Default Kong Wobbler

Has anyone tried this toy? Does it hold up well? I need a good treat dispensing toy that won't get torn to pieces in an hour, and that is relatively challenging. Skye went through a tug a jug in no time..like literally ate through the bullet proof plastic. Anything else, if it has food in it, she tears up.

It's held up well here, BUT it's not very challenging at ALL.

I love it. Obi hasn't destroyed it BUT when he gets it close to empty, he's figured out how to unscrew the top...

This.
Juno's shows a lot of wear and tear (she gnaws on it a lot) but everything is still in one piece. But there's no challenge. The opening on it is pretty large, so one whack sends most of the food falling out of it.

Depends on the size of your kibble. Steve eats almost every meal out of his Kong wobbler. It definitely takes a longer time if he's eating something with bigger kibbles.

I pick it up as soon as it's empty, so his is in pretty good shape.

They seem to stand up.. but most of the dogs around here figure it out pretty quickly and learn to hold it at the right angle/tip it/empty it in less than no time.

I liked the cube toys better. At least they tire themselves out flipping it over and messing with it

I've found if it's not full it takes a lot longer for the pieces to fall out but if it's full the tiniest push can make the kibble fall out.

I'll usually get larger treats and put it in so only one at a time can fall out so there is a little bit more of a challenge.

Love love love it. It's the easiest to fill and it takes my dogs enough time to make it worth my money. Plus it's one of the only toys, ever, my pit bulls don't destroy.

Thanks! It does seem like the only thing that will hold up with her. She would rather figure out a way to go through the toy than try to figure out how to get it out. I've tried a ton of various rubber toys and they just aren't 'right'. I have a Bionic toy that is fairly sturdy but it is weird to fill, it just doesn't hold enough.

GREATLY loved by my foster. I think she'd rather die than eat kibble out of a normal bowl. Loves knocking that thing around.
