Benes Bungee Ball Tug
Bene's Bungee Ball Tug is 21" long and designed for ball-loving dogs that also like to tug. Not only is an excellent toy for tugging, it's a great fetch toy and you can throw it very accurately in training.
The "bungee" portion of this toy is made from soft-touch nylon covering special shock cord. It is designed to act as a shock absorber between you and the dog so that you'll be more comfortable while tugging and to provide exciting resistance to the dog without you actually having to pull hard on the toy. This keeps tugging fun for the dog, but makes tugging easier on your body! The tension is just right for this purpose; you don't need to worry about the toy flying back at you or the dog.
Bene's Bungee Ball Tug uses a 2.5" diameter Tuff Ball for the tennis ball portion. These balls have extra-thick natural rubber walls which provide extra durability. And, no chemicals are added for bounce as is done with "human" tennis balls plus the nonabrasive felt won't wear down a dog's teeth like "human" tennis balls do. Tuff Balls are lead-free. Besides the required surface-coating testing for lead that must be done by a third-party lab (Consumer Testing Laboratories, Inc.), the company conducts additional unrequired tests using gas chromatography and atomic absorption spectroscopy to test all of their dog toys for lead and other heavy metals. The FDA maximum acceptable lead content for surface coatings is 660ppm and the Tuff Balls tested at less than 7ppm, which is less than the lead concentration found in most tap water.
