Keep Your Dog “BUSY”

We have 2 Busy Buddy Bones because Kobe (3 years old) and Izzy (10 weeks old) both go nuts over it!

The Busy Buddy Dog Bone is a real “LIKE” by many of the Drs. Foster & Smith employee-owned dogs! It’s a treat holding nylon bone toy that is a real dog boredom-buster and it helps promote dental health. The bristle style bone features soft rubber nub rings, Gnawhide treats, plus stiff, tooth-cleaning nylon bristles to enhance the dental benefits of chewing.

The replaceable Gnawhide treat discs are apparently very tasty because they drive my dogs nuts. The discs last longer than most chew treats because they’re placed between a bristle layer and a knobby rubber layer. Little do the dogs know they’re brushing their own teeth while they’re madly working at getting that treat disc!

My dogs are at-attention as I unscrew the ends of the bones to put the treat discs in. When the bones go down, the dogs are fired-up and ready to do what they need to do to get that delicious reward! They much prefer to chew the toy with a treat disc in it, but occasionally they’ll pick up a treat less Busy Buddy Bone and chew on the hard nylon ends.

The Busy Buddy Bone is INCREDIBLY helpful with my new puppy. We got her at age 6-weeks so we’ve witnessed her crazy chewing needs. When she starts chewing something inappropriate, we distract her and redirect her attention to a chew toy, often the Busy Buddy Bone.

Features of the Busy Buddy Bone:

  • Conquer boredom and support pet dental health with these innovative dog toys
  • Bone-hard nylon ends, combined with multiple-texture add-ons, give dogs chewing variety
  • Replaceable treats reward dogs for their hard work
  • Available in various sizes to accommodate all size dogs

A fellow Drs. Foster & Smith colleague also tried the Busy Buddy Bristle Bone with her dogs. Here’s her review of the toy:

My dogs love the Busy Buddy Bone! My dogs have always loved the Nylabones, but always chewed them to destruction in a matter of just a few days. The replaceable rawhide rings give my dogs something else to chew on, so the nylabone portion lasts longer. The dogs love this toy so much, we have designated it a special occasion toy (which means it is not in their toy bin with all the other toys). It stays in the cupboard until the evening and they get to enjoy it after their supper. Otherwise, they would chew on it for hours and hours!
