Our tugs are filled with high quality cotton fibre, the handles are the strongest nylon and they are stitched with heavy duty 277 commercial thread. These tugs last and are an excellent biting surface for your dog. We use Leather tugs for a number of reasons, number one being they build super grip in your dog. Another is they are very easy on a dogs teeth, you would be surprised at the damage Jute can cause to your dogs teeth where Leather causes none.
Leather helps softer dogs that are hesitant to play tug, really get into the game.
Don't think for a moment that Leather will not last, it is super durable and a great surface for your dog to bite on.
