Smarter Toys IQ Treat Ball Dog ToyBy Smarter Toys
About This Item
- Helps keep your dog mentally and physically stimulated as she plays. The 3-inch ball is paw-fect for smaller dogs (not intended for toy dog breeds) and the 4-inch ball is a great option for larger dogs.
- Your dog gets smarter as she plays with the interactive dog toy and dog puzzle ball. She will learn how to roll the ball to get yummy treats or kibble to fall out. You can even adjust the difficulty level!
- Crafted from hard plastic that disassembles for hassle-free cleaning. Simply rinse the toy with warm water and dry after use.
- Designed to limit the number of treats your canine companion eats, while encouraging extended playtime with her new favorite dog puzzle toy. Always supervise your paw-tner while in use.
- Promotes slower active eating, which makes this toy a great alternative to slow feeder dog bowls, lick mats for dogs and snuffle mats for dogs.

Great for enrichment
Our two dogs and all our visiting foster dogs loves this puzzle ball. The adjustable (and removable) inner piece allows adjustable challenge depending on the size of treat or kibble you are putting in. Has held up well after getting slammed against the floor, baseboards, furniture. The dogs can sometimes pick up the ball but with light supervision we have had no issues with cracking or breaking.
Great toy to keep my dog entertained
This treat ball is great!! My dog will push it around for a long time. He looks so cute hitting the ball with his paw. And he's always really happy when a treat comes out. We have a large one at home and a small one at work to keep him busy while we're working. It's really durable too. He'll bat it across the hardwood floor and inevitably it'll bounce down the stairs and is still totally fine. You can adjust the inside divider to make the opening smaller making it harder to get the treats out. Highly recommend.
my dogs love this toy!
My senior JRT doesn't go for all the walks that my younger dog and I go on. He's also always ready to eat. I put a helping of his food in this ball and give it to him as a distraction while I take the other dog for a walk; killing two birds with one stone! It has held up well for the few weeks that I've had it. Both dogs use it and enjoy it!
This is an awful, junky toy
This toy was delivered today and I have already thrown it out. It is awful, terrible, and I will never, ever be stupidly suckered into buying something recommended by Wirecutter again. (That's why this toy is sold out. Many people are obviously as stupid as I was.) The toy kept falling apart when my dog rolled it (she got the point of it immediately), the plastic is cheap and junky, the top part is in two pieces that fall apart repeatedly, and even though the price has been reduced, it's still overpriced for what it is. I am so sorry I bought it. I have a much better treat-dispensing toy made of thick, quality rubber that I bought several years ago, and if i could read the name on it, I would recommend it in a hearbeat, if they still make it. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS.
Served the Purpose
We were trying to find something that would motivate our dog to chase something and this seems to be it. The plastic is quite durable being that he slams it against the pavers and the walls in the yard.
My dog loves it!
My dog loves this treat ball! It distracts him while we are eating. It’s only a problem when he chases it under a piece of furniture!
Entertaining for my dog
Our lab/pit caught on real quick how to use this ball. She loves it! I’ve just been filling with her dry kibble
great concept - will be ordering a larger one
Great concept. Adjustable inside to adjust to food size; dissasembles for easy cleaning. I think this one was defective because when I went to unscrew it the second time, one slide cracked. But I love the concept and will be purchasing the larger size (think that will work better for our needs).
Not worth it
This item fell apart easily, was difficult to get back together, and is not made well for big dogs. There are other treat ball options more sturdy....this is not one of them.
Not as good as earlier design
While we love the IQ balls and have been buying them over the years - this model was extremely hard to open and the way it is made the top splits in half which if you don’t have it on tight it will break apart as it rolls . Not overly happy with it but it works
