What is a Tuggo Toy?
The Tuggo is a new one-of-a-kind dog toy that uses weight to provide tension for dogs.The design is a hard, hollow plastic ball with a rope going through the middle that can be pulled from either side providing the tug-of-war effect. Additionally, the Tuggo has a recessed screw cap allowing the ball to be filled with water. Adding water inside the ball makes the Tuggo have a sloshing sound when it is being played with. This keeps your dog interested in the Tuggo for hours! When completely full of water, the Tuggo weighs approximately 20 pounds. This weight provides the tension that helps promote exercise and build muscle.
Since the minute these toys came out of the box, my German Shepherd, Kirek, has been in love with them! She loves to play tug-of-war and these are the perfect toys for her. I tried to get her picture with them and she wanted to get back on the floor and play with them. She is a Tuggo Toy fanatic!
I have to admit, I haven’t dared put any water in either ball yet. She already swings them around the room and bruises our shins. I’d hate to see the damage she could do with them weighing over 10 pounds.
One great use for the Tuggo Dog Toy at our house is for mortally wounding any trespassers. If I filled up one of the balls with water, I could just tell Kirek to get her “balls” and get the bad guy. LOL. She is a very good watch dog already, now she can be an armed watchdog. I’m pretty sure one of these balls filled with water could knock someone out.
My son and Kirek love to play tug-of-war and the Tuggo Dog Toy adds a whole new level of fun. It’s a riot to see Kirek trying to keep the ball away from Justin when she has the end of the rope and he has the other end. It’s great exercise for her and Justin.
One thing that would be a great addition to the Tuggo Dog Toy line would be the same product, but with a RUBBER ball instead of hard plastic. We all have bruises to show for that hard plastic. I think the rubber would be easier on the humans involved in the play!
Overall, if you have a dog that needs extra exercise, the Tuggo Dog Toy is perfect for your pup. The rope is tightly braided and will last a long while. If the rope does become ruined, you can buy a replacement at Tuggo Dog Toy website.
