The latest additions to PetSafe's Busy Buddy line take inspiration from your favorite foods, including chicken, steak, and corn on the cob. They look like the real things and smell like them too. The Slab O' Sirloin is beef scented, the Cravin' Corncob is butter scented, and no surprise here, the Chompin' Chicken drumstick is chicken scented.
Each toy has designated spaces where you can insert PetSafe's grain-free, natural rawhide treat rings. We found it fairly easy to figure out how to get the treats in, but there are instructions and tips included on the package if you need assistance. Each of the toys comes with four treat rings included, and you can purchase replacements from PetSafe separately.
Additionally, each toy is textured with ridges and grooves where you can smear peanut butter or another soft food of your choice.
Ready for dessert? The Frosty Cone is an ice cream-inspired, BPA-free rubber toy infused with a french vanilla scent. It doesn't come with any treats included. Instead, you can fill the opening with broth, nut butter, wet dog food, or another one of your dog's favorites, then pop it in the freezer to give them a refreshing treat.
These are entertaining boredom busters that keep your dog busy as they work to remove the treats inside. Even after the treats are finished, they offer plenty of chewing fun.
Food-motivated dogs will enjoy these toys. Each of the Busy Buddy toys we tried were medium to large sized for dogs weighing 50 lbs. and over. That said, we found that our smaller dogs could enjoy them just the same. However they do come in smaller sizes for dogs 25 to 50 lbs. if you prefer.
The Frosty Cone is available in a small size for dogs weighing 8 to 30 lbs. and a medium/large size for dogs 30 to 80 lbs.
PetSafe recommends supervising your dog while they play with these and we agree. Although they're made from fairly heavy-duty, BPA-free rubber, more aggressive chewers may be able to leave some marks in the toy and even rip out a few small chunks.
All of these new treat toys from PetSafe are dishwasher safe for easy clean-up.
