We feed our dog with this wobbler when we don’t have time to do training play et cetera for her meals. Who needs a boring old bowl anyway. The only thing I’ll say is that it can be very loud as they bang it up against your kitchen cabinets but it’s worth it for the dog
Good for fast eaters
My 5 mo old beagle quickly learned how to use it and this stops the dog from swallowing her food within secs. Now it takes her over 4 min to finish her meals.
Essential dog distracter / frustration fixer
Really excellent dog toy. Almost indestructible as they can't bite it. Great for slow feeding kibble, distracting an anxious dog while you leave the house or a beggy dog while you have dinner!
Niff loves smashing this around, it vents energy and frustration. It's noisy on laminate flooring/skirting boards, can travel at speed & is hard plastic, so maybe be careful if you have very small kids crawling. Hasn't marked our skirting - yet.
Superb toy for a bouncy boistrous boxer pup!
I bought this having read other reviews and can say in all honesty I am so glad I did. Cooper loves it! He is a very big 10 month old pup at 33kg, and so has puppy mentality and full grown adult size. He LOVES this, and will play with it endlessly, with or without treats in it. We have to take it off him to stop him! We get full on all four paws in the air jump attacks! A brilliant, robust, well designed toy. Highly recommend
Great for GSD
My dog was a bit afraid of the wobbler at first but once he understood it was not a living creature, he got it quickly how to get the snacks out. I am very happy with the purchase as it is a different method of getting the snacks out comparing to other toys. Wobbler keeps my clever dog busy for a while as there is no way to outsmart it. A few months on and it is scratched a lot but still going strong even though my dog is not at all gentle with it. I would recommend this product.
Keeps the dog entertained
Bought the large one for a Jack Russell x Dachshund who is prone to destroying his toys. After a brief training session (where I put a couple of bits of kibble under a plastic cup) he got the idea and since then there has been no stopping him. Happily it's too big for him to get his jaws around, so there isn't a scratch on it so far!
My puppy is only 5 months old and I thought this would be too big for her, but it's great for feeding her dry food and keeping her entertained, she was frightened of it at first and just barked and barked, but now she gets excited when I bring it out cos she knows it's feeding time and there's no barking!
My pug is obsessed with this
I was afraid it might be too big for him but its perfect. It took him a while to understand the concept but he loves it. Right now he finished the food that I put in so I put the toy on my table, now he wont leave and wants it back hahah
both my dogs love this keeps them busy for ages, will be buying another
Hard wearing for dogs of all sizes.
I have 3 of these for 5 dogs. I got them on the other offer - free snacks. I didn`t use them as too tiny. However I had some Lucullus dog biscuits from here. Perfect for the Kong Wobbler. 1 of my dogs uses these as a boomer ball / running egg effect. My Pug plays boxing with it. She gives it a quick left hook, then a right hook and the snacks come out at a slow but steady pace. Its a fab product as it`s really strong and keeps the smallest of my brood @ 6.5 kg - 43 kg very entertained.
Great for even the smallest of puppies
I thought my Pomeranian puppy would struggle with this as it looked so big but in a couple of days he had mastered an interesting head butting technique that results in him emptying the toy in no time at all. He loves it and gets so excited when I fill it up and it is so funny to watch him manoeuvre it underneath and around all the furniture.
I bought this exact toy for my GSD over 2yrs ago and it is still intact. The toy is very durable, I would say it is the best bordem breaker toy in the kong range. My Gsd is 6yrs old now and still has great fun getting all the treats out of it. She is a master of this toy. It is safe to leave with your dog when out too.
Tuff enjoyable toy
Finding a tough toy that can withstand a pounding and strong teeth is extremely hard. The Kong wobbler is pushed around and then he finds a treat dispensed. The Kong wobbler does not roll but it tilts then spins around so it is unpredictable keeping our dog's attention. Most toys are ruined within a day or so so well done to the Large Kong Wobbler
Excellent and hygienic too!
