My German Shepherd puppy went nuts for this tug the second I got it out of the box! She wasn't much for tugging until we got this tug, but now she's a tugging maniac!

My 7 month gsd loves rags and prey like toys much more then plain tugs so I decided to get a furry tug in addition to my others. This definitely increased his enthusiasm when tugging but be ready for your hands to get wet!
Furry Fleece Tugs
These tugs are made from a fuzzy fleece material. This one handled tug is 12.5 inches long with a circumference of 7 inches.
Training tugs are a very important part of working a dog in training. Many people think they are only used for puppy work. These people are wrong. The shorter tugs are a great training aid for drive building and are used throughout the life of the dog.
Tennis balls are very, very hard on dogs teeth. Bite tugs are a much better alternative. Bite tugs are also much better than solid hard rubber balls on strings. When a young dog is accidentally hit in the head with a hard rubber ball he will lose drive. When the same dog gets hit by a tug he ignores the situation and continues to chase in drive.
The tugs vary in length and diameter, which one you use will vary according to the goal of your training.
Drive building in adult dogs is always done with the smallest tug. These tug have one handle or two handles. It can be moved very, very quickly. The goal of drive building with a small tug is to move it around your legs and body at a speed that the dog can not get at it. Moving them around in short quick movements forces the dog to move quickly if he has the drive to catch it - when the dog misses the tug it builds frustration and frustration builds drive. Using the longer tugs does not work because the dogs are too quick. It's too easy for them to grab a long tube or the second handle on these longer tugs. So it's much easier to play "keep away" with this smaller tug.
