Ruff Roots are 100% natural dog toys that offer a sustainable alternative to rubber or plastic toys. Ruff Roots originate from the roots of shrubs or trees in the Mediterranean Heathlands. All Ruff Roots are hand-harvested and eco-sustainably sourced from Spain. Only the tuber of the root is harvested which then sprouts again. Ruff Roots are great chew toys for furniture chewers or any dog that loves to play with sticks. Unlike sticks or furniture wood, Ruff Roots do not splinter. They serve as a natural toothbrush and help decrease plaque on teeth. Ruff Roots are also great teething toys for growing puppies! Ruff Roots are best for keen and powerful chewers. They are extremely long-lasting. They are made by nature and bring our four-legged friends back to their roots!
