Dog rope toys are one of the most 'pupular' types of toys on the market. They 're safe, strong, long-lasting, and come in a huge variety of styles, sizes, colors and shapes.
It's no wonder they're so popular!
Plus rope toys for dogs have a 'hidden' benefit too.... the abrasive action of the braided rope, helps to keep your pups
teeth clean and his gums healthy.
Most well-made rope bones are very tough, and their durability makes them a favorite choice for the owners of big dogs and 'power chewers' of all sizes.

Others use other materials as well as the rope, such as canvas, nylon, sheepskin or plush fabric, and the huge range of different styles means that most dogs own more than one of these great toys.
