About Petstages Toys for Dogs
Chew the Right Thing
Focus your dog’s natural chewing instincts and keep him chewing on the right things with Petstages chews. Chewing helps puppies deal with teething pain, and it helps adult dogs keep their teeth clean and exercise their jaw. It can also help relieve anxiety, boredom and frustration. Petstages chews help you create a safe and healthy outlet for all your dog’s chewing instincts.
Petstages Dogwood and Alternative Chews
Petstages makes alternatives to wood, rawhide and antler chews that let your pup chew without causing you worry. Their puppy chews include the Mini Cool Chew, which can be frozen for soothing relief, and the Mini Dental Rope Chew, with knots and rubber rings. Petstages also offers Orka chews for tough chewers.
Durable Wood Alternative
The Dogwood chew stick is made in the U.S.A. from a blend of natural wood fiber and safer synthetic materials.
Petstages Puppy Chews have textures to massage sore gums and canvas streamers help clean teeth.
Petstages Orka chew toys are made for power chewers. They stand up to tough chewing and help reduce boredom and destructive behavior.
The Real Wood Dogwood Toy
The Dogwood chew toy contains real, natural wood, so it smells like a stick fresh off the tree! It has the real wood texture and taste your dog loves, without the threat of splinters.
Great for Interactive Play
With a shape ideal for throwing and carrying, the Dogwood stick is ready for some interactive fun! Take it outdoors and toss it to your pup for retrieval training or a quick game of fetch.

This is not tough and not made for tough chewers. The rope is very thin and small. My dog has pulled the rope out in no time and it ended up being a choking hazzard along with the blue stick part. The blue stick part just basically came apart as soon as my dog stayed chewing on it and also became a choking hazard. I would not recommend for mild to tough chewers.
Got this today, it lasted less than 30 minutes. The knots at the end of the rope were not as big as they appear in the picture and my pup pulled the rope right out and then proceeded to bite pieces of the plastic off.
The rope doesn't, but the toy remains a daily toy my aussie uses for fetch, and sometimes she just sits and chews on it.
I purchased these for my welsh terriers and gave them to them on New Years Day. They loved them so I put them away with the toys I only bring out on rainy days. So they have only played with them while I toss them a few times and the cover over the rope has split and I threw it out. Very disappointed as the bowling pin toy is out all the time, played with often and like new, which is what my other Petstages toys have done.
In less than 5 minutes, my dog broke a part off. To prevent him from eating/swallowing it, I took it away... kind of thought it would have lasted longer...
My 6 month old pup opened this for Christmas and chewed the rope out also chewed chunks of the blue off the body of toy. Not good at all!
The blue plastic crumbles off and is dangerous if swallowed. Toy did not last more than a few times playing with it! It was given as a gift to us. Right in the garbage it goes!
All of my dogs absolutely love this toy. Spent Hours for the first day playing tug. Definitely one of the new favorites!
Admittedly, our puppy is a chewer, so when she's able to annihilate toys quickly we chalk it up to her super chewer status. With this toy, however, it was more of a design flaw. The ropes and knots are not big enough to keep the tube from sliding off. The first time it was tugged from either end, the knot was pulled into the tube. We used pliers a couple of times to pull it back out, and even tried making the knots bigger. The tube still slid off quite easily. Once off, she chewed it to pieces (that's fine, it's expected) and we tied a all three ropes into one knot in the center. She'll still play with the rope wad occasionally, but it's certainly not heavy enough to really throw to her. Maybe this would be a good toy for a teeny tiny or older dog that doesn't want something to play with so much as just to carry around.
This is a very versatile toy that both my 50 lb pit bull and my 13 lb little dog love to play with. It's good for fetch, and the knotted rope on both sides make it good for playing tug-of-war with your pal, too. The rubber (silicone?) sleeve is very durable, too.
