  • Super fun treat-dispensing toy!

    By on

    My dog loves this toy! I got the small/medium one for my 15-inch beagle, and it’s the perfect size for him. It’s weighted nicely for a great wobble. The reason I’m giving it four stars instead of five is for three reasons: I wish the hole underneath the cap opened wider for when I use it to serve meals. (I have to feed the kibble in two at a time rather than pouring it.) And the description said the small/medium toy held a cup and a half of food, but I have a hard time getting three quarters of a cup in there. Lastly, the chamber between the cap and the bottom isn’t accessible for cleaning, so you have to use pretty solid treats that don’t flake off inside and run soap and water through it My dog loves this toy!

  • Amazing toy for disabled giant breed dog!!

    By on

    I have a giant breed pyrenees mix who has hip dysplasia. I prefer him to limit his physical movement when possible (especially on tile) but he's still just a puppy and gets bored when we're not actively training. This thing is a LIFE. SAVER. He LOVES IT! The best parts about it are that it's easily fill-able, lasts long because of the second compartment, and doesn't require him to be up and active! If I had to make any changes to it, I'd suggest making the middle (where the green and purple meet) twist off because it's kinda hard to fill from the top and it's tedious to shake the kibble or treats down before use.

  • Awesome Toy

    By on

    This toy is amazing! We use it to feed our 1.5 year old husky as it takes some energy out of her and makes her use her brain a little. We went against the recommendation and got her a size small because she only eats 1 cup of food at a time. This works out fine but don’t do this if you feed large sized kibble. Depending on the brand of food, it’s hard to fit it in this thing. We put the food in through the slot it’s supposed to come out from because it’s bigger. Works out fine, just takes longer to load. It took 5 min to train her how to use this. I tapped on the toy until she hit it. When she hit it with her nose of paw, I yelled good girl and praised her. She caught on immediately.

The toy occupies her for about 5 min but the mental stimulation is worth it and leaves her a little tired and less hyper. To avoid what other reviewers have said about the toy damaging their floors, I take it away when she’s done and pick it up and put it back on the rug if she’s moves it. It’s been about 1 week and she knows that she can only play with it on the rug. It’s also the reason I got the small so there would be less damage if she did end up trying to throw it around! … more

  • Nice but hard to load

    By on

    I Bought this because my 2 year old hound, Isabella, chewed up a similar item made by Kong. I thought this would be better because you can adjust the size of the hole where the food comes out. The large is big enough that Isabella can't kick it under the furniture when she is playing with it. I did not give it a 5 star rating because it is not quick and easy to load like the Kong version. You have to put a few pieces in and shake it down then repeat. The Kong version you just unscrew the bottom, put in the food, screw it back on and it is ready for your dog to work for its meal.

  • Fun toy but top opening too small

    By on

    This is a very entertaining toy for both myself and my 50 lb. lab. I purchased the large size. My only complaint is that the hole under the cap where you can insert kibble is too small by just a little for her food so I have to put it into the side hole only. Seems to defeat the purpose of the screw-on cap. Not a deal breaker but seems both opening should be the same size. This is a heavy/hard plastic toy so if you have a dog that might pick it up and fling it to get the treats out then things in the house could get broken.

  • Brilliant! Best Buy ever!

    By on

    My dog is a food hound. I'm not sure what her life was before me but when it comes to food she is super focused. Most "everlasting" treats that takes a normal dog an hour or two takes her 10-15 mins to figure it out and devour in less than 5. This thing distract her for a very long, long time. I will split her dinner in half and put it in this while writing. Keeps her from distracting me. Only complaint is it's loud in the kitchen floor. But what do you expect when you have a hard heavy plastic ball. It needs to. Just to give it to them and expect to take a nap. Best Buy ever!

  • Was Hopeful But....

    By on

    When I ordered this treat dispensing toy I was so hopeful. My Golden is a voracious chewer who gets bored easily. At first, the dispenser worked as described. My dog loved to chew the top cap as well and when doing so, the cap remained intact. However, after only 2-3 days of chewing and getting his treats, I noticed that the door that covers the dispenser (on bottom of toy) was gone. Either it is lodged inside the toy or he ate it. Now I cannot use it to dispense treats, which was its original purpose. I'd love to have my money back.

    By on

    my dog is very energetic and i dont always have time to walk him. he is also very smart and i was worried he was getting bored and depressed from not having anything mentally stimulating to excite him. this bob-a-lot killed two birds with one stone. after using this toy, he is problem solving and using his smarts to get the treat out. he is also burning his energy chasing this toy around the house lol couldnr be happier with this purchase. i do wish though it came with better instructions so that i could leave them for my dog sitter. they can never figure out how to load the treats in it lol

  • Makes mealtime more stimulating

    By on

    This product is awesome, and was recommended by my pup's trainer as a means of stimulating him mentally more often. It took him a few days to really figure out how to use it and extract all the food, but now he pushes it all over the floor and knocks it with his nose (or with his paws when he's frustrated!). It's not super easy to fill, but using a combination of both holes allows me to get in the amount of food my dog needs for each meal.

  • Thank goodness for this toy!

    By on

    80lb lab-pit power chewer loves this toy. I put cat food in it (his favorite thing) and he will roll this thing around until the treats are gone. Rolls it into a corner then picks it up by the top and brings it to the middle of the room again. At first, he wanted to chew the top maybe because he saw that's where the treats went in. Showed him the roll a few times and no more chewing on it. Finally, 45 minutes without my shadow!
