  • Chew Toy or Play Toy?

    By on

    My dog enjoys and loves the toy. She carries it from room to room and plays with it even when empty. My three-star rating is because I've only had it for one month and it has already been chewed up quite bad on the top. Not all dogs are quite the chewers like my dog but I did buy a similar version by Kong that has held up over the month better than this one. I purchased the smaller size for my miniature schnauzer and she wasn't detured by the size of the toy. I like that it takes her awhile to get the treat out. Overall it is a great toy to have.

  • Great separation toy

    By on

    The Bob-A-Lot dog toy is perfect. I am always on the lookout for good treat toys to give to my dog when I leave the house. I have a boxer that struggles with the initial separation. Anxiety is common in the boxer breed. I was told from. A trainer told me that anxiety creeps in the minute you leave and most of the time only last for the first 15 minutes after you leave. That being said, treat toys that cause your pooch to work for a treat eliminates that anxiousness right from the beginning. I was surprised how well made and sturdy this to was when I opened the box and used it for the first time. Your dog will love this one. It's like a game, plus it is work for him to take the top off (screwed The Bob-A-Lot dog toy is perfect. I am always on the lookout for good treat toys to give to my dog when I leave the house.

  • Keeps them entertained

    By on

    I have 2 active and relentless chewers. One is a pitbull hound mix and the other is a pitbull cattle dog mix. They both love this toy and have not destroyed it. It is fairly big which I think is a good thing because then the dogs have to nudge it or paw at it opposed to trying to chew it. My pit cattle dog mix is super smart and figured it out right away but still enjoyed it. The other one just followed her along to try to snag some kibble that fell out. I only give it to them periodically but they both enjoy it and it enables me to get some stuff done around the house without them getting in the way. The exit hole does slide open and close so if there is still kibble left, it won't fall out I have 2 active and relentless chewers.

  • A distraction preventing destruction

    By on

    Our dogs are just over a year old and were wreaking havoc on our backyard. Every day we would come home to a new hole or a freshly eaten sprinkler. These toys have changed everything! They seem to provide just enough mental stimulation to prevent the pups from feeling the need to be destructive. We have had them over a month now, and other than one tiny hole once, nothing else has been destroyed. Amazing! My only complaint is that my one dog who is a big-time chewer, chewed through the top on one the very first day. The second one is still intact however, and I think this is because he no longer has that destructive urge because of the effect of the toy. What is even better is after sending Our dogs are just over a year old and were wreaking havoc on our backyard. Every day we would come home to a new hole or a freshly eaten sprinkler.

  • great toy for determined dogs

    By on

    I have one ADD dog that couldn't care less to play with treat puzzles, and the other dog LOVES them and could spend all day working for a little kernel to fall out of that thing. These toys are durable (and hard to chew up or carry off because of their shape). The treat dispensing slot allows you to control the size/amount of treats ejected (which makes the dog work harder or less for the treats). The only possibly negative thing I can think of is they might be hard to clean inside...but dogs probably won't care too much. I got one small toy and one large toy and they were very affordable compared to some other expensive brands that aren't as cleverly designed.

  • Keeps My Border Collie Entertained!

    By on

    My border collie is young, and needs to stay busy. But he loses interest in most toys pretty quickly. He's food motivated, so I thought perhaps something like this would keep his attention and keep him occupied for a while. It does the job!! He'll stay occupied with it for over 30 min at a time, and he'll even carry it around the house. I'd definitely recommend for a food-motivated dog to keep them interested for a while!

  • Mentally Stimulating

    By on

    This is by far the best interactive, food-dispensing toy I've found for my active mini Aussie! I purchased this product on the recommendation of a canine behavioral consultant who observed my dog. She suspected that my dog was not getting enough mental stimulation and thus using her extra energy on bad behaviors (e.g. barking at the window). Now, my dog spends extra time (and energy) trying to figure out this dinnertime puzzle, and she LOVES it!! I feed her about 75% of her meals in this toy, and use the other 25% for training. Already, we've noticed big improvements in her behavior.

  • Nice puzzle toy

    By on

    My labs will only play with toys that involve food so these were a hit! Only real problem is my dogs are so nuts for food they shove them around my laminate floor like maniacs and barely give the toy time to bob up and down!! Also they tend to drool everywhere as they shove them too! But overall toy works as shown and helps occupy their time for a little bit. Like that it is adjustable opening to dispense food but the little piece that adjusts is cheap and gets stuck easily. Otherwise good toy.

  • Weebles for Dogs

    By on

    My 60lb food motivated pup loves this toy and figured out how to make it tip over to deliver her treats pretty quickly. I made a mistake though, I left her unsupervised for about 5 minutes, which turns out was 4 minutes too long. She ran out of treats and decided to chew the top off of it instead. It still works but now it's got rough edges that I don't like. This would be a far better toy if the top was made out of the softer rubber Starmark uses in their everlasting treat ball. She's had one of those for 4 years and hasn't destroyed it yet!

  • This is Grrrrreat for Ridgebacks

    By on

    FINALLY, a stimulating treat or kibble machine that flexes my Rhodesian's brain as well as muscles! It is virtually indestructible. My boy is 3, now, purchased the large for him as a puppy and he STILL has it....I place kibbles in it with the bottom opening just large enough to release one IF he works at it! I am ordering another because he likes to carry it around by the yellow cap. He is a smart, innovative dog and it did not take him long to learn...a few minutes....I am hoping Starmark manufactures more hard core mentally stimulating toys such as this one for the tough dogs....EASY TO CLEAN: Remove yellow cap. Fully open both openings and flush entire unit with hot water...very hot FINALLY, a stimulating treat or kibble machine that flexes my Rhodesian's brain as well as muscles!
