My dog used to love these rings when they were made in the USA. Now he won't even touch these rings made in taiwan. They claim nothing in the ingredients has changed. I trust my dogs judgment!

Please, please get these in the US. Rawhide from China, Korea, Vietnam, etc. is extremely risky. I don't trust the manufacturers to be honest and there is no organization who regulates them. Dogs have been severely harmed and even killed by consuming these types of products made there. From what I understand you used to have these made in the US but you stopped. I love the concept of the toys and would love using them for my two doxies, but I will not risk this because these are made there. The rings that are made with chicken and cornstarch concern me because of the chemicals listed in them and I have not had a chance to discuss them with my vet....but I know that rawhide and jerky made overseas is suspect!

PETSAFE RESPONSE

We appreciate your feedback and understand your concerns. Our rawhide Busy Buddy® treat rings have always been made to our exacting specifications in our facilities located in Taiwan. We maintain the recommended standards for our manufacturers and regularly test our treats to ensure that we are producing safe and tasty products that we feel confident in giving to our own pets and every single ingredient is listed on the packaging as well as the website.

We also have the new treat ring refills that are made in the U.S.A. and feature unique health benefits.

Our Doxie really loves these. She has somehow learned to unscrew them to get the treat. She goes through alot of them especially when she chews the middle piece into. I would love to see you sell parts for these.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We're happy to hear how much your Doxie loves the Busy Buddy® Toy Treat Ring Refills, Sandy! She definitely sounds like she's quite a clever girl. Happily, the treat ring refills work with different types of Busy Buddy toys. If her current toy is looking a little rough, she may enjoy a different type of Busy Buddy toy. If you'd like to give our Customer Care Center a call at 1-866-738-4379, we'll be glad to go over available toy options with you!

I love this bone it is one you she has not destroyed and she loves. But like the other owners as I see that the rawhide is made in China I will not buy anything made there for my pets!!!! I will try the other rings that are made in the USA, but please make the rawhide re in the US. I would pay more for something that is good for my pet, they are family after all and should be treated and cared for as such!!!!

This has always been my dog's absolute favorite treat / toy. It's sad that all the pet shops quit stocking the bone and refills because they're made in China so they can't recommend them anymore. PLEASE MAKE THEM IN THIS COUNTRY so everyone can sell and buy these again, it's a phenomenal concept and I really would love to be able to give them to my dog.

I bought these for my Yorkie for Christmas and I'm just now reading that these discs are made in Taiwan! Highly disappointed and nervous to give them to her! I'm also disappointed that Pet Store that I purchased them from would even carry them! I would pay more just to know they were made here in the USA! So sad because my dog really lives them!

Our three dachshunds love this. They would rather crew on this than anything else they have.Searching online for replacements rings was the first time country of origin ever really crossed my mind. Are the cornstarch, peanut butter and sweet potato flavors also outsourced to China?

My dog has loved these treats for years, but with all the talk about Chinese pet products these days, I can no longer justify the risk. Whether, its jerky, rawhide, pet food, etc. doesn't matter. We don't monitor every ingredient and every minute of manufacturing over there and there's no reason to do it other than cost.

Charge me more and make them in the US.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We appreciate your time and feedback on your experience with the Busy Buddy Rawhide Rings. Please know that we do understand your concern, and we would like you to know that while we are currently dedicated to maintaining high quality ingredients for all of our treats we are working towards making all of our treats in the US. Please check back with us soon for updates regarding our raw hides. In the meantime, our Indigo line, Lickety Stiks, Busy Buddy Oh’s and Berries, and Biscotti are all made in the US.

I've been giving these to my dogs for a few years. They love the toys and when we run out of the rings, we load them with peanut butter. I just recently noticed that the rings are made in China and I saw your response to the other customer who listed her concerns about it. My answer: make them here and CHARGE MORE! Seriously? Keep your costs down? We're pet owners! We would pay more to know that the treat is safe. I've thrown out our rawhide rings and will no longer buy them. Create jobs in the USA, make them here and charge more.

My dog loves this toy, but I read on another website that the rawhide is made in China. I won't be buying any more refills. VERY disappointing.

The only reason that these got a 4 instead of a 5 is because I haven't found them at a local store, and I hate having to ORDER them! That said, I do, because my furbabies love them, even our senior Aussie who will normally touch NOTHING without peanut butter on it! Something like this keeps their teeth beautiful, but the chewy we were using over the last decade (and replaced over and over) costs $28!!! Never again. We will use these.
