Quick (named after Val's spirited Belgium Malinois who “destructo” tested this toy for us) offers a mouth-hold for your dog and a handhold for you and folds to fit in your pocket. The double grip design gives you better leverage and makes it easier for you to tug with your dog. The circular design lets you toss it like a disc and it throws better than many single-handle tug toys. Two pieces of thick 10” (25cm) fake fur are 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 and saves your arm, shoulder and back when working with powerful tuggers. Measures 15” (38cm) long when folded in half; approximately 12" (30cm) in diameter. Machine wash cold water, hang to dry.
My boy LOVES his Quick Loop and I cannot get him to like another toy as much. He'll dig through and pick it out of a pile and is very sad when we are training to not have that toy appear. It drives me nuts because he has so much play and tug drive but totally wants that toy. If you guys ever quite making those, I need to buy 100 of them.
Thought I would give it a try for my 9-month-old young Chessie. He found it between the other toys I bought and stole it. As he came back immediately he got rewarded with a tug. It's great to teach tug with pulling back and forth and not sideways for healthier pulling. :o) Just what I was looking for.
The bungee sides allow a satisfying give, much appreciated by my vigorous border collie tugger. The dog can grip either of the two bite areas, and the handler can take hold of either area, which makes it easy to grab and to do quick releases and regrips. It folds nicely, and can be tucked in a bait bag belt or other belt. It also doesn't have any sharp edges where stitching irritates. the skin, as can happen with some toys. Love it!
It is so easy for me to tug in flyball. My dog tugs hard and the bungee makes it easy on my back. I ordered a few more.
