    I found it the day I posted this...was way under the bed, hidden in the dark. They have lost it a few times since then. The ball is 7 inches around, so no chance of them swallowing it. They love these treat balls.

    Happy days again! Nice size for a treat ball. That way they won't swallow it.

    I tried this large egg shaped US one since Sansa keeps destroying the "rattle balls" I've been making her from those "gashapon" capsules my friend's kid always has. (I have to wrap them in clear packing take so if...or more like when they crack, no sharp edges stick out) Unfortunately, the design is terrible, food is either too small to stay in or too large to ever come out (talk about a torture toy!)

    Then I discovered this thing:

    By "Doggieman" here in Japan...like so many other things here, they basically copied the treat ball idea but put more effort into the design. I dunno what the retail is on it but for about $5 USD, it's a steal!

    I measure Karma's daily allotment of kibble each morning and put some of that in the ball. The slot adjusts to make dispensing easier or harder. I only use it if I'm going to be gone a couple hours. It keeps her occupied and she's not eating any additional food.

    Oh my! I've had this experience twice! When I finally go to my reward, and my heirs are left to clean up what's left of my worldly possessions, they will find those balls somewhere inside this domicile, and wonder, perhaps, what they are, and how they got where they were found.:confused2:

    Wow, definitely the same as the one I ordered. Looks like it's just re branded here in Japan.

    Shelby had a treat ball and she loved it. Didn't take long for her to figure out how to open it and eat the food, then come carrying the opened ball back to me. I still can't believe she was able to unscrew the ball with her teeth.

    We then got a bottle dispensing treat. That didn't last either. She broke the top off!

    Sometimes they are too smart.
