As a bully stick holder, it worked alright. Definitely helped my dogs (30 lb corgis) hold the stick while they chewed, but they were easily able to pull it out at the end and eat the whole stick, so if keeping your dog from eating the nub end of the bully stick is your goal, it might not be ideal (thicker bullies might work better, although the ones we used were not particularly thin). My dogs also really like this as a toy to chew on and toss around, which surprised me (we have another ball-like bully stick holder they couldn’t care less about if it doesn’t have a bully in it). Only problem is that this ball has a little rubber loop on one side (why?) that they easily chewed off. I took it away and cut off the rest, but it could be an ingestion hazard for an unsupervised dog.
I purchased the item for my 15 week old puppy and was disappointed that it did not hold treats as described. However, my puppy enjoys bouncing the SodaPup Cross Bones on the floor which keeps her entertained.
I purchased these to prevent my French bulldogs from swallowing rawhide or bully sticks. These are the size of a plum for reference. So glad I bought these!
