Most dogs today live within an environment created for humans. They live indoors most of the day with some outdoor breaks. Dogs are genetically and instinctively designed to be on the move and live in a state of awareness. They are highly intelligent and share all the same emotions we have…. stress, boredom, joy, etc, Therefore, it is essential to stimulate their needs that connect them to being a dog so that they can feel happy, healthy balanced, and whole.

Keeping your dog’s teeth clean is an added benefit to Tug Attack™ Tug toys The toys handwoven soft fleece tug ropes are soft and gentle on even the most tender teeth and gums, cleaning them as your dog grips, chomps and tugs. Almost every dogs loves a good game of tug of war but sadly there are plenty of small breeds known to be prone to rotten teeth especially as they age. Tug Attack tug ropes are woven to be super strong, resilient and durable but they are also super soft because they are made out of heavy gauge cushiony fleece. Spray some Wickedly Potent! all natural teeth cleaner on the rope beforehand for added cleaning action.
Tug ropes are also sold separately as refill rope for Tug Attack toys or just as a separate tug rope for play. All our handwoven tug ropes are washable. Just thrown them in your washing machine with some towels or rags and toss into the dryer.
Virtually no toy can hold up to a dog that is set out to destroy it.

Our tug ropes are extremely durable. Your dog can have years of fun with the same rope or months of fun depending on your dog.

Woven Fleece Material Tug Ropes Vs Standard Multi- String Machine Made Tug Rope
Safe Vs Not Safe
Veterinarian Thumbs Up On Owiee Fleece Material Tugs.
**Ask your veterinarian to share with you the dangers of the standard multi string tug ropes on the market today.
**Aside from being hard and rough on your dog’s teeth and gums the string ropes become a serious life threatening danger when your dog chews on them and they begin to unravel and the strings separate. It is very dangerous for dogs (or humans) to swallow string. Swallowed string is known to twist around your dog’s intestines and begin to strangle them, cutting off blood supply and oxygen amongst other dangers. Often major surgery needs to be performed to save your dog life. This is not just scary but costly. Since this is a real danger, is life threatening, and given the realistic chance of your dog swallowing these strings, it’s just not worth it. Our tug toys are soft fabric. If your dog chews off fleece pieces and eats them, they’ll just as easily poop it out.
Toys that allow dogs to indulge in their natural prey instincts do not make dogs more aggressive. They actually keep dogs happy, healthy and balance.
Dogs are SMART!
They know the difference between ripping out the stuffing of a stuffed toy vs a real animal just as Drug sniffing dogs know the difference between sniffing out a drug or a cookie.
