When we say this dog toy is durable, we mean it! We tested out the Gnawt-a-Cone from Ruffwear and were surprised to find that it stood up to even heavy chewers. This durable dog toy is still in great condition after enduring five months of playtime and dog chewing so far! We couldn’t help but add it to our holiday gift guide for dogs. Its natural latex rubber makes it chew resistant so your dog’s teeth bounce back instead of piercing through. Gnawt-a-Cone also acts as an interactive dog toy as it’s designed to engage and reward our furry friends. Its faceted surface massages gums and creates an erratic bounce to engage your dog in exercise and mental stimulation. Its easy-to-clean internal chamber holds peanut butter or large treats, enabling your furry friend to work for their reward. A perfect interactive dog toy for the holidays!
