When I saw this toy I thought it would be perfect for my dog. She's a 40 pounds dalmatian mix. After no more than 5 minutes she had the toy in pieces! I freaked out because she was chewing on the individual plastic pieces (very dangerous if swallowed). I was impressed she got it apart and wanted to see if maybe I didn't tighten it enough. I replaced the disc and made sure it was tightened to the fullest. Sure enough, she took it apart again! I paid $15 for the toy and $5 for the refill discs from Bass Pro. This was a waste and unsafe!

I bought a new Busy Buddy Bristle Bone for my Australian Shepherd on 5/21 to take on a family vacation to keep the dog happy while traveling and within 10 minutes the bristle portion split in half. This was a replacement as the previous one broke in half as well. Very disappointed in this product and would not recommend. Save your money. We've purchased a different brand previously at a local pet store and had no issues with the their busy bones and will purchase from there in the future.

The Busy Buddy keeps my dogs busy but unfortunately the bristles do not last long if a strong chewer. Please offer replacement parts.

This is my dogs favorite toy but I do wish I could get replacement bristles for it because my dog tends to chew the bristles up rather quickly. Other than the bristles the rest of the toy last and my dog loves it!

I have 4 dogs. Two large and two small and they all just love, love these. They will chew on them for the longest time and I have had them for a long time. Only one precaution is to make sure that you twist the ends on tightly when you add the rawhide discs, because they have gotten the ends off and buried them and then I am out searching for them in the yard. I threw one out only to find the end a few days later. They are certainly worth the money and keep their teeth much cleaner with the bristles then the ones I have purchased without the bristles.

Our 7 year old english springer spaniel is a VERY aggressive chewer and loves this toy. It is one of the few toys that he cannot destroy in a few minutes. The only problem is he has figured out how to unscrew the toy no matter how hard I tighten it. If we aren't watching our dog and he gets the toy unscrewed, he will chew on the end so we can't screw it back together and then the toy is useless so we have to go out and purchase a new one. This is great for the company but expensive for us! : ) I wish I could order parts instead of having to buy a whole new toy. I have a bag of the nub rings and no use for them. I think the bristle rings have been redesigned and hold up much better than the earlier ones.

My dog loves this toy. He is not normally into toys but he will chew this bone for hours. The only issue we have had is the bristles fall out and we can't replacement bristle disks.

Our 9 month old yellow lab, Shelby was starting to get a plaque build up on her teeth. Our vet recommended the Busy Buddy Bristle Bone and in just one week the tarter and yellowing is nearly gone! I try to brush her teeth but that is nearly impossible so I add a little canine toothpaste on to the bristles of her busy bone and she loves it!!!!!
