Okay for the right dog
This product probably would have been okay for my dog if I would have had a dog food that came out of it better. The one dog food I tried had triangle bits that were small and dots that were even smaller but the triangles seemed to hang up even with it open all the way. So I put it up until I decided to change dog food. Small round kibble bits and they still stuck some and my dog seems to have a thing with texture so he kept chewing on the top instead of pushing it around for food. He likes his other food dispensers but this one was a bust. I had to take it away and get rid of it before he hurt himself. For another dog with the right treats or kibble it would probably be great.
My puppy does great with her bob-a-lot, it makes her work for her food and gives her time to actually chew/digest. I've used mine with and without the yellow cap. If you are only putting food in the bottom area I removed the yellow cap for a different level of difficulty. We've had athe smallest bob-alot and the largest, she did fine with both!
If you have a large breed dog - this may not be the correct toy for it.
It took my dog about an hour to chew and ingest the greater portion of the screw on lid.
My dogs, Bodie (lab) & Tigger (lab mix), LOVE these toys. The Bob-a-Lot is guaranteed to get their tails wagging energetically. They are entertained for quite a while, as they work to get access to their food. I am convinced they are far happier, healthier and saner, getting their breakfast this way, rather than gulping it down in five seconds from a simple boring dog food bowl.
I like these for enrichment feeding my 2 60 pound dogs, they can hold enough kibble to fit a meal inside, where as most other's I've tried don't quite hold enough.
Good but had serious defect
The idea is great and so is the implementation. However, once the dog is done, they chew the yellow cap off. The dog got two uses of of it before it was ruined.
Both dogs love it.
Great interactive dog toy as it keeps the boys busy and occupied. It's quite noisy so good to use outside. It holds a lot of dog food if filled and adjustable slots make it usable for any sized dog kibble. Both my dogs love this toy.

I love that you can put any size treat in it and just select the dial for how slow or fast it will come out even with tiny treats or kibble!
Boh dogs love it
This makes a good toy to get the old Golden Retrievers busy with their food. They get fed and and get to do a little work for it as well. Keeps them busy on cold winter days when they belong inside instead of in a snow drift ! :-).
Great for bored Aussies!
My parents' Aussie loves her Bob-a-lot! We haven't had a problem at all with her tearing into hers. It even keeps her busy and occupied when storms come up and she gets thunderstorm anxiety. I will say that they can be very loud on hardwood floors, which is probably why the storms don't bother her as much. I'm now ordering another one for me and my guys! :-)
