All Tearribles

What are Tearribles?

Tearribles are interactive toys, designed to cater to dogs’ prey drive. They contain special pocket compartments which house detachable limbs and tail. Tearribles allow your dog to experience the satisfaction of “killing their prey” while keeping them mentally and physically stimulated.

What are interactive toys?

Interactive dog toys are toys designed to challenge your dog’s problem-solving skills, provide them with mental stimulation, and strengthen your bond through play. Just fifteen minutes of mental stimulation is equivalent to twice that time of running, and is a great way to calm a high-energy dog. Interactive toys have the highest propensity to provide you with endless training opportunities, and often happen to be your dog’s favorite toys to play with (hint: tennis ball, for example, is an interactive toy).

My dog tears up plush toys in seconds- why would Tearribles be any different?

Tearribles are designed to help you stop that behavior, while providing your dog with an outlet to exercise their prey instincts. Dogs are smart, and if you introduce your Tearrible through an interactive game (tug and fetch for example), they quickly understand that Tearribles are your together toy. From that point on, your dog will stop trying to annihilate the toy, and will instead bring it to you to put back together when all limbs are off.

Dogs chew non-food things for two reasons:

  1. they are teething
  2. they are bored
Just be there to put the toy back together for them, and your dog will get to enjoy their Tearrible for a long time.

Are Tearribles chew toys/indestructible toys?

No. Dog teeth, no matter how small, are built to crush bones and tear tendons- there is no material (safe to be in your dog’s mouth) that your dog cannot chew through.

The outside of Tearribles is made of Velboa (the plush-like fabric used to make blankets), which is then lined with mesh for added support. The limbs are attached to the toy via industrial-strength velcro, which provides just enough resistance to give your dog the satisfaction of “killing their victim,” and allows you to put the toy right back together for continuous play.

What size Tearrible should I get for my dog?

Tearrible Tiny is 5” tall (approximately the height of a soda can), and is designed for dogs with very small mouths, like Chihuahuas, Shih-Tzus, Yorkies, and other miniature breeds.

Tearrible Medium is 10” tall (approximately the height of a roll of paper towels) is designed for dogs that are on a bit tougher side, but are not necessarily small or large dogs. They are enjoyed by Dachshunds and pit bulls alike.

Tearrible XL is 14” tall (approximately the height of a 2 liter bottle) and is designed for bigger dogs, with big mouths, who need a bit more of challenge (although we’ve seen a video of a very cute Corgi going at it as well).

Tearrible Maximus is 17” tall and is designed for medium to extra large dogs.
