing

Chew the Right Thing

Focus your dog’s natural chewing instincts and keep him chewing on the right things with Petstages chews. Chewing helps puppies deal with teething pain, and it helps adult dogs keep their teeth clean and exercise their jaw. It can also help relieve anxiety, boredom and frustration. Petstages chews help you create a safe and healthy outlet for all your dog’s chewing instincts.

Petstages Dogwood and Alternative Chews

Petstages makes alternatives to wood, rawhide and antler chews that let your pup chew without causing you worry. Their puppy chews include the Mini Cool Chew, which can be frozen for soothing relief, and the Mini Dental Rope Chew, with knots and rubber rings. Petstages also offers Orka chews for tough chewers.

Durable Wood Alternative

The Dogwood chew stick is made in the U.S.A. from a blend of natural wood fiber and safer synthetic materials.

Puppy Chews

Petstages Puppy Chews have textures to massage sore gums and canvas streamers help clean teeth.

Orka Toys

Petstages Orka chew toys are made for power chewers. They stand up to tough chewing and help reduce boredom and destructive behavior.

The Real Wood Dogwood Toy

The Dogwood chew toy contains real, natural wood, so it smells like a stick fresh off the tree! It has the real wood texture and taste your dog loves, without the threat of splinters.

The Real Wood Dogwood Toy

Great for Interactive Play

With a shape ideal for throwing and carrying, the Dogwood stick is ready for some interactive fun! Take it outdoors and toss it to your pup for retrieval training or a quick game of fetch.

    Engaging and durable

    By jessb on Jul 18, 2020

    Our dog gets excited whenever she sees the Challenge Ball, and enjoys working to get the kibble inside. The opening can be set to one of three different sizes. No damage after several months of use, although we remove it when the ball is empty.

    Best Challenge Toy

    By Abee on Dec 24, 2019

    Every challenge toy I have previously received was boring.This treat ball is so much fun. I throw it around and roll it to get my treats(just my regular food mixed with a couple of training treats). I know mom and dad like it too, they laugh as they watch me bouncing around the room sniffing after treats. Any playful pup will have fun with this toy!

    By Cindy on Feb 21, 2020

    Please bring thesis back! My dog loves this, and although he has chewed it a bit, he loves playing with it. I need one (or two) in reserve for him!!!

    Not a challenge

    By SusanJ on Nov 18, 2019

    I was excited to get this toy since I had purchased a hard ball one with adjustable levels of difficulty and Eddie LOVED it. It was super noisy so I thought this soft rubber one would be quieter (which it was). The problem is that the treats just fall out even on the smallest setting. Not challenging at all for my 9 month old pup who requested a refill after rolling it around for just a few moments..... I would not recommend this (unless you filled it with larger than kibble size treats). Get the PET ZONE hard plastic adjustable one. Well worth the bucks!

    Great buy and my dogs favorite

    By Steph on Dec 26, 2019

    I purchased a few treat dispensing balls...by far, this is the most durable and my dog's fav! The others were made of hard plastic and my dog had the ball in pieces within an hour. Also on a tile floor, this ball is quiet unlike the hard plastic ball.

    Great for getting energy out!

    By Kathryn on Nov 21, 2019

    This toy is super great for any pup that likes to inhale food. We use this along with a puzzle feeder (1/4 his food in this toy, the rest in the feeder). It takes longer for him to eat and also is mentally stimulating. We're going to try and save it for that really cold weather when we spend less time outside!

    Love it. Lots of fun!

    By DachshundOwner on Dec 26, 2019

    Our little guy loves this toy. The level of difficulty allows us to put small things like kibble and larger things like biscuits and beggin strips. Would buy this again! Very sturdy as well.

    Oily & didn't last 5 minutes

    By Rebel on Nov 11, 2019

    There seemed to be oily residue on it right out of the package. My one year old rott played with it for about 30 seconds before deciding it was just easier to chew through the rubber to get to the treats inside. Would probably be great for small breeds or designer dogs... not for rottweilers or power chewers.

    Pretty good

    By Renie on Dec 22, 2019

    Made of a medium thick rubber. Not as durable as a Kong but still pretty tough. Doesn't take very long for either of my pups to empty it. But the still like to play with the ball.

    My dogs new favorite toy!

    By Kwaxberg on Nov 7, 2019

    My puggle really doesn't play with toys, but he absolutely LOVES this ball.. he's very food motivated and a real sniffer... lol . if you're looking for something to entertain your pup, this is it! it has three different levels of difficulty depending on what sort of treat you are using, and is made of durable rubber.
