Best. Dog Toy. EVER. by Alyssa from St. Paul, MN12/06/2011
This is definitely both of my dogs' favorite toy. It's a Busy Buddy Squirrel Dude chew toy. It's the size Small, which is perfect for both of their mouths & jaws since they're small breed dogs. It's an absolutely AWESOME toy! It keeps them busy for HOURS, and allows me to get homework done without constant "squeeking" from other toys, and allows me to leave them kenneled while I'm at school and not feel horrible for leaving them bored for a few hours! I've also noticed that it has really helped stop the destructive puppy "bored" behavior in my 8month old dog. It's comparable to a Kong, except (in my opinion) better. It's got little stopper-like sections that keep the treats from coming out of the bottom, unlike an open bottomed kong toy, and thus requires the dogs to work harder for the treats and keeps me from going through so many treats. It's also great because you don't have to use high-in-fat liquid treats - like peanut butter, cheese, or Kong's squeeze-can liver. I use Nutrisentials Lean Treats or the Lean-Beef Pupperoni dog treats. The little pieces make for perfect sized treat stuffing. Plus, this toy is virtually indestructible and dish washer safe. I've had mine for months and despite the bite marks and constant use, it is completely in tact (which I can't say about any other toy I've ever owned) and I know I can always get it very clean and bacteria free in no time with little work on my part. (because hand-washing it is a pain in the rear) And being it is so much cheaper than most dog toys, it has by far been the best toy I've ever spent my money on & I HIGHLY recommend it. For ANY breed of dog.
