if you are looking for something to keep your dog busy. ....IQ Ball is what you need. The IQ Ball is extremely user friendly: easy to fill and easy to clean. I do not leave this down for my dogs to play with whenever they want to but put it away after each use so when they do get it, it is very exciting for them. I love it so much, I even bought one for a friend! ,

My dog trainer recommended the buster cube, a plastic cube that releases treat pellets.The reviews said it makes a lot of noise when used in the house because it's hard plastic. I decided to get IQ treat ball because you can adjust the size of the hole that dispenses the treat. It too is made of hard plastic, but since it is a sphere I think it makes less noise than a cube being pushed around the tile floor. My dog loves this toy and keeps him occupied for a while.
It is ok
We use ours as a food ball. Didnt realize how small 5" is. The opening on the ball is really small also. I dont think her food will fit through the opening when we switch her from her puppy food. This is a good product for smaller dogs or puppys.

Not for larger dogs.....but would be great for smaller dog. Mine uses more as a chew toy and is not made for chewing

Even with treats that easily fit through the oval hole, it's hard to get the treats out. Small, round kibbles would work best. The bottom half of this ball seems to be a little heavier than the top, clear, half, so it likes to stay hole-side up. I don't think it's worth the money.
I don't like this

You might like it, but for me, there's only one pretty-small hole for the treats to come out and they have to be small treats. My dog got tired of trying to get the food out pretty quickly. I bought it because I figured it would be big enough not to get lost under the couch (which it is). But, I don't want to have to give my dog dog food kibble as a treat. Most treats are not small enough.
ourpet's 5" treat ball

I have an intelligent and active 2 year old Cocker Spaniel. He has many "treat toys" but this is his favorite. I put in half a handful of kibble and a couple of pieces of a treat and let him loose. I have to keep an eye on him because when he is tired of rolling it around he will lay down and unscrew the ball to open it up for instant gratification! (He is not allowed to have it unsupervised). It is a great toy, entertaining and durable. My only complaint is that it is hard plastic and noisy sometimes. I will still buy him a new one when this one wears out-I would definitely recommend this as a good toy for smart, easily-bored dogs.
Her best toy ever!
Kate loves this toy and plays with it for hours. She is twelve and has tried so many other toys, but this one keeps her interest. You can adjust the amount of food that is dispensed to avoid overfeeding. Very intelligently designed.
