An Ingenious Product for Dogs with High Intellect and Energy

We recently evaluated dozens of pet products and want to give you some of our favorites. Our 2008 winner included this product called Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug. To read more of our 2008 product reviews – go to Top Pet Products of 2008 Reviewed – See the Top 5 Products!

Do you have a dog that becomes bored easily? Or, enjoys problem solving? Or, has a lot of energy? Well, I've found a product that will keep them busy for a long time! It's called The Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug. The long name is very indicative of the great length of time your dog will stay busy enjoy using this toy.

The Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug is a hard plastic see-through jug that can hold anything your dog loves – treats, food, and even balls. The bottom of the jug unscrews so that you can insert something. The top of the jug has a smaller opening where the contents can fall out; but, at a very slow rate. The Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug also comes with a rubber rope tug that fits in the hole at the top of the jug making it even more complicated for your pet to retrieve the contents inside. They will really have to work at getting what they want!

The Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug has tiny holes in the bottom that heighten your dog's senses by helping them smell the treats or food even more! They can see it! They can smell it! They just have to get it out! One of the interesting benefits to this product, is that your dog can actually work for his meal. Basically, insert their entire kibble meal into The Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug and watch how cunning they become! They will shake it, roll it, chew at it, paw it and receive immense pleasure in the rewards that come out! While describing this, it sounds much like what your dog would do with his food in the wild. This method of feeding is also beneficial as it allows for better digestion as he will not be able to wolf down his food as quickly.

Speaking of chewing, I almost forgot to mention that The Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug has a rubber ball with spikes around the rim at the top to brush and floss their teeth! Made by Premier, this is just another of their extremely clever and useful products.

If you only use this product for fun and games, it would be great for tug of war. However, this is not a toy to be left unsupervised as he might be able to remove the plastic rope and choke.

PROS for Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug

The Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug is non-toxic and can handle strong chewers. It is great for dental and digestive health. It also appeals to all of your dog's bodily and animalistic senses – tasting, touching, seeing, smelling, hearing, hunting, and thinking.

CONS for Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug

While playing or working with The Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug, your dog could hurl it across a room and break a household object. So, we recommend that this product is used outdoors or in a room without breakables, including television screens.

FINAL THOUGHTS on Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug

The Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug only costs $11 - $16 and comes in large and small sizes. That is more affordable than most dog toys and honors the intelligence of your pet. I wouldn't think twice about buying The Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug. For more information, go to Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug.
