Busy Buddy Bristle Bone Dog Toy
Better than having the vet clean teeth!
We discovered these at a trade show and got for our two inside dogs...one who had very bad tartar and had to have her teeth cleaned yearly (probably should have been every 6 months) but I hated that she had to have anesthetic to have the procedure done.
These chews are THE BEST! Both dogs love them and their teeth are constantly cleaned. In fact, my Vet wondered what we had done.
And, the price at Chewy's is by far the best I have found anywhere else. Good job Chewy's!

This product has been great for my dogs. The bristles on it actually brushes their teeth and helps keep the tarter off. Once the raw hide is gone, I do need to take it away from them as they will destroy them by continuing to chew on it. I have two large labs and they love it. Just wish they would have replacement bristles.

What a great toy!
I'm very impressed with the Busy Buddy bristle bone. You take the rawhide disks (some do come with the bone and you can purchase replacement packs) and insert them on to bone. You simply unscrew each end of the bone and place a rawhide disk on each end. They even have cardboard inserts to show you where they go. Very clever! And, our dog does enjoy this bone. She will work for a very long time to eat the rawhide disks. It took a day or so to get all the rawhide out but she eventually got it. Then, I simply replaced the rawhide disks and she's got a like new toy. What a great idea!

Great, durable chew toy
My dog loves this toy and is completely engaged when chewing on it or just playing with it. She is a medium size dog, however, I give her toys for large breeds. She is also a very aggressive chewer and this bone has held up beautifully. It's a wonderful thing too because she has destroyed numerous indestructible toys. She has only gotten it apart once that I can remember but she is able to get the treat rings off surprisingly quickly and, quite often, almost intact. I don't know how she does it because I have never actually seen her do it. However, she is thoroughly engaged while she chews it and she loves the treat rings so I have no hesitation purchasing the replacement treats or replacement bones. I confess, this is her second Busy Buddy. I usually wash it thoroughly by hand when I take it apart to refill it, well, once, out of extreme laziness, I put the separate pieces in the dishwasher (in a container specifically designed for small dishwasher items, I'm not an idiot [hehehe]) and the bristles came out welded together. This is a cautionary tale...do not do this! Do not put your dog's beloved Busy Buddy Bristle Bone toy in the dishwasher! [Phew, I feel much better having gotten that complete lapse in judgement off my chest.] I highly recommend this toy for any pooch but especially so for aggressive chewers.

I have very strong chewers in my house so I need a toy that can stand up to a Labrador! The busy busy bone dog toys are great for all sizes of dogs. I get the smaller ones for the jack Russell I have all the way to the large size for the large dogs I have like my lab and Australian shepherd, the dogs love to chew them and they last! So far they have been the safest toy I have found

What a great idea. My puppy has to work hard for this treat all while getting her gums massaged and teeth being brushed. Love it.

Dog rarely plays with this and Raw Hide only lasted 10 minutes
I purchased the extra small version of this toy for my 8 pound Havanese.
She chewed both raw hide pieces off with in 10 minutes - I leave it in her crate in case she gets bored when I'm away but I've not noticed her chewing on it.
My daughter also purchased one of these for her 2 Boston Terriers - same experience - they quickly chewed the raw hide pieces off and now they rarely pay any attention to the toy.

The pups are obsessed
My two huskies are obsessed with this! They get so excited when I pull them out. So I would have given this 5 stars, but the way they bite at the rawhide doesn't clean their back teeth. I also made the mistake of leaving the first one out afterwards and it was destroyed. Side note: if you have a clever dog, they absolutely will find out how to unscrew them. I have to tighten them down really securely before I hand them over to the pups, and sometimes that doesn't even help with my boy.
