Use to to teach tug for dogs that are not tug motivated or to teach a dog to tug harder, our Scent Bag is made of heavy-duty, durable PVC-coated, fiberglass-reinforced mesh it has no exposed seams (even the side seams are finished). Fill with a semi-soft treat - stinky cheese, chicken, hotdogs or pungent dried tripe - and watch your dog “drive” to the smell. The harder the dog "bites" the mesh pouch, the more food squeezes through the mesh and the more the dog is reinforced. Or fill with a dried treat and use for training lead-outs or distance. A Velcro pull-open top gives quick access to treats. Measures 8” wide by 4” deep (20cm by 10cm). Large 7” (18cm) handle. Length: 22" (57cm). Machine washable, cold water; hang to dry. Salty Dog toys are designed only for interactive play with your dog. Supervise your dog at all times. They are not designed for chewing.
I bought this toy to teach my dogs to tug and now I would not want to be without it! We use it for all our training sessions. There are no signs of the material coming ripping or shredding. The pouch has softened from my dogs’ saliva, which is a good thing as it allows Murphy to get a better grip for tugging. I wash it in the kitchen sink after the dishes and it dries on the counter overnight.
My Field Cocker Spaniel had no interest in tugging so I put a duck wing in the K9 Scent Bag and being a bird dog he grabbed it and wouldn’t let go. Now he’s crazy about tugging!
I love your Scent Tug. My dog destroys everything and the fact your Scent Tug has lasted months and has just started fraying a bit is amazing.
