Named after one of the office dogs, Bling, Bling's Bungee Ring Tug is one of our most popular toys—both dogs and trainers love it. This ring has two bite areas:
- A Dynamite Stick made from a "wicked purple" design sublimated tubular polyester webbing that is stuffed with fleece and wool fabric scraps rather than polyfill for durability and to create that perfect density of bite-ability—not too soft and not too firm. This bite area is 9" long and 1-1/4" in diameter. It is triple stitched to the bungee sections of the toy for extra strength.
- A color-coordinated faux fur, plush bite bar that is 9" long and 1-1/2" wide and has extra padding sewn underneath it. The nylon runs through the faux fur covering and is double stitched along the complete length of the fur area for toughness.
You can use either the stick or the bar as your tugging handle and let the dog pull on the opposite bite area. If your dog is a "re-gripper," the design of this toy keeps your hands safer because the dogs stay on their side of the toy and regrip from side to side rather than moving up the toy toward your hand.
The "bungee" portion of the ring is made from super-soft nylon covering special shock cord. It is designed to act as a shock absorber between you and the dog so that you'll be more comfortable while tugging and to provide exciting resistance to the dog without you actually having to pull hard on the toy. This keeps tugging fun for the dog, but makes tugging easier on your body! The tension is just right for this purpose; you don't need to worry about the toy flying back at you or the dog.
Machine washable on gently cycle; line dry.
Not only is this toy is made in the USA, all of the materials (even the material used for stuffing) are USA made!
