The Jolly Pets Romp-n-Roll Dog Toy ticks all the play boxes. Not only is it great for traditional tug-of-war (a perfect game for teaching shared play!), but the attached ball also makes it an awesome fetch toy. The entire toy floats, even when punctured (which is tough to do), so it’s ideal for flinging off the dock for four-legged swimmers, too. 

As noted in our Buyer’s Guide, making sure the rope toy fits your dog is important. The Jolly Pets Romp-n-Roll comes in three different sizes for all breeds of players and comes 90% recommended on Chewy. It’s made of non-toxic materials, but it’s always recommended to supervise your dog while playing and throw it away if/when the toy starts to unravel. The rope feature also performs double duty: it “flosses” your pup’s teeth while he or she tugs. 

Jolly Pets pride themselves on the enrichment factor of their toys. They were founded in 1994 as a subsidiary of the equine industry’s Horseman’s Pride. And all of their toys are backed by a manufacturer’s guarantee. Check out some 5-star reviews:

  • “My doggo loves the ball-rope feature. While not small enough to chew, it is a great change-up from basic rope toys and allows for role-play as well. Rope has held up well when up against my dog (avid tugger) and the ball shows no signs of wearing down (My dog loves to chew, but doesn’t typically tear things apart so I can’t speak to that). I highly recommend for an active dog that is looking for a new toy to tug and fetch.”
  • “Durable and great color to locate.”
  • The rope is nice for tugging but after that’s done and all ratted you can just remove and still have a very durable toy!”
