PetSafe Busy Buddy Kibble Nibble Feeder Ball is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Concept, just not well executed I received this item for free to test and review with my dogs, the following has been my experience. First issue was that the holes for the food to come out of was too small, so we had to trim away some of the material to allow it to escape. The second and biggest issue is that the egg shape of the toy didn't allow for easy exit of the food when my dogs played with it. They both got discouraged and walked away from the toy. I think if it were round like a ball and had better holes to allow the food to escape more easily then my dogs would've enjoyed this toy a lot more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features! My dog has been playing with this toy for a month and hasn’t gotten bored. I put treats in it because eating too fast is not my dogs problem. She is older and I like that she has to work at getting her reward. Keeps her busy. The only reason I did not give five stars is because the stickers on the product were hard to come off and my dogs hair got stuck a few times. Nothing major, I just had to work harder to get the sticky residue off. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Much Fun! My 3 pups love, love, love this fun interactive toy that releases food/treats... I have a 10 year old German Shepherd, 8 year old Cane Corso and 5 year old Presa Canario...They take turns batting/rolling it around the room even when the treats are gone...Closes securely but care has to be taken so's not to cross thread... The only downside is trying to figure out how much to cut opening for food/ treats to fall out with getting stuck or pouring out too quickly... Great motivation for food motivated less active dogs and dogs that just gobble and eat too fast . [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps my big dog busy during the day! Perfect for the active chewing dog or do that likes a little more excitement at mealtime! This keeps my golden doodle very occupied during the day. Well built construction, looks like it will last forever. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great idea! I was really looking forward to receiving this Busy Buddy Kibble Nibble as a trial product. My dog power chews through rawhides in no time, destroys stuffed toys, and gets bored with fetching after two throws, so I was hoping this would be a great alternative for keeping her busy. She was very interested and followed the toy around when I rolled it (and of course gobbled up the kibbles) but , although she is smart, she doesn't do anything with it on her own other than lick the ends. I think she's a little afraid of it because of it's size and the way it rolls. It might work a little better if it was more round. I'm not giving up on the concept though - I'll probably purchase the small size and see if my dog (she's 28 pounds) likes that. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kibble nibble? My dogs do not move it enough to get treats out. Wonderful idea but doesn't appear to appeal to my dogs. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for larger kibble! Interesting size and shape - my pets are continually intrigued! The only down-side of the product is that my pets are used to very small kibble, and I had to purchase kibble of. A larger size so they wouldn’t fall out of the hole too easily. Hours of enjoyment!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great toy the only problem that I had with this toy is that I put treats that were too large intuitive my dog got frustrated. Once I found the appropriate size treats to put in it, it worked well! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it; my dog is scared of it I absolutely love this product & the fact that you can fit lots of different treats in it. However, my dog was petrified of it!! I think it was the noise of the treats, as the ball rolled around. I even took some of the treats out to show her what was in the ball. I’ve tried giving her the toy numerous times but she will have nothing to do it. I thinks it’s a fantastic product! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Way for them to get Some Exercise Got this for my brother's dogs next door to me. They are beagle/bassets. The younger one (beagle) absolutely loves this and got the hang of it immediately. The older one (basset) never really got the hang of it. He tried to tear it to pieces to get the food out. In all fairness the kibble nibble held up really well. The only thing they are afraid of is if the basset takes it outside and bangs it on the concrete.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A toy that needs work This is a good toy, but it needs improvements. It is very loud as it rolls on the floor. The ends would work better if the openings could be replaced based on the size of the treats. Once you cut the openings that’s it. There are many toys like this on the market that I think are better made. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! If you have a dog that eats their food to fast, then this is perfect. If your working towards using their kibble dog food for treats in training instead of a meal, this is for you. It's very well constructed and durable. "Oban" is hard on his toys and its lasting even with a Border Collie throwing it around. