Trainer Andrea Arden says this is “one of the most perfect tug toys I’ve found.” It’s long enough, she says, “to allow for appropriate distance from the dog to your hand” but can be rolled up, making it easy to bring along on walks or to the park. The toy is sturdy and machine washable, and “dogs love it,” she adds.

“Leo really inspired me; I thought that other dogs might also love the knotted toy. And when a neighbor girl saw me braiding and knotting a new toy for my puppy and asked to help, I realized that the process of making the toys could be a great activity for kids-even kids with disabilities.”
