Why your dog needs rope toys and answering some FAQs
“A tired dog is a good dog”. You have probably heard this phrase before. But what does it truly mean?
Dogs, aka, “tamed wolves”, <Read more> have the primary instinct to chase and prey. Dogs are not the kind of animals that would prefer lounging around. Therefore, it is important to keep them occupied and exercised.
But, as busy human parents, we are seldom able to spend quality time with them, let alone keep them fascinated. So what should be done, now?
Well, the easiest way, in our opinion, is to invest in some good quality dog toys. Dog toys come in a huge variety. But in order to keep your dog busy, rope toys are a must. And why do we claim so? Read below to know about the benefits of rope toys. And at the end of the blog, we will answer some frequently asked questions about rope toys.
Why are Rope toys great?
- Rope toys are perfect for games
From fetch to tug of war, rope toys can be used for all sorts of games. Rope toys with balls attached are perfect for playing fetch. Dogs take a keen interest in chewing and undoing the knots of these toys. Throwing them around and gnawing at them. Your dog would absolutely love rope toys, we can vouch for that.

- Useful for teeth cleaning
Rope toys encourage the dog to chew. This action stimulates their body to produce more saliva which rinses away food debris and bacteria. On top of that, the threads and strands of rope toys can effortlessly help remove plaque from your dog’s teeth. All this, while your pup is having a great time playing with his/her toys.

- Ease out the teething phase
If your pup is smol, we know how you struggle with losing at least one household item every day. From footwear to cables, puppies leave nothing un-chewed. It is going to be okay, though. Thank you, to whoever invented rope toys. Chewing on rope toys actually feels extremely satisfying to the puppies that are experiencing teething.
P.S. Many times, those hard plastic bones can actually make the dog’s gums bleed if he/she chews too hard on them. So it is important to find a toy that is hard and firm enough but also not as harsh as plastic bones. And the perfect fit is a rope toy!
