Dog Tug Toys : Reviews of
the Most Durable & Safe

Dog tug toys can provide hours of endless “tugging” fun for your dog and an excuse for you to skip arm workouts at the gym! What more can you ask for? 

Here are the best we've found...

The point of a dog tug toy is as simple as it gets… your dog pulls one end while you or one of your dog’s buddies pulls the other end.

So you may say… "What’s wrong with the sock my dog currently uses as a tug toy?" Well, that sock may work for a day or two, but before long you’re going to be permanently barefoot!

When searching for the perfect dog tug toys, keep these three words in mind… durability, strength and material. You want your dog’s tug toys to last longer than one day and have the ability to withstand the ample biting and chewing it’s sure to receive.

Since this toy, like most everything else, will be in your dog’s mouth it’s very important that it’s made from natural organic materials.

Earth Dog Hemp Rope

The Earth Dog Hemp Rope is made from 100% hemp, which means it’s perfectly safe for your dog to chew and play with. 

This hemp rope is a simple braided design with two knotted ends to help get a good grip.  Hemp is a very strong natural material that is well suited for small dogs or big dogs who love to pull and chew extra hard. 

Because we at Organic Pet Digest care about preserving our environment, we wanted to tell you just a few quick facts about hemp:

Ruff Wear Lunker Dog Toy

This is a really cool toy for all those furry avid fetchers and “tuggers” out there. Its unique design has a rope at one end and a buoyant soft yet durable stuffed “toy” at the other. 

We like this toy for both large and small breeds and highly recommend it be used only for supervised play. This toy is durable, but not chew resistant, so only take this dog tug toy out for special play.