This is a great dog treat toy. It is weighted at the base and, when the dog pushes it, it wobbles and spins. Unlike other brands (such as the cube type or basic ball with a hole) this unscrews, which makes it easy to fill. Being able to unscrew it also means one can thoroughly clean the inside, which makes it far more hygienic than other designs (after all, many kibbles can leave a rather oily dust behind). This snack ball would be ideal for dogs that eat their kibble too quickly. The only negative aspect of giving my dog this ball is that he makes such a noise with it by whacking it into skirting boards and cupboards!
I showed this to my dog and he immediately "got it" and started working to get the treats out. I used smaller treats to start so he was rewarded quickly and then put in some larger ones that he really had to work for. He has spent the last 45 mins playing very happily with a very waggy tail. Loves it.
can't recommend it enough
The kong wobbler has made feeding my 8 month old (now 11 month old) labrador/schnauzer cross puppy so entertaining and rewarding. Like an earlier reviewer it makes lots of noise bashing about in the hallway of the house which makes me wonder what the neighbours think. But the entertainment of watching him over-rides any concern I might have about the neighbours. I have also used it in the garden. It is so sturdy it withstands the 'abuse' it gets on the hard surfaces and there's not too much damage to skirting boards and doors. I love the way it dispenses the goodies only when the bowler makes the effort to get them. When I use it outdoors I also use the kong stuff-a-ball to add some entertainment and challenge for the pup. I wouldn't be without the 'kong' products that I have. I plan to collect the full range that are recommended for the chewer fella that I have taken on.
can't recommend highly enough
My spanish water dog sometimes takes a bit of coaxing to eat dried food out of a bowl. But , if he is given it in this, he will eat with vigour! He would become despondent if he had to work too hard for a whole portion of food. I do have to refill it, as , if you overfill it, it obviously won't wobble very much. It is so easy to clean. We had a buster ball too, which is great for my little sheltie as she needs such a small quantity of food and it is harder. The trouble with that one is that it won't come apart to empty and clean, unlike the Kong wobbler.Great for any age dog.
Lab loves it
Our 11 month Lab has had his for 4 months and loves it. It is a bit easy but we make it harder for him by putting larger items in to block the hole slightly. He found the concept easy to pick up and it is very sturdy.
Kong is king!
This toy is a firm favourite with my Staffy, Jody. It is made of rock-hard, smooth plastic that is very robust (as it needs to be) and all but impossible for a dog to get hold of in its jaws, ensuring it will likely last a lifetime. You may initially have to teach your dog how to use it; my Jody was already used to her similar Kong Classic so she got stuck into the Wobbler straight away. It has a large capacity so that it is possible to use it as an entire meal dispenser with dry food (size of morsels permitting).
There are some downsides. One (no fault of the product per se) is that as your dog pushes it around it can make a lot of noise banging against things and it could cause damage. If you live above anyone and have hard flooring, your neighbour may end up throwing a wobbler of his own. Also, as your dog pushes it around (feverishly) it will do so without any consideration for vases, waste bins, ironing boards, bare ankles...so be warned! Another potential problem is the size of the dispensing hole. If the treats you have are particularly small they just spill out very quickly and the fun factor or use as a feeding pacemaker is minimal. Larger treats that won't fall through the hole are even more inappropriate and what is more, this has proved to be the case with what seems to be the standard size of dry food morsel. I have had to cut treats to size or partially tape over the hole.
Unfortunately for me the Wobbler fits under my lounge coffee table and always gets stuck there with my Staffy barking for me to free it. It then makes one circuit of the room, only to wind up right back again. Notwithstanding these drawbacks my Jody definately loves the Wobbler and gets excited when she sees me pick it up. It is hilarious to watch her play with it; if she can't get a treat out of it fairly quickly she becomes frustrated and growls and barks at it. Sometimes this coincides with it dispensing a treat which makes her think the growling caused it! At other times she is so intent on driving it across the floor that she fails to see a dispensed treat and that it makes it more hilarious when she starts barking at it.
This is really very good product for your pet.
