It's a doggy dentist's favorite tool and a doggy's favorite chew… all in one! The Busy Buddy Bristle Bone Dog Toy has nylon bristles and rubber nubs that stimulate the gums and remove plaque and tartar as dogs entertain themselves gnawing and chewing trying to get their hard-earned reward: rawhide! Bristle Bone Dog Toys are available in multiple sizes and include 4 treats.
Durable nylon and rubber construction, includes 4 Busy Buddy treat ring refills
Comes with all-natural rawhide treats
Nylon bristles and rubber nubs that stimulate the gums and remove plaque and tartar
Made using compressible rubber that's perfect for medium-strength chewers
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.

Although he's not the real Hooch, he could be his son.
This guy has a power jaw and some viscous teeth.
This is going on 2 years of use and is still in solid shape.
The ends still twist on and have never fallen off or been removed by his chewing.
It does hurt if dog throws it across the room at your leg. ;-)

I got the extra-small for my chihuahua with peanut butter rings; she loves to play with it. Chihuahuas have tooth and bad breath problems, so I wanted to try this. It works because it keeps her interested. I keep one in the house and carry one with us when we go. I recommend it!
Great for Chewers
on Aug 14, 2017
I purchased this a month ago and my dogs love it, it's very durable and helps keep their teeth clean, one of my dogs is a chewer and now he chews on this (with or without the treats) instead of my shoes. Looking forward for them to try the other Petsafe Busy Buddy products..
Busted busy bristle bone
on Jul 3, 2017
My chewer not only got the treats off this bone in record time, he completely dismantaled the entire toy and had the pieces strewn across our living room. He chewed the end where the bone screws together and now it's not useable. Didn't even last one day. :(
Great for Power Chewer
on Jun 29, 2017
This item is amazing! My 8 mo. Doberman puppy is 80lbs, and she destroys things meant for power chewers. So finding something that'll hold up, AND keep her attention is almost impossible. It's nice that it has the bristle as well. I can hear them rubbing on her teeth when she chews the rings.
My only issue is that this comes with rawhide. It isn't good for dogs, and there are so many alternatives. I'd give it five stars if it came with a better option.
Not busy enough
on Jul 26, 2017
I was excited for this toy to arrive thinking my lab would stay entertained for a while but not the case. It holds up but because it is so hard to get to the treat she gives up after a few minutes. Going to try one where the treat it easier to get to.
a must for chewers
on Jul 4, 2017
was skeptical to buy since my lab gets bored easily and or destroys toys in seconds. have had for a week and she still loves and hasn't destroyed it yet. only thing I would change is that the treats should be a little thicker.
Ok for strong chewers
on Jun 16, 2017
My big 95# bully-boxer mix dog can and does destroy everything. The ends of this toy are hard plastic (like nylabone) and she hasn't destroyed them yet. But the inner parts, the bristle and the purple rubber parts, well, they'll have to be replaced soon. My dog does love this and it keeps her interested for long periods, but she has torn the rubber parts to pieces already (2 weeks). Also, I ordered the BBQ-flavored rings and she doesn't care for them as much as the regular ones the toy came with. Not sure if that's a flavor or texture issue.
GREAT COOL-DOWN ATTENTION-GRABBER BUSY TOY!!!
on May 20, 2017
This toy arrived today with our auto-ship order and I could not be more THRILLED! In fact, this is the first product where I could not wait to get online and post a review! I was looking for another toy to accomplish what our Kong Jack does for our energetic but also anxiety-challenged Austrian Cattle Dog! He need toys that can work his mind while also calming his body during cool-down times. At this time, he has been actively laying and working on this bone for one hour and forty-five minutes (and he is showing NO signs of stopping anytime soon). Hopefully this continues and if he starts to lose interest, we will simply switch disk flavors (he is VERY food motivated which is great).

Dogs love it
on Jul 27, 2017
The dogs do love this. Unfortunately when I wasn't watching they were able to unscrew it and chewed on the screw part of bone, so now I can't rescrew it together.
