Greenies Original Smart Curve Toy: Product Review


When I saw the Greenies Original Smart Curve Toy on sale, I jumped on it. I’m not a pet owner that goes overboard with toys but I do like for her to have something to chew on other than my shoes (a story for another day…). I usually buy the Kong brand of dog toys because she is an aggressive chewer and Kong toys hold up under her powerful jaws. We haven't tried Greenies, the design looked dog-friendly and the price seemed reasonable so I was willing to give it a try.

Product Design
The shape is interesting. The chew toy is designed for a dog to hold one end steady while she chews on the other, which has teeth cleaning nubs. Apparently, that’s supposed to be the business end of the toy. The package claim states: “It’s unique shape allows your dog to chew with comfort.”

Product Material
Greenies Original Smart Curve Toy is made out of nontoxic rubber. The packaging claims: “A tough, durable toy made with natural rubber.”

Price
I got the product on sale at a local pet supply store. The sticker SRP was $16.99. It was reduced to $14.99 and then put on the clearance table. I paid $7.99. 

Use
Frosty had one end (the holding end, not the business end – apparently she didn’t read the directions) destroyed in seconds. Of course I was supervising her, thank goodness. Hunks of Greenies rubber were everywhere. Amazed at how flimsy the toy now seemed, I got the pieces up and reread the packaging. I quote: “For a more exciting experience, peanut butter or dog paste may be spread into the grooves on the brush portion of this toy.” Fair enough, I didn’t read the instructions either. The brush portion of the toy was still intact so I spread peanut butter on the that end and stood over Frosty to see what would happen. She started working the peanut butter end but again, within seconds, she was pulling the hard rubber nubs off the brush. Mind you, the product is one complete piece of molded rubber and she was destroying it effortlessly.    
Conclusion
We’re going back to Kong dog toys.

Do you have a favorite dog chew toy?

 
Greenies is a trademark of Nutro Products, Inc. and it’s affiliates. This is my experience only, I have no association with the manufacturers or distributors of Greenies dog toys and treats.

I won't buy any Greenies products after hearing nasty things about them several years ago. My JRT destroys everything, but those that last the longest are the really hard nylabone ones.

Eliza Wynn said...

That's such a great picture of Frosty checking out the "wrong" end of the chew toy.

Jo said...

Obviously this isn't the chew toy for Frosty! I was a long time fan of the Greenies 'tooth brush' treats until the big story of a few years back. It horrified most of us who loved the idea and the results! My dogs had great teeth and gums. I have gone back to them now after a long break and seeing their teeth getting tarter build up again. They have reformulated them and they are now owned by a differnt parent company. Safe again and not quite as effective, but better than trying to brush unwilling puppy teeth.
Good to know about this toy...not for my chompers either!

When it comes to toys, nothing beats an old tennis ball. They're cheap too.

Good thing you supervised her so she didn't eat the pieces of rubber!! That seems like a pretty flimsy chew toy if she destroyed it in one sitting.

My Zoie eats those right up and I think that is what there are suppose to do. I saw them on Doctor Zo's TV show. They are suppose to help them brush the teeth?? Zoie loves them!!
