You unscrew the yellow topper and put treats (I use his regular kibble and he enjoys it all the same) in the top. There is a little switch inside that you can pull to the desired size, so treats don't come out too easily.
There is another switch like this on the side of the toy where the treats come out.
I feel like this wobbling toy is more sturdy than the KONG version too. I feel like the KONG version's threading is going to wear down faster than this one as this one seems to be more durable. (My dog likes to pick it up and drop it from the couch).
All in all, my dog prefers the KONG, but in the long run I think this one will stand the test of time. He has been playing with these for several months now and has not broken either one yet!

In conclusion, I purchased this toy as a meal dispenser to slow the eating rate of my Boxer and it works perfectly. My Boxer gets excited when it comes out and it keeps her attention as she eats. It slows her eating pace down to about 20 minutes for 2 cups of Iams Puppy Food. I've never left it out as a toy for her to play with so now she doesn't bother it unless it has food in it. One negative comment I have is trying to fill this dispenser with 2 cups of food is a bit tedious. Its takes about 3 minutes to get all the food in the little hole at the top where you have to shake it so it falls down in to the main lower chamber that has the 3 cup capacity. I would suggest they double the purpose of the cap and make it some sort of funnel. It would be very east given that its already close to being shaped like a small funnel. Just add a sliding door to the top of the cap like the other 2 doors on the toy. Hope this review helps, ignore the bad reviews, just use this toy as intended and you will have no problems.

My lab is now 20 months old and we had to take the bob-a-lot away at a yr after we realised he had played with it so much by batting it with his front paws that he had actually damaged his elbows as a youngster and is now bilaterally dysplastic and quite lame. He was 5 mo old when it started and we had followed all the rules about exercise and got a pup from a long line of dysplasia clear genes. Sad as he loved to play with it. So I would be careful and not overdo it with a developing youngster.
