    Default Everlasting Treat Ball

    Has anyone bought one of these?

    I would like to get something for Taya for when I'm not home, but am worried she won't use it and it will be a waste of money.

    I haven't tried anything like this before, except for filling a rubber spiky thing with peanut butter but she didn't pay any attention to that!

    Leo loves his beanie ball (part of the everlast range, the orange half circle thing) but only takes him 2 minutes to get the treats out and he hates peanut butter/vegemite/cheese spread, none interest him

    Get a kong with a hollow centre ... mix cream cheese with the "powder" I sent you .... smear it all on the inside until it's all packed ... freeze. When you go out ... give the kong to Taya. Trust me ... she'll be happy for a very long time from the reports I've had.

    Hi Loren

    I have the green everlast fun ball - that you can fill with treats. It's the best thing ever. I've bought them for friends' dogs. Frosty does get bored with it occasionally - so I put it in the toy rotation.

    Best thing about it - we've had it over a year, and she hasn't killed it. Tennis balls last about five minutes. I frequently put her kibble in it, and she will eat it out the ball ahead of her dinner bowl.

    To make it take longer, do as GSD' said and fill it with kibble mixed with stock or yoghurt or similar, and freeze it. It does work about the same as a Kong. If your dog is a major destroyer of chew toys, get the black kong - they are supposed to last longer. Green everlast fun ball is doing better than the red kong I stupidly bought for Frosty.

    If you want things to last a while when you're out, have a kong and a fun-ball and some other things and hide them around the house.

    Not that Frosty is very interested in anything much when I'm out but she's gradually relaxing. The rawhide chews (little flat things from bonofido) don't last long despite her being stressed out she still eats those.

    I'd also hide a few other things like roo jerky (I'm not fond of "dried bones" cos of splinters), and pigs ears. And I recently got Frosty a black ball that holds kibble/treats but make a noise like a surprised burmese cat when you roll it over. Unfortunately, Frosty is a bit worried about the noise and won't emtpy it. My neighbour has a silent one, and Frosty is all over that.

    Hmmm ok, sounds like I might have to try the kong. Not looking forward to forking out the money though. But then again I spend so much money on other things for her this isn't really any different! lol

    Hi Loren!!

    I got my "kong ultimate" (or something along those lines) from Big W was literally half the asking price of a few vets and other specialty stores in the area!

    That being said Chloe really isn't that interested in it... She prefers squeaky toys and it doesn't squeak so she snubs it *eyeroll*...

    I might ask in your thread (if its ok!) can you get squeaky ones?

    Eta: i actually read Hyc's post properly (im really tired so bare with me) and have to ask, where did you get it/what was it called

    Sorry Loren!! No more hijacking

    Is it the Blue Everlasting Ball you are talking about?

    I know what you mean with the snubbing haha. Taya's the same. I think a Big W one sound alright, that way if she isn't interested I won't have spent a fortune. And if she does like it and destroys it, I'll get the expensive one.

    You should be ashamed of yourself, hijacking the thread... JJ!!



    Yep I was orignally talking about the blue treat ball. I wonder just how 'tasty' those things really are...

    re squeaky toys. Leo loves them to but always kills the squeakers in minutes! but not BAD CUZ! had for amout 3 weeks, I have left it out a few times when I have gone to work, but mostely just give it to him when i get home to play with for a few hours - and still going strong! Squeaker and all! Highly recommend And its the only toy he will play with for hours on end that you dont have to put food or treats in! Big thumbs up! Plus only cost about $16 i think it was for the large one (large is about 10cm ball with feet)

    I got the black "cat noise" ball from "cheap as chips" for about $5. It's hard, it's black, about the size of a softball, and has pretend tyre tread with paw prints and little embossed "dog bones". I think if she ever does get over the noise and into it seriously the squeaker will die (as it has in my neighbour's same toy) but so far so good.

    I also got a rope ball from the same place which is doing well - she plays with it and it still looks like a rope ball. And I got a few of those mint flavoured? rope "bone" toys there too for about $2.50 ea.

    The lead a friend got from there, of some sort of slippery nylon rope - is now Kaput - didn't last very long at all, Horse leads from equestrian shops much better. So I would choose wisely what you get from there, and I don't get food or treats from there at all.

    If you shop around, the big black Kongs go for between $15 and $35 or so. There are squeaky kongs "Kong Wubba", I got frosty one with seat belt webbing but it didn't take her very long to kill it, and you can't put treats in it. I think a football sock with a $2 squeaker and a tennis ball in it would be cheaper, just as much fun and last just as long.
