Product Review ~ Kong Wobbler

Now I don’t know about you but I am always looking for the next  great dog toy.
With Bully Breeds they have to be durable enough to stand up to  some pretty strong chewers! A bonus is when we can find toys that are not just great to play with but may be great to occupy their attention for a minute also.
I have been a fan of the Kong brand of toys for a while now, so when the Kong Wobbler came out I debated purchasing it for some time. It was around the ballpark of about twenty dollars but as a rescue, money is always tight.

I decided it was worth the cost if it could stand up to our resident puppy Capone and give me some much needed quiet time. After a simple twisting off of the bottom, filling the small cup with a few handfulls of dog food and twisting the top back on, it was play time. Capone had learned to get treats from the Buster Cube *look forward to that review soon* So he was pretty sure that he was a pro at this treat dispenser game. Off and running he swatted and nudged it, rolling it around the floor to get at the food but this dispenser has one hole on one side, so he had to knock it down just right to get the food out. I helped a few times, showing him how to do it and soon he was pushing the toy from one side of the room to the other, bound and determined to get every last morsel of kibble.
So bottom line is this: If you have a dog who requires more supervision/attention/stimulation, this is a great toy to buy. It is easy to fill and refill and not as noisy as the Buster Cube but still durable and relatively inexpensive. You do not need to buy special treats to fill it, dry kibble comes out just fine. It is easy to wash by hand. It is too big to be chewed on however i suggest this toy be used for supervised play.
If you need a half hour or so to get some much needed quiet time, this is a great way to keep your dog happy and busy in a safe way.
Only downside is that this toy, like so many others you put food in, can easily be pushed up to walls or objects making it a bit louder at times.
  • Durable
  • Reasonably Priced
  • Easy to fill
