But it gave me a chance to use our new treat delivery toy from Chewy.com to break the ennui for Toby. This month we're reviewing the Zogoflex Toppl from West Paw Design. This nifty toy comes in two sizes, small and large. We tried the large one, but now I want to get a small one too. More about that in a bit.
The outside is a cup with a small hole in one side. The material is recyclable, free of those nasty BPA's and phthalates that we all know to avoid, and FDA compliant (safe for food consumption). It's so easy to clean too (unlike his Kong toy). Toby is a strong chewer, and the Toppl stood up to his teeth.
The Toppl is designed to wobble for extra fun. I think that would work out great for most dogs, but Toby is dead serious about treats and cleverly uses his paws to keep the toy still. If your dog likes water play, the Toppl floats too.

The real fun is on the inside, where ridges and little flexible nubs are perfect to hide peanut butter, wedge in long treats, or seal in kibble.
Try freezing vegetable broth with cut up carrots (plug the hole with peanut butter) for a long-lasting frozen treat. Coconut water or watermelon juice would also be fantastic.
I will be buying the small Toppl soon. See, you can interlock the two Toppls to create a NEW toy. Kibble or little treats roll out of the holes while your dog plays with it. I'm eager to try that one on Toby!
