Our T-R Tug is one of the Border Collie Reason’s favorite tug toys. We use two pieces of silky soft Icelandic Shearling 5” (12.7cm) long, 1/2" (12mm) thick that's eco tanned without the use of heavy metals and meets European Union regulations for an environmentally friendly tanning process. Between the shearling is a 2” (50mm) diameter Megalast® ball. Made in the USA, these balls rinse clean, float, are infused with vanilla extract, will not wear down your dog's teeth and have a solid core so they won't split. The 1” (25mm) soft-touch yellow tubular nylon climbing webbing forms a continuous loop and is triple-stitched to the shearling. Our GRIP ULTRA bungee inserted in the webbing has three times the resistance than standard bungee giving you the maximum shock absorption. Measures 8” (20cm) in diameter and folds nicely in your hand and fits in your pocket. Cold water machine wash, hang to dry.
Comfortable to hold with a tough tugger, though I'd like to see this tug minus the ball.
It has a very satisfying amount of give in the bungee portion -- not too much, not too little -- and works perfectly with my tenacious tugger, a border collie. It is especially good for agility practice as it can be scrunched up in the hand for concealment and the ball gives it enough heft to toss it accurately for reward placement. Great toy!
My Tervuren is a picky dog when it comes to toys. A friend of mine turned me onto your products and I am SO THRILLED!!! I bought two of them, a B12 and the T-R Tug. He is in LOVE with these toys! I am so excited because he is tugging on them beautifully and they are small enough to hide when training. I highly recommend these products.
