Description

This leather mini-tug is 10" Long x 7" Circumference with 1 handle.

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 tubes are a great training aid for drive building and are used throughout the life of the dog.

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.

This jute tug has lasted 2 years with my German Shepherd. This is not a hard round jute toy. It is flatter and has some play in it for the dog to sink his teeth into. I have tried a lot of them. This one is hard to find, but is the one you want. You will not be disappointed.
