More Information

To use, twist off the bottom lid of the Tug-A-Jug. Load with treats or kibble, and then replace the lid. As dogs play with the Tug-A-Jug, treats will randomly come out through the opening at the top of the jug. The rope acts as a barrier to meter the amount of food that is dispensed.

Fantastic for tough chewers!!, 7/3/14
I have a Doxie-poo named Max. He is the most destructive chewer I have ever known. He is a whopping 20 pounds and has torn up every toy I have ever bought him in (at the most) a few hours. It took him 30 minutes to tear up a fire hose toy. He can pop a brand new tennis ball. It's horrible. I buy the toys made for boxers, Pitt bulls and Rottweilers. That being said his favorite toy is the tug-a-jug. Even without the rope he carries it around and looks like the happiest dog on earth. It's lasted more than two years!! He hid it in his "hoard" and when I just recently pulled it out he was so excited!! What a great product for a really tough chewer!

His favorite toy!, 6/13/14
We love toys that make our dog work for a treat. He is food motivated, so he'll work as long as needed to "solve" a puzzle if there is food on the other side. The Busy Buddy toys where we can load treats keep him happy and the "purple bottle" is his favorite. He is seven now and we are on our third. His first had a normal rope and got yucky over time. The second had the rubber rope and the bottom broke when we dropped it a few too many times. Now we are back to one with a normal rope. He doesn't care...he is just happy to see us putting biscuits in it. This is a great toy for a smart dog that likes "time release" toys.

I thought my dog was not smart enough, then I realized......., 12/25/13
My dog's kibble is too large to fit through the opening when the rope is in the bottle. He gave up and I thought he was a simpleton canine, until I tried to get some out. Bummer. I don't want to have to buy special food for this thing. Also, please be careful if your dog tries to chew on the bottle. I work in a vet's office and we repair lots of broken teeth from toys that are too hard.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear that the Busy Buddy® Tug-A-Jug design did not meet your expectations! Please know that this toy does not normally require any sort of specific food for the opening. We often use different size kibble to increase the difficulty to better suit your dog's play or interest. We do offer other toys that may better suit your needs, such as the Busy Buddy Chuckle or Barnacle, especially if you are concerned about your pet chewing. These options can be viewed at the link below.
