I brought a small and a large version of this rope ring, looking for a toy that would withstand the rigors of some dogs who have a tendancy to chew. I was pleasantly surprised at the good quality of these toys. The small one is a little less than the size of a dinner plate and the larger one big enough to go over the head of a larger sized Labrador (much to his disgust!). Compared to other rope toys, the rope appears to be more tightly held together thus sustaining a prolonged chewing attack for longer. Undoubtedly, at some point, with regular chewing, the ring will eventually break up, but compared to some others I've seen around, its holding up pretty well at the moment. A decent price for a well made toy.
