My lab is almost 11, but still high energy and highly-food motivated. He's had a Kong wobble feeder for years, but I got this for some variety. As many other reviews mention, the yellow cap is highly tempting to chew off. My dog has NEVER attempted to break apart his wobble kong and was trying to chew this one to bits the first go-around. That wouldn't be such a big issue if I only used it when I could supervise him, but this thing is almost impossible to fill! The package says it has two "adjustable" openings, but one is interior, under the yellow cap. That means you basically have to put in kibble/treats one by one, and there is no way to access the main comparment - definitely not something user-friendly for regular feeding. I also think the food caught in the yellow cap that hadn't fallen into the main cavity was what triggered the chewing attempts. Finally, the "adjustable" openings are sticky and hard to adjust, and unless you have microscopic treats, you'll want the openings fully open regardless. Feeder toys like these are a great concept, but this one is a total fail.
My dog LOVES this! She’s a recent rescue and we don’t know her background, but she does not play like most dogs. I needed something to give her a more independent activity to make her feel busy. Toys that involve food are all she’s interested in. I like that the opening at the top and bottom are both adjustable, to make it less or more challenging as needed. Holds a decent amount of kibble. She hears the food rattle inside and gets so excited! This makes her “work” for her food, so much that she’ll sometimes stop for a quick break, smiling the whole time, and go right back to it! This is not something I would just leave her alone with to occupy her time. It’s made with a really tough plastic, but I can see how a dog may try to chew through it. Well worth every penny!
I purchased the large size for my 56 lb, 8 mos. old puppy. He is a chewer! But with all toys, you need to supervise. When he started to chew the yellow cap, I said no or I just picked it up and put it out of reach, he learned will quickly it was a tool for him to enjoy his food at a slower pace. Several reviews talk about the loading area for food is too small, it is designed that way for a reason - if you for instance feed a cup of food, place 1/2 the food in the purple part and the remaining 1/2 stays in the yellow portion - as the toy "bobs" around from the puppy playing with the toy, the food in the yellow portion eventually drops down to the purple part. This gives puppy longer time to enjoy food, hence causing him to eat slower.
We now have 2 of these toys and they are the best when the weather is either icky or too hot to go outside. I fill them with liver treats and when you close the opening a little, it is more challenging for my dogs. No picture since, an iPhone picture is too large? This company also makes awesome other treat toys too.
My senior LOVES this toy! Busy, stimulating fun! Make sure the treats are small so they fit easily. It has adjustable dispensing openings but even at the largest setting, smaller treats are necessary. We use the Nutro Crunchy with Real Peanut Butter or Blueberry Dog Treats and they are perfectly shaped for the right level of difficulty. The toy is wobbly and easy to push around and as it tilts and spins, the treats fall out.
This is fairly durable even with my husky/shepherd puppy. Got it for him when he was a puppy and still holding together after about a year. Only got a slightly chewed on top. Dog still loves it and I love that it gets him some much needed exercise and mental stimulation on cold days.
Kept him busy. He would shake it to get every last treat out! My older dog would eat treat all Joey wanted to do was roll it around and chew it He chewed the little door that controlled how fat treats came out. Then chewed top off. Like I said great while it lasted. Joey is 13 months maybe better for younger puppy
My dog is a pretty heavy chewer and he quickly chewed the top off this, cutting his gums up in the process. I wouldn't recommend this for a strong and curious dog, though it may work well for a dog that is happy to wobble it around and leave well enough alone.
I have 2 Pom puppies and they love this toy. It is really hard to find anything that Tidbit does NOT destroy in a few days, but this one he loves to play with and get treats out of. I gave it a 4 because it is a bit of a chore to refill. but to watch them play with it is so worth it.
My 10-month old puppy loves this toy and keeps her engaged. Problem is, she destroyed the top within three minutes of emptying the treats. Sadly. If your dog is a chewer, this is not for her.
