Saber tried to eat rope toys too. I have an alternative for those interested, that I think is safer. Target has these toys that are the same shape/length as a rope toy but it is 3 strips of thick fuzzy fabric woven together in a braid with a knot at each end. We use those for tug in training. Saber never has gotten any pieces off of it and it holds up well (but I still wouldn't leave it unattended, we only use it for tug). They are only $3.
Also be careful fetching with sticks with your dog. When I was a kid we threw sticks for our dog Scooter to fetch. One time we threw the stick and it landed stuck into the ground, she ran to fetch it by the end and jabbed the stick all the way into the back of her throat where it got stuck with blood gushing out. A vet was able to fix it, but I never fetch with sticks due to this.
