The Ourpets Buster Food Cube
All of these were purchased here on Amazon and we're always adding to our arsenal. That said, the Buster Cube seems to be my dogs' least favorite out of the entire collection.
I gave it 3 starts for the following reasons:
1) Its hard plastic and is REALLY REALLY loud on our wood and tile floors. Super loud. So loud that the dogs kinda cringe a little when they move it. If they weren't hungry I don't think they'd bother messing with this because of that. Sometimes I stuff it with treats and give it to the dogs to play with while I study, but I can't get much studying done because of the noise.
2) I find filling it to be a hassle. Maybe its because I'm used to the ease of the Omega Tricky Treat and the Kong Wobbler but I have to unlock the inside piece, fill the toy,shake the kibble around a bit, place the inside piece JUST right, and lock in place. Its not rocket science by any measure but if I'm in a hurry its not a toy I can simple fill and throw to the dogs. The inside piece constantly falls out if not locked correctly and then it just dumps kibble on the floor. Ain't nobody got time for dat!
3) Its BIG. I mean, I bought the large for a reason, yeah, but this toy just seems excessively large for my Australian Shepherd. The small looked too small but I was unprepared for how big the large really is. Wish there was an in between size.
We keep using this toy because its difficult for my dogs. They have to really work to get the food and treats out so they stay occupied for a good awhile. But Lord Almighty it is LOUD.
So far so good! My dog is a heavy chewer and at first he tired to chew up the cube to get to the treats...but then he realized that he has to push it around with his nose for the treats to fall out. It kept him busy for quite a while which is good cause he's a super smart dog that never gets tired and wants me to play with him 24/7. So now he can entertain himself with the cube for a while. He loves everything that involves treats ;)
- durable: our big boy usually destroys his toys in less than 10 minutes. We've had this for 2 months and there are only shallow bite marks on it.
- lightweight: our 12 lb bichon also plays with the large size. She doesn't have a problem pushing it around and getting it to flip.
- noisy: because this toy is made of plastic, the dog kibbles inside make it too loud for my preference. It's louder than the Kong Wobbler Treat Dispenser (large size)
Once he got the hang of getting the food out and was determined to do so, I decided to make it a bit more difficult for the food to come out. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the inside piece that makes the food harder to get out, to turn, and when I tried to use pliers, the little flap you are supposed to use to turn it, turned white with weakness, so I stopped trying. A few weeks later, the cube was run over by a car and the center piece popped completely out and then was ran over. I contacted the manufacturer who has yet to respond (it's been about 3 weeks) about getting a replacement center piece because this thing would never completely burn or decompose in a landfill, and I try to be environmentally thoughtful as much as possible. Still waiting on their reply.....
Since the manufacturer didn't/hasn't responded and my dog needed this toy and I didn't want to throw it away, I started just putting food in it and then using duct tape to cover the hole (I use three strips over the hole) and cut a small rectangle out in the center. It works fine that way until he gets frustrated and manages to get a tooth into the little hole and pulls the duct tape off. That's usually towards the end of the session, so it's not that big of a deal. I'm usually out there to supervise, since I'm letting my three other dogs hang out in the drop zone and I don't want any trouble amongst them over food rights. (usually I shake out some food out of his area for the other dogs to mill around and eat while he's playing with his toy so we keep it fair 'cause we are all about equal fairness around here. Btw, the other three dogs are 7+ years old and don't have the ambition or desire to try this toy, though I'm not sure he would even let them, because it kind of technically has just been his toy since the beginning)
All of that being said, I'm not sure I'd ever want to use this in my house on my hardwood floors or carpets. First off, if your dog is very food driven, he/she will probably send this thing flying into cabinets, furniture, etc., which may or may not be an issue, but it would be for me. Secondly, even if I didn't care about my floors or furniture getting dinged and scratched up and oil or crumbs from the food getting on the floors and carpets, I kind of like quiet and this thing is kind of loud between the rattling of food and the scooting/sliding around. I could easily hear it in the house when he was playing with it in the garage.
This dog is very hard on bones and stuff and aside from being scuffed up, it is still holding together just fine and our new method of using duct tape is working well. Depending on your circumstances, it may be what you are looking for. I only gave it three stars because it is sort of a pain to get the food in the small hole and very hard to adjust how much food comes out, which was one of the reasons I bought it. I measure out my dogs' food, so I used my measure cup to fill it, which kept my hands from getting greasy/dirty from the food. Also disappointed that the manufacturer apparently doesn't care about customer service, which counts for a lot to me when there are so many other options available.
