My dog loves the sliding stuffiness to tug!
We use dedicated professional tug toys when playing tug. I was surprised what a huge hit this toy is for tug with my Golden. We use a bungee ring with a stuffed bite surface normally, and my dog adores this toy for tug.
I have an easy handle, she has a great grip surface on the other bug and I have loved how sturdy the t-shirt ropes are.
This is a sturdy toy for tug. My girl is not a big chewer, so she likes to parade with this and lay on it.
