A rabbit version of our popular fake fur Tug Trainer is the perfect toy to teach tug to dogs that are not tug motivated or to teach a dog to tug harder. It has all-natural rabbit fur on one side, reinforced mesh on the other and a waterproof liner in between. (Our fur comes from Spain from rabbit that is farm raised for meat and is all natural not dyed.) Fill the pouch with semi-soft treats such as cheese chunks, hot dogs or chicken. The harder the dog "bites" the pouch, the more food squeezes through the mesh and the more the dog is reinforced. A Velcro pull-open top gives quick access to treats. Soft-touch 1” (25mm) tubular nylon climbing webbing with a 7” (18cm) handle is stitched to the fur side. Measures 7” wide by 3” deep (20cm by 7cm). Length: 24” (61cm); stretches to 33” (84cm). Light-duty bungee. Finished side seams (no exposed seams) makes it easy to keep clean: after each use, clean with dishwashing detergent and rinse with water. Or machine wash, cold water; hang to dry. Not recommended for tough tuggers or large dogs.
I bought this for my 9 month old Sheltie, Kip, who is not a strong tugger. I wanted to see if I could encourage him to tug harder. So far he loves it, particularly the bungee handle. Its a very well made toy. He can't open the velcro by himself, its too strong. That's the only downside.
