    This was no sooner out of the package than it somehow ended up in Phoebe's (Chocolate Lab) mouth as she tore around the room and tossed it up in the air a few times. She's keeping a watchful eye on it ever since, including sleeping with it. It was also in my bed when I woke up this morning. Beautifully made and the rope looks like it will last a long time. The tennis ball is gone but I knew that would happen. The remaining rope portion is great for fetching and our nightly tugging sessions. We are both delighted with "our" new toy!

    This is a beautifully made toy! Since it happens to be in my favorite purplish color I've decided to keep it as a tribute to a few wonderful Labs who have gone ahead. The Tuff Twist will actually be given to my current Lab. She watched me unpack them with great interest!

    My crazy-chewer yellow lab puppy loves this toy. We had to take it away after a while though because she managed to tear off a lot of the fuzz from the ball. She'll get the toys back when she's out of destructive mode! These are really well made and fun to play with.

    This came quickly, however it was much smaller than what was pictured. It’s on me that I didn’t ask seller for exact measurements of this before purchasing, but it also didn’t come with the Chews on Belay tag that is shown in the pictures either. I have a large yellow lab, just like in the pictures, and what came was a ring that is maybe more appropriate for a small boxer or a spaniel/terrier or hound dog. I will know for next time, but needed this in time for Christmas (ordered on 12/2/19).

Rescued Inspiration

We got married and figured it was time to "start a family". We searched high and low on the internet and in shelters for the perfect dog and while there we so many good dogs out there, we didn't find quite the right fit. After a late night of searching on, on one of the last pages, this little face popped up on the screen and I knew we had to meet him.
I went down to the shelter with the intention of only meeting the dog, yeah right, after that little ball of fur and cutness walked in the door I knew he was our! It was love.
Realizing we needed a lot of dog toys, Chews on Belay was born. Being being avid rock climbers, we had more than enough climbing ropes around the house, and a few tuff balls we had bought earlier, I took it as a sign I needed to use them.
Cook has been the inspiration behind everything in my store.

Are your toys made from products produced in the USA?

We do our best to get rope that is produced in America. Because a lot of our rope is donated to us, we can’t guarantee that it was made in the US but we try our best. The tuff ball tennis balls are made in America!
