Description

The Leather Tug with No Handles has a 2 1/2" diameter and a 6 1/2" circumference.

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.

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.

Notes

Please keep in mind when ordering that all of our leather tugs are handmade. We try to be as exact as possible with the sizes and colors, but variances do occur.

Great tug to use for targeting and building drive. Although not as tough as I thought my 1 year old Dutch Shepherd put 2 holes in it in about 1 month of tug play. I didn’t leave it for him to chew on obviously.
