The Bow Wow Buddy

What is a Bow Wow Buddy?

The Bow Wow Buddy is not a toy. It is a safety device with a playful look and feel. It’s a simple-to-use, dog-friendly safety device designed to tightly grip Bow Wow Labs’ long term chews, such as the Safe Fit Bully Sticks™ and collagen sticks, preventing dogs from swallowing and choking on the last little bit. Bow Wow Buddy maximizes enjoyment for dogs while minimizing stress for owners. Once your pup chews the stick down, remove and discard the last bit of stick, then wash and store the Bow Wow Buddy in a safe place until the next use. The Bow Wow Buddy Safety Device comes in 6 different sizes that range from an X-Small for dogs under 15 pounds all the way through the XX-Large for dogs over 100+ pounds. Not sure which size to order for your pup? Take a look at our SIZE CHART or email us at and we will be happy to help you. The most important pairing will be making sure you are buying the right Bow Wow Buddy for the Safe Fit Bully Stick™ you will be using, even for super chewers. If for example your dog is 60 lbs but prefers midsized sticks, we'll have you try out the Bow Wow Buddy Small first since the Bow Wow Buddy LG will be too big for a midsized Safe Fit Bully Stick. If you're not sure what version to order for your pup, no problem, we can help. Just shoot us a note at

Where can I buy a Bow Wow Buddy?

Right here on our website! We also sell Bow Wow Buddy Safety Devices, Safe Fit Bully Sticks™ and Bow Wow Buddy Starter Kit on Amazon! Bow Wow Labs also has a Retailer Program. Do you own a pet store or know someone who owns a pet retail space? Now you can carry our products in store! Check out the Retailer Program section of our website for more information.

How do I use the Bow Wow Buddy?

Using the knob on the side of the Bow Wow Buddy, unscrew the bolt enough for the Safe Fit Bully Stick™ to fit in the center hole.
Hold the Bow Wow Buddy so that the hole is in the center of your palm, and insert the Safe Fit Bully Stick into the hole. The bottom of the Safe Fit Bully Stick should rest on your hand and be even with the bottom edge of the Bow Wow Buddy.
To tighten it in place, twist the knob in a clockwise position until the pointed end of the bolt pushes into the Safe Fit Bully Stick.
Once the knob is all the way tight, give the Safe Fit Bully Stick a tug to make sure it is snug.

What is the Bow Wow Buddy made of and how long will it last?

The Bow Wow Buddy is made of durable Nylon material. It has been tested for lead and BPA and is free of both! It is meant to be durable and strong for your pup but just remember the Bow Wow Buddy is a safety device and not a chew toy! It should last throughout many cycles of use as long as the appropriate sized dog is using the appropriate sized Bow Wow Buddy. The Bow Wow Buddy™ Safety Device is dishwasher safe for easy clean up after chewing sessions. Please also note that your pup should always be supervised when using the Bow Wow Buddy. If your dog finishes chewing their Safe Fit™ Bully Stick and is then left with a safety device that smells like a bully stick but with no bully stick to chew, chances are they will try to chew the Bow Wow Buddy itself which will then start to show wear and tear. Once the Safe Fit Bully Stick has been chewed, store the Bow Wow Buddy in a safe place until your dog's next chew session.

I have my own bully sticks but not all of them fit the Bow Wow Buddy, what do I do?

We can only guarantee the safety of the Bow Wow Buddy when using Bow Wow Labs bully sticks. The reason why our sticks are premium (aside from being grass-fed, hormone- and chemical-free) is that EACH stick is hand-sorted and selected by our team to fit the Bow Wow Buddy. That means that when you buy a 10-pack or a 20-pack from us, each one of those sticks has been selected because it fits the Bow Wow Buddy. That's why our sticks are such a great value!

Where are your bully sticks sourced from?

Our Safe Fit Bully Sticks™ are sourced from grass-fed, free-range cattle. They are never treated with chemicals and are 100% hormone-free. They are also baked at high temperatures after they are hung to dry to further eliminate any harmful bacteria. We source our beef from South America and Turkey because the production is more sustainable and the beef is of higher quality.

Does the Bow Wow Buddy hold other dog chews?

Bow Wow Labs can only guarantee the safety of your pet when Bow Wow Labs Safe Fit Bully Sticks™ are used with the Bow Wow Buddy. That said, if the chews you have are a similar size, shape and hardness to Safe Fit Bully Sticks, you might be in luck!

What do I do once my dog has chewed the bully stick down?

Unscrew the tightening knob located on the side of your Bow Wow Buddy to release the last piece of the Safe Fit Bully Stick™ – the choking hazard – and properly dispose of it. Store your Bow Wow Buddy in a safe spot for its next use.

I think I ordered the wrong sized product for my dog, can I change my order?

No problem at all! We're here to help make sure you get the correct size product for your pup. Please shoot us a note at and we'll be more than happy to assist you.

What was the inspiration behind Bow Wow Labs?

Sometimes unfortunate experiences lead to positive outcomes. Finn, like many dogs, is a fun loving dog who enjoys bully sticks and long-term chews until one day Finn had a nasty choking encounter with the short end of a bully stick. The good thing is, Finn survived the choke and this incident inspired the Bow Wow Buddy, the only patented pet safety device designed to securely hold bully sticks and long-term chews in place so dogs can enjoy all the benefits of chewing. Over 200,000 pets visit veterinarian offices or emergency facilities for choking each year but the good thing is that choking is something that can be prevented. The Bow Wow Buddy is the device that can keep dogs safe and puts pet parents' minds at ease!
