My dog gets pesky and there's nobody else to entertain him. When I went into the local pet store and asked for a busy box for my 100# lab mix, they sold me the Bouncy Bone. It took my dog less than 10 minutes to figure out that he could just grab the ring with his canines, while pinning the ball to the ground with his paws on the nylon bone on either side, and just using brute force to pull the ring until it snaps off. Gone in less than a minute. He's not interested in chewing on the nylon ends, and he could care less about that large heavy ball. Can't say I blame him.

I started cutting thick chews in half and drilling a hole through the center, larger than the core of the toy. Sandwiching the gnawhide ring between the pieces slowed him down considerably, since he had to chew through a substantial amount of rawhide to get to the gnawhide.

My next investment was the Bristle Bone (uses the same rings). If you haven't completed your toy purchase, get this one. It cleans their teeth, massages their gums, and conceals everything but the edge of the ring. Within 5 minutes he had cracked the middle piece that houses the bristles with his powerful jaws. The toy is still usable, although it does lose bristles. However, it only slowed him down by a few minutes.

Now I cut 3/8" off the outside of the rings, and cut that into smaller pieces to hide between the bristles on the other side, and use as special mini-treats. (I'm too cheap to use more than one ring at a time.) By doing this I am assured of at least 30 minutes to two hours. He's also pretty worn out from all the licking and biting.

China recently refused to let the FDA inspect pet treat manufacturing facilities. [...]

There is no inspection, legal system, or quality control to make sure you do not give your pet toxic rawhide if the rawhide is made in China. There are other treats on Amazon that are American or European made--buy those.

I threw out the rawhide rounds and cut pieces of US-made, no toxic chemicals rawhide into rounds to slide on this. I put edible toothpaste (liver flavor--yum! yum!)on the bristles. It is keeping my dogs' teeth much, much cleaner. Great product, but dangerous to give your dog rawhide from China. Over 6000 pets have died just from jerky treats alone.

I like the concept of this toy w/these rawhide strips but they are very expensive and after much wear on the toy the rings do not stay on well so they do not last very long. Yes, my dogs are big agressive chewers but I was thinking the toy would last a little longer. The strips are kind of thin so they are finished with it in about 10 minutes.

We got our little Abby a month ago, she is a Jack Russell. We went crazy buying toys and such. I saw this toy on Amazon and got one for her, not thinking much about it, but it is her very favorite toy! We got two more for our other dogs, but they really don't get to play with them, Abby swoops in and takes them before they hit the ground. I just ordered 5 more refills so I could get one free. You really can't go wrong with this toy.

Amazon had an older picture of this product online. There were more in each package that was pictured and different types. What I ordered and what I got were different. What I got was overpriced for what it was.

I have been having good luck with these with my two lab mutts. I load a couple into a Busy Buddy for each of them and they love them. I think it helps to keep them busy and out of trouble while I'm away.

My only gripe is that they're made in China, and I really have a hard time feeding my dogs something made in China (remember the pet food recall, lead paint in toys, milk debacle, etc..). Hopefully I can figure out a recipe to copy these things because they do work well.

I have two Chi's and they LOVE the rough rawhide ones but they ignore the smooth ones.

I bought the two of the toys that these rings go with and they could care less about those. I just give them the ring and they toss it, chase it and chew it. I only wish they sold a pack of only the rough rawhide.

My puppy loves these. Too bad she devours them so fast but she enjoys doing it. Wish the holes were standardized. Some don't fit the toy.

My dog loses her little mind whenever I mention this special treat. I bring them maybe once a week when I having a particularly long day. It occupies her while also stimulating her mentally - so important for dogs to have that mental stimulation. Great product!

My dog loves to chew on these, but dang, they give her the worst gas I've ever smelled in my life, and it goes on for hours. They probably don't cause the same reaction in all dogs, but I won't buy them anymore.
