I purchased a Buster Cube for my Australian Shepherd in 2001, when I first adopted him from a breed rescue group. Now he is 14 1/2 - every evening after his supper, we play "Where's the Cube" - he finds the Cube, nudges it with his nose, then I fill it with kibble. He pushes it around the house with his nose until it's empty. The Cube is still in good shape after 13 years of daily use, although it has lots of surface scratches. I think that is as close to an indestructible toy as we have ever owned.

With the Buster Cube your dog has to think and work to get his treats. He has to push, roll and run before the reward comes. It is entertaining for both you and your dog.
Give your dog a good and enjoyable experience!
With the Buster Cube your dog can use his natural instincts. Let the game begin and enjoy a happy and more active dog.
Give your dog a happy and active life!
When you use the Buster Cube for your dog or puppy it forces them to use their brain. This keeps your dog occupied and therefore decreases the chance for behavioral problems to arise. Your dog is more content.
Directions for use:
The Buster FoodCube and the Buster MiniCube are very easy to use.
- Put dry treats into the cube through the opening.
- Turn the cube to distribute the food into the various compartments inside.
- Turn the central cylinder in the cube to adjust the level of difficulty.
To fill the cube:
Fill the center hole with dry treats, place your hand over the hole and shake the cube. Do this as many times as necessary to fill the cube to the desired level. (It is important that when first using the cube that there is sufficient treats in the cube so that the dog is rewarded quickly and often.) Please remember if you are allowing your dog to have access to several treats from the Buster® Cube a day, that you should modify his daily feeding amounts to avoid excessive weight gain and to keep your dog or puppy at a healthy weight.
To Clean the Cube:
The center cylinder removes for cleaning purposes.
Put your right thumb into the hole of the cylinder and turn it towards MAX.
Turn counter-clockwise again until you hear a click sound.
Now it is possible to extract the cylinder.
When replacing the cylinder please note that the tabs on the cylinder are three different sizes and should be placed into the three slots of corresponding sizes in the opening of the cube.
Turn the cylinder clockwise towards MIN. When you hear the click sound then the cylinder is back in place and will turn only between MIN and MAX.
No toy is 100% indestructible. It is unrealistic to expect that from any toy. The toys that we sell at Leerburg® are the best quality and most durable that we have found. Always supervise your dog when playing with toys. Periodically inspect all toys for damage. Do not allow your dog to continue to play with a damaged or broken toy.
When using balls as toys the handler must be aware of the size of their dog and the prey drive of their dog. Balls can kill dogs if swallowed. Possessive dogs can swallow small balls. DO NOT BUY a small ball for a large dog!

I purchased the 3" buster cube for my doberman over 5 yrs ago. We use it often, I fill with Instinct 'limited ingredient' kibble. I have since got another doberman and now the 2 of my girls leave me alone in the morning when I want to have my 'coffee time' without being pestered. It keeps them busy for a good 10 to 15 min each time I put about 1/4 cup of kibble in them. They are very easy and quick to fill, and you only need to put a small amount in them. GREAT PRODUCT! MY dobermans are chewers and have NOT damaged these a bit. One of my girls is a possessive dog, and finishes emptying hers before the younger dog. She then steals the other cube one from the younger. I have just purchased a LARGE one (5") and give that to the younger girl now. MY thief can't get her mouth around the big one to pick it up and steal it, so both are happy now. The regular Instinct Limited ingredient kibble works well in both sizes of buster cube.
