All variations have knots on each limb to prevent your pup from ripping them off as well.

        How durable is “durable”?

        Tuffut Technology

        HuggleHounds uses their own “Tuffut” technology to create all of their toys to make them long-lasting and durable for dogs of all sizes. Every Hugglehound Knottie contains two layers of durable fabric to sustain heavy chewing from aggressive dogs. The outer layer is made of laminated Oxford polyester, and the inner layer is made with a polyester mesh material. You can see the bright green layer of laminated fabric to the right which makes these toys so incredibly chew proof. The two layers of Tuffut technology, the stitching, and the fabric are all made from high quality materials and go through extensive testing to ensure durability.

        Heavier chewers will definitely chew through the first layer; fortunately, there’s also a mesh layer  underneath that will help keep the toy from falling apart. Once the outer layer is destroyed, you can easily re-sew it to extend the life of the toy. All of the seams are internal to prevent your pup from ripping them out immediately. The eyes of all variations are sewn on with heavy chewers in mind, and all of the aesthetics are embroidered on to prevent your pup from chewing them off.
