Rated 5 out of 5 by gayemacy Durable, Works Great, Dogs See Blue and Yellow - Good color
We've had the satellite feeder for almost two years, and use it almost twice a day, on a stone surface.It has held up to a 40-lb. German pinscher's tossing, rolling, and gnawing. It's not popped its seams or been damaged. Particularly pleased that Kong finally made something in a color dogs can see. Dogs are color blind for red and green, which means they see in the blue and yellow spectrum only (as well as UV light, it's recently been seen in research.) Other colors grey out. His red Kong toys would be grey to him. They've made this in a color he can see.
NOTE: I wash it after use (ants) and need a special tool to get the wet gunk buildup out. Any thoughts?

Rated 5 out of 5 by MomofBrodie My dog loves this!
My cockapoo has loved this since we got it last summer! He prefers it over eating from his bowl. He will smack it around for quite a while, pouncing on the food as it comes out. We love watching him do this. I think it plays to his hunting instincts. He is definitely a high energy dog who needs to play a lot . Yes getting the food in takes a minute but since he is only 15 lbs we only use a 1/2 cup at a time( plus food in his bowl). He doesn't try to chew on it. Life would be boring without his Satellite!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Baikailin Okay, but not the best choice
The toy is made from hard plastic. If my dog bites it too hard, it will just shatter. The toy looks like the food would just fall out and not be a challenge for the dog to get out at all, but surprisingly the food only comes out a bit at a time as the dog moves the toy and turns it over.
The toy doesn't open, and the hole to put the food into isn't large. A funnel would be useful for putting food into the toy. My dog got very anxious when I was trying to get handfuls of food into the toy.
I greatly prefer a toy made of hard rubber that my dog can bite into very hard and only leave small teeth marks. My dog seems to enjoy this material more as well because he can really bite into it when he gets excited.
