We've done some redesign work to this toy, which is why we're calling it 2.0. We've changed the nylon webbing to a product that is incredibly soft on the hands, but is still extremely durable. We've changed the material on the cover to a thicker sherpa, and we've added a bit of padding to the bite bar to provide just a little more structure.
Named after office dog Brite, the "bungee" portion of Brite's Bungee Bar Tug is a handle made from soft-touch nylon covering a piece of flat 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.
The bungee handle is 12" long and stretches to a maximum of 24". The heavy-duty, super-soft nylon webbing goes all the way through the "bar" portion of the toy for strength. The bar in Brite's Bungee Bar Tug is 9" long, 1-1/2" wide, and 5/8" thick. It consists of sherpa material wrapped around the nylon webbing and a piece of padding which provides more structure to the bite area; there is no stuffing of any kind in the toy. The total length of the toy from end to end is 21".
Because of the low profile of the bite area, this is an excellent toy for stuffing in your pocket or hiding away.
Machine washable. Assorted color bungee handles; please allow us to choose for you.
Not only is this toy is made in the USA, all of the materials are USA made!
