Description

Leather tug imported from Germany.

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 tug toy is excellent! It's very well made and durable. It should last you a very long time. I've used several different bit toys with my dog to play tug and to use for an obedience reward and most other have been destroyed within a short time frame.

My Malinois LOVES this tug. We do Agility and this tug is easy to get in and out of my pocket when we are running, but it's also easy for her to grab when she's going by me. We've had this tug for about a year now, and other than some stiffness from slobber, it's in great shape.

We've used one tug between two GSD/Husky mixes, who love to tug with this toy, for over a year now. It is still holding up great from all the use. I found it very easy to work with, it folds up great in the back pocket for walks, and the handles make it easy to get the toy out quick for a reward or to refocus my dogs on me.
