  • Terrible for treat dispensing

    By on

    I bought this for my golden doodle and put his treats in it like I do the kong for my golden retriever. and the treats won't come out!! I literally had to squeeze the buddy different ways to get a treat to come out. Some of them are still in there. Sizing isn't a problem, it just does not work for treats. My doodle pawed it around but gave up after nothing happened. Waste of money. I can't load them up with peanut butter all the time.

  • Too tough for my dog

    By on

    My dog loves the Busy Buddy waggle dog toy made by same brand, so we gave the adorable squirrel dude a try. Sadly, he doesn't love it. Maybe it's too heavy or not squishy enough to chew on but he just gives up trying to get the treats out. Guess we'll stick to the barbell shaped busy buddy waggle toy.

  • Heavy but smaller then expected and the hole is too large for our snacks

    By on

    It is heavier then it looked on line and a little smaller then expected. The hole is much larger then we thought it would be and the treats we use fall out way too easy, however we are using this for pig pellets, not dog treats. It seems like very good quality, sturdy material!

  • Better than Kong

    By on

    I bought one of these and a large Kong. The medium size if this one was the same size as the large Kong and is still in one piece. My staffie mix pretty much destroyed the Kong which was for my lab, but she has not even put a dent in this one. I will likely be ordering another one of these to replace the Kong.

    My dog loves it I bought this to take to my mother's so he can play with it there. I have 2 at home so one can be washed and dried while he plays with the other.

  • The squirrel obssession continues...

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    So my dog, like most dogs I imagine, fixates on squirrels like no ones business. Since we don't really feed him out of bowls any more (he scarfs it down too fast) we bought this and a few other interactive food toys. This one is hilarious!!! My dog picks it up and shakes it, and since the hole on the bottom has little prongs, the food doesn't come out as quick as you think it might. I'm thinking of putting more compact food in it next (something like you might do with a Kong). My dog loves carrying it around even when the food is long gone - great feeding toy!!

  • My fur babies loooove this dude!

    By on

    I got the small for my two chiweenies, and it's perfect! They still play with their kong but treats are tricky to put into the kong, most of the time I use peanut butter which can get a bit messy, but with this squirrel dude I can put a few small treats into his little purple bum and it entertains them forever! I did trim the little thingys that keep the treats in so that they could eventually get the treat out but other than that, it's wonderful!

    My blind pitbull loves his busy buddy. It is very durable and made of rubber so it does not make a lot of noise, like other treat dispensers might. I give it to him daily with a small amount of food and treats and he bats it around for about 15 minutes, having the time of his life! Excellent durable rubber, but he is not a strong chewer, he just wants his food! I did have to cut the little rubber strips slightly, as nothing was coming out, now it is perfect!

  • Happy with the squirrel

    Not sure why but this has become my yorkie puppy's favorite allowed chew toy. It hasn't replaced the furniture but it has helped.

  • Great toy for dispensing treats!

    By on

    My Boston Terrier has a tendency to inhale treats and then cry for more! I bought this toy as a Christmas present for him in hopes it would keep him busy and it does the job! I have not trimmed the tines on the inside so I break the treats into small enough pieces where they'll eventually come out but he has to work for them. He'll try to dispense the treats for about 20-30 mins. and then will come to me for help. He loves it so much that he's started launching the squirrel at me until I get the hint! I highly recommend this product! It stimulates bored dogs and keeps them entertained!
