While it appeared to be made of rope from the online materials, it is made out of fleece, and the tennis ball was thin and easily destroyed. I gave it to my lab mix and it was destroyed within minutes. The fleece chewed through and in shreds and the tennis ball in pieces. I was very disappointed because I had been very excited to receive it and it was eaten in moments.
