FAQs | Active Ring

What are Active Rings and what makes them different from other dog toys?

Active Rings are designed to encompass a wide range of play styles to match your dog's innate desires to encourage a stronger bond between you and your pet. These versatile rings offer interactive and dynamic play experiences, from possession, to retrieval, to search-and-find games, catering to a variety of play preferences. It can be used for fetch, tug of war, water games, and much more! The lightweight ring design means it can be easily and comfortably looped or tied onto your leash or treat pouch strap, making it perfect for taking it out and about on adventures with your dog.

Are Active Rings safe for my dog to play with?

Yes, Active Rings are crafted with the safety and well-being of your dog in mind. They are made from high-quality durafoam that is non-toxic, free from harmful chemicals, and safe for your dogs teeth and gums. However, as with any dog toy, please supervise your dog while they play to ensure their safety.

What size are the Active Rings and which size is best for my dog?

Our Active Rings currently come in 2 sizes - Medium and Large. Our Medium rings are 20cm in diameter and 3-4cm thick, while our Large rings are 30cm in diameter and 4-5cm thick. We generally recommend our Medium size ring for dogs that weigh between 5-15 kg, and our Large rings for dogs that weigh between 15-35 kg.

This serves as a guide only. The most ideal ring size for your dog will vary depending on the different sizes and weights of individual dogs, the preferred uses for the ring, and your dog's play style. While no toy is indestructible, when used during supervised and engaged play and training, your Active Rings will provide hours of fun and value.

How durable are the Active Rings?

The Active Rings are crafted from high-quality, resilient durafoam that is design for active play with your dog. The intensity of the games you play with your dog and their individual play style will determine how long this toy lasts. This product is not designed as a chew toy and is not indestructible, and shouldn't not be left with your dog to chew on unattended. 

How do Active Rings benefit my dog's behaviour and well-being? Can it be used for joint-friendly games?

Active Rings promote essential mental and physical enrichment to create a happy and fulfilled dog. By satisfying your dog's natural instincts and desires through healthy outlets, you can reduce your dogs stress and improve obedience. You can also use the Active Rings to create many joint friendly games, such as tug and fetch by rolling the ring across the ground. Rolling the toy instead of throwing it like a frisbee is a much lower impact way to play fetch to help protect and preserve your dog's joints. 

Can Active Rings be used for training purposes?

Absolutely! Active Rings can serve as a valuable tool for training. By incorporating play-based training methods, you can motivate your dog to respond more quickly and eagerly to your commands. The rings can be used to create an exciting reward event in training sessions.

How do I clean my Active Ring?

Active Rings are easy to clean by rinsing them with warm, soapy water and allowing them to air dry. 

Are holes and teeth marks in my Active Rings normal?

Yes, the unique durafoam material of our Active Rings allows your dog to safely sink their teeth into the product. Marks and teeth holes are part of normal use, and a sign of how much fun your dog has had!

Can Active Rings be used for puppies and adult dogs alike?
