Starmark Everlasting Groovy Ball Treat Dispenser Dog Toy
Great for Stuffing
We have two St. Bernards, and they just love this toy. They enjoyed the treat, but honestly, it didn't last very long. I think my female had it out in twenty minutes, tops. We don't love these toys for the treats, though. We prefer to fill these with wet dog food, peanut butter, yogurt, or apple sauce and then freeze them. My dogs get a little hungry before dinner time, but I don't want their last meal at 4:00 in the afternoon, so I give these to them then. They calm right down, and they chew on them for a long time. Love this and the Starmark Pickle.

Great for heavy chewer
My lab/pit mix destroys most "durable" toys. So far, this and the Kong are the only toys we have been able to keep around. Sure, the treats are expensive, and they don't stay in forever, but my dog likes to chew on the toy even without the treat in it. If you don't think your dog would interact with this toy without the treat part, it might not be the toy for you. Otherwise, I would highly recommend it.

Toy well made, treat not so much
Although the treat that's inside the groovy ball is definitely NOT everlasting, my Allie enjoyed it while it lasted...I should have bought replacements, but they're pretty pricey for me and I was hoping this would last longer than 20 mins.

I got this to provide my large female Lab/Pit mix some mental stimulation and to occupy her mind. I have, in the past tried Kongs and while nothing will bet a frozen Kong stuffed with Peanut Butter for teething and chewing, my dog was getting bored with it quickly and would go find something more entertaining.
When I first gave her this the dental treat lasted about 6 hours of off and on chewing, which I consider to be great. I have been stuffing the grooves full of meaty training treats and have loaded the inside with everything from training treats to the goldfish crackers and she will gnaw away on it for hours and toss it around trying to shake them out. I see complaints about dogs chewing up the plastic/rubber quickly but we haven't had that problem, I got the large and it is heavy duty and the perfect size for her.
As a side note, my foster puppy loves this as well and gets very excited playing with it, even if it is a little big.
