    Ok, it's been a while since I perused treat dispensing toys for the dogs, but I realized I need to replace their Busy Buddy Squirrel Dudes and Waggle toys due to wear and I need some help finding good replacements!

    We currently have:
    Squirrel Dude (2, with 2 MIA)
    Waggle
    BB Football
    Kibble Nibble
    Tricky Treat Ball
    Bob A Lot
    Kongs (3, with 1 MIA)
    Wobbler
    Treatstik (MIA, though)
    IQBall
    Tug A Jug sans rope (using a ball inside instead)

    Any suggestions on new ones we should try? Especially valuable would be ones that are durable enough to use unsupervised and that hold 3/4 cup or more of kibble.

    Premier (petsafe, now) has a new one called the barnacle. It's pretty much the same as a waggle, but with three different sized chambers. I just think it looks neat, LOL!

    We also have a busy buddy magic mushroom... It holds at least Rage's breakfast (2 cups or so) and the holes that the food comes out of are adjustable.

    The exterior is their silicone type rubber with a heavy plastic maze inside. To clean fill with water and add a little soap, swish, rinse, let stand to dry.

    Is not tough at all so it's very much a supervised treat ball. I've gotten so many back destroyed...

    Not, it's NOT for extreme chewers, although I must advise most any food toy should be supervised I've seen a ton of Tug-a-jugs in pieces in minutes, BUT, it's soft rubber is excellent for in-house play (says the person whose dog was just trowing a hard rubber food toy at a wall because he couldn't get the last cookie out :rolleyes:). I've also seen dogs destroy the Kong wobbler too. Honestly, Bob-a-lot is the one that would work best probably for semi-tough dogs to be semi-unsupervised as it's sturdier than many of the others.