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Challenging the fast eater I have a 50lb puppy who inhaled her food. In testing the product, I found it easy to fill and clean as compared to similar products. My puppy was frustrated at how slow the food is dispensed and has to work very hard to get the food. As it is egg-shaped, it always rolls back to the side. It works better on carpet than on hard surfaces. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puppy loved it! I used the Busy Buddy with my 5 month old puppy. He is extremely active and needs allot of activity. I decided to just use his food to put inside and it worked well. He spent about 45 minutes rolling and pushing it around to get all the treats out. Whenever I need to keep him occupied for awhile I can just give this to him and keep him busy. I also like the fact that you can put a variety of different treats in it. Do make sure to put it up when your dog is done because mine tried to chew it afterwards. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome features! I was looking for something like this as my dog inhales his food. I really thought this would be perfect for him. What I found out was that he had no patience for it. He would nose it around but get frustrated and walk away from it. So although I think it will be perfect for other dogs, not perfect for mine...sorry... [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Neat concept.. This is a great concept for dogs that eat too fast. It does, however, need to come with the bowl for the inside. If you don't have the right size it won't work well. Dogs like to play with it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs would not stop playing with the Busy Buddy I have two dogs and once I filled the Busy Buddy Kibble Nibble with some of their food, it was on! It only took them a few minutes to figure out how it worked. They then played with it for hours. I could see they were really entertained and mentally engaged. I got the M/L size, even though I have small dogs, but it ended up working out. They could paw and push it around, no problem, my one dog even carried it in his mouth into a dog bed. I may have to get a second one! The opening for the food/treats to fall out is flanked by little strips of plastic, which you can cut back if the food is too big for the opening and won’t come out. However, my dogs’ food is dime-sized and the original opening worked perfectly and did not dispense too fast or slow, so I did not cut it. The product is made of VERY sturdy (but light weight) plastic, so I think large dogs would have trouble damaging it, but it is still easy to open and put treats inside. I would recommend the Busy Buddy for all dogs! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Toy! My three German Shepherds love this toy! It took them a few minutes to figure out that the treats actually come out, but once they did, it kept them occupied until it was empty. Very durable under their rough treatment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kibble nibble Got this item to test. Much dog is not treat motivated so was no nterested. All our floops are hardwood or ceramic tile. Hard plasic frightens our Shih Tzu.I . Might have been better if container was soft [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I loved the idea I loved the idea of a treat dispenser rugged enough for my Rottweiler. First off, it says it’s soft rubber coated but it felt hard and was difficult for my dog to get a grip on. It is also noisy when it rolls around on a hard surface. I put small kibble size food in it and it was very difficult for him to get any out. I trimmed the pettles, which was a lot harder than it looked, and it was still hard. I haven’t found the right amount to trim yet. The other negative is, when he was done with it it required a run in the dishwasher, it was a mess! It is sturdy, he was really working hard to get that kibble out and it didn’t break. Sadly I don’t think I can recommend this product, well mayb if you have a Great Dane or Mastiff that can actually get this in their mouth. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kept dog active! Have the Busy Kibble Nibble med/lg size for our mini Australian Shepherd. She really loves it and spends a good deal of time trying to get the food out of the toy. We used normal size dog food in it but ended up having to cut the holes a little larger so the food would come out easier. Our dog loves this toy and won’t stop playing with it til every drop of food is gone. No more bored puppy! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun for them The customization of the holes allows for you to adjust the amount of treats or food to dispense. The dogs don’t love it but the cat does!! And as long as any of them are happy, I’m happy! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Toy lasts if it stays together. I have 3 pits. youngest loved this toy and even hollered at the older one who was trying to chew it. she always thought they were gonna wreck it or do it wrong so she rolled it while they stood back. I just put their food in it. she ate the food in here more than in her bowl. it helps the fast eaters slow down and not get sick. however she rolls it quite aggressively and it popped open one night and the dog #2 chewed the grooves that hold it together. but daddy the machinist fixed it in his shop. YEAH! we have hard time keeping toys. they usually don't last long at all 10 min tops. but this one did last long time. YEAR! the mushroom version of this toy has lasted even longer! its been over a year and it still works great!
