Zoolove is a new dog toy brand only available in Zooplus, the shop where I buy my dog's kibble, it has been made specially for them and they can not be found anywhere else. Not only the Zoolove dog toy range looked like decent and something that my dog might enjoy, they also give away 10% of the price to an animal charity so I decide to buy Away the Jute Rope Ring to play tug with him.
The first impression I got when I received the ring was that it was made of high quality rope, with a classy small brown label with the words "Zooplus" that was quickly ripped to tiny pieces by my dog.
I have had the jute rope for three months now and still going, in case you don't know, many professional dog training toys are made of jute too, it is a vegetable fibre made that can be spun into coarse strong threads and besides dogs loving it, I am witness of that, it will not damage your dog teeth.

I, and my dog Away, were very happy with this toy for the first month, I should say that my dog Away is not a strong biter, he hasn't got strong jaws like a Pitbull or Rotweiller and his tennis balls last him a year, well, the Zoolove Jute Rope Ring lasted him a month....

After a single month of playing with the ring, he undid it and made it into a a long rope, you can still use it to play games with him but it is not the same as having a ring that is easy to grab, the problem, is not the quality of the jute which remains strong after having been bitten often, the problem lies in how it has been put together, when the ring came apart I saw that sellotape had been used under the rope to keep it in shape.
My advice on this toy, it should last you for many years but don't expect it to keep a ring shape after a few weeks, no way that the shape will last, but, you can tie your own knots and still have fun with it.
Despite everything, I would still recommend this toy if you need a strong thick string, it is the first time I have a jute rope and it looks like the fibres can help cleaning my dog's teeth, I loved the coarse texture and high resistance.
