Good treat dispenser.
My dog has a few treat balls, but this one really gives him a workout to get to the treats. He really has fun rolling it around. It unscrews, so cleaning it is a breeze.

Not worth it.
My Eskie destroyed this in less than 10 minutes. Would not buy again. The treat dispenser shaped like a mushroom works much better and she has not been able to destroy it.

This toy is nice because you can regulate how much food comes out or how difficult the toy is. It's also very easy to fill and wash and it lasted almost 20 minutes for my dogs to get their kibble out :-) Great product!

Good durable toy, my boy just doesn't like it
I bought this for my Shar Pei to keep him busy while I'm at work. He's never been interested in it though. I showed him what it does, but just doesn't keep his interest. It's a good quality and seems like it would hold up well for extended use.

you need to know what kind of treats or food to put in it
I found that the treats or the food that I put in this would not come out for me let alone the dog. I would much prefer the IQ balls than this one.I am very disappointed in the construction of it. I have both a large dog and a couple of small ones. i bough both a large and small one.

Don't ideal of small dogs
We got two of these for our small dogs (~10lbs) and the smallest one was the size of their head if not bigger.Not something they really can toy around with and they didn't get the concept of it.

Puppy loves and does not get tired of it!
My 7 month old puppy absolutely loves this toy. I put his kibble (regular food)in it and he will play with it for hours all times throughout the day trying to get the food out. He will have food in his bowl, but would rather play with the ball to get his food out of it. He's had it for almost 4 months and still loves it just as much. I did have to clip the opening flaps just slightly, so the food would come out just a little bit easier. Even small kibble would not fall out. But he kicks it around about 5 times and a piece will fall out. I have to put it up at night, because he would play with it all night while we were trying to sleep. lol. The best interactive toy yet. A great investment! 100% satisfied.

All time FAVORITE toy!
My dog absolutely looooves this toy. We call it her 'space ball' and she carries it everywhere whether it has cookies in it or not. When I say everywhere, I mean it. She even brings it to bed with her.Considering she bounces it down the stairs or drops it off of a bed practically every day, they hold up quite well. We go through about one a year... which isn't bad considering how many times it falls onto the hardwood floors. My other dog doesn't care much about playing with it. He sure lingers when Moxie is kicking it around just in case a cookie goes astray!I highly recommend this for dogs that like a challenge. A tough chewer could certainly kill this toy, but they can usually kill any toy. The price on this website is amazing, by the way. I paid over $20 for one of these in a pet store before i knew any better!

Love it!
I have 3 dogs - akita/shepherd mix, boykin spaniel/black lab mix and mix(possible golden retriever mix). My Boykin absolutely loves this toy and goes nuts. He eventually gets the toy unscrewed even though I screw it super tight. Sometimes this takes him 5min sometimes 30. But it is very entertaining to watch. The rubber bumpers are great, however he has chewed some of them off. My other dogs love to follow him around and get the treats that fall out w/o having to do the work themselves but they will play with it if they are by themselves. They however cannot get the toy open. If you want to make it easier, you can just cut a little snippet at one or both ends. Great toy!! I'm ordering a 2nd one today.

Every Dog should have one!!
This is the Best Toy I ever bought my dogs. I put their dog food in each egg, each day.. and they Love it!! I had to take time to teach them to roll it and return it with their paw, but they learned fast and Love this toy!! If I could have just one toy for my dogs, it would be this one. An Absolute Must for any dog! I put up their bowls...

He needs a variety of toys to dispense his treats because he gets bored with the "same old same old"!

Did not last very log with our aggressive chewer. He enjoyed it, just not durable for him.

The Best Interactive Toy for my dogs. They need to learn and think about how to eat the food and treat from this toy.
NITIMAS US67 C on Mar 28, 2014
Going to try this out with my dog that gulps his food. I'm thinking he will like this as it will engage his mind as well.
