The three-in-one Starmark Treat Dispensing Chew Ball is perfect for owners and their multi-tasking dogs because the ball simultaneously satisfies a dog’s needs to play, think, and chew.
The Starmark Treat Dispensing Chew Ball is made in the United States from a safe, non-toxic, virtually indestructible material that is stronger than rubber and free from harmful BPA, phthalates, and vinyl. The durable yet springy material can withstand a super-chewer’s crushing grip while offering a gentle, compressible feel to entice soft-mouth dogs. Your dog can safely sink his or her teeth into the ball over and over again, without a visible mark or dental damage. Despite its hollow shape, the empty ball bounces well and also floats, adding variety to play sessions—no treats necessary!
The Starmark Treat Dispensing Chew Ball features a unique, clover-shaped opening on either side that can be customized to fit your dog’s treats or kibble, and makes a great food puzzle. Treats are randomly released as your dog rolls and squeezes the ball, which encourages physical activity and reduces anxiety, boredom, and undesirable behaviors. The ball is available in three sizes (i.e., medium, medium/large, and large, with the medium approximately the size of a tennis ball). For strong chewers or meal-feeding, purchase the next size up.
To clean off the drool, hair, and food residue, simply place the Starmark Treat Dispensing Chew Ball in the top rack of the dishwasher. Avoid the heated dry cycle, which may shrink or damage the material.
The ball is flavor- and coating-free, although the light vanilla scent, which is not disclosed in the product description or on the packaging, may put off some dogs and owners.
The Starmark Treat Dispensing Chew Ball’s durability and mental stimulation make the toy a best-in-show for many dog owners. Highlights from five-star reviews include:
- “He LOVES this ball … he has been chewing it a lot, and there is no evidence of chewing! It is made of magical stuff that is not rigid like most tough toys, so he gets that sensation of compressing the ball.”
- “It keeps her occupied and rewards her for playing. Because it’s bouncy, she even likes it when it’s empty.”
