Dog toys are a bit like shoes, handbags and fishing lures, we keep buying them but we’re not quite sure why. Maybe because of looks, maybe we feel guilty leaving our fur babies at home alone all day or maybe we are looking for the elusive long-lasting “indestructible” toy.
Let’s face it, we have all been lured by claims of super strong, tuff rating 10+ and the ever popular indestructible dog toy (us included). Yeah right. I’m not sure if there is such a toy as indestructible, but Scoobie Chews come pretty close.
Made from strong but soft polyester cloth, these are certainly very tuff. Rope toys offer the best bang for your buck and are OUR favourite type of dog toy.
We have been making pet treats for a long time, and sell a range of quality pet accessories including dog and cat toys. Aided by 4 seasoned lab assistants, Bindy- Daisy- Bailey and Hank, whose job is to ensure we only sell durable, value for money accessories.
It was up to Bailey and Hank to put the Scoobie Chews through their paces. Bailey is a very very determined pup and takes her job seriously; anything that lands in her backyard must be destroyed, including the tuff 10+ toys in less than 2 hrs.
After a week of torture, the Scoobie Chews are intact – amazing. Bailey liked them so much that she had to take Hank’s as well, and as every boy dog knows sometimes it’s just easier to give in.
Handmade with love, right here in the Illawarra by a girl with a deep passion for pooches.
Many people are amazed when they pick them up for the first time, as they are very solid, and ask “what’s in the middle.” Our answer……nothing. Uniquely crafted, each knot is individual, pulled tight and then another knot and so one. If one knot is chewed through it can’t unravel, it just keeps together. Great dental toys as you fur baby can safely sink their teeth into this to help keep their teeth and gums clean and healthy.
Now I’m knot (pardon the pun) saying that you should throw away all your other dog toys, I don’t know how many times I’ve heard “I have to get out of these shoes, they are hurting my feet” and the shoes don’t end up in the bin, do they. Different toys mean different things to you pup, some can be used as a sleeping buddy or help to calm an anxious hound, but if you’re looking for a good quality, value for money toy to add to your collection why not give Scoobie Chews a go, you won’t be disappointed.
