About

At Damien’s Best Dog Toys we believe that every dog (and cat!) deserves some play in their day

Damien's Best Dog Toys was originally created as a way to provide durable toys to humane societies. While working with North Country Animal League's dog trainer, I became aware of how important play time and stimulating activities were to the health and happiness of the dogs that stayed at the shelter. As I spent more time at the shelter, I found that shelters depend on donations from the public in order to provide day to day services such as food and vet care and enrichment items such as toys for the animals are often overlooked. Once I realized this, I wanted to create toys that stand up to the heavy use of the shelter environment and encourage human/K9 interactions.

Our dog and cat toys are rugged and beautiful because they use traditional knot tying techniques to create toys that exceed the quality typically found in mass produced rope toys. Our toys are made from US sourced cotton rope and handcrafted in Hardwick, Vermont. Our rope toys are great for playing tug and/or fetch. Both tug and fetch games tap into a dogs natural instincts and can be fun for both human and dog.

All of our toys are named after dogs that have been a part of our life. Damien, the company patriarch, was the oldest dog in our pack and was adopted from North Country Animal League in Morrisville, VT in 1999. Unfortunately, Damien past away in 2014. However, he legacy continues with our store and charitable giving activities.

My goal is to donate toys to an animal welfare organization with a portion of the funds generated from the sale of my dog toys. As of April 2016 we have donated 586 dog toys and 8613 cat toys to animal welfare organizations and humane societies. Check out our Facebook and Instagram pages to see what is currently happening at Damien's Best Dog Toys.
