We started to notice a small piece on the original one start to tear away very slightly so didn't want to chance her pulling it off and swallowing it so ordered a replacement on Amazon. Bear in mind though, that was a good 4 years (yes, 4 years) after buying the first one!
You certainly don't have to fill the pickle with the wavy treats made for this product. We actually stuff it with a little plain deli turkey to keep her busy.
The main reason why we even purchased this guy in the first place was to give Honey some mental stimulation. Being a lab and like any other smart breed, she needs something to do or figure out to keep her out of trouble. At nearly 12 years old, lots of exercise is sadly becoming harder for her. We can't get her to expend her energy that way anymore so the pickle has become a great alternative to keep her happy and her mind active, yet she can still rest at the same time. In fact, she loves it so much, she seeks out this green thing every day, at the same time, like clockwork.
We highly recommend this product and we're all sure your fur babies will too. She's quite the chewer at nearly 90lbs too by the way, so durability especially for a big breed has been great too.
Bandit was stumped and fascinated the first time he played with The Pickle. He know the drill with the Kong - throw it, bounce it, treats come out. He tried playing with The Pickle the same way and was shocked when the treats didn't come out. I supervised him, seeing how he was problem solving to get the treats out. I used semi-soft Zuke's training treats for the first try. I don't know who was more excited, me or Bandit, when he figured how to get the treats out!!!! He is currently panting and very proud of his accomplishment.
I'm going to try treats with different textures and different challenge levels. AWESOME TOY!! LONG LIVE THE PICKLE!!!
As many reviewers compare, this is 2 times better than the Kong. Why 2 times you ask? Because there are 3 wavy narrow slots for treats in stead of 1 large one. Narrow is good and keeps the dog occupied longer.
Comparing with the Kong, the large opening lets the dog tongue get in there so easy and get the frozen peanut butter quickly. But with the Pickle I slather peanut butter deep in the pockets with a butter knife, freeze, and our little Terrier is quiet in the crate.
Other treats we use are her dry food and the Starmark Flavor Wave treat broken into pieces. I use 2-3 broken pieces in 1 pocket leaving room for her tongue to get in between each one.
This treat keeps her busy for HOURS. it is truly amazing. Compared to the red Kong which keeps her occupied for 10 minutes or so. But I do have to say, the HOURS difference is in the Flavor Wave treats I was talking about. They are very hard to get out of the pockets so she licks, paws, bites at them keeping her busy. The frozen peanut butter is always the first to go, then her dry food, then the Flavor Wave treats are either licked to a nub or eaten.
Would recommend for noisy or chewy dogs that need stimulation while crated.
NOTE: I wouldn’t waste money on the expensive treat inserts. I just chop up carrots or put kibble in the treat slots. He has fun throwing it around trying to get the treats out
