Don't waste your money, 4/11/14
by
I bought the large Bristle Bone, which says it's suitable for German Shepherds. My German Shepherd destroyed it in one day. These might be suitable for smaller dogs, but larger dogs are typically stronger chewers so this toy will not last very long for larger dogs so don't waste your money. Very disappointed.

Westie loves his ., 4/11/14
by
My Westie loves his bristle bone so much that he has destroyed 3 of them. Though the ends are knawed badly but usable, the bristles are totally destroyed. Your company needs to start selling replacement bristles. The rest will eventually need to be replaced, but the bristles just don't last very long. With the bristles in good shape, it is the best toy we have found for keeping his teeth clean. These toys are no found where we live, making replacement bristles even more important to us. We buy the medium size even though your chart shows terriers use the small version. He would destroy the small version even faster.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are happy to hear that your Westie enjoys his Busy Buddy® Bristle Bone®! We are always looking to improve our products, and we appreciate your time and feedback on this toy. Please know that the suggestion to offer bristle replacements has been forwarded on to the appropriate team for review. If you would like to discuss this product with us, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677.

Bristle Bone, 3/30/14
by
My dog loves this, however, she manages to chew up the brush every time, so it doesn't seem safe to me. Why don't you offer replacement parts? Or at least improve the quality of the brush parts. I will not buy again until it is improved.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: Thank you for your time and feedback on the Busy Buddy® Bristle Bone! We are sorry to hear that the design of this toy does not meet your expectations. While we do not have replacements for the bristle, we do offer replacement Cornstarch or Gnawhide rings that you can view using the link below. As pet parents ourselves, we understand your concern about the bristles. If your dog is a strong chewer, there may be other toys better suited for her. If you'd like to discuss your concern, or have any questions, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677.

doesn't last, 1/19/14
by
I was a little set back by the price of the product but purchase for my chewer. The bone lasted almost one month. The bone center spindle snapped in half and the center bristle brush also is split in half.
Not worth money and now sorry I went and purchased 2 more.

Best money ever spent, 1/14/14
by
My Pug and Frenchie LOVE LOVE these bones. I don't even have to put the treat inside. They have completely destroyed two already, chewed the ends off and the rubber rings. They lasted a good 6 months. The Frenchie is teething and she does not let this out of her sight. Wish I had it when the Pug was a pup, would of saves some of my woodwork and shoes !! Fabulous item. Well worth the small price. These are by far their favorite items in their toy box. (and there is plenty in the box to pick from) !

Excellent except......., 12/3/13

I have a lab and a weimerdor and they love this more than me. The only trouble is they chew the bristles off and I can't find replacement bristles so I have to by a who new bone. How about making bristle replacements too?

Big dog loves his chew toy., 9/23/13
by
This is one of my American Bulldogs favorite toys. Favorite because mommy has not thrown it away as a safety hazard. But it will not be much longer. He is chewing the ends fast. But considering he has had this for a few months then it was worth it. Only thing it is hard to find in the store or the food is hard to find. My boy weighs in at 85 lbs. of rugged and lets chew everything up for mommy. Thank you for a really good effort.

Great for hyperactive puppy, 8/13/13
by
Our little 26# mixed breed usually has more energy than I have at bedtime. I toss this into his pen and he aggressively gnaws until he tires and sound sleep is his next act.
