I have a three year old, 60 lbs black lab that can destroy most anything. She plucked that treat plug right out of the treat ball ball in less than 10 minutes and devoured the treat within 15. Not good.
HOWEVER! I placed an apple slice within the middle compartment of the ball and she was challenged for a little less than an hour to get all the apple pieces out. If anything entertains her for more than a half an hour, it’s amazing!

I have 2 retrievers (7 months and 1 year) and they are basically 60 pounds of raging teeth. They destroy virtually every dog toy (not to mention legos, briefcases, shoes, ethernet cables, small trees, socks, … you get the picture) that comes through the house in about 10 minutes. They have never been interested in Kongs and rawhides just only hold their attention for so long.
I found these at the store last week and bought a couple. My dogs won’t leave them alone. They love the “snack balls” that come in them and they withstand hours and hours of chewing. Even my 13-year-old sheltie who doesn’t even like chew toys likes these things… My only complaint? The petsmarts in my area can’t keep them in stock so I have to order online.
If your dog/puppy is a chewing machine… get these toys… lots of them… keep them in the crate, the living room, anywhere your dog hangs out. The shoes you save may be your own!
BTW, to get them interested, you want to find something soooooooo doggie delicious for the inside… give your dog a taste and smell of that before you stuff it in the middle. Then stuff it in the middle and put the “caps” on. also, be sure to let the caps “dry” before giving them to your dog or the caps pop right off (you have to moisten them to make the pop in easier)
I have 2 black lab mix dogs (littermates). They are now 2 years old. They didn’t tell me when I got them that part of the mix was beaver. These dogs can chew anything. If it squeaks, it takes on average 10 seconds from being new to being destroyed. Don’t even get me started on toys that have stuffing. Within the last two weeks, I’ve started allowing them to be uncrated in my house without me there. Previously, they were completely untrustworthy, but I feel really guilty crating them while I’m at work. And I thought they were acting more grown up. Not chewing my stuff, just theirs. So, I came home one day to find a highlighter destroyed (on carpeting, of course). The next day the victim was one of their dog beds that they’d always left alone. So, out of desperation I tried this product (and paid way more than the price at Amazon at a local pet store). These things are AWESOME. They keep their attention for hours and a treat lasts for about 2 days. My one dog loves hers so much that she’s like obsessed with it. And the material it’s made of seems to be unchewable to them (which I initially worried about, having not found anything in nature or manmade that they couldn’t destroy). I love these things.
