OurPets IQ Treat Ball
Interactive food dispensing dog toy.
OurPets IQ Treat Ball
The OurPets product line features a variety of premium and innovative toys, accessories, feeding solutions, and waste management solutions specially designed to awaken a pet’s natural instincts. The essence of this is captured in the OurPets IQ Treat Ball.
Why Dogs Need Toys
Dogs need mental stimulation from play to keep from being bored and to fulfill their hunting instincts.
Physical activity from play acts as a workout, keeping dogs physically fit and enriches the pet’s quality of life and fosters a healthy relationship between the pet and their parents.
About the IQ Treat Ball
For a challenge that’s filled with tasty fun, try the IQ Treat Ball. Fill with treats or kibble, set your desired difficulty level using the ball’s adjustable interior disc, and let your dog roll the ball across the floor to try to release the food inside. Fewer treats will dispense when you make the difficulty level harder for your dog, making them work harder for their food. This toy promotes active feeding, giving your dog the exercise they need and rewarding them for it!
Since only a few bits of food are dispensed at a time, this toy slows down feeding to help aid with digestion and bloating, similar to a slow feed bowl.
Benefits of the IQ Treat Ball
- Rewards physical activity
- Promotes active feeding
- Adjustable difficulty levels ensure that your dog always has a challenge
- Comes apart for easy cleaning
IQ Treat Ball Features
Rewards Active Feeding
Fill with your dog's favorite treats or food and watch as your dog rolls the IQ Treat Ball around trying to get the food out. The more the toy rolls, the more likely your dog will get what they want, food!
Separates for Easy Cleaning
The IQ Treat Ball easily unscrews to add food or treats, as well as to make cleaning simple. Hand wash each part with warm, sudsy water. Rinse and dry before filling.
Slows Down Feeding
Slow down your dog's feeding with the IQ Treat Ball. Even by putting a portion of your dog's meal in this toy, they will have no choice but to only eat what is dispensed. Similar to a slow feed bowl, your dog is only allowed to eat so much at a time.
Adjustable Disc to Set the Difficulty Level
Set the adjustable disc to your desired difficulty level to control how much food or treats are dispensed for your dog. The smaller the hole, the less food or treats will dispense making it harder for them to get to their food. The higher the difficulty level, more work and physical activity will be needed to eat. This hard work is rewarded with food or treats once they come out of the toy.
The OurPets IQ Treat Ball keeps your dog mentally stimulated, physically active, happy and healthy. This toy reduces boredom and destructive behavior through healthy play and exercise while developing and maintaining your dog’s physical alertness. Just fill the toy with your dog’s favorite treats, adjust the level of difficulty, and watch them have a fun, interactive feeding experience.

The only downside is that a lot of times the lid gets loose even if you close it pretty secure. One time the lid came off completly as my dog was playing with it, exposing all the kibble. To prevent this I used some strength to close the lid very tight, but later I could not open it back up! It took a grown male to open it back.
My dog does not chew on this ball due to the awkward shape and material(hard plastic). I and my dog have dropped this a couple of times on both laminate and wood floor, but I see no crack on the ball so far. It seems durable.
Good ball to make your dog work for his breakfast or dinner.
UPDATE: My dog still loves this toy. With the difficulty setting set to max, it is the slowest treat dispensing toy in my collection(buster cube, tug a jug, kong wobbler). That's good, it lets him burn off more energy.
Also since the ball doesn't hold a full cup of kibble, I would pour half and the rest on his regular food bowl. I place the ball next the the bowl and give a release "OK!". Guess where my dog goes? He runs off with the ball! Even after realizing that there is food in the bowl (He puts his nose inside the bowl for a second and then goes to the ball) where he could just eat it, he perfers to get his food from the ball.
*Add puppy's food along with small treats so that he doesn't get an upset tummy.
*If it confuses him at first (mine sat and barked at it) then put all the treats on the top of the toy, closing the 'trap door'. This makes it much easier for him to figure out how to get the treats. As he gets the hang of it, put the treats on the bottom and open the door to the widest, slowly closing it as he gets the hang of it.
This might not be great for you:
*If you don't have a fairly big non-carpeted space- I don't think it would move too great on carpet. You don't want treats spilling out on your carpeting anyway.
*If your dog is very sedentary. To get the treats, the dog really has to bat this around- so a sedentary dog may loose interest quickly.
*If your dog is not food motivated(as few dogs as this may be)- once again, may not have much interest.
*If you have a very small puppy- small breeds may have difficulty with this as it needs to be batted very hard and it may be too large for them to get it to tip over (is weighted to stay with hole up if not hit hard). However, that depends on how active your puppy is.
With this ball you get to adjust the kibble opening so that it takes longer for kibbles to come out. I started him on the 'easiest' (widest) setting at first, and he got the kibble out pretty quickly. I now always use it on the 'hardest' (smallest) setting, and he'll run around for 20 minutes or longer with it. He gets Blue Buffalo wilderness dry food, which are pretty average size kibbles.
So, this one is highly recommended. It keeps my pup moving for a good amount of time.
As of today, his jaw and two front teeth got stuck in the hole, which we had no idea until we started hearing him freak out and cry ( he is always around us when using this toy). As it is hard plastic, we were unable to break the ball so we had to bring him into emergency. In order to get his jaw unattached, they had to sedate him and break the ball with which was quite the process.

He destroyed this on his first use.
The plastic broke into jagged pieces and cut up his mouth as well.
