The PetSafe Busy Buddy Twist 'n Treat is a highly adjustable treat-dispensing rubber dog toy. Twist the two pieces farther apart for easy access to treats, or twist closer together for more of a challenge. Works with a wide variety of food options, including smearable treats such as peanut butter. Not recommended for strong chewers. Dishwasher safe, top rack only.
The Twist ‘n Treat is the first and only 2-piece adjustable rubber treat dispensing toy. The rate of treat dispersal can be adjusted to suit the interest and ability of the dog.
How it Works
- 1) When first introducing the toy to your dog, we suggest leaving enough space in the opening to allow treats to fall our regularly, so your dog can "win the game."
- 2) Once your dog plays successfully with the Twist 'n Treat, you can screw the opening tighter to extend the length of play.
- 3) The adjustable opening allows the Twist 'n Treat to be filled with a variety of hard, soft, and smear-able treats.
- NOT recommended for strong chewers
- Available in 4 sizes (see sizing chart above)
- First 2-piece adjustable rubber toy that dispenses treats
- Made of natural rubber
- Ideal for dogs under 20 pounds
- Adjust the rate of treat dispersal to suit your pet
- Treats sold separately

Good thing about this is, you can make it so they have to work fairly hard (a small dog at least) to get treats out, or you can set it so the treats will loosely fall out. Either way my dog loves the reward.
I also bought the Buddies Berries that were recommended for this toy, and I was kind of hesitant not knowing if she would like the treats, she is used to bigger "meatier" treats, but she loves them!
If she knows that there are treats/food in there, she's all about this little toy. She's very single-minded, and quite a chewer, so at the right difficulty, this can keep her occupied for at least 30 minutes. I usually put in a few different sizes and shapes of kibble and treats in there to keep it going for that long, and I'll adjust the difficulty if she starts getting discouraged.
This thing also stands up to chewing really, really well. She chews/destroys most of her toys, but this one has held up for weeks now.
I've started using this to get her to pace herself when eating, too. I put about half in her bowl in the morning, and half in the toy for her to work on afterward. She's always more excited about it being in there. Will definitely buy again if this ever gets destroyed.
Our dogs picked up the dispensing method immediately because they're used to working for their dinners. I give it to them on the hardest setting--screwed totally tight so the arches on each side don't meet up, but are slightly past one another. This creates two half-circle holes on each side of the toy, rather than one larger round hole.
We got the large size because I wanted to be able to feed them their entire dinner from the toy. We feed them each dog 1 cup of kibble from these toys. You can fill them about 1/2 way while they're unscrewed and opened, but then you have to screw the pieces together, hold one end (to prevent the food from falling out the opposite end) and pour kibble into the hole. It's kind of a pain to fill them. Fortunately I only do this once a day, so it's not a deal-breaker for me.
I'm excited to try these with peanut butter or pumpkin. I think I'll try mixing the pups' dinner with a spoonful of pumpkin and throwing these boys in the freezer. That should definitely take some time and brain power!
My dog also is not mentally gifted. In fact, he's kind of dumb. He's totally loveable, but he's just not so smart. And while he is food motivated, if he can't figure something out relatively easily, he'll give up, despite me trying to help him. I can't get really tricky puzzles, he'll just give up. What I like about this is that I could start it really easy, with the two halves fairly far apart so that each move produced a lot of kibble and he got rewarded quickly. Over time I closed the gap so that now I can screw it all the way shut leaving only two holes where the kibble can get out. He still loves it even though it takes him much longer than when we first started using this toy.
He now has a very positive association with this toy and is always excited in the morning when I pull it out to use for breakfast. He's a power chewer so I don't leave it with him after breakfast (just in case) and so far it's holding up really well. I just wash by hand and dry in a dish rack each morning after breakfast. I don't have a dishwasher anyway, so no idea if it's dishwasher safe.
