Dog Loves It
This is my dog's favorite bedtime chew toy. It not only entertains her, but also massages her gums and helps to clean her teeth, thanks to the bristles and the rubber discs with protrusions inside the toy.

I have a small female German shepherd who LOVES her busy buddy!!!! Both the bouncy bone and the bristle bone- it has been a wonderful challanging toy for her while I am gone all day! And it hold up to her big teeth!! I am giving all the family pets bristle bones for Christmas this year! Great price- I stocked up!
Good product although my dog can dismantle
My dog was really interested in this product for a while until she figured out how to dismantle it and get to the chews. See attached picture. I have no idea how she accomplished this because I wasn't watching.
hard plastic ends
Hi, the idea of this product is good although the design of it has failed in the safety department. The bristles combined with a flavor (food) reward is a winning idea, however, the hard plastic ends set the stage for slab fractures of your dog's carnasials. Additionally, the razor sharp edges of the hard plastic ends will no doubt lacerate the gums if your pooch chomps down the wrong way. It would be a much better idea to give an uncooked chicken bone to your dog because a real bone will give whereas, hard plastic will not. When companies make a toy out of hard plastic and then market it as industructable, a red flag should go up since the teeth will be destroyed instead. The four star rating is to help get this published not because I like this product
Great Idea Needs Modified
Bristles entirely TOO HARD for ANYTHING!!! I'd be the first to buy when the manufacturer makes that little modification. As a veterinary technician that knows the importance of dental health, particularly for small breed dogs, I absolutely LOVE the concept behind "Busy Buddy Bristle Bone."
My dogs love these!

Busy buddy bristle bones last a looonnnng time! I only have to re-order when my larger dog doesn't "get it" and eats the bristles. My younger dog loves it and it's a long-lasting treat that keeps her busy as she tries to get at the gnawhide.
A HAPPY DOG
CHARLIE GETS EXCITED WHEN HE SEES ME GET THE BRISTLE BONE OUT TO PUT IN THE REFILLS BECAUSE HE KNOWS HE IS GETTING HIS FAVORITE TREAT. I LIKE THE FACT THAT IT KEEPS HIM BUSY FOR A WHILE AND THAT WORKING TO GET THE TREAT OUT IS NOT ONLY FUN BUT GOOD EXERCISE FOR HIS TEETH AND GUMS. MY ONLY NEGATIVE IS THE PACKAGING--IT TAKES AN AXE TO GET THROUGH THE PACKAGE.

My dogs loved this even when I took the treat out of it. Was afraid of a fight since they loved it so much.
Bristle Bone much more effective than Bouncy Bone
I got this to distract my dog when I needed to do something around the house without her nosing around or as a treat while I'm at work. It's a great way to give her treats although it doesn't last nearly as long as the first couple times I gave it to her. She can get both rings in about 20-30 minutes. Much slower though than the bouncy bone. It takes her less than 5 minutes to eat both rings. I would recommend this bristle bone over the bouncy bone for time reasons alone.
This is a scary toy!
I bought this because my dogs love their funny bones and I thought it would help clean their teeth. My sheltie was able to separate the pieces of this in no time at all. I thought maybe I didnít put it together well and so tried it again and he immediately separated it again. I was scared to death that he was going to choke on one of the pieces and refuse to use this again. We will be sticking with funny bones from now on!
Would not recommend
The brissels came off of the busy buddy bristle bone that I ordered for my dog. Not to happy!
Great product...Great price

Onyx loves his Bristle Bone. When we load it up, he is in his own little world for over an hour as he works to get the rawhide discs from the bone. The Bristle Bone is hard to find in normal pet stores so I was happy to find it on Entirely Pets!! Especially since it is cheaper than anywhere else I've found on the internet!! Onyx thanks you.
