Dog Boy Tug Toys
Dog Boy Tug Toys are designed to be an interactive durable training aids for dogs with their humans. They are a reward for an appropriate behavior during training. They are not chew toys for bored dogs. Some dogs if left unsupervised, will destroy and/or eat anything they put their mind to eating. This could include these toys. Although they are durable, they are destructible and certainly not digestible. Choose the toy construction combination that fits your dog and how you plan to train with it.
These toys are made by a retired fire fighter and dog handler who trains live-find and human remains detection dogs. Each toy is custom made by hand and are unique. If you want a toy made in a particular way, make note of it in your order. The toys need to work for you and be enjoyed by your dog.
After years of making toys for Search Dog teammates and their dogs for fun, I started selling them.
Tug Toys are a key tool for many Disaster Search Dog Teams. Playing Tug-O-War is a favorite reward system to encourage a search dog to find a person buried in a collapsed building. When the search dog finds a trapped victim’s scent and the dog gives the proper alert that tells their handler that they have found the source of the scent, the subject/scent source rewards the dog with a game of tug-o-war.
All of the Fire Hose used is repurposed and the hardness or widths can vary. Tell us what you need and we will match hose to your dog’s preferences.
These toys are made of 2 inch tubular webbing and are softer on the dogs mouth. The can be made in any length with more color choices. Colors/quantities depend on availability.
All toys are hand made using Fire Hose, Climbing Rope or Webbing.
The standard toy is 8″ to 12″ long with a looped handle leash proportional to the toy. We will make a toy to your specifications.
I have adapted tennis balls for tugging too for your ball-crazy dogs.
