We recieved a Busy Buddy Waggle awhile ago through [a retailer]. Sadly our Great Dane puppy for whom it was intended passed before He got to play with it. S0, fast forward to happier present, my new chewer has gone through everything of the heavy chewing toy variety I have in the house; And some not allowed, like my pillow! Sorry sidebar, anyway He LOVES this! and it keeps him entertained for hours. Thank you, I am looking forward to trying out our new purchases!

My retriever x is one of those puppies that can dismantle most toys within a few hours (and often minutes) - even toys specifically for "power chewers". But so far, the Waggle is still in one piece, with only a few tiny marks on it from her very sharp teeth.

I purchased a medium/large for her (she is just over 60lbs) and it seems to be the right size for her. I did clip down some of the prongs inside, since the hole that the food comes out of is a bit small, and the prongs are close together.

My dog tends to approach most treat dispensing toys with the "smash and grab" approach (throws the toy down over and over to get the reward out), so depending on how your dog handles obtaining their treats, you may or may not have to make adjustments.

Out of all our PetSafe toys, I'd say this one keeps her busy the longest!

In a household of six large breeds with tennis ball-popping powerful jaws and ranging from one 10 months old to two 2 years old to three into their teens, the Waggle has proved to playfully occupy the time of each one for amazingly long periods of play. This is the first toy/treat toy that has been the fun focus for each pup. Our Waggle has held up to extreme abuse as it has been tag-teamed between dogs.

Importantly to us is that the (very durable) material holds up to the razor-sharp puppy teeth and is soft enough for the seniors to have enjoyable play. The Waggle tops [other brand] for occupying the dogs for extended play and is far easier, in our experience, on gums and teeth than [other brand] products.

Like Gerald, I purchased this to use with berry treats. Also, much like Gerald's dog, my 10 month old yorkie found this way too simple. I think the berry treats fall out too easily, and because of how quickly they fall out, the toy only keeps her busy for a few minutes before the treats are gone. I gave it 3 stars because my puppy has a lot of fun playing with it for the few minutes the treats last. Since she has so much fun with the busy buddy toy, and she likes the berry treats, I'm on the site at the moment searching for a more challenging busy buddy toy.

The Waggle is the ONLY toy ever to survive my dog's ability to destroy a toy (Kongs included) within 10 minutes of getting it. I am not exaggerating how quickly my dog has torn apart toys, but not the Waggle...he loves it and can spend 30 min working on it. After years it's still useable. Incredible!

I bought it with the buddy-berries treats for my puppy and as soon as you put the treat in, it fall right out. No challenge for my puppy. Plays with it for only 2 mins Its a good idea with a weak design. I gave it 2 star because i use it with bigger treats from other brands.

I bought this several years ago for my older dogs, they weren't terribly impressed, but I didn't trim the prongs and didn't try very hard to find a good treat to go in it. Last fall we got a new puppy, so out came all the toys to try and keep her busy. This one has been great, we use cut up, cooked pieces of chicken liver and freeze them and pop them into the toy. She'll work for an hour or more to get everything out. I like that she is staying out of trouble, addressing her chewing needs constructively and using problem solving to get out every last bit. I am buying a new one because ours is several years old and has seen a ton of use, including those razor sharp puppy teeth and is showing some wear. Absolutely a great value that has stood up to a full year of almost daily use.
