Today we are doing a pet product review on a Chamomile-scented calming toy from the Busy Buddy®Line at by PetSafe®. Now normally with toys I call in a few reinforcements for the review from Rolo’s former shelter; FMSPCA but this time Rolo did it all on his own! This is only the SECOND toy in 5 years that Rolo has had any interest in. The first one was also a PetSafe toy! These toys are designed to help with separation anxiety & stress.

Let’s start this product review!
First lets talk about the product design & packaging. The large cut out in the front of the package allows pet parents to see the product, smell the chamomile and touch it. I myself have a great time falling asleep at night so I have never had to drink chamomile tea but I know many people who drink it for relaxation, calming purposes and as a sleep aid. The calming toys come in two sizes, the medium size ,like the one Rolo reviewed, and a small size for the smaller pups. Inside the treat are little rubber prongs that hold the treats or food inside. Depending on how much of a challenge your pup wants, you can cut the rubber prongs to allow treats/food to come out easier. Always cut the prongs smaller than needed as they will not magically grow back. This pack also comes with two different toys as you can see, now you can rotate back and forth between the two toys to keep them entertained.
I wasn’t to sure if Rolo would even take a liking to this new toy, as he is a simple, low-key dog. I was actually ready to head up to his former shelter with it to try on some high energy pups who I have used in previous toy reviews. So this was super exciting for me! This was a great way to mentally tire him out by having to find a way to dig that treat out of there, instead of just me giving him a treat without him working for it, plus the chamomile scent is soothing.
“Designed to help with separation anxiety and stress, the PetSafe Busy Buddy Chamomile-Scented Calming Toys dispense food and assist with problem-solving by distracting your pet from the cause of their anxiety, such as thunderstorms, fireworks, vet visits or other stressful situations. The soothing chamomile scent helps reduce anxiety, while the patented Treat Meter randomly dispenses treats to keep dogs entertained and playing longer.” — Paragraph Quote: PetSafe press release.
