Dog entertainment devices: suggestions needed

I'm interested in something that would challenge and reward; preferably something enticing that the dog could pry open to get at treats which could be reloaded as needed. Something better than a kong. Is there such a thing?

This dog chews inappropriate things sometimes, and we are looking for other things to offer her.

A kong stuffed with kibble doesn't keep her busy?

It's pretty easy for the kibble or whatever to fall out. Plus it disappears under furniture.

Pack the kong with peanut butter, milk bone bits etc... and pop it in the freezer for awhile
and it will prolong the pace of the reward. That would keep my doggie busy all morning.

We had great luck with these and a very chew prone Corgi. The treats last a very long time and the ball survived 50x longer than any other chew toy. It finally was completely eaten by a visiting Pit Bull.

And on the cheap side...leave the last 1/8 inch of peanut butter in the bottom of the jar...I swear our Shelties tongue is an inch longer after a day of that....

Our dogs prefer the Cuz. No, it doesn't dispense treats but it squeaks and is virtually indestructible (like the Kong). Cuzes are the only toys they have. I bought a bunch at a local pet store's going out of business sale, very cheap. They come highly recommended.

the everlasting ball does seem to work well. If the dog can pry the treat off, they also sell a double sided screw treat that fills the middle and screws on the outer two treats (we never really tried this, but it looks like it would work).

The ONLY thing my dog doesn't completely maul in a matter of hours....
They LOVE them for some reason, maybe its the frustration of it not being a real bone....

I can't get my dogs interested in Nylabones.

Not cheap, and no "reward" per se, but our dog loves Antlerz.
