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.

    I bought this toy to help with my puppy’s separation anxiety. However, my dog just barked at them. She never barks so needless to say I won’t be using these toys.

    Complicated

    By on

    She tired of trying to get treats from the treat and it wasn’t easy to snipe the prongs to make it more interesting to her. I’ve haven’t bothered with the three ball one, yet.

    Both dogs absolutely love these! They also do seem to be helping with the stress from fireworks and thunderstorms.

    Calming toy

    By on

    I don't recommend this toy it's suppose to be for calming and it hasn't helped one bit it was very expensive. So I've had to go else where and put my 7 month old Lab on doggie Prozac for separation anxiety and hyperness 20 mg a day. I love Chewy but not this toy for calming him down he doesn't play with it at all even with treats in it.

    Favorite new toy!

    By on Top 10 Contributor

    My 6 year old pittie had a TPLO surgery and for 12 weeks she is stuck in a crate... and bored out of her mind. I got this because it looks more complicated than a kong but not as difficult as a starmark ... she loves it. Can take her cone off and she forgets about her leg!

    Dog loved it but...

    By on

    My pitbull mix puppy loved this toy, for about two days until he chewed it to pieces. I ordered this toy because it is advertised as tough, but it definitely is not. It only lasted two days because he got other toys for Christmas that he played with simultaneously. And I did not see any indication that it calmed him. Would not recommend this for anyone with moderate to tough chewers.

    Cute but too small

    By on

    To all the other reviews who said the medium size is still fairly big, no. It is not. The squirrel is surprisingly small, really only big enough for a cocker spaniel at most. The barrel looking one is almost double in size though.

    Good for slow feeding

    By on

    My dog mastered his last slow feeder, so I wanted to try something new. The inside triangles that keep the food from falling out were a little too much, so I cut a few of them back so it wasn't impossible for him. I put wet food in the large part of the barnacle toy and it took him like 45 minutes to get it all out. I'm not sure if it actually has a calming affect on him, but there was construction right outside our apartment all day and he seemed pretty chill about it, only barked a few times... maybe it did work. The toys are great for treats and dry kibble too, they seem to be quite challenging, but he loves chewing, nudging, licking, and moving the toys around to get all the snacks out.

    Occupying her time

    This is a great toy to help to occupy my sweet Matilda's time. I am saving the second one for her Christmas stocking--shhh, don't tell.

    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.
