Bristly

Toothbrush for dogs they can use on their own effortlessly

4.4/5
About

4 out of 5 dogs suffer from oral disease by the age of 3.

Oral disease is the #1 problem among dogs.

Bristly is designed with dogs' anatomy in mind and helps them brush their own teeth, effortless.

This is a great innovation. My boy got healthy smile due to it.

I used to the traditional methods of tooth cleaning and it was horrible experience both for me and my Max.

I am very thankful for this great invention.

Pros:

Used the first version called "BriteBite". Our vet was pleased with the results, also Max has a fresh breath now.

Cons:

Not so durable.

Eases the toothbrushing process for dogs

Cons:

We've been using the beta version of Bristly, called Britebite for our dog. I'll say there's no substitute for this product, as it cleans dogs' teeth without side effects. We don't need to take our dog to the vet for tooth cleaning anymore, which is awesome.

Pros:

easy to use, very effective, worth the price

Cons:

none

Indeed, the first version left me and Jack quite satisfied. He just naturally got used to it and started chewing with great pleasure. Hope this new one will be more durable :)

Pros:

Very time-saving for a daily routine.

Cons:

None

I backed this on Kickstarter. The product was delivered several months late, without packaging. The instructions were written in tiny font and were riddled with spelling errors. The updates given by the company were unhelpful and often irrelevant to the progress of the campaign. The company is unapologetic about the lack of quality and has stopped responding to requests for refunds. The product design was changed without notifying the backers (the original product had a hole for the toothpaste, not a slot, and the product was never listed as scented).

Pros:

It's a good concept

Cons:

Bristly is flavoured and not a all durable. The slotted opening makes the toothpaste difficult to insert.

The company is the WORST! I just recently purchased it and when I noticed how it is not at all durable I tried to return it and have been ignored or sent usage guidelines. Not surprised someone has had a very similar experience. They won't be around long.

My dogs were exited to use it but the same way as any other toy I have given. They just chewed it for some minutes the first day but lost interest after even when I was pushing them to do it. Both products were broken on the corners at their base the very same day

Pros:

The idea looked fine though I don't think it will replace the toothbrush

Cons:

Not different from any other toy to my dogs

*Read the other comments about poor customer service and read the sketchy return policy before buying this product!* I purchased the appropriate size for my dog and followed the guidelines for usage exactly. I could immediately tell that my dog will destroy this product in no time. I contacted the company to return it and have received automated responses that contain “usage guidelines” and videos on usage or otherwise been completely ignored. It’s terrible/non-existent customer service and we all know any company that has a good product allows their customers to easily return the product because they stand behind it’s quality.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!

I don't know what the designers were thinking. Early photos showed the opening to the toothpaste reservoir as being round. I purchased two of these, with the toothpaste made by the same company, but the toothpaste bottle has a round opening (like any other bottle of toothpaste), but the toothbrush has a long narrow opening -- about big enough to put a butter knife down into. How the heck you're supposed to get a round stream of toothpaste into a long, narrow hole is beyond me, and without it, the dogs have no interest. Total waste of money. By the way - the toothpaste has the consistency of glue. It is sticky and stringy when you touch it.

Pros:

The concept was good........

Cons:

Strong plastic odor Unusable as advertised Consistency of the toothpaste Price

First of all, lat me say that I detest writing bad reviews. However, this needs to be said. I saw ads for this product everywhere; Claiming to be the WORLD’S BEST teeth cleaning toy for my dog (no matter the size). So, of course, I spent almost $30 for this “amazing” tool. Only to find out that if your dog can tear through it in a week, that they’ll ask you 3 invasive emails full of questions about if your dog was supervised during their time with it?? I wanted to believe in this product for our 54lb boxer, (he’s literally our baby & we get him the best). No toy is indestructible, but this particular site doesn’t even stand behind the durability of their product. Please go to Bark Box, heavy chewer..they atleast have a 100% or money back guarantee on their chews. NO QUESTIONS ASKED. Sorry Bristly, but your customer service wasted my money, time & patience. Hopefully you get better for other customers.
