And because he hasn't been able to tear it up, it is my favorite ball, too! After months of incessant gnawing, Owl hasn't made a dent.
Previously, I would have said that a squishy, rubber, treat-dispensing ball that could stand up to Owl for months didn't exist! It isn't actually that great as a treat dispenser; for all but the dogs who are brand new to treat dispensers, the treats come out too readily. I like to use it like that but I know it won't be long before the treats (usually kibble) are gone and the game is over. Over in my view, that is, not Owl's. He loves the ball whether it has treats in it or not and he plays with it by the hour. I am very glad that there is a ball that suits Owl - and me - so well!
Owl looks pretty benign in the photos, doesn't he. Just try taking his ball away from him. (You can see his possessiveness in the third photo, when I came closer with the camera.) Owl and I have a good understanding now. It is his until I say "aus" - one time - and then he must relinquish it. He has become good at it, but it took us years to firm it up.
I often reward a quick release by letting him have it right back again - whatever the it is.
