When I gave my dogs these rope bone toys they started playing with them right and have not stopped playing with them since. They throw them around, chew on it and love when you play tug of war with them. These ropes are made very well. They are really strong. I have a huge dog and he can not rip it apart and doesn't even rip peices from it. This toy will last for a very long time. I am very satisfied with my purchase and so are my dogs. I will be using these toys from now on and would recommend this product to anyone.
