Rope Dog Toy
Woof! What’s that Lassie? Timmy’s trapped in the well again? Woof Woof! No? Oh, I see, you’ve found some plastic-free dog toys? Now that really is neat. Well done girl!
Delight your dog with these plastic-free dog toys made out of hemp rope, a natural material that is biodegradable at the end of its use. Dogs shouldn’t be gnawing on plastic any more than humans should, so choose eco-friendly pet toys for the good of your pet and the planet!
Knot sizes – all sizes are approximate as these products are handmade, so may vary by up to about 1cm for the knot size. Handle length can vary by a few centimetres, handles which are longer or shorter than this will be listed in the options drop-down box.
SMALL: Diameter 5cm, circumference 16cm approx. Suitable for puppies, ‘toy dogs’ and smaller dog breeds. Handle length – average 30cm. £9.
MEDIUM: Diameter 7cm, circumference 22cm approx. For medium-sized dogs, this is tennis ball size – which should give you the best idea of if this is the right size for your dog. Handle length – average 35cm. £10.
LARGE: Diameter 8.5cm circumference 27cm approx. For big dogs – if a tennis ball is too small for your dog, then this size is more appropriate. Handle length – average 40cm. £11.
Please choose a size suitable for your dog – vets recommend that you should only give a dog a ball that is larger than its mouth to reduce any risks of the ball getting stuck. If the entire ball fits in the dog's mouth it is too small. That goes for all balls you give a dog, not just these dog toys, especially tennis balls, which can compress with the force of a throw and expand once caught in the dog’s mouth.
These toys are for fetching and tugging. As with all dog toys, it’s best not to let your dog gnaw on these hemp ropes for too long, to reduce the risk of them eating bits of rope and ruining their toy. I’m sure you can provide them with far tastier treats for them to chew!
*Please remove the paper tape on the rope ends before giving this to your dog to play with. The ends will fray but it has been knotted so it won’t unravel any further than the knot.*
