Highly engaging, great toy

I bought this for my very active dog when she fractured her paw and had to rest. I hoped that this toy would provide some mental stimulation to keep her from missing her regular fetch sessions! This toy keeps her entertained for hours. She loves to eat her meals out of it but she also carries it around to chew on all day even without kibble. She generally destroys toys quickly but this material has held up well over the last few weeks. It’s comparable to her favorite Kong chew toys but keeps her engaged for much longer and has definitely become her favorite! 10/10 would recommend!

Busy Buddy Barnacle Treat Dispenser

I love this toy, I toss it around and kibble comes out! My Mom fills it up every day and I have fun! One negative thing, can’t get kibble to come out the small ball even after cutting the flaps so that one isn’t used. The other two work great didn’t have to cut anything

Total trash.

This one smelled so bad it is still outside hidden from our German Shepard. We have just thrown this one out.

Great toy.

This keeps our Westie puppy busy, and she just loves to work on it. It’s tough and made well.

You have to find the “right” treats for this toy

I got the largest size of this for my Bloodhound mix. She’s an extremely smart dog and gets bored easily, so I try to get her interactive toys. It’s really great! However, you may have to try a few different shapes and sizes of treats to see what works best. If they’re too big they won’t come out, if they’re too small it’s too easy. I only gave 4 instead of 5 stars because the smaller chamber is kind of useless. No matter what kind of treats I put in that one she can’t get them out. The best treats for the largest size are broken up stick-type treats stuffed into the big and medium chambers. I think the negative reviews are for the small version of this toy, so maybe only buy the large size for a big dog. It’s a great toy for them.

Great treat dispenser

This works great to keep my dogs busy for a short time getting their meals. The openings are small so I find kibble works but not even the smallest biscuits will come out once inserted. My dogs both enjoy rolling this around for kibble and the material is soft enough that it doesn't damage my furnishings. This toy has a vanilla scent which is not unpleasant, but it is a very strong scent. I find it's best when not used in a small room or near where people are eating.

Tough toy!

This toy is a great toy for rough dogs. She hasn't figured out how to get the cookies out yet! Other toys with somewhat the same design were no challenge for her at all. She is quite proud of this one, however and carries it all around.

LOVE this dispenser

I have three intense chewers who love puzzle dispensers but how torn all of them apart within a week. I’ve tried 3-4 other brands that my dogs were able to tear open. This has lasted MONTHS without tearing or breaking. Love this

Olive got this the other day and spent 2 HOURS totally engrossed! I filled the pockets with a variety of snacks and it was great! I love pet safe chew toys and this exceeded my expectations!

Toy was torn apart on first use and under 10 minutes. My dog was super excited and really enjoyed the toy but I'm more than disappointed at the lack of durability. He didn't even finish getting the treats out.
