Chews on Belay rope toys were created by Gwen and Jess, two avid climbers who had way too much extra climbing rope lying around their home. They decided to start making toys for their dog, Cook, who has been the inspiration for every product in their store. Every product is 100% handmade in Idaho from recycled climbing rope and dog-safe Tuff Ball® tennis balls. The toys are all machine washed with nonchemical soap to remove any dirt they picked up as climbing ropes. Belay tuff dog toys are extremely durable and provide hours of entertainment for you and your pets. A portion of every purchase is donated to an animal organization.
