It was a lifesaver for us because Gretel had some anxiety issues when she came to live with us. I was told she was fine in a crate when I adopted her but that clearly was not the case when I brought her home. To protect her, and our home, it was important to place her in a crate when we were not home.
To recount what we went through during those first few weeks in regards to the crate is a looooong story. The short story is that once we started giving her a Busy Buddy Waggle treat toy to obsess over when we left, all of the problems disappeared.
Gretel LOVES that toy. She often carries it around with her…even to go out to go potty.
When I visited the PetSafe headquarters in October, the generously gave Gretel and I a bunch of products to review and give away. Today I am giving away TWO Busy Buddy treat toy prizes.
Each prize package includes:
1. Busy Buddy Barnacle treat toy – The multi-chambered Barnacle features three patented Treat Meters® (plastic prongs that make it harder for the treats to fall out – these can be trimmed with scissors to make it easier if needed) to randomly dispense treats while your dog plays. The shape of this toy causes it to bounce around when your dog plays with it, adding to the mental stimulation and exercise.
2. indigo Smokehouse Strips – Smokehouse Strips are a natural jerky-like treat you can cut up and stuff inside of treat toys. These treats are made in the U.S.A. Real fresh chicken or pork is the main ingredient, with only premium cuts of USDA-inspected meat. Because they are preservative free, they come with a sealable bag for storing them in the fridge after opening.
3. Busy Buddy Waggle – This one is Gretel’s favorite toy. The Waggle has a flexible middle that wags back and forth during play. The balls on either end of the toy are compressible to encourage chewing and feature the patented Treat Meter® prongs.
I am giving away TWO prize packs – one for small/medium dogs and one for large dogs. The value of these packs is between $28 and $38, depending on which prize pack that you win.
To enter, you must be 18 years old or older and live in the US. If that is you, just answer the question in the Rafflecopter widget below. Once you answer that first question, you will be given more opportunities to enter.
The winner will be selected on Saturday, November 29th at midnight PST. I will notify the winner via email. The winner will have 48 hours to claim their prize (after which another winner will be chosen).
