JW Pet Hol-ee Treat Dispenser Dog Toy
Lasted 20 minutes
Such poor quality. The treats rolled out in the first few rolls. Our dog chewed threw the blue rubber exterior ball and plastic cap in a matter of minutes. This toy was recommended to me by petsmart employee knowing my dog was more of a chewer and it was definitely a disappointment because it didn't last at all.

Very EASY treat dispenser
I've had the Holee-treat ball for a few months now and it's still used pretty regularly. My dogs, although rough on other toys, know how to interact with treat dispensing toys so it's not roughed up, just rolled around.
My biggest complaint is that it is ridiculously easy. My dogs empty this toy in a minute or two--even my foster dog who had never used a treat dispensing toy other than a Kong emptied this in under 5 minutes. I ended up putting a piece of duct tape over part of the hole to make it harder but it's still empties pretty quickly.
Because it is SO easy, it would make a very good toy for a dog who is brand new to food dispensing toys.

Fairly Durable, Keeps Dog Occupied, But Small
**Most treat toys I've gotten for Jameson, my 45lb border collie mix, I've had to return because parts on it tear up his nose as he pushes the toy around (he uses his nose rather than his paws)... This toy has a big rubber ball around the dispenser, preventing injury to him! Used 3 days so far, and no injury!
**Jameson was beginning to chew out of boredom when alone. This ball gives him something to do instead. Even after he's finished the treats, he rests instead of chewing because it tires out his mind! Mental stimulation coupled with physical (with it gives a little bit of with pushing it around the house) makes him a better behaving boy!
**Three days use so far (couple hours out each day) and it's still in tact, great condition... No broken parts or anything! Jameson's not a big toy chewer unless it's a rope or stuffed toy. Not a good toy for toy chewers though!
**Screw on cap... LOVE! Hate when there's no way to get the treats that Jameson missed back out. This ball has a screw on cap for easy access!
**Really the only negative is that the dispenser doesn't hold much. I got a bigger ball that holds 2 cups of Jameson's dog food plus treats... I now bring out both balls so my other dog can use one of them too... Jameson has a hard time hogging two balls at once :P The bigger ball doesn't have a screw on cap... Sad
***Pet Satisfaction is 4/5 because of the small size! Also why I rated 4/5 instead of 5/5 on item itself

I have purchased other toys from JW and was VERY pleased with the quality and durability so I expected the same. I brought the ball home for my 45 pound Boxer/Beagle mix. He was completely entertained by it (for about an hour.) Then, I noticed him trying to chew on something. The inside yellow plastic had broken off in two separate pieces. I was really disappointed. I don't mind paying $20 for a toy that will last. But one hour is not acceptable. Don't waste your money.
