    Hello. The measurements of the structure aren't fixed. They're dependent on the lengths of the flinging arm (in my case the dog ball thrower) and the spring (thickness, length, strength).

    Hi Peter, thanks very much!
    Good question. She'll definitely try to get at ANY available food. I chose the pvc, partly, so she couldn't see any food - it was 'miraculously being thrown from this machine' (dog's thoughts).
    Additionally, I don't leave it sitting with food in it where she can get at it. She is only near it when it's operating and flinging food. Which generally keeps her excited and busy.
    Naturally, she's sniffed and licked it. But I never fill it up enough so that she can see the dog biscuits in the pipe. So she can sniff and lick all she likes, but no food.
    I also agree with you, she's a little afraid of the motor noise and movement. Luckily ;)
