Best Dog Treat Ball | Fun And Helpful

Sometimes as a dog parent it is necessary to find that one thing can help us and our dog.  Yes it helps both of us. Is your dog a fast eater that doesn’t chew his food?  Is your dog bored and you need something new to keep them occupied?  These are just a few of the reasons why every dog parent should have a treat ball for their dog.  Keep reading to find out the best dog treat ball for your dog.

It is not very often that we can get our dog a toy or ball, that we can also use as an aid to help address a few of our dogs issues.

A toy like this is truly the perfect addition to every toy box, and the best thing about them is they range in price from $10-20 USD, so very inexpensive.

How, what & why

What is a treat ball?  Well it is exactly as the name says, a ball that you can put things like treats and dog food in.  The name treat ball, can cause people to think that this toy can only be used as a way to give your dog a treat.  Very misleading.  In truth using them is actually an amazing way to help with issues like:

  • Slowing your dog down when he eats
  • Mental stimulation
  • Stops your dog from being bored
  • Slow your dog down overall (energy)
  • Entertain and fun to play with

What makes them such a helpful aid and why people love them, is simple…. They are so easy to use.  You simply pick the one ball that fits your size of treat or kibble.  Load up the ball with some treats they like or their food depending on the way you are going to use the ball.

Once you load up the ball with goodies, simply put it on the floor and roll it around.  The treats fall out as it rolls. Your dog may even push it with their paw, or nose to move it around to encourage the treats or food to fall out.  This will even encourage them more to keep going.  If you are using the ball for slowing their eating down, you can see why it works so well.  They can’t gorge their food all at once, it is a simple easy fix.

Overall they are a great way to keep your dog occupied.  If you are using it for pure fun and entertainment, you can put a really delicious treat in the ball and they will continue to chase after it to keep them occupied and busy.  They may even figure out that if they hit the ball with their nose or paw, treats will fall out more often.  What a great way to make them think about what they are doing.

Now we know why they are perfect, let’s see some of the best ones available.

Treat balls

These are 4 of the best dog treat balls on the market today.   As you can see there are many sizes and shapes to choose from.  Depending on your dog, and also how and why you are using the ball, will help make the decision of which choice is best for you.  It’s not like there is a right or wrong choice.  Whatever one you choose, your dog is going to love it.

The one thing that is awesome about all of these balls, is that they all will entertain your dog, stimulate your dog and provide hours of fun.  Trainers and dog behaviorists recommend using treat dispensing toys for all dogs.  They believe that the mental stimulation that happens when your dog uses one, can help deter bad behavior.  Like many things with dogs, distraction is sometimes just what is needed

I said at that the start of the post that these treat balls will benefit both the dog and us dog parents.   Simply by giving your dog the ball and keeping him gives us the ability to get that break that we need.   Dog parenting can be hard work at times, so as a dog parent myself, I am always looking for a little assistance from a good toy.

If you are looking for some other dog toys that will keep your dog busy, check out a few of my other posts, for some great toy ideas.

I hope that you enjoyed reading my post and that your dog will soon be enjoying their own hours of fun with a dispensing treat ball.

  1. Being a dog lover, I am glad I found your article when I am trying to find the great review talking about doggie treat ball.

    I have come across other reviewing sites, but they’re not thorough as yours. I definitely gonna try one of those, especially the “YOUNGEVER 2 PACK”, that looks interesting.

    However, do you know if there are other options with cheaper pricing? Because the recommendation that you give is quite pricy for me after including the shipping fee.

    I have saved your article for later use! Thanks for sharing, my friend!


    • Hi Zac,

      Thank you for your wonderful comments on my post.  I am so glad that you enjoyed reading it and found it helpful.  To answer your question about a cheaper priced version of this toy, that depends on where you are ordering from and where you live. 

      The cheapest toy if you live in Canada  for treat balls that is under $9 CDN is the Omega Paw ball.  If you live in the US, the JW HOL-ee  is the cheapest one at just under $9 USD.

      I hope that helps. Thanks again.
