First the chamber for the treat is huge and wide open, I haven’t found a treat that won’t just fall out. It is durable for sure but my dog just isn’t interested and without a treat it doesn’t hold heir attention…which is the whole point of purchasing.
This didn't make it 3 months with my pit mix puppy (10 months old). It didn't have a mark on it until last week, so it could have been much worse. I might have to buy another one anyway since he loves it but I won't give him back this one because I'm concerned about him eating any more of the layer that's coming off. Speaking of which, it seems kind of odd that it's coming off in distinct layers. Maybe it's a lemon and the next one will be better?
The treats just fall out of this. I don't understand why it's called "dispensing" when the opening is just a hole.
West Paw toys are so durable and safe for aggressive chewers. I love them all. I’m still trying to find the right sized treat for this one tho. Wish West Paw had suggestions or recommendations for this.
My pack of 5 loves this toy. They are heavy chewers. They play tug with it on occasion. They chew it all day. It's fun to play fetch with and it bounces crazy. I also put treats in it for fun. I wrote a review and posted it on my personal Facebook page, that's how much I like it. Very durable toy!
I got this toy and a Toppl as well for my 12-y-o border collie. The Toppl has worked out great. This Tux Tough toy is heavier and, as the name suggests, made of tougher stuff. The knobs are not empty cavities, but filled with more of the harder material from which this is made. Tucking a biscuit into the open area as illustrated makes this no more than an expensive treat delivery system that takes only seconds for my dog to solve. The toy itself is much too solid and inert (not very squishy) for my older dog to enjoy as a chew toy. Might be best for a younger dog or a stronger chewer-? I will try filling the cavity with yogurt/pumpkin puree with bits of random treats mixed in, then freeze this as a licking toy to see if I can generate more interest in it with my gentle dog.
West paw toys are the only toys that will stand up to my power chewer! Best toys ever!
As far as how long it will last I do not know yet, but I ordered the large and the opening should be a bit smaller. its too big to stuff for an activity, but need the larger for the size of dog. Daughter bought one too and it was a waste of money for us because we wanted a tough toy to stuff with treats.
I've got two of these large tux toys. I like them because they're freezer friendly, can be use with wet food, easy to clean in the dishwasher. However, my dog doesn't like to eat frozen food out of this since it's really frustrating for him. Normal wet food he'll attempt. In terms of treat dispensing toys, I feel like there are some more versatile ones on the market, but I don't regret my purchase. Not a must have, but nice to have!
Well that didn't hold up
