The bungee handle is made from soft-touch nylon covering two pieces of shock cord. It is designed to act as a shock absorber between the trainer and the dog, so that the trainer can be more comfortable while tugging. It also provides exciting resistance to the dog without the trainer having to pull hard on the toy.This keeps tugging fun for the dog, but makes tugging easier on your body! The tension is just right for this purpose; you don't need to worry about the toy flying back at you or the dog.
This tugging toy has a 16"-long bungee handle and is made from natural-looking faux fur. The bite area is 13" long and 1.5" to 2" wide, depending on which bite insert you choose. The velcro-seal top allows you to easily switch out inserts.

Firm (white): made from high-density foam for dogs that really want to chomp into something, and has a 2" wide bite area.
Tugs are not chew toys
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.
