  • Great, but only one difficulty level

    By on

    Just got this. We've had the Magic Mushroom for years, and absolutely love it. Figured this had all the same benefits of being essentially chew-proof, easy to load, easy to clean. The only downside is there is no way to change the difficulty level, so as a new toy, my dog is frustrated that she can't figure it out, and has settled for trying to chew through the rope instead of finding the right position to dispense the kibble, so just be aware, you dog might need a little coaching if they get easily discouraged like mine ;) I also wonder if I got a smaller size, if she would figure out the dispensing more easily if she were able to pick the whole thing up.

  • Excellent toy to retain his attention

    By on

    I love this toy ever since I saw a friend using it with her elkhound. My 10 yr old Norwegian Elkhound loves it and will spend an hour on it until it is all gone..the best fill is "Milk-Bone Trail Mix with Real Beef & Sweet Potato Chewy & Crunchy Dog Treats, 20-oz bag " also sold at Chewy. They are small pieces just perfect for this bottle. Otherwise I end up with pieces so small they fall out on their own, or too big and get stuck. My Norwegian Elkhound has tried to chew the plastic but is unable to bite it because it is bigger than his mouth. I would not want a smaller one. It is Med/large.

  • Like But Not Love

    By on

    I bought the Busy Buddy Tug-a-jug for my 35lb Doberman mix, after our previous great experience with the Bob-a-lot. To be honest, the latter is still my favorite. The Tug-a-jug is best on a carpeted floor, as the plastic is very loud when banged around on hard floors, it's hard to close the lid (it doesn't like to screw shut unless it's JUST SO), and it's not easy to clean what with the rope portion. My dog does enjoy it, but she is also exceptionally fond of unknotting rope toys. My recommendation is half-hearted, since there are better versions of food dispensing toys out there.

  • great mind toy

    By on

    This is actually a gift for another dog but we have had one for ours for a few years. Works great. We put some of his food in the bottle and seems to work well without using high calorie treats. FYI, if they chew the rope off, tie it up and put it inside the bottle to make the kibble harder to get out so only a few come out when tipped over.

  • Great distraction

    By on

    I ordered the small for my 40lb cattle dog. It is the perfect size. I do 1 cup of his food at a time. It can fit probably 2.5 to 3 cups. I was really pleased that it ended up being a good level of difficulty. Not too hard, but more challenging than his buster cube. Very pleased!

  • durable and difficult

    By on

    Not for beginner dogs, and a little more difficult than anticipated. BUT! My german shepard/lab loves playing with the rope and swings the bottle around, and SOMETIMES a treat comes out. She's learning that pulling gives her treats, but she usually gnaws on the bottle itself

  • my dogs don't really care for this one

    By on

    I have 2 dogs who can't seem to get their treats out of this one. I have put many different types of treats in this and none of them are able to come out of the end at all.

  • Not for rowdy dogs

    By on

    My pup broke this relatively quickly. A couple good swings was all it took to crack the "jug" part. He loved the rope still once the rest became obsolete though!
