The Buster Food Cube was definitely a great investment. Now when I feed my dog I just get the cube out and use a funnel to put my dog's kibble in it. He loves playing with it and being rewarded by the pieces of food that tumble out a little at a time. He loves his cube so much that he is very protective of it when it has food in it. It's a great way for him to use up some of the energy he has and be fed at the same time. We love it. I would highly recommend this product to others.
My corgi Lyn has been using this ever since our training recommended years two years ago.
This surely keeps the dogs attention and extends mealtime quite a bit. It can get quite noisy as it's a hard plastic. My Dogs love it.
Durable & Fun

Great for shelter dogs and for dogs that are left home for periods of time.
My medium sized dog (55 lb) loves this food cube. It took her a few minutes to get the hang of how it worked, but now it's a breeze for her to roll around. We will often put one of her meals in the cube and let her "work" for it. She enjoys it.
Love This Toy!

The Buster cube is one of the best toys I have ever bought for my dog! Chase, a 1 year old German Shepherd, loves to play with this entertaining food dispenser. He makes my whole family, including my 7 month old son, giggle for hours as he chases the cube around trying to get the food. It's wonderful!
Our Lab loves to get his afternoon meal out of his food cube. Been using the same one for about 9 years. Still works great!

It is our Vizsla's favorite toy. He actually cries for us to fill it, so he can play. He has pushed it all over the house. Sometimes we have trouble finding the toy so we can fill it again--it is definitely our "go to toy" when we have to leave him alone in the house. We have filled it with his kibble and sometimes we add cheerios.

Derby, Chassis and Chilly LOVE their Buster Cubes! I reserve a bit of their kibble from their meals and place it in their cubes and off they go. They nudge and play until their cube is empty.
Excellent results as always
I hadn't bought the 5" Buster cube in a while, and was happy to find it was just as awesome as always. The giftee was a Ridgeback/Pitbull mix, about 90 lbs. Took him about 5 min to learn it. So far he's been unable to destroy it :)
Love the cube!

My dog and my daughter's dog love the Buster Cube. It took both of them a little bit to figure out how to get the food but they had fun doing it. You could almost see the wheels turning!
Really Great Item!

My dog and I love the 5" Buster Food Cube. For my dog, he has a great time knocking the cube around and being rewarded by finding pieces of dry kibble/food coming out of it and gobbling the pieces up. I love it cause he uses up a lot of energy with this activity and I enjoy watching him have fun. Now when it's his meal time he looks forward to getting the food cube to play with. It's great for a dog that requires lots of activity.

great my dog loves it, she doesnt finish her food in two mins gives her something to do! a little noisy but doesnt get stuck under anything so far
The product seems like a great idea, but our dog is terrified of it and won't even go near it. Probably is a good product but I'll never know because my dog won't use it.
SUPER Fun way for dogs to eat slower
This is absolutely wonderful for my 4 month old puppy, Spirit. I put 1 cup of kibble in it, and it takes her about 10 minutes to get it all out. She LOVES this cube. I've already recommended it to a friend, who has also ordered one for her puppy.
nice toy that should survive with a hearty chewer

Really like the Buster Cube. Finally a toy my Weim can not easily destroy. The treat dispenser is an added bonus. Getting the treat access to open and close for refilling requires looking at the notch patterns closely because it will only twist down in one pattern. Not a problem just have to pay attention. Corners are rounded make it difficult for doggie to find a weak spot to damage. Would have preferred the option to pick the color. Received the yellow. Would have liked the red or blue.

I have 2 beagle/Jack Russell dogs who are extremely energetic and who always wolf their food. We've had the cubes for about a month now, and they are wonderful. The dogs have the best time rolling them all over to get their kibbles out. The cubes are a great combination of toy, puzzle, and food bowl. And the best part is that they are indestructible - the very first thing they have not been able to destroy. We are all very happy with the Buster Cubes and highly recommend them.
I have always like the buster cubes to keep my pets busy. I have had many dogs over the years and many at one time that work like a pack.

Had this cube stayed in tact-it would have been a great toy. My pup is very destructive so finding things that hold up to his chewing is a challenge. The cylinder insert that allows you to adjust the level of difficulty was hard to screw in and my pup somehow managed to get it out and chewed it to smithereens so now the toy is in the garbage! Better luck next time I guess!!!
Buster Food Cube Entertains
from Vancouver, Washington01/14/2013
I have used the cube in the past for young Lab pups to entertain and challenge them in the past. I lent my red cube to a friend and then moved and did not get it back. I ordered a new one (blue) and haven't gotten the same good results. I think the red one is more challenging than the blue but I may have a smarter Lab this time around. Overall, it is a way for pups to entertain themselves depending on how smart they are.
This is a fun challenge for my 10 month old weimaraner. She's very toy motivated, and I think enjoys it more for the challenge and less for the treats that come out. In the beginning, I had to watch her closely with it because she tends to scoot it into corners and then gets frustrated that she can't get it away from the wall. Overall, she is definitely enjoying it, and it's a fun game to play. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a new, challenging food toy. Also if your dog isn't very toy motivated, they might not be that interested in the cube.
All kidding aside, i think this is a great toy in theory, except for a few problems:
Okay, I guess.

I was looking for a higher capacity toy for my dog to eat his food from. He loves to eat his food from his KONG, but I am constantly having to refill it. He doesn't seem to be very interested in this one. It won't fit in his mouth, so he can't pick it up and drop it like his KONG. And the square shape makes it hard for him to even knock it around with his paws. It's hard for the food to come out. I'll probably toss this in the trash.
