Rated 5 out of 5 by Glumelf 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by janie333 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyMama6 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WatchdogPetSitting Great for cleaning teeth as well as keeping my chewers busy
I use the rawhide rings occasionally as a special treat but I what I mostly use these for is teeth cleaning. My dogs can chew! They get their teeth brushed every other day and plague foam on the off days but there are definite times where I slack so I put their favorite flavored tooth paste on the bristles and let them do the work for once. I do have to screw these on tight because one of my pups has a massive jaw and can get them unscrewed which is undesirable since he will eat the rubber rings and destroy the screw ends.

by Agusia Keeps them happy & busy ...
We have two pups; 53 lbs Australian Heeler & 68 lbs GS – they both love this toy. I ordered size large, which I must say is really huge. I will probably order a M next time around. Although they like the L too. This brand of toys is made out of a very durable/hard plastic mass so even though it’s soft enough for them to chew on it’s plenty hard to avoid breaking. I also got the bacon flavor rings. Keeps them busy and happy for a while….

My Golden Retriever ate the purple rubber ring!
I love my other Busy Buddy Rollie but this one is not durable.
