Premier Busy Buddy Tug-a-Jug
The Busy Buddy line of dog toys and treats is designed for longer lasting playtime. Busy Buddy treat holding or treat dispensing toys encourage dogs to interact with the toys longer. This built-in gratification system keeps them actively engaged and can be used as a part of your dogs’ treat routine, instead of giving them high calorie treats that they consume all too quickly.
The Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug provides a multi-sensory appeal to keep dogs interested and motivated to play. It stimulates your dog’s sight, smell, hearing, touch and taste, making the Tug-A-Jug the ultimate solution for interactive play. He can see and smell the treats and hear them rattle. Dogs are positively rewarded when treats or kibble dispense from the jug’s opening.
The Tug-A-Jug is perfect for a game of tug, hide and seek, and fetch. It can also be used as a training tool for commands such as “Bring it,” “Leave it” and “Fetch.”
Treat dispensing toy:
Reward your dogs’ playtime and make it more fun. The Busy Buddy Tug-a-Jug dispenses treats or kibble for your dog to enjoy while he plays.
Longer lasting playtime:
The Tug-A-Jug is made from an incredibly durable, non-toxic plastic. However, the Tug-A-Jug is NOT a chew toy. Supervise your dog during play and remove the toy if damaged.
Top rack only.
We recommend using dense, hard-to-break treats so your dog has to work harder to get them out of the toy. You may find that you need to use smaller treats at first, so they come out faster, rewarding your dog as he plays. Once your dog becomes more experienced with the Tug-A-Jug, you can begin using larger treats. They will come out more slowly and make the Tug-A-Jug more of a challenge for him. Remember to stock up on Buddy-Ohs! treats for longer lasting playtime.
Use as a Feeder
The Tug-A-Jug can be used to feed your dog his entire meal. This is especially helpful for dogs that “inhale” their meals, and immediately start asking for more. Fill the Tug-A-Jug with your dog’s kibble, and make him work for his dinner!
Getting the Right Size
Remember to consider your dog’s size and breed when choosing the right size Tug-A-Jug. If you aren’t sure which size toy is correct for your dog, go up a size. This is a good rule of thumb for choosing the right size toy. The Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug will challenge your dog to work for his meals and encourage longer lasting playtime.
PLEASE NOTE: Some dogs may chew through the rope during play. However, this doesn’t mean that the toy is unusable. You and your dog can continue to enjoy the Tug-A-Jug by placing various sized balls inside the jug with kibble or treats. As the balls roll back and forth, they interfere with the dispensing of kibble. By changing the size of the balls or the treats, the level of difficulty can be adjusted to suit your dog’s level of play and interest. We recommend using a couple of golf balls or a Wiffle ball to begin with to build your dog’s confidence as he plays. Once he understands the new rules of the game, you can increase the number and/or diameter of the balls.
As always, we encourage you to observe your dog as he plays and to take the toy away as necessary.
