One issue flyball competitors have with water bottle toys is that some dogs hit the webbing above the bottle pouch and after a few trials the webbing tears. This toy offers the perfect solution and has a new look and a new level of toughness and durability. A protective sleeve — a DeLaval silicone milker (properly known as "inflation") — slides over the webbing just above the pouch opening. Made of thick, 1-1/2" (38mm) reinforced shag fur lined with a tightly woven, heavy gauge fiberglass-reinforced exterior mesh. With an 11” (28mm) circumference it’s built to survive the hard-hitting tuggers and is very THICK! The pouch portion measures 11” (28cm) long and fits a 16oz bottle (thicker soda bottles are best). A continuous length of 1” (25mm) soft-touch, tubular nylon climbing webbing is double-stitched to both sides of the fur pouch. Our GRIP ULTRA bungee inserted in the webbing has three times the resistance than standard bungee giving you the maximum shock absorption when working with powerful tuggers. Copper 1" (25mm) fur, black webbing. Use with or without a bottle. To insert the bottle slide up the milker, insert bottle then slide the milker down over the webbing. Length: 28” (71cm) long; stretches to 36” (91cm). Large 7" (18cm) handle. 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.
My tough tugger would manage to destroy his bottle tugs in about 6-8 weeks, by scissoring the strap where it connects to the tug. We’ve used the Super H + Guard for several practices and he has not been able to even reach the strap!
My Malinois Mix loves this toy! The milker slows down his goals of chomping through the webbing so this toy lasts way longer than a normal crunchy tug but is just as fun.
Perfect tug for dogs that grab your hand
My young dog was hitting the bungee handle and my hand on his bottle tug. This style, with the guard, is perfect. He stays below the guard when tugging. Love this tug so much I ordered another.
Works Great With or Without a Bottle
For my Whippet I use this toy without a water bottle and for my sport mix I use a water bottle. My friend who has this tug has Aussies and Dobermans and does not use a water bottle.
