Way too large for a small dog by Linfork from New Jersey07/09/2013
Although this is supposed to be for a small dog, it is way too large for him to get his mouth around. We had to give it away to larger dogs.
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.
Not Busy enough by millie from Tampa, FL08/14/2012
This didn't last very long. I believe within a few hours he tore apart.
twist and no treat by critterkeeper08/14/2012
When the two halves of this toy are fully screwed into place there is such a tiny dispensing area that I have never seen a treat, nor kibble, that could fit through the opening. If the halves are left loosened, they're too loose and the kibble dumps out entirely at once. There doesn't seem to be a happy medium here.
I spread peanut butter on this. My dog loves it, and my neighbors dog is obsessed with it.
Keeps them busy by Pup-mom from El Paso, Tx07/23/2012
I would recommend this toy/ aid to help puppies busy safety. Our new addition, is a new 3 mo old puppy and we had to re-learn puppyhood all over again. I most use this toy when crate training or when I need to to be busy so I can jump in the shower. It's multi functional, I've used goat cheese, peanut butter and kibble in it, works good and it's fairly easy to get clean.
by Malt mom from Los Angeles03/06/2013
This is one of the best interactive toys I've ever used. It comes small enough for tiny dogs too. I put my Maltese puppy's kibble in it and put it on the floor on the kitchen. She loves rolling it and watching the kibble come out, eating each one along the way. A very fun way to feed your dog.
nice idea but material is too easily chewed by olive from Upstate NY12/29/2012
We have an aggressive puppy (8 month old English setter). This toy was more interesting to chew on than get the treats out. We have other toys like this made of hard plastic that she plays with to get the treats out.
Worked well but better for smaller breeds by Sandi from Stuttggart Germany12/28/2010
I bought the Lrg one for my doberman and it worked well but he was still able to chew it up within about 4-5 months also it is pretty easy to get the treats out. But I could see this toy being great for a smaller dog .
Love it by dogloverC from Clifton, NJ05/31/2012
My dog is very active, it took her a long time to figure it out how to get the treats. After she was done, she was exhausted...nap time!
Excellent product by terrier woman from Harrisonburg, VA07/10/2012
Not only have I used the Twist N Treat for core muscle development, I have two dogs who "gulp" their food. Breakfast and dinner is served in their T/T's and that way I know they have actually chewed their food!
I only bought one in case they wouldn't play with it,but now they fight over it. The rawhides go fast but they still chew on the bone and ball part. I replace with more rawhides and they're back to fighting over it again. Now I gotta buy a second one for the other dog.

My little Australian Shepard loves these! She's a "chewer" so they provide the resistance she loves as well as the challenge of unscrewing them.

Fun toy by Mel04/13/2012
Our Gordon Setter has high energy especially when she can't go hunting. We hide the Buddy Bouncy Bone somewhere in the house and she has fun tracking it down. The toy is durable and she loves the gnawhide rings!
Love at first Bite by Jnng from Long Island, NY08/04/2010
My dog loves this bone and the rawhides that come with it. She is so addicted to this bone that she brings it to me every night to refill it with the rawhides. This bone has become her dessert. She even enjoys the bone without the rawhide treat. Even more than any other nylon bone. I highly recommend this product
I LOVE this toy. It is a great way for them to occupy their mouths.
Favorite toy by mel from Wisconsin10/08/2013
Absolutely our dogs favorite toy! We place rings on the toys, hide them and both dogs go on the search for the toy. They are hunting dogs so this also helps to keep them interested and inquisitive.
Great fun for all!
Fun toy! by Rebeccajp from Ohio01/05/2013
A happy little Shih Tzu at Christmas when she got this toy! Obviously loves the taste of the disks!
Busy Buddy Bouncy Bone (medium) by vvickib5409/22/2013
This is Tucker's second Busy Bone - he is two years old. I buy him the rawhide rings that slide onto it-the rings last him about two days. He seems to enjoy chewing on the end of the Busy Bone also-that's why he now on his second bone.
I like this product because it lasts a long time and he enjoys it so much.
Our dog does not use this toy very much. He has other treat delivering toys that he likes much better. It may work better for other dogs.
Great Toy Very Durable ! by Sandi from Oceanside CA12/28/2010
I have a 98 lb doberman and a 55 lb husky and this toy has lasted over a year with little to no damage to toy. They love to chew and play even without the rawhide rings I would recommend this to anyone with a Large breed dog who loves to chew !
Great busy toy for big dogs by Desertdeb from Colorado12/02/2012
My dogs love this toy and the rawhide chews. The design of the toy doesn't allow big dogs to quickly empty it rather, they can work on it and it keeps them busy when I need them to be.
Happy camper by Rebeccapark from Ohio01/05/2013
My dog can't wait to be offered this toy! The disks get him really interested and then he is ready to enjoy the bone!
Broke within two minutes by Milo's Mom10/26/2012
Broke within two minutes. Made me sad, as I was so excited about it.
Dogs love these by Brenda01/15/2013
My dogs love these bones and ask for them every night!
great by cc02/19/2009
This has been a great find for my lab mix, she has a lot of energy and it keeps he well occupied.
Dogs love this but I prefer the toys I can refill with peanut butter as it can get expensive to purchase the edible rings.
