My Dog is Addicted
September 10, 2015
My dog actually picked out the Starmark Everlasting Bento Ball toy (with the treat already inserted) at the pet store. I caved, purchased it, and as soon as she finally finished the treat inside, I knew I had to get more. I found these treat refills cheaper on this website than anywhere else, so I stocked up. My dog is a 60 pound pitbull, not super destructive with toys, but either way I am happy that one disc lasts her about an hour and a half of solid chewing.
ProsThe treat lasts longer than most chew treats/sticks. It is nice when I need my dog to be distracted for a while.
They don't break down much after a slobber fest - you can easily take it away and give it back later and it will have dried without losing much integrity.
Because they don't break down much, they are not very messy. You won't find crumbs and gummy stuff all over your floors.
The smell is sweet, it does not stink like many chews (ie some bully sticks, etc) so it is great indoors.
The toy itself is easy to rinse and clean after each use.
This specific treat is wheat and soy free.
ConsThe treats have corn starch, which may or may not be a red flag for consumers.
The treats are difficult to get into the Everlasting Bento Ball toy. There is a suggestion to moisten the edges of the treat but it still takes a bit of a struggle. Mine is still new though, perhaps when it is broken in, the treats will be easier to get in.
I can imagine the treats wouldn't last quite as long for a more chew-driven/destructive dog.
