thats my reason for wobbler love. I can put 2 cups in *easily* and walk away.

The jolly pet ones are fun but a pain to fill and they barely hold 1/2-1 cup.

The bob-a-lot holds a lot but its horrific to fill, I finally donated mine.

I can't remember for sure but I seem to think the cube was a pain to fill too?

The tug-a-jug was too frustrating for my pit bulls and they just ate through the first one and I donated the second.

The Nina ottosson toys, that I have tried, are way too easy to figure out and never hold enough food. They go quickly and I feel the need to supervise them when they have small parts.

I like this new one: https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&....1.JuWxnv1Dbb4

We just got it at work and it seems tough and fun. It takes the dogs a while, they can't seem to flip it yet and no one has tried to just chew the "grass blades". It's like a more elaborate slow-down food bowl.

I like my Nina Ottosson toy

For me I don't mind having to supervise her, or having to reload it multiple times. If I use puzzle toys I'm just doing it to give her brain a bit of a workout, and for her this type of toy does that better than the ones she just has to whack around or roll. That's pretty much what she does with all her other toys, anyway lol.

It's probably because I use work to eat toys as baby sitters/time occupiers so my take is a bit different.

I haven't tried all of her toys, I do like the tornado one but I wish it held more or was a bit more complicated. The brick one sucks, IMO.

We had a tug-a-jug but Shambles showed me his displeasure with it by destroying it in a matter of minutes. Guy doesn't like a challenge. He loves the wobbler, though.

We have one of these at the shelter I work it. We mostly use it with dogs who have been at the shelter a while. So far all the dogs I've seen use it have loved it! It was especially great for Handsome, a bloodhound/lab mix we had with horrible food allergies. He couldn't have any sort of enrichment food wise because of his allergies but he LOVED when we fed him from the wobbler. He figured out how to use it with no problem, unlike normal kongs which some dogs who come in can't seem to figure out. It's also super easy to fill and clean. I highly recommend it!

I like the Kong Genius my secret santa gave Lucy last year It's kind of tricky to fill, but it actually takes her a couple minutes to empty it (when all the ball/cubes/etc took around 20 seconds, no joke). You can add extra pieces to it to make it more challenging.

The twist-n-treat is fairly successful here too. I bought the smallest size and screw it down all the way, so that it packs the kibble in and makes it trickier to get out. It only holds 1/2 cup of kibble though (which is fine, that's her whole breakfast)

The balls were annoying, because they'd always end up under the sofa, and she figured out that if she dumps it down the stairs all the kibbles fall out...
