The Toy With Built-In Rewards
Busy Buddy interactive toys are made for exactly what the name says—keeping your buddy busy doing the thing he loves to do (chew). These durable treat-holding toys give him an extra reward for chewing the things he should be chewing, instead of the furniture. Playtime is sure to last much longer as he tries to solve the puzzle to get to the tasty rawhide rings.
A Satisfying Challenge for Your Pup
Dogs love to chew because it satisfies instinctual urges. Busy Buddy toys give them the same satisfaction they would get by catching prey in the wild and being able to eat what they catch. There's a Busy Buddy toy for every type of four-legged hunter, and each is made with durable nylon and rubber that has a pleasant vanilla scent.
More Than Just a Puzzle Toy
Aside from being a fun and challenging puzzle toy, the Busy Buddy can help prevent bad behaviors like inappropriate chewing, excessive barking and digging through the trash. It's also the perfect solution for separation anxiety or boredom and makes a great training reward. The varied textures and rawhide rings keep pups content and engaged for hours.
Treat Ring Refills
You can refill your dog's Busy Buddy with several flavors of treat rings, including natural rawhide, peanut butter or bacon. Some have added health benefits, like the Dental Support rings that help clean teeth and freshen breath, or Joint Support rings with glucosamine and chondroitin. Each package is labeled with the ring size that will fit.
Ultra Toys for Determined Chewers
For heavy chewers, a Busy Buddy Ultra toy might be the best option. They're designed to challenge your dog even more than regular Busy Buddy toys. The Ultra Sub has treat rings that spin, and the Ultra Stratos is the same diameter as the rings, making them harder to grip. The cone-shaped ends of the Ultra Woofer present a trickier challenge as your dog figures out how to get to the ring.

Our English bulldogs LOVE the Busy Buddy Bristle Bone toy!
on Feb 15, 2018
Our two English bulldog girls love, LOVE! this toy. They are a heavy chewer and will destroy any toys in a matter of minutes. So far...the toy is holding up. The end and middle nyla part is chewed on. Bristle and rubber nub is still in tack so that's a good thing. We have not put the rawhide treat in it because of our girls sensitivity to new food or treats. But they love it nevertheless.
I'm ordering another large bone today so my Bella doesn't have to wait for her sister Beatrice to share. And we'll have peace and quiet in the house...maybe..
Great chew toy!

This toy has by far been the best investment (and it is affordable which is a plus) toy so far for my 4 month old HEAVY chewer Australian Cattle Dog. He goes through toys withing hours and sometimes minutes but this has kept up with him and I am impressed! I saw some reviews where it was chewed through etc and didn't last but I got it anyways in hopes it would stand the test of his tiny little razor sharp cattle dog teeth and it has! I'll be buying more from this line soon. Do yourself a favor and order more rawhide replacements along with it just so you're prepared. We have had to replace one set already but it takes him awhile to get them down to where they need replacing. Great toy!
My terrier is brushing her own teeth
on Mar 20, 2018
Two years ago I spent over $800 to get my girl’s teeth cleaned so I thought maybe this could help. My wire fox terrier is picky about toys that don’t have a squeaky she can’t rip out in 10 min. I was shocked that after Giving her this bone she spent at least an hour of her tenacious energy to get the treats all while brushing her teeth! The only thing is to make sure you buy the right refill treats. My toy was a small but I had to buy M treats.
Not for heavy chewers!
on Feb 16, 2018
We have a 14 month old Husky/Heeler mix and she is a HEAVY chewer! I had hoped that this product would be a lasting fun way to keep her occupied and clean her teeth all at the same time. I got it, took it apart, washed the pieces, put it back together with the treat discs and then gave it to our dog. With in 30 minutes our dog had gotten it apart and chewed the bristle discs until they were no longer usable. Waste of money for me!
Power chewer destroyed first chew.
on Feb 4, 2018
Okay my dogs love them. I have a lab and a corgi beagle mix. The first chew they destroyed them before they finished the treat. Even managed to get parts of the rubber off. Im glad I was watching them closely as I do with any new product. They just aren't strong enough for my dogs. I give them nylabones often but these appear to be softer in comparison. If you have soft chew dog they will love these, but in comparison to my breeds they will destroy them. I gave 4 stars because they loved them. But for the cost they should just advertise not for power chewers.
Entertaining but don't use the bristle piece for big chewers
on Mar 7, 2018
When I saw this product and watched the video I was excited about getting this for my German Shepherd who LOVES to chew. I thought it would be a great way for him to brush his teeth AND get a treat at the same time. Well, he managed to chew off all of the bristles in an effort to get the treat (which I didn't notice until I saw a bit of blood on the center piece). The sides of the piece holding the bristle became rough and scratched his gums...nothing horrible but I wouldn't recommend the bristle part for a heavy chewer. We have since thrown that piece away and only use the purple pieces (which are a different type of plastic and seem to be good stimulation for his gums) with the treats andWhen I saw this product and watched the video I was excited about getting this for my German Shepherd who LOVES to chew.

Favorite toy by far!
on Jan 24, 2018
Our dog absolutely loves this thing. She gets all excited, jumping around while we fill it with the treats and gleefully runs off with it. She then spends the next several hours focused on removing said treats and even when the treats are gone she still goes at it trying to get any little morsels that remain. It has held up the her gnawing at it nonstop and she has yet to become bored with it.
Maybe for big dogs
on Apr 7, 2018
For the first couple days, my two shibas would take turns standing over it and screaming at each other. Then the finally started chewing it, but were able to rip the rings off pretty quickly, so not the extended chewing/bristle brushing I expected. After that, one lost interest and the other just likes throwing it around to hear the banging noises the heavy hard plastic makes on the floors.
Great For Getting Your Chew On
on Mar 7, 2018
This is great very heavy chewers like mine! Make sure after you put the rawhide on you twist tightly; I apparently did not initially and within a few minutes she had it untwisted and and was chewing up the rawhide. Tightens really well and your baby can then go to town on it and then you're good to go! My girl lays on her bed and gets her chew on ( better that than my furniture).
the worst toy purchased
on Mar 15, 2018
The design is horrible the treats in the middle hard to get to and most of rawhide treats can not be accessed. Your dog is primarily chewing on the hard plastic on the ends. The bristles are so course I removed them from the toy.
So the toy and then additional cost for rawhide treats is not worth it. I put it all in the garbage.
