I tried the “smart” ball that supposedly keeps your dog engaged, entertained, and happy—even when you’re not around! And here’s what happened…
Every time I leave my house, I feel so much guilt about my 4-year-old Lab, Milo, being home alone.
So that I feel just a little less bad about it, I check in via my doggie cam app from time to time to see what he’s up to. And it almost always looks something like this…
So that I feel just a little less bad about it, I check in via my doggie cam app from time to time to see what he’s up to. And it almost always looks something like this… .
Milo paces around for a few minutes before heading for his basket of toys. Then he pulls them out one by one, tearing them EACH to shreds. When he finally gets bored of all that, he stares out the front window waiting for me to come home— it’s so sad!
By the time I get back, I walk into what looks like a crime scene in my living room: white stuffing, plastic squeakers, and torn-up fabric from the toys Milo destroyed ALL over the floor.
I thought I was destined to feel this guilt for the rest of Milo’s life, but that’s when my friend Laura told me about a “smart ball” that would solve all of these problems, and more.
You see, I had my friend Laura, who just so happens to be a veterinarian at the local animal rescue, over for dinner. And I was complaining BIG TIME about having to clean up Milo’s “path of toy destruction” before she arrived.
Over a plate of tacos and a glass of margs, I asked her if this was “normal” given her years of experience caring for pets.
“Does it only happen when you leave him alone?” she asked.
I nodded my head.
“Then it’s probably a bit of separation anxiety… and he’s also just bored,” she said.
That’s when Laura took out her phone, pulled up a website, and showed me the screen:
“Here, you should get one of these!”
On the screen was an image that looked like any other ball, so I asked her, “What's so special about this?”
Her response? “This thing is the coolest toy ever! We got a few for the dogs at the rescue, and they love them!”
She then went on to explain that this toy, called the BarxBuddy Busy Ball, is a “smart” ball with built-in motion sensors that keep the toy rolling and bouncing around on its own. She explained it as a “constant game of fetch for your pup, and you don’t even have to touch the thing!”
I was willing to try anythingto keep Milo busy while I was away—especially if it prevented me from coming home to a mess of chewed-up toys.
So I went ahead and ordered one as we were sitting there, right at the dinner table, and then got super excited for it to arrive!
The BarxBuddy Busy Ball is a toy ball made of tear-resistant materials meant to withstand lots of chewing, while keeping your dog entertained, engaged, and happy—all on its own!
You don’t even need to “start it up.” The built-in motion sensors hidden inside activate anytime your dog touches it, instantly starting a game of automated fetch.
And its smart programming technology moves the ball in a randomized pattern. This means the ball will bounce and roll in a variety of different directions and always keep your dog guessing on its next move.
A single hour of charge can provide up to 8 hours of nonstop entertainment for your pup. With the BarxBuddy Busy Ball, your dog will be occupied and engaged for hours on end—even when you’re not around to play with them.
A few days after I’d ordered the ball from the company’s website, it arrived at my front door.
Coincidentally, the package was delivered in the late afternoon, just prior to my heading out to run a few errands—leaving Milo at home for a couple hours on his own.
I wanted to put it straight to the test, so I rolled the ball in his direction and walked out the door.
I still felt guilty about leaving him, but I decided not to check in on my doggie cam that day. Instead I waited until I got home to see how Milo had fared.
When I walked through the front door I noticed a slight shuffling noise coming from the kitchen.
I meandered through the living room toward the direction of the noise— and was pleasantly surprised to find all of his regular toys still neatly collected in his basket. (Good boy, Milo!)
When I got to the kitchen, that’s when I saw it…
The BarxBuddy Busy Ball came rolling out from behind the island.
Milo followed the ball, and I watched as he continued to swat it with his paw and nudge it with his nose. Man, was he loving chasing it as it bounced and rolled around the kitchen floor!
He was so occupied with his new toy, he didn’t even stop to acknowledge or greet me as I walked in the room—his usual behavior.
Here’s the best part.
(And I wasn’t even expecting it...)
Normally, Milo has a lot of energy! He requires several rounds of tug-of-war and playing fetch down the hallway before tiring out enough to go to sleep for the night
But thanks to the BarxBuddy Busy Ball, Milo had worked off all of his energy and enjoyed a peaceful night’s sleep after just a couple hours of play… and I DIDN’T have to do anything!
Milo’s had the BarxBuddy Busy Ball for a few months now, and it’s become his favorite toy —and mine too!
I was concerned that he would get bored with it, but NO! He’s shown no signs of losing interest at all in playing with this smart ball.
Oh, and it still looks as good as new. Just a few teeth marks in the exterior.
Can’t Be Destroyed! – The ball is made of durable TPU and food-grade plastic that’s completely free of harmful chemicals and designed to withstand endless hours of chewing without tearing or cracking. (In short, it’s 100% nontoxic and can’t be ripped to shreds!)
Alleviates Separation Anxiety – It’s more than just an ordinary ball. This toy acts as a “companion” for your furry best friend when you’re not around, and keeps him/her occupied and entertained instead of bored to pieces.
Completely Hands-Free – Just turn the ball on once and then put it on the floor for your dog to chase around. When your pup gets tired, the ball switches off until they are ready to play with it again.
Your Pup Will Never Grow Bored of This Toy! – The BarxBuddy Busy Ball is programmed to keep your dog guessing and on its toes by alternating between rolling and bouncing. It NEVER repeats the same pattern.
Won’t Get Stuck, EVER! – You know that look of disappointment when your pup’s favorite toy gets kicked underneath the furniture? That won’t ever happen with this one! The BarxBuddy Busy Ball’s built-in motion sensors prevent the ball from getting stuck or lost under the sofa or TV stand. It will just move itself back into your dog’s view of sight. How cool is that?!
Helps Tire Out Any Dog – Just like playing fetch or tug-of-war, the BarxBuddy Busy Ball helps your dog to get most (if not all!) of his energy out after just a few minutes of play. Say goodbye to the after-dinner “zoomies”... this ball will have your dog ready for bed in no time!
Fun for Your Dog—and for You! – Though this ball is great for times when your dog is left alone, it’s so much fun to watch him/her engage with it when you are home. The ball’s randomized patterns will have your dog running, jumping, and spinning around in all sorts of directions—it’s so entertaining!
Waterproof & Slobber Proof – Whether your dog takes the ball outside and it rolls through a puddle, or manages to “catch” the ball and slobber all over it, the BarxBuddy Busy Ball was designed so that moisture won’t ever leak through the ball’s outer shell and cause damage to the electronics inside.
Fast & Easy Charging – You can use any standard USB charging port to recharge the ball. A single hour of charge time provides up to 8 hours of nonstop play.
Automatic Rest Mode – If your dog gets tired, the ball automatically detects it’s no longer being chased and turns itself off. And it instantly reactivates when your dog engages with it again.
Virtually No Maintenance! – I occasionally wipe it off with a wet rag to get rid of Milo’s excess slobber. And I have to charge it too, of course, but that’s it!
Honestly, the BarxBuddy Busy Ball is the best toy I’ve ever purchased for Milo.
Simply knowing that he’s got something to keep him occupied and entertained while I’m out of the house has completely eliminated the anxiety I used to feel leaving him alone.
(And I’m pretty sure you’ll feel the same after your dog tries this “smart” ball too.)
