Rose asked us to design a fake fur tug toy, without a ball, and one that she could conceal in her hand when training her dog. Fits nicely in the palm of your hand (see photo) or stuffed in a pocket. There’s an 8” (20cm) long thick, soft plush fur bite area that is folded in half and triple stitched to 1” (25mm) soft-touch tubular nylon climbing webbing. Our GRIP ULTRA bungee inserted in the webbing has three times the resistance than standard bungee giving you the maximum shock absorption. Measures 16” (40cm) long; stretches to 20” (50cm). Oversize 7” (18cm) handle. Machine wash, cold water. Hang to dry.
This is a great tug toy! My dog has trouble holding onto ropes or silicone tug toys, and destroys the braided fleece type from the store so this was the best of both worlds. The fur part makes it easier for him to hold onto, and the tug part is very tough and well made. Plus the bungee makes it fun and easy to tug, and it throws far. The inner loop is only about the size of your fist, so this might not work for a dog with a huge jaw . The length was more than enough - I'm 5'8 and my dog is 15" in height and I don't have to bend down to play.
It really does fit in my hand as advertised. I love that I can hold it in my hand or whip it out of a pocket for a really big surprise! The bungee adds another level of fun while protecting my shoulder! Whoever designed this tug gets a big thumbs up!!
