We really love that this toy is both made of cotton (only) and in the USA. Other ropes are made of "blends" that nobody knows what’s in them. This toy is our retriever’s new favorite, for now ha,ha,ha. It frays though, but we prefer that to “indestructible” toys. It is great to be able to buy toys for our pup that we can trust.
My pup chewed thru it in a couple weeks, so we had to order a new one. We still prefer it to synthetic ones though. It maybe the smell but he loves to sleep with it. Great destructible product!
My border colly loves this toy, it’s her favorite by far. I bought these about a month ago and even though we play a lot, they have frayed just a bit. I bought two, one stays clean inside and the other one outside. I love that it’s made in the USA from US grown cotton only.
Day one we took this rope outside and it ended up stained with dirt and grass. White rope doesn't hold up well outside. Anyway, I was able to wash it and since it's just cotton most of the stains came out. Other than that, my dog likes it.
We bought two of these for our two Collies. Don't buy if you want a forever toy. You will see the wear and tear after the first couple of uses. So far they both love them. I guess the higher price is justified by the long term health benefits. We have always been very conscious about slow poisoning of our pups with cheap toys.
