Good Distraction when leaving the house
from SW Glorida10/23/2012
I save some of Lily's breakfast to put in the Bob-a-lot so when I leave for work she is busy getting the rest of her breakfast and not focused on me. I also use it to feed her when I donít want her to eat as fast.
Great activity toy for puppy

Before the Bob-A-Lot my little blue heeler puppy was using the furniture for chewing activity but with the Bob-A-Lot he finds it much more entertaining to knock the toy around and get food from it.

I take care of puppies for a rescue group and always want sturdy toys that will keep them amused. This is not only a great interactive toy for the pups, but my older dogs get a huge kick out of it too!
Fun for everyone!

Took a few times for, my Chiuhuahua to figure out how to make this toy dispense her food. Once she did, though, she enjoys playing with it and I have fun watching her chase it around the floor. This toy is much easier and mor fun than the cube-type toy, in our opinion!
#1 Toy at our house!

We have had the larger Bob -A- Lot for a long time. It is our 5 yr. old Golden's all time favorite! Played with EVERY morning after breakfast. So, with a new pup, I decided to purchase the smaller version as well! My older Golden is in disarray, as he wants both at the same time which is impossible but a hoot to watch! My only issue with the new one is the kibble door to dispence the treat is so loose that all the kibbles just fly out
rather than make them work for the treat which has always been the case for our first, larger one.
My one year olds were afraid to interact with it. Its size was intimidating (about half their size) even though I showed them that it gave out food (which it appeared they liked). I ordered several penny bags of food to keep them engaged but was told only one bag could be provided per order. (I ordered several of these toys.) So not an immediate hit with my dogs.
Final ? solution ??
I went through 7 "tug-a jugs" before I tried this. My clever Sheltie managed to lose a small part from the top opening where you fill the toy, but we later found it and stopped that problem by always feeding with the cup/cap screwed on! She is happily engaged for 20 minutes or so,and has stopped barfing up her food because she can't wolf it down, Also, the opening which dispenses the food is adjustable enough to accommodate any size kibble that a dog of her size and breed would eat!!
A bit expensive, andt the only small drawback is that it is impossible to predict where it might be when she's finished. We have to search, or restrict the possibilities. I feed her inside because I don't want any more squirrels than I have already!!
