Best Hemp Dog Toys

Why choose hemp dog toys?

Hemp products are TOUGH and much stronger than cotton dog toys so they hold up longer, meaning you buy less toys.

Hemp products are NATURALLY anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, mildew-free and rot-free so they stay clean and smell free, meaning a healthy toy choice for your dog and less need for washing.

Hemp is a plant and is 100% BIODEGRADABLE which makes it easy on the earth at the end of its useful life. No worry about the toys spending hundreds of years taking up space in landfills.
