The Buster Food Cube: The Best Way To Feed Your Dog

Updated on July 6, 2014

Introducing the Buster Food Cube

My dog (Lexie) used to eat her food so fast, she ended up vomiting after every meal. Although it was time consuming, this led to us hand feeding her one piece at a time. After months of doing this, I finally decided to do a little research to see if there was a product out there that could help us. And alas, there was.

When we received the Buster Food Cube, it literally changed our lives. We were able to fill it, give it to Lexie and walk away knowing she could happily eat her meals without worrying about her getting sick afterwards.

What is the Buster Food Cube?

And how do you use it?

The Buster Food Cube is a little plastic cube that holds your dogs food. You fill the cube with your dogs food and as they roll the cube around, food falls out one piece at a time.

To fill the cube, just pour the dry dog food into the opening. When it gets full, shake the cube and the food will disappear into the cube. Keep filling until you've reached the amount you normally feed your dog.

You can control how fast the food comes out by turning the inner tube from minimum to maximum.

The Buster Food Cube is very durable. Our dog has been using her cube for over 5 years and it's still in great shape!

Why you should use the Buster Food Cube.

It provides mental stimulation for your dog and provides a way for your dog to rid itself of excess energy. It's also great for dogs who eat too fast.

See it in action!

This is a video of my dog, Lexie using her Buster Food Cube. Lexie has a habit of eating her food too fast. She doesn't chew it, just swallows it by the mouthful. We have to give her food in portions because she'll eat until she makes herself sick. Then she'll eat some more. The Buster Food Cube was a savior for us because it's an easy way to control the portion size and also to limit how fast she eats.

Come on, Let your dog play with his food!

In my opinion, there's only one downside to the Buster Cube. It needs a little resistance in order to roll, so it doesn't work on wooden floors or linoleum. Since we have wooden floors throughout the house, this posed a problem for us. At first we set it on a big rug, but it would only take seconds for Lexie to roll it onto the bare floor. Then we started giving it to her on the bed. After a few days, she learned to roll it around the edges of the bed without letting it fall off. She's become such a master, it hasn't fallen off the bed in years!

      This Buster Mini Cube may be a good thing for Rosie, our Chihuahua. She needs the exercise and I think it will be helpful to slow down her eating. Thanks for finding it and sharing the information. Great Job!

      @BuckHawkcenter: Yeah, it took her about two days to figure it out. Now she's a pro. That cube doesn't go anywhere she doesn't want it to go. lol
