Non-toxic real rabbit fur with a heavy duty squeaker buried inside, this toy is pawsitively irresistible to young puppies, toy and mini dogs and is the perfect toy for obedience or confirmation training of all dogs. THIS IS NOT A TUG TOY! Created for Mindy and her Italian Greyhound puppy, it measures 3-3/4” (95mm) in diameter and has a 4” (101mm) tail. (Our fur comes from Spain from rabbit that is farm raised for meat and is all natural not dyed.) A "tug" strand made of 1" (25mm) wide elastic by 16" long (6mm by 406mm) is optional. Cold water hand wash, hang to dry. Dogs must be supervised at all times. This toy is not appropriate for chewing.
Our golden retriever puppy, SALTY ( I know, how ironic) absolutely adores real fur toys/items and uses the bunny mouse as a soother. Salty plays so gently with it and uses it like a binky... She has loved every item we've purchased from Saltydog, the quality is outstanding!
This is a great toy that I got for me sheltie. Problem is keep in mind a fierce, violent tugger will likely destroy this toy after one tug session. I imagine at least. What is great about this toy and what I was looking for was something that sort of wiggled like a live animal to get some prey drive excitement. My Belgian Shepherd loves this and wants to chase it but I would be careful using this on a dog her size. This would be an excellent choice for a dog that isn't sure/confident about tugging and a good intro toy to use I imagine.
Got a 2yo husky mix from the shelter who's never had a home before so it took some adjusting to have her settle down in ours. Her prey drive was insane and she didn't like to play with toys. Needed something to satisfy her prey drive and this worked! Brought this with the elastic and a large wand off amazon to tie it to. It's become one of her favorite outdoor toys. She's on her best behaviour when this toy comes out. It ripped after a few plays and the squeaker has come out of it but she doesn't seem to mind. We use the bunny tug for indoor play too. Put it in the washing machine in a mesh bag and it's come out just fine. Would definitely buy some more of these. They have been well worth the purchase! Would love if it was sold in a multipack of 3 with different color furs.
I took the bunny mouse toy to the vet with me and used it to keep my dog entertained in a stressful environment. He loved pulling on it and watching it spring away on its elastic band.
