Fun for Fido

Dogs love to chew. That’s great for them — but it’s not so good for you when they decide to chew on, say, your favorite shoes. The pet industry has brought us a plethora of diversionary tactics; special treats, various toys, and yet most dog-owners can tell you that rawhides stick to the carpet and those things you can fill with peanut butter result in puddles of sticky drool. The Kibble Nibble brings together the best aspects of attention-holding toys and treats. It’s a tough chew-proof ball you can fill with regular dog food or small goodies. Your dog’s normal batting, chewing, and playing causes the ball to dispense food at random intervals. (If you find that the food is coming out too quickly, pop a tennis ball inside, too.) The dogs love it because they’re getting both mental and physical stimulation while having a silly good time. You’ll love it because the rubber bumpers mean no scratched floors or crashing noises during play. It’s a cinch to load and clean, too — just unscrew and pop it in your dishwasher’s top rack. The Kibble Nibble is best for dogs 20 pounds and up, and owners who enjoy watching their dogs (happily) obsess.

    @Krista I just wanted to let you know that your whole team was so wonderful to work with. As apparent in the video and story, this toy provides hours of entertainment for my dog Scout.

    We just came back from visiting a couple with a daschund who was chewing everything in sight...any chance you can recommend something for the smaller dog?

    Absolutely! The Kibble Nibble is one of many treat-dispensing toys in our Busy Buddy line, most of which come in smaller sizes, for smaller dogs. The Bouncy Bone is a personal favorite of my teacup Chihuahua (Zeus) because it features three toys (a durable nylon bone, a fun rubber ball, and replaceable treats) in one toy. The Bristle Bone and the Tug-A-Jug are also hugely popular and great for keeping dogs busy with good things to chew.

    Can this be made for smaller animals? I have a large cat about 15 lbs and she loves to bat around balls. I know she would love this. Also my daughter has a small duscand, he is about 5 lbs.

    @Belinda - this particular style isn't currently available for smaller pets. However, it's a great idea to find and feature a similar item for smaller animals. We'll look into that further!

    Indestructable? The dark purple rubberish material chews off. My dog had half of it eaten within 15 minutes. Without, there is nothing left to hold the food in. This might be good for smaller dogs, but my golden retriever destroyed it the first time I gave it to him. Real waste of money.

    @Nancy, we forwarded your message on to Krista and this is her reply. We are so thankful to partner with businesses who truly stand behind their products.

    Please note that Premier doesn’t claim the toy to be indestructible*. As part of the warning we specifically say “…is not considered indestructible.” That said, I am sorry to hear her experience was not a more positive one. The Kibble Nibble is intended to be used as a food dispenser and not really designed for hard-core destructive chewers – we have many other products perfect for that!

    Second, from her reply, it seems as if the treat meter prongs were chewed. The customer can still use the Kibble Nibble even if the treat meters have been chewed off. They can put 1 (or several) ping-pong balls in the KIB NIB to act as a barrier and method of metering food/treats.

    Also, please note that Premier has a 100% satisfaction guarantee. She is welcome to call our customer service department and we will replace her existing Kibble Nibble with a new one OR help her select a toy that is more appropriately matched to her dog’s chewing style.

    *the indestructible language was within our meta-tags but not within our story and has been removed.

    This is a wonderful idea for an activity to keep your dog from being too bored! I've been looking for these type of "toys" for my dogs.
