First Things First - Where to Find Yumz

Yes, this is a sponsored review / post. All ideas, content, and opinions are ours alone. Thanks to Rogz for providing a toy to give away.

Rogz is based on South Africa. The company has a relationship with KONG. Rogz distributes KONG products there. KONG distributes Rogz products here. KONG's headquarters is in my hometown of Golden, Colorado, USA. I had the chance to tour their factory once. Check it out.

And, of course, you can find Rogz dog toys on Amazon (with free Prime shipping for Prime members), where the:

  • Small Yumz is $7.99.
  • Medium Yumz is $10.99.
  • Large Yumz is $12.99.

For our canine heroines, Clover and Tori, who are 34 and 42 pounds, the medium size works great.

Yumz Dog Toy Review

Essentially, Yumz are food / treat-delivery toys with a central void that can be filled with dry or wet dog food or treats. To make things more challenging -- but not too much -- the central void features a few little "fingers" that keep the dry food and treats from simply pouring out as dogs chew upon and toss around the Yumz toy. 

I'm thankful that Yumz soft material is relatively quiet on our tile floors. It's a dull bonking sound that's easy for me to tune out while I write. 

The first time Clover and Tori played with this Yumz dog toy review, I put whole, fairly large venison treats inside. It was hard to get the treats out, and the puppy-girls played with the toys for more than an hour -- which is saying a lot for smart, active dogs. 

The next morning, the first thing they did was LOOK for their Yumz toys.

I cannot think of a better endorsement than that.

Clover figured out how to get the treats out faster than Tori did. Clover uses the crush and toss method. We joke that she likes toys she can really chomp down on because she knows she isn't supposed to pinch Tori that hard. You can tell when she is fighting the urge because she will run and get a toy she can bite when playing with Tori gets too exciting.

Tori is more patient and tries to lick the treats into a softer consistency first, but she did learn to throw the toy to get treats to bounce out.

  1. My dogs Cricket and Runner have always loved to chew on stuffed KONGS. They each get a KONG while their humans eat their own dinner. I would LOVE to purchase something new for my boys and the YUMZ would be great for them ;-).

  2. Chester loves any toy he can get food out of, he’d rather do that than eat out of his dish. 🙂 He’d have a blast with one of these toys.
