Durable Rope Toys for Dogs

There aren’t many toys that last more than 5 minutes with my weimaraner Remy. He seeks to destroy all toys.

So far the only toys that hold up to him are the toughest Kong toys and the largest Nylabones so those are what we buy.

However, my dog LOVES to play tug of war, so I wanted to find him the most durable rope toy I could find in the largest size.

It’s from a brand called Mammoth and we went with the largest size, the Mammoth Flossy Chew 5-knot rope toy in “Super XL.” It’s 72″ long!

The rope toy has lasted over 2 weeks so far and I expect it to be around for at least a couple of months.

This is not a sponsored post. I just like this rope toy and wanted to share it with you.

Durable Rope Toys for Dogs – Mammoth Flossy Rope Toy Review

The rope toys from Mammoth come in all sorts of sizes ranging from the XS 10″ rope toy all the way to the 72″ toy I bought. View them on Amazon HERE.

I went with the largest toy because I wanted the strongest rope toy possible for my crazy, destructive dog. I was also hoping my two dogs might play nicely together with a longer tug toy. Turns out my older dog Ace the Lab mix still refuses to play tug with Remy. So we play separately but they both do enjoy the toy.

I’m happy with the rope toy’s durability so far. Remy is able to pull tiny threads from it if he sits and chews on it, so I don’t let him play with it alone unless he’s busy dragging it around or shaking it, which he loves to do!

He can easily pull the small threads off the end of the toy as he does with any rope toy, so this is not something I can leave out all the time or he’ll eat it.

The long length of this toy seems a bit over the top, but it’s more fun to play with! It’s almost like a “flirt pole.”

What is the cost?

The largest version of this toy, the one that we have, is $15.43 on Amazon. Get it HERE.

Prices range from $3.99 on up depending on which size you go with. The regular XL (36″) is probably best for most dogs. We just decided to go crazy and get the longest length.

I’ll probably buy another one of these ropes every six months or so for my dogs.

What’s unique about the Mammoth Flossy Rope Toy?

These rope toys are more durable than other rope toys I’ve tried, and I like the wide variety of lengths. You can choose the best length for your dog.

The company claims the rope fibers “floss” and clean the dog’s teeth, hence the name “Mammoth Flossy.”

I suppose it would floss the teeth a bit but that’s not why I bought this toy.

I got it because my dog LOVES tug of war and I thought it would be an extra way to exercise him and engage with him.

Pros of the Mammoth Rope Toy:

  • Comes in many different lengths
  • Durable and should last awhile
  • Fun for dogs!
  • Good price & sold on Amazon
  • Good way to engage with your dog
  • Longer length makes it easier for two dogs to play tug together

  • My dog likes to chomp up and down the rope, so the longer length allows him to be more careless and accidentally bite my hands. This is more about my dog’s poor behavior than the toy itself.

I would recommend the Mammoth Rope Toy for …

I would recommend this toy for heavy chewers and any dog that love to play tug!

If your dog tends to get overly excited or aggressive during tug of war, this might not be the best toy for her. Remy is pretty intense at everything he does, so we have to keep our tug sessions to five minutes or so. He just gets very rough and out of control!

I would not recommend the longer length if your dog tends to chomp “up and down” on the rope because it’s easy for the dog to bite your hands. It’s hard to explain but if your dog does this, I think you’ll know what I mean!

All in all, I really like these toys and that’s why I wanted to share it with you.

Ordering information

You can order this toy on Amazon. Prices range from $3.99 for the small size up to about $15 for the largest size.
