The Busy Buddy Tug-A-Jug dog toy was designed for long-lasting, interactive playtime.

It has a multi-sensory appeal (rope toy + hard plastic container filled with dog treats + textured rubber neck) to keep your dog interested and playing longer — stimulating your dog’s sight, smell, hearing, touch and taste.

Dogs can see and smell the treats, while hearing them rattle inside the jug.

Your dog gets an immediate reward when the treats or (or dog kibble) randomly fall out of the jug’s narrow-neck opening as your dog pushes the toy around on the ground, chews on the toy’s built-in rope, or teeths on the nubby rubber neck.

This built-in gratification system keeps your dog actively engaged, challenged, and motivated.

The Tug-A-Jug interactive dog toy is perfect for a game of tug, hide & seek, and fetch.

It can also be used as a training tool for commands such as “Bring it,” “Leave it” and “Fetch.”

Dishwasher safe – top rack.


5 Tug A Jug Dog Toy Tips

TIP #1: You might think the treats need to be crammed into the narrow neck of the bottle. Nope. The wide round bottom “unscrews” for easy filling of dog treats!

TIP #2: Use dense, hard-to-break treats so your dog has to work harder to get them out of the toy. At first, use smaller treats so they come out faster and immediately reward your dog as he plays with his new toy. Once your dog becomes more experienced with the Tug-A-Jug, begin using larger dog treats. They will come out more slowly, making the Tug-A-Jug more challenging for him.

TIP #3: Buddy-Ohs and Buddy Berries were designed specifically for the Tug-A-Jug dog toy, but you can use any similarly-sized dog treats or kibble.

TIP #4: If your dog eats regular dog food too quickly, the Tug-A-Jug can be used to feed your dog his entire meal! Simply fill the Tug-A-Jug with your dog’s own kibble, and make dinner time fun!

TIP #5: Even if your dog happens to eventually chew through the rope, the Tug-A-Jug dog toy is still usable! Simply place golf balls or Wiffle balls inside the jug — along with dog treats or kibble. As the balls roll back & 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.
