Smug Mutts Hemp and wood toys are perfect for interactive play between canine and human. The earthy smell of the soft and natural hemp rope combined with the splinterless beech wood also make for an exciting combination of durable materials! So whether your four legged friend prefers a game of tug of war, throw and fetch, Smug Mutts Hemp and wood toys are guaranteed to bring your dog hours of fun!
Smug Mutts toys are made from responsibly sourced wood and organically grown European sourced hemp.
Natural Hemp Rope benefits the environment as well as your dog - here's why:
- Sheds in short length fibers which are safer if digested in small amounts unlike cotton and other synthetic rope toys.
- Naturally anti-microbial and resistant to mould.
- Can act as a natural tooth brush and the soft texture helps massage dogs gums.
- Has a lovely earthy smell which dogs love!
- No herbicides, pesticides or chemicals are required in the growing process.
- Requires very little water to grow compared to cotton, and it returns 60-70% of the nutrients it takes from the soil.
FSC Beech Wood
Beech is a widely available hardwood and it makes a fantastic alternative to plastic - here's why;
- It is strong and durable.
- A close grain structure means no large splinters or sharp chunks should break off.
- When chewed the wood becomes soft and when dry if it feels rough it can be sanded back to its former glory.
- Contains no additional treatments, chemicals or preservatives.
- Non-toxic and is even used in children's teething toys due to its qualities!
- Can be treated with coconut oil to preserve the wood.
Smug Mutts toys have been designed and manufactured by a British husband and wife team Ben and Natalie.
On discovering that there are very few plastic free dog toy options available on the market they decided to use their skills and professional design engineering experience to create their own.
Smug Mutts produces innovative products for dogs that are not only simple and stylish and fun for them to play with, but are British made, eco-friendly, sustainable and plastic free.
