Premier Pet Busy Buddy Bouncy Bone Dog Toy
(4 out of 5)
Rawhide chews make the Buddy Bouncy Bone irresistible.
July 19, 2010 7:22 pm | By Zootoo Editor Mary T.
Bouncy Bone, by Busy Buddy, is a refillable nylon bone with a rubber ball at its center. The toy is an ingenious combination of two products that dogs love – toys that bounce, and delicious bones. And as if this powerful combination wasn’t enough to keep any Fido transfixed, a third component exists that will simply knock your pooch’s socks off.
What is this magic secret? Rawhide chews that fit around the inside of the bone next to the ball. In other words, this is a toy that looks like a bone, bounces like a ball and tastes like rawhide. ‘Nuff said.
I gave the Busy Buddy Bouncy Bone to my dog with high expectations. Of the three components that make up the Bouncy Bone winning trifecta, the one that interested my dog the most was the rawhide. He didn’t seem to want to chase the bone when I bounced it for him. What's more, he didn’t find the nylon bone satisfying to chew. However, he loved chewing on the rawhide, stripping it off the bone and eating it.
Maintenance is relatively simple: the product comes with two different types of rawhide chews. When the chew on the bone is worn out, or your dog eats it, simply unscrew one side of the bone and slide on the new chew, then screw the bone back together and hand it to your dog.
The one downside to the toy is its combination of two kinds of materials (rubber and Nylon) that can be broken into smaller, too-easy-to-swallow pieces and cause blockage in a dog’s digestive tract. To prevent this, simply supervise your dog closely while he’s chewing it.
Pros: Combines a toy, a bone, and rawhide into one appealing product.
Cons: Make sure that your dog doesn't break small pieces from the nylon and rubber materials.

Keeps dogs busy
posted 5 years ago
These toys seem to keep the dogs interested as long as the "gnawhide" treats are not completely eaten. Although it is easier at first to get the gnawhide, it gets progressively harder as the dog gets closer to where it is attached.
Cons: not as interesting without the gnawhide
