Yes, I have the smaller two-handed tugs, about 3" in diameter, and then pocket tugs that are 12x2ish and one-handled. The small ones have proven to be quite robust in the few weeks that I've had them...lots of tug/fetch games with my dog in the snow, they've gotten soaked and frozen many times over already. And I like 4dogtrainers.com, used them a few times now for various stuff, they have about the best deal on harnesses around. I meant to just by one tug to try it out but they really dump on the "...for a few dollars more..." deals that I cannot resist. Spent about $40 inc. shipping for the four I have now. :wink:
Slightly bigger one (just noticed the site...mine did NOT come with the nice tapered leather ends or whatever they are...just rolled french linen...he may have been taking some entrepreneurial license there...)
I just received my tugs in the mail today (ordered them on the 15th, they were sent UPS Ground).
I ordered four of the 1-handled puppy tugs. Overall, they seem pretty sturdy. Although its not specified on the website, they are pretty stiff as far as tug toys go. I'm assuming they'll soften up over time/use. I wouldn't recommend a brand new one for a really young puppy, unless you have a really strong biter. It would need to be broken in a little for a young pup to get a good grip.
I'll keep y'all posted on how they stand up to Ace's tugging. He's not the hardest biter, but he's a tugging maniac. Just for reference, the tugs we had been using were the leather tugs from Bridgeport Equipment. I just didn't like them because they're slimy when wet.
