This ball is extremely durable and makes minimal noise. It can roll on the carpet. It is a softer plastic, not a hard, noisy plastic...like some similar treat balls on the market.
While I'd prefer a smaller or adjustable hole, we've found a couple of treats Benji likes that make him work to get them out: the small size Milk Bones and the heart shaped Paul Newman treats. Both of these are just a little too big for him to get out of the toy by rolling it around. He has to squeeze the opening with his teeth just the right way and hope that he gets lucky. Plus the biscuit treats don't spoil if they remain in the toy. Another bonus is that the treat ball is just a little too large for him to lose under much of our furniture. Don't you hate it when you get a new toy, the dog loves it, and it disappears within the first five minutes if you turn your back? :)
However, I would tell anyone looking to purchase it to buy from another vendor. Amazon used to have one on here that offered the Atomic Treat Ball for $4, since I missed that boat I ended up buying mine at PetSmart for $6 (as mentioned above). Good treat toy- but not for $17.
PS- I only gave it 4 stars because I really don't feel like we've had adequate experience with it to say if it is well made or not. It DOES feel sturdy... I'll update after we've had this for a while longer!
UPDATE: Great toy once the dogs got used to it. They now easily knock the food out of it & get excited to use it. It's extremely sturdy, my youngest one carries it from room to room to enjoy it in private.
This toy is fun for the whole family. We all get a kick out of watching the dog chase it around intently. The kids even like trying to get the treats out for the dog if he's having a hard time.
When the dog doesn't want to have an audience, it is easy for him to mouth the whole thing and take it to another room for some privacy.
This is one of the only toys my puppy has that is still usable. It has withstood the razor sharp puppy teeth!
when filled with treats, our younger dog will ROLL it all over the house, trying to get his treats to fall out. when its empty, he brings it and drops it in our laps, grinning like a fool. we have 2 large german shepherds and this toy has withstood all kinds of punishment. yet still remains intact.
i reccomend this toy for anyone with a puppy...its very stimulating and helps teach them that whats inside this toy tastes much better than the corner of the couch...or shoes...always keep it on hand for POSITIVE RE-INFORCEMENT.
i give it to the dogs when we are leaving, and i take it away when we get back. that way, they look forward to the ATOMIC TREAT BALL. very good training device. my dogs have not chewed up anything in the house since i got this toy. WONDERFUL!
Also, because it's made of a harder plastic, the dog doesn't like to bite it very much. She'd rather bat it around with her nose and have the food come out that way. But I'm sure that's the way it was designed.
A decent toy. Nothing ground-breaking about it.
