Description

The Busy Buddy Calming Dog Toy pack includes two durable, treat-dispensing chew toys. These interactive rubber toys have a calming chamomile scent that helps relieve your dog’s anxieties as he/she chews and searches for treats. You can fill them with dry kibble, a favorite treat, peanut butter, yogurt or freeze-dried dog food—the options are endless. The patented Treat Meter features soft prongs that help hold the treats inside the toy for an extra challenge. Busy Buddy Calming toys are recommended by professional dog trainers and are great for separation anxiety. Choose the small size for breeds 10-20 pounds (Jack Russells, Pugs, Yorkies) or the medium for dogs 20-50 pounds (Beagles, Spaniels, Border Collies).

Key Benefits
  • Features a calming chamomile scent that helps relieve your dog’s anxiety symptoms as he/she chews and searches for treats
  • Can be filled with dry kibble, a favorite treat, peanut butter, yogurt or freeze-dried dog food
  • Treat Meter features soft prongs that help hold the treats inside the toy for an extra challenge
  • Recommended by professional dog trainers and are great for separation anxiety
  • Perfect for thunderstorms, fireworks, vet visits, car rides, barking and other stressful activities

Every dog plays differently and, since not all toys are created equal, it’s always best to keep a close watch on your pup in case things get ruff. Supervised play will help toys last longer and most importantly keep your pal safe. No dog toy is truly indestructible, so always remove the toy from playtime if pieces begin to break off.

Instructions

Load the toys with your dog’s favorite treats or kibble. If you would like treats to come out faster, you can trim the Treat Meter prongs. Once the prongs are cut, there’s no going back, so we recommend trimming only a little at a time and then testing.

    Unhappy doggie

    By on

    We put treats in and our 6 month old husky was not happy in retrieving treats. We cut the inner holdings back but she doesn’t seem to really work with it and it it’s quit heavy. The scent is good just doesn’t work for our fur baby.

    Disappointing

    My dogs didn't care for this toy at all. While it has a pleasant scent, I didn't see any trace of an impact on my animals.

    These smell good!

    These are good for dogs who like to chase things. They bounce around in a crazy way when you toss them. I'm not sure they actually calm my dog, but he likes trying to catch them.

    These are great!

    My anxious little basset hound mix loves these!! They have a strong chamomile smell, which is really relaxing. My pup likes all the nooks and crannies and various places to hide treats. We've only had this toy in rotation for a few days, but I'm hopeful that the chamomile scent will stick around.

    My dogs are pretty hard core chewers and this toy has lasted over a year now. I'm not sure if it really "calms" them or if they are just really into the toy so they sit still longer. Either way I do recommend!

    Huge Home Run for Anxious Dog

    By on

    We adopted our dog from animal control a few weeks ago. She had been on the street for an unknown length of time and was traumatized. Although we avoided leaving her at first, there were a few occasions when we needed to be away for an hour or two. This triggered some very extreme and destructive doggy separation anxiety. We decided we needed something to soothe her (since she loves to chew) and to entertain her during crate time. She destroyed a Kong in one day, but from that experience we found out that she was treat-motivated. We gave her the barnacle from this calming toy set and stuffed it with her little training treats.

She destroyed a Kong in one day, but from that experience we found out that she was treat-motivated. We gave her the barnacle from this calming toy set and stuffed it with her little training treats. We had to show her that there were treats inside, and once she figured out she could flip it around to get treats, she was hooked. She spends lengthy periods of time nudging it around with her nose, pouncing on it with her paws, and flipping it to get treats to pop out. This toy gave her an opportunity to re-learn how to play, and helped her relax enough to enjoy herself. She can also sit down and gnaw on it to soothe herself, and it has yet to give way to her teeth. I don't know whether the aromatherapy works or not, but I do know that this toy gives her a great deal of mental activity to take her mind off her anxiety. She is highly focused on it when she's playing with it. It's the best puzzle toy we have found for her, and once she manages to chew through it, I will buy her another one, because it is indispensable to us now. We call it her 'soothie'. For your reference, she is a 25 pound mutt, probably some type of lab/terrier mix. This toy is a good chewing size for her. … more

    Great for my small dog

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    My small dog had really bad anxiety and these seemed to help him. Always filled with peanut butter, yogurt, or pumpkin, and froze them and he loved it.

    Calming smell

    By on

    The Busy Buddy is an okay toy. You definitely have to cut out some of the plastic holding in the treats. Very hard for dogs to get the treats out and can be frustrating.
