If Your Dog Likes Water Bottles, Try This Toy Instead!

See the treats, smell the treats, hear the treats – your pet gets all three and, if he's lucky, he'll get to touch and taste them, too! The big Busy Buddy Tug-a-Jug is a bottle – made of bulletproof material! – that features a rubber wrap and rope to help clean teeth . . . and shake those snacks out! Thankfully, the interactive toy also comes in a small size for those lil pups like North and can be filled with your furry friend's favorite yums or dry food for days home alone. Methinks it'd make a great gift for those pups who love water bottles!

Bella has one of these, but I don't think she has yet figured out how to work it, but its quite loud.

I love this for my Stella because other "tough" toys don't last a weekend with her. She's taking a little while to figure out the best way to get treats but I have no doubt she will get it down. And I don't think it's any louder than a bone, her other indestructible/favorite toy.

I wonder if my dog would like something like this. She has a Buster Cube that she absolutely LOVES, but it's almost getting too easy for her despite the fact that I've got it on the most difficult setting. Maybe if I "mixed things up" with a toy like this, she'd like it better.

I agree, this is the best dog toy out there! My pug and lab love it! I use it the same way others said, to feed meals and it helped cure my pug's separation anxiety when I started giving it to her as I was walking out the door. I have capret so it doesn't make too much noise in my house. It has lasted for over a year!!! Size small is good, even for my lab. I got a second one for her and took the rope out and put a small ball in to act as a barrier to the treats instead of the rope. That worked well too. Now they have it in Target so its easier to find. I couldn't find any stores in my area that sold it until now.

I got axle this for christmas (before I adopted Newton). He absolutely loved it, and while we went skiing for the day, I don't think he stopped playing with it. We filled it with Cheerios (one of Axle's favorite treats) and it kept him busy for the longest time. But yes, as many other have said. It can be loud when it's dropped on the floor, and it REALLY hurts when he whips it around. The happy look on his face is worth it though. Newton now plays with it as well, but he can pick it up like Axle can, mostly because it's taller than he is, so it's not as much of a danger (for my legs).

i think i'll get this for ruckus, he loves to rip our plastic bags full of plastic bottles and go to town.

This is SO LOUD when Kasey drops it on the floor to try to get the treats out. And he is a smart dog, but he hasn't seemed to figure this one out yet. But that may be because I hardly ever give it to him because it's LOUD and it HURTS when he drops it on me.

My puppy swallows her food whole if she's fed from a bowl so now I feed her from this and she actually chews. However, Bella eats large breed food and the kibbles are too big to fit through the hole with the rubber rope in so we removed it. I like it better than feeding her meals from the kong because I don't have to keep refilling it so she gets enough.

my parents got this for their dog and she LOVES it! They give it to her when they're leaving and she could care less now. She gets so into it, she pushes it all over the house. LOVES IT

this 'bulletproof' container is also hard as a rock. my aussie likes to take the rope and shake it - watch out for your legs and ankles - it HURTS! not to mention the chances of it breaking your sliding glass door or other windows.

Sadie has several toys she has to roll around to get treats out of (molecuball, orbee, kongs). I thought this would be perfect. She has less than zero interest in it. Mine has the purple plastic "rope" pictured on the left. I thought maybe if I put a real rope in it she would tug...nope. I took out the rope so she could push it around and get the treats out...nope. Not only that but the treats have to be small enough to pass between the rope the the neck of the bottle, too big and they are just stuck in there. Not my best purchase!
