Simon Loves It
I bought this for Simon, my recently adopted dog. He has issues which we're working through, but he also would eat so fast that he would start chocking. Our trainer recommended a food dispenser to slow down his eating. This really does work! not only for his food but treats to keep him busy when I am gone. Simon knows it as "Roly Poly" loves it!

Great Toy!
I purchased this toy so my dog that destroys most toys would have to work for treats & keep her busy. Once I got it home my other dog claimed it as her toy so I had to purchase another. Now they each have their own. Both dogs love it and Bella (the queen of toy destruction) has not been able to destroy this toy. It looks almost the same as when I purchased it. You need to use small treats so I purchase Zukes Mini's for it and I even make the openings smaller to make it a little harder for the treats to dispense.

We got this toy a year ago from a different place when my border collie was three months old, to slow down his fast eating habit, we continued to feed him twice a day with this toy which he learned to do right away, As he got older, he would continue to play with this toy even with no food in it! He doesn't have a problem with fast eating anymore, he's a year-old now and it continues to push and shove the toy all over the backyard for fun, it's his favorite toy besides any kind of ball! I got two more in a small size and a large size because we're getting another border collie puppy! I keep the lid on nice and tight at all times this product has been tossed around more than you'll ever know and is still perfect! He even drops it onto the driveway from the top of his A-Frame!

For mini pig
I got this for my mini pig. It is perfect for her because of the small hole for her pellets and it is relatively stable. She would lose the ball within a couple minutes.

Great for active dogs.
We've had this toy for years and our border collie/husky loves it. She usually demolished most toys in a few minutes - even those that say "virtually indestructible". The only down-side is that she will from time to time get it stuck under furniture and come to me for help in retrieving it, but what toy doesn't? I'm glad I bought it.

Good in theory
Got this for my lab mix. Thought she would have a good time trying to figure it out. Instead she decided to destroy it. She could smell the treats still in the top and chewed the lid into a million little pieces. I realize this could be in part that she loves to chew and not the smartest but I really hoped this would stand up a little longer than two days. Just another one to add to the grave yard of toys. If your dog doesn't insist on destroying things it may be worth a try. If you have a chewer I would pass.

My dog (4 month old shar pei) loves this toy. It's interactive and moves a lot. It's durable and a good price. He can gulp a cup of food in about 5 minutes, so i use this to feed him. Works great. I like that i can control how difficult it is.

Good if your dog likes it.....
I bought this to keep my active dog busy. She figured it out pretty fast butgives up if I make it a bit harder for the treats to come out. My other dog just waits for strays that the first dog missed. Not interested other than that. My sister has a GSP that loves this toy.

My new boxer girl loves this. Since she almost inhales her food this helps to slow her down. Great investment.

Keeps active Border Collie mix interested
The scenario: Border Collie mix. Puppy. Highly intelligent. Cracked most "smart" toys in a matter of minutes, usually by "cheating." I ended up buying 5 of these suckers -- two big, three little -- so they could be her "sheep." I divvy up a handful of kibble among the five and then put these all over the house. They wobble so they catch her attention and itshe has to "tend" to each and eventually "herd" them to the same place so she can keep watch over them. It keeps her busy for a half an hour. I also keep the dispensing hole closed because she has figured out (first try) how to slide it open. She is also working on how to unscrew the cap -- but I take her sheep away when she gets to that point. Yay!

Never tried a toy that dispenses treats. Thought I'd try. A little disappointed your website doesn't say if treats at included ore at least recommend what type of treat to purchase for this type of toy

This is so much fun to feed my pugs from as it makes them work for their food and slow down when eating.

interactive to keep dog busy
MaryAnn O on Oct 19, 2015
My puppy is bored and his old toys- forget about it! He is starting to explore in a less desirable way i.e. chewing a shoe (He has never done this ever), removing the door stopper in the wall which prevents the door from damaging the wall (The little springy thing) How did he do that????... He is smart and this looks like it can keep him entertained and challenged for my toy poodle aka Pup Pup.

My pup chews through almost any toy. This one kept him busy and interested for several months before he finally destroyed it.

My APBT inhales his 1 1/2 cups of food in about 10 seconds. I've gotten him to eat half of it out of a feeder ball now and he really loves it. I like that this is a little more challenging than just rolling a ball around and also that I'll be able to place his entire meal in the Bob-A-Lot to slow him down a bit while he has fun figuring it out.
