It’s no mistake that the Gnawt-a-Cone dog toy looks the part of a Ponderosa pine cone. The designers at Ruff Wear drew inspiration from their beloved Bend, Oregon backyard when designing this fun and functional dog toy.
Constructed of durable, chew-resistant latex rubber, the toy is obviously great fun for simple throw and fetch activities, but it has some “performance” features too. Multi-faceted sides effectively massage your dog’s gums as it enjoys play. This design also causes erratic bounces to keep your dog guessing and add a surprise element of fun. A sizable internal chamber can stash biscuits or other treats to aid in training or simply add to the fun.

Real Customer Reviews
- Keeps the dog busy
Likes: Solid construction. Has survived some heavy chewing. Bounces randomly as advertised.
- Super fun to play fetch with.
Likes: It bounces semi-erratically, which is fantastic if your dogs are a bit faster than your throw is, as they often have to turn to chase it down. Another great thing is it seems more visible than tennis balls are? This could just be my dogs, of course, but they seem to be able to track it a bit easier. Whether this is due to the shape or noise, or due to the color (i happened to purchase blue), I'm not sure, but it is a bonus for dogs who lose track of toys easily!
Seems to be pretty good at shedding dirt thus far, and collapses in on itself when you squeeze hard, which seems like it should prevent it from being torn apart by heavy chewing. Not sure about destruction-oriented chewing, however.
Dislikes: The inside has a few ridges, which means larger treats may get stuck in there. However, due to its ability to be squished while chewed on, I'm pretty sure your dog could either break the treat inside to remove it, or you could dislodge it with a bit of effort, and get it out that way.
