Description

This is a synthetic tug made of firehose material. These tugs are strong and durable. The 15" tug is ideal for dogs who have a tendency to want to chase the handles of a tug or are working on their targeting skills (learning where on the tug they are supposed to bite.) The tug is long enough so that you can use both hands comfortably at the ends of the tug and still have enough room for your dogs mouth. These tugs are also easy to slip into your pant pockets so you can quickly access them as an obedience reward. If you are looking for the smaller, 1 handled version of this tug, check out the 10" Yellow Firehose Tug.

Tugs are not chew toys

This is a photo of a tug that was left unattended with a young dog (6 to 8 months) for about 20 minutes. Tugs are not chew toys and should never be left with dogs alone. When tugs are used correctly, they last for a very long time. When they are left unattended with a dog they may only last minutes.

This makes a great transition from food rewards for a dog with an abundance of drive. It doesn't bounce away like a ball. (Read that last sentence three times). After introducing my pup to a tug with handles and engaging in relationship games, he wants to get a bite in and is familiar with the feel of this. I can slip it in my pocket and present it quickly.

As a former Police K9 Officer, I've always used the firehouse tug to play with and reward my dog. It's durable and easy to slip in a pant's pocket or to hold in my armpit to drop to my dog for correct heeling position. And, the length is perfect allowing me enough room on the sides of his mouth to grab ahold of and play a fun game of tug with him.

Our working dog Deja loves it. Easy to carry around. Fits in a jacket nice and easy to hold on to for tug work.

I bought one for my dog after he had two admoninal surgeries for eating parts of toys...he could NOT tear the firehose into pieces...Yay for indestructable toys!
