Keeps my pup busy and entertained
This toy is great for dogs who are motivated by food and highly energetic. My pup is both and she loves this toy. Its so fun to watch her get creative with new ways to get the treats out. We like to put dog food in hers as a way to make her eat part of her meal more slowly as well.

Educational and fun prompting toy
My dog did not naturally take to Tug-aJug. I sat on the floor, instigated the play until he got it, couple play times, not all at once cause it was new to him.. Purchased in Dec, now Feb, he plays with it on his own. Treats falling out prompt the play. He can't get his jaws around the tough, durable plastic, and he isn't trying to chew thru the rope. He has learned how to push, pull, swat at it with his paws, and carry by the rope. His nature is not a ball chasing, rope tugging, or barking dog...he's a pound puppy, mix of terrier & some sort of spaniel I guess, a wonderful mix of whatever. I support adopting from animal shelters. In my family adopting is a life time commitment, they are members of our family, our fur babies!Save a pup or older dog from death row, adopt from the animal shelter and enjoy all the unconditional love.

Good toy to occupy a dog's mind and time
The dogs like the toy and want to spend time getting the food out, so they are occupied for long periods of time.

A little loud
My dog doesn't like loud noises, so she wouldn't play with this. It is loud when the treats shake around and loud when it hits the tile or wood floor. It is a great idea for a dog that is not sound sensative.

Dog Loves It!
My boy is a chewer/destructor, but (with supervised play) he loves this toy. We are on number two, because he can still crack the plastic. If your dog doesn't play with it or goes for the wrong end work with them to teach them how to use it. I use a small bites dog food in it most of the time and occasionally a larger sized food for extra challenge. My dog would rather just crush the back to get to the food, but after showing him how to use it, it keeps him busy as he tugs and turns it over to get to the food. Great toy.

Great Tug a Jug
I bought this for my Siberian Husky when she was a puppy. It took her almost 2 yrs to figure it out, but now she just steps on the tug and picks it up by the bottom to get the treats to come out. It probably doesn't take more than 15 Min. to empty it, but it keeps her out of trouble while she eats her food.Love It.

Brittle Lid
My dogs were just starting to enjoy their new toy when the lid cracked all the way around. I contacted Premier and they said that there had been some issues with the lid. They're sending me a new lid, hopefully this lid is more sturdy, otherwise I'm sure they'll send me another when they've fixed the problem. Premier has always stood behind their products, thank you!

Disappointed
My dogs were given the tug-a-jugs only once in awhile. The threading at the base of the jug cracked on two out of three. They were then unusable. I contacted the manufacturer, but they did not respond. So a lot of money spent on defective merchandise, manufacturer didn't respond, left with unusable toys...guess they will go in the garbage. Will not buy Busy Buddy toys again.

they changed the rope!
My dogs LOVE this toy so much that I bought them a new one (they finally chewed the rubber ball off the end of the rubber rope in the jar). The problem is they replaced the thick rubber rope with an actual piece of rope-it lasted about an hour! Now the treats can't fall out!!! I need one with the rubber rope! Sincerely, sad pups in Pennsylvania.

Great Entertainment
My German Shepherd Puppy chews up lots of things, but she has only managed to untie the rope lead on this one. After 6 months it still works and she gets great pleasure from slinging the thing around the room. Watch out for your knees, it packs a whollop! She rarely gets her small treats to come out because of the rope, but tries anyway. I am ordering her and her friend a new one for Christmas!

I don't see this one lasting long, but I've wanted to buy it and find out for awhile now, so I am taking the plunge. Will update after my pack of three bully breed/pit-type mixes "play" with it... (will not leave out, this will be supervised play if it stands any chance at all.)

Our lab loves this toy. Wore out the first one and is now working on her second. She plays with this daily. Worth even penny.

Two family members are first time owners of energetic puppies; thought they would appreciate a toy that would keep their puppies occupied.

i used a plastic water jug and put dry food bits into it, he loved it, played a long time. This will be so much better! He really likes it.

Looks like a great toy that will stimulate a dogs abilities.
Joyce O on Nov 4, 2014
We should be feeding dogs with interactive toys to cut down on boredom and bloat. I'm currently using another toy by pet safe, but I have to refill it three times to get my pup his full meal. This toy will be an increased challenge for him and a decrease in work for me: perfect combo!
