Product Review: Starmark Everlasting Treat Wheeler

The Starmark Everlasting Treat Wheeler is a durable chew toy designed to hold a long-lasting edible Everlasting Treat. The toy can hold two of these treats, and small treats or kibble can also be pushed into the grooves. The Wheeler comes in three sizes for small, medium, and large dogs.

This is the most durable Everlasting Treat holder that I am aware of. Similar to the black Extreme Kong, though probably not quite as tough. The shape also makes it difficult for a lot of dogs to chew effectively, which makes it last longer with power chewers.

A lot of dog owners report that this is the only Starmark toy their dog hasn't demolished in the space of hours. I doubt it's a coincident that this is also the most difficult toy to get the edible treat into, in my opinion. It can hold two Everlasting Treats, but getting that second one in there was nearly impossible. The instructions claim that I can fit some kibble in between the two treats on our small Treat Wheeler, but I'm pretty sure they're lying. The medium and large toys might be different.

Pros: Holds up better than most Everlasting Treat toys. Tire/donut shape makes destructive chewing difficult.

Cons: Difficult-to-chew shape may make it unrewarding for some dogs to chew. A few dogs are super good at popping the treats out of this toy. It is also a pain in the butt to clean, we got sand in the grooves while taking these pictures and no amount of individual scrubbing of each crevice has succeeded in removing it.

Bottom Line: Definitely worth a try for power chewers, especially those that need an edible reason to gnaw on a toy.
