Absolutely TERRIBLE product!! I feel so bad for giving these horrible treats to my baby boy. I gave him one to keep him busy, and it worked like a charm. He was chewing away for at least an hour (my baby is a Husky). About two to three hours later he was having HORRIBLE diaharia. So bad that he couldn't even hold it while I was in the restroom, and he hasn't had an accident since he was 10 weeks old. And this wasn't just your run of the mill diaharia, this was the liquid consistency of urine. The second it hit the carpet it was absorbed. It took me hours to get all of it out.
I regret buying these for hom, the rest went in the trash. And not to mention the ingredients are TERRIBLE. like mcdonalds f ok r your dog. Do your research before you give your beloved fur baby something to eat or snack on. I wish that I had.

My dog LOVES these, but they definitely don't keep him busy. The first time I gave him one, it disappeared so fast that I actually checked around the house to see if he had hidden it. I gave him another one and watched him devour it in less than 5 seconds. He's a 30 lbs. terrier who's an aggressive chewer, so I'm always looking for safe things to satisfy his chewing urge. I probably won't buy these again because they are more expensive and don't last any longer than Milkbones.

My yorkie really liked these the first few times I would give them to him. He could chew them up in no time, though. After going through a couple bags of them over the course of a few months, I noticed he wasn't eating them right away. He started hiding them all over my house. I'm not sure if he just didn't like them anymore or what was going on, but I do not buy them for him anymore since he won't chew them up.

My Labrador, Chewy, LOVES Busy Bones, so I do buy them from time to time for a treat. I like to keep them on hand for thunderstorms, to calm his nerves with a little chew action! My only complaint would be that he can easily eat an entire large one in just minutes, so they don't last as long as I would like. Still, from the look of contentment on Chewy's face when he gets one....I'll definitely buy them! :)

My 3 dogs have been big fans of these for years. They only get them probably once a month, but all 3 love them to death - and I have quite the size range (10lbs - 100lbs). I think they're a little pricey and I question how good they are for my pups (which is why they don't get them more often) since Purina has gotten some bad press recently, but since they love them so much, I'm giving them 5 stars!

My dog is a treat loving fiend. I am always trying to find affordable and healthy options to give him to satisfy his need to chew. The busy bone is a great option because he goes crazy at the site of it and never leaves it one he is given one. The only problem I have is that the bone itself doesn't last very long. I have a small dog and he can chew it up in about an hour.

My dogs absolutely love these Busy Bones! They don't have a bad smell which some dog products do. They help clean the teeth of both dogs. It's a decently priced for the treats. It last a fair amount of time with the Jack Russel but my Belgian Malinois destroys his in no time flat. So I wished they lasted a bit longer but I will buy again. All in all good product

My dog LOVES these! If she is very hyper, we like to give her one of these. She does this cute thing where she likes to play "hide and seek" with the bone. She'll hide them around the house and we have to find it for her. The only complaint I have is that I wish there were more in the bag. I would definitely recommend these for dog owners!

My dog, a 90lb lab mix, loves these! She's not a hard chewer so she's not a fan of things like nylabones but these are edible rather than just for chewing. They also tend to go on sale at Target pretty frequently. The only negative I have is that my (chubby) dog finishes them faster than I would like. They only keep her busy for awhile.

My small pup absolutely loves these bones. They come in bigger ones and tiny ones for smaller breeds. But they are extremely hard and I feel like it's hard on her teeth. She also swallows big pieces of it whole and chokes occasionally. I wish they were softer and easier to eat, so I probably won't continue to purchase these.

Will these really keep a dog busy, or do they only last a few minutes?

Like any dog, mine likes new treats; however, I've noticed that as he's eating it, whether on the bed or the carpet, it tends to leave either a red or beige colored stain. Also, bits and pieces are left on the floor and are very sticky & tough to clean up. Anyone else have this problem?
