Rated 5 out of 5 by SamsonBailey Ah-mazing!
This ball was recommended by another shopper at Petsmart. She said she had a German Shepherd and he loved it. We have two Staffy Boxers and they were about 5 months old when we got two of these. They were heavy chewers then and now at 85 lbs each they are DEFINITELY heavy chewers...these balls have stood the test of time and tug of war. They love them with and without treats inside. The only damage they have done to these balls in the last year is to have pulled the tiny tabs out of the middle. Treats still stay in, they still chew the heck out of these things. Games of fetch keep our boy busy for extended periods of time and when he's tired of running back and forth, he just chews it. No damage. Totally recommend this ball!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3and3 My dog LOVES this toy!
I have a 1 yr. old, 100 lb. Bluetick Coon Hound who is a treat hog and always wants to be busy. This ball is a great combo for him! He has had it about 6 months and is NOT easy on it! He chews it, throws it, smashes it, etc. and it is still in perfect condition. I mix up the sizes of treats I put in it so the smaller ones come out somewhat easy but the big ones stay in for a while to keep him entertained longer. If you squish it a bit then the hole opens up a bit bigger to make it easier to fill. Don't put huge pieces in it - they have to be able to come out somehow!!! If you are having that hard of a time filling it they will never come back out! I do a mix of kibble, small treats and different size broke up bigger treats to help block the holes a bit and he is entertained for a few hours rolling it around, chewing it, dropping it, smashing it, throwing it around or anything else he can do to get something to fall out! This is the perfect toy for a dog who likes to stay busy!

by LuLuke15 It's fantastic- my dog and I both LOVE it
So I'm one of those people that researches everything before purchase.
I researched "chew proof ball" and stumbled across the Starmark Chew Ball Treat Dispenser.
I'm so glad I did!
My dog is a year old and he weighs 60lbs. He has strong jaws and absolutely loves chewing on this ball. He has had it for 4 days and it has yet to die. We play fetch with it, tug of war, fill it with treats and he goes nuts rolling it around the house... I've left him alone with it on multiple occasions and it's still intact.
For those saying it's hard to fill, the Starmark website says they intend for those little notches on the dispensing ends to be cut to customize the opening.... that made a world of difference! I only cut 2 tabs off of one side and left the other alone. I fill it with his kibble and Blue stix lamb/apple which I tore into tiny pieces.
Also I love that it's infused with vanilla!!! You can teach smell association if you really want to!
Seriously give this a try! You can even train them to bring it to you to have it refilled (if they want) or to play fetch. I'm so glad I bought this ball!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by boilerelizabeth Our dog goes CRAZY for this ball!
I have a 70+ pound lab who goes absolutely bonkers for this ball! He LOVES it. We put some of his food in the ball instead of treats and he spends hours pushing it around the room. He plays with it so much that he has figured out that by using his paw he can get the ball out of corners and away from the walls when he can't get it to move with his nose. He plays with this ball on a regular basis and will let us know when it gets in a spot he can't reach. This is a great toy if you want to give your dog some mental stimulation and play but don't necessarily have as much time as you would like to devote to playtime on a daily basis. While we still get in playtime with our pup, we have found this ball is a great tool for him to continue playing on his own once he has worn us out. I would HIGHLY recommend this ball to anyone looking for something to keep your dog occupied and mentally stimulated.
