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.

Comes with all-natural rawhide treats
Nylon bristles and rubber nubs that stimulate the gums and remove plaque and tartar

Available in multiple sizes
As with any pet toy, always supervise your pet while playing.
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.

I do not write many reviews because my dog is not very picky about her toys, and loves to play with everything, BUT. I have to tell you this is the greatest. It was one of her presents for Christmas. (LOL, yes my dog gets Christmas present.) I put it together, and at first she didn’t know what to make of it. She kind of did a dance around it. Took her paw and pounced on it and then realized it could be chewed and it tasted good. For the next 4 hours she was inseparable with that toy. As a matter of fact, she went through the second set of chew ring pieces the next day. The Puppy made the mistake of walking away from it for a moment and her older sister took the toy over for a while.

Pretty good chew toy
on Jan 14, 2018
I have 2 Border Collie/Australian Shepherd mixes, and they both love this bone, and we've had it for a couple weeks, and it's still like new. They normally chew through their bones pretty quickly. The only thing I'm not happy with is the part with the bristles. They chewed through that in about 2 days, then the bristles started coming off and getting stuck in their teeth and throat. As soon as I realized that was happening, I took the bristles parts off and the bone is great again.
Love This for Power Chewer

My dog can go through anything like a wood chipper.He did eventually destroy this, but took him 3 months to do it.It keeps him entertained and & is good when we want him to have a quiet time. It works better if we use the thick rawhide rings. He has the thin ones out in no time.They do come unscrewed and fall apart, so check them often during chewing time and tighten up occasionally.
Dewey loved it, but not for heavy chewers

My dog loved this toy so much. He started chewing on it right away. It was a challenge for him to get the rawhide which was great (hence 3 stars), but I noticed he started getting the bristles chewed off. So like most chew toys, do not let your dog chew on this unsupervised. If you have a heavy chewer, I would just stay away from it period.
So much nope....and it's big

My dog loves the Jack by Busy Buddy, so I thought I'd give this a try as a toothbrush. Noooooope. Hates it. Won't go near it. My dog is a Min Pin, topping out at 14 pounds, and this is still too big. Luckily, Chewy has the best customer service on the planet. It seems I need the dental chews, but the dog gets to decide that one. Sigh.
Excellent Busy Toy that Truly Cleans Teeth
on Jan 16, 2018
I have loved this bristle bone for about nine years now! An excellent toy that does double duty as a toothbrush and gum massage. I leave two of these, each in a different room, when I have to leave for work and it keeps my dog occupied for the first minutes of separation anxiety.

I just bought this and the end comes off too easily. I was washing dishes and turned around and she had gotten the end off and chewed the rod they go on and now I can't screw it back on. Shame because I've gotten them before at local pet stores and she's loved them.
Keeps my chewer happy

My 18 lb Schnauzer is a notorious chewer. Have ordered several supposedly tough toys for her and she destroys them all. The bristle bone dog toy has been the absolute best. So good in fact I bought another one for my less rambunctious schnauzer.

My dogs have numerous Nylabone products and this is pretty comparable to those. What's nice about it is you can add in the Rawhide rings as you want. So you can check into it at first and then never replace them and they still love it.

I didn't read anything, gave to my big dog who took it outside and destroyed it. I didn't open the package and didn't know about the treat rings. I bought 2 more, paid attention and let the dogs have it 15 minutes a day. Then I had to buy a 3rd one because three dogs always stealing from each other. Everyone is happy now, the bone stays inside and they are supervised. They LOVE it, just need to monitor the play time.
