Premier Busy Buddy Tug-a-Jug
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.”
Product FeaturesTreat 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.
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.
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.

At first you should fill the bottle so that it is over half full. This way food can come out more easily when it is on its side. This will encourage the dog to play with it. Once the food level goes down food will only come out as they toss and pull the bottle. It took my dog a few days to get to this, but now she seems to have mastered it. She stands the bottle up and knocks it over, putting food into the neck, then she works the rope a bit and manages to get a piece of kibble out. When I first got the toy I thought she would never be able to figure it out, but she has. Even so, it takes a fair amount of work to get out just a few pieces of food, so it can keep them occupied all day.
To fill with treats, just twist off the bottom; couldn't be easier. It's a lot of fun watching our dog figure out how to get at the goodies inside.
I honestly don't think the rope pull is going to last very long; especially if you are buying this for an aggressive chewer. However, don't let that stop you from buying the tug-a-jug. Even without the rope, it's still a great and challenging toy.
The threading on one of ours broke after about a month due to my dog's persistent, not to mention a rough, methods. We have since purchased a new one and have been using it nightly. We've tried crumpled paper and putting a tennis ball in each jug to slow our dogs down, but they both appear to have it down. It takes them about 15 minutes to finish them now. I miss the week where it took them 30 minutes, but oh well. It turns a 15-second meal into a 15-minute meal. That's something, right?
