Tug Pull Dog Toy
Some of the strongest toys for pets are made from rope. They come in many shapes and sizes, but one of my favourites is the Tug Pull Dog Toy. It’s easy to see why this toy has been a favourite among pet owners everywhere since it was first introduced: two strong handles on either end make tugging easier than ever before!
This toy is made from the finest Chatham hemp that’s durable enough for even the toughest pullers. There’s no better way to bond with your furry friend than by playing together with a beloved toy like this one. Give your dog an activity they’ll love while you enjoy some quality time together. Available in two sizes – medium £12.50, large £15.50.

Monkey Fist Balls
For centuries, sailors on the high seas used their hands to form a ball of rope at the end of a length. This became known as a monkey fist and was used for many purposes aboard ship including holding heavy objects from swinging, hanging lanterns or other lights overhead and even as a weapon in close combat. Nowadays we know them simply as decorative knots that make excellent dog toys.
The monkey fist is made by wrapping one length of rope around itself several times then passing it through another loop to form an eye like shape with which it can be securely tied off before being doubled back into the original knot again so that there is one loop left sticking out from the ball.
This toy is made sturdier and bouncier with the addition of a tennis ball in the centre. The resulting toy is surprisingly sturdy even for the strongest jaws and sharpest teeth. Price £10.00

A dog lead is a must-have accessory for any pet owner. It keeps your dog under control and prevents them from running away or injuring other people. But not all leads are the same, and some are better than others. Let’s take a look at one of those: The Chatham Hemp Dog Lead from Master Ropemakers of Chatham
The Chatham Hemp Dog Lead is made with finest chatham hemp rope using traditional splicing for the handle, which means it has a natural grip that won’t slip out of your hand when you need it most. The clip is made from stainless steel to ensure durability, while its 10mm or 14mm diameter ensures that even the toughest dogs will feel comfortable wearing this lead. The whipping (woloured bits on the lead) also come in different colours so you can pick your favourite. Price from £12.99.
