  • First Interactive Toy

    By on

    This was our one year old, 50lb Goldendoodle's first interactive toy & we are hooked! We moved from an apartment to a house a few months ago and our dog recently started chewing things after the move. We have been trying to distract his new chewing obsession with toys instead of things like my pottery barn rug :'( This toy was a HUGE hit!!! He was more entertained by it than any of his normal chew toys/deer antlers. It kept him occupied for HOURS throughout the day! I was able to get lots of cooking and cleaning done before a party we hosted Saturday night. Then we gave it to him at the party and it kept him entertained for almost half the football game! It was much bigger than I expected This was our one year old, 50lb Goldendoodle's first interactive toy & we are hooked!

I was able to get lots of cooking and cleaning done before a party we hosted Saturday night. Then we gave it to him at the party and it kept him entertained for almost half the football game! It was much bigger than I expected, almost the size of his head and a little heavy but our dog figured it out in no time! The bottom purple part is softer with a rubber coating so it won't scratch up your floors. Our dog can pick it up by the yellow cap and bring it upstairs or to another room no problem. He's also learning how to unscrew it though, sneaky pup!! It's definitely his new favorite toy! … more

  • This toy is Fantastic for my Beagle!

    By on

    My senior beagle princess is still young at heart and in soul, she gets into everything as is the age old tale of this mischievous breed! She also suffers through some separation anxiety when no one is home, which is a part of what has driven me on the search to find things to help her cope and remain the happy pupper I've always loved. The Bob-A-Lot has so far been a life saver! Typically, my baby wouldn't even consider touching a toy; she is Extremely food motivated; but I couldn't find anything that she could eat that was long lasting other than cow hooves and other such things (Which stink up the house to high heaven and make for some rather testy room mates).

Toys made of softer material than the bob-a-lot that were meant to hold treats just served to challenge her to rip the toy apart instead of working out how to get the treats. The Bob-a-lot is rounded enough and hard enough that she hasn't been able to chew through it and has actually begun learning the trick to getting the treat, actually PLAYING with it, tail wagging like a hurricane, happy as a dog! … more

  • Awesome toy idea but needs some durability help

    By on

    This is a wonderful interactive toy for my always food focused chocolate lab, I love that it keeps him occupied for at least an hour or until all the food has been dispensed. The part of this toy that saddens me greatly is that my lab was able to get the cap off already after only owning it for about two weeks...because of this my dog chewed the upper ridge of the top of the toy and now the cap won't go back on which makes this toy useless and makes me and my lab a little dissatisfied and conflicted on how to rate this toy overall.

  • GREAT TOY FOR OUR BOY

    By on

    We have a male flat coated retriever, named Jazz...and he loves this toy. Jazz is a very fast eater...and we have found this is a great way to slow him down..and make him work for his meals. We also use his food as treats. We take a bit from his regular meal amount, and use it as a treat. Frozen peas work well too..or diced carrots. He pushes it all around the house..and it doesn't damage the floors or walls. He also gives it to us when he wants us to fill it...HERE MOM../..DAD..PUT SOMETHING IN THIS!!

  • If your dog is smart, skip it

    By on

    I had such high hopes for this treat puzzle. Reviews were great and I thought it would keep my pittie boy occupied for a while each day. Wrong! In less than 5 minutes, he figured out how to get the dispensing door wide open by sticking a tooth in the opening and pulling. Treats are out within 30 seconds. I've tried using larger treats but once he gets that door open, doesn't matter. This is a fantastic idea and it seems to keep a lot of dogs occupied according to reviews. But I have a feeling my guy can't be the first dog to crack the code on getting the treasure out right away. Goodbye $12! :(

  • Good Toy, But...

    By on

    Initially my dog was terrified of the rocking motion of this toy, but quickly realized it dispensed food. It's hard plastic and not rubbery. My dog loved it until I left her alone with it while I was in the other room and she made quick work of destroying it. The place where the treats are dispensed is adjustable and when it became lodged closed, my dog decided the best approach was to chew the top off (like several of the item's photos). This all happened in 7-10 minutes left unsupervised. I.e. Good toy for a supervised dog or less extreme and determined ones.

  • wouldn't recommend

    By on

    Bought this to keep a senior boxer mix entertained. The packaging states there are 2 holes for treats to fall out of, 1 on top, 1 on the bottom. In order for treats to come out of the top, you must leave the yellow lid off. My dog chewed the top of the bottom (the green part) off in about 2 minutes. I put the yellow dome like lid back on but then very few treats fell out for her from the bottom. She was bored with it quickly. The product is made from a hard plastic. I actually would say this toy is a waste of money. Very disappointed.

  • Greatest toy alive

    By on

    I have an Australian Shepherd puppy who, like the rest of his breed, is high energy (both physically and mentally). This toy has been our savior: it helped transition him in his first month home with us by occupying him fully without us standing next time (i.e., he could have fun without realizing we weren't around), and since then it's great for distracting him with some small treats, apple bits, or whatever else. For the last couple of weeks, we've been feeding him his meals in it. At first, he would pick at it over the course of the day, but since we've changed his food to something (apparently) more tasty, he goes to town on the bob-a-lot immediately, and it takes him a good 5-25 minutes I have an Australian Shepherd puppy who, like the rest of his breed, is high energy (both physically and mentally).

He doesn't inhale his food anymore, and by adding a few treats in with it every other day or so, he eats it no matter what, thinking he'll get to something good eventually! Cannot recommend enough! P.S. Cleaning is annoying, but it's worth the work! … more

  • Great Product

    By on

    We have a 9 week Bichon Puppy who absolutely loves this toy. We put some of his allotted kibble he eats , inside of it and open the slot where the food comes out and since he loved the toy before we ever put food in it he bobbed it around and the first food that came out he was hooked. He played with it for 25 mins and then we put it away till the next day. This toy really stimulates his mind as well. We and our sweet puppy loves it.

  • This toy makes eating fun!

    By on

    My furry baby loves eating treats but is slow to eat out of her food bowl. This treat-dispensing ball makes eating fun for her. Just unscrew the top and add small treat or regular dry food. She enthusiastically rolls the treat ball around with her nose or uses her paws to swat the ball and make it roll, causing the treats to dispense. She continues until she can hear that all the treats are gone. She enjoys eating and feels as if she is eating special treats, even if it is her regular kibble!
